France with Kids - Exploring Provence

June 27, 2012

FRANCE FAMILY TRIP - KID EXPLORING PROVENCE

Provence is an ideal place to vacation as a family in France and take your kids. So much to do, spectacularly beautiful, good weather, great food, culture, and each village has it's own special flavor. We've spent months and months exploring Provence many times on our family world tour and will continue to return.

As I am mention in my Best European Family Vacations post, Paris with kids is fabulous, and you might enjoy our fun  Paris travel guide, but France is better yet when you combine it with some more relaxed time in sunny Provence.

I first fell in love with the South of France almost 40 years ago when I was in my twenties. I was living in Milano, Italy and my boyfriend kept his yacht in Antibes where we visited almost every weekend to explore and relax. In some ways, little has changed in this lovely area and it's a joy to share the enchantment as a family. Yes, it is romantic for a single or couple, but fun for families too and can be done on a low budget even in high season.

In the photo above our daughter is exploring the Midi canal area of Agde, France, near our campsite called Le Neptune, where she so enjoyed the free kids camps in French.

I offered to arrange a short trip to Provence for a friend from abroad, end of August. I don't even know where to start, there are so many places I love down there, and this friend has never been there, so I have to make a selection of really interesting places... to cover in 4-5 short days...

Jeanne @soultravelers3

Wow, Nadine, there are sooo many great places in Provence, it is hard to decide on just 4 or 5 days.

The good news is you can break it up to several areas and maybe do 2 days each and see several villages in that area.

I really love the south of France and looking forward to a long stay when kidlet finishes her Mandarin and finally gets to live her dream of learning French! ;)
