Family-Friendly Spring Break in Provence, France

January 29, 2011

Been there and done that?  This spring, embark on a fun and cultural five-night family-friendly getaway in the charming region of Provence, France.

Where: The refined rustic Hotel Crillon le Brave is one of France’s most notable boutique hotels. Just 90 minutes North of Marseille, it consists of seven beautifully restored stone houses dating from the 16th and 17th centuries, which are linked by bridges, cobblestone walkways and hidden courtyards. Families who book the package receive spacious accommodations in a two-bedroom Junior Suite.

What’s Included:

Fun for the Little Ones:

Learn to speak French with entertaining lessons and games.

Throw on a chef hat and make signature French desserts. Think chocolate mousse, crêpes and rice pudding!

See how baguettes and croissants are made at a local boulangerie and how olive oil is bottled at a nearby mill.

Discover the village of Crillon le Brave with a treasure hunt!

Fun for the Grown-ups:

Do you speak perfectly incomprehensible “franglais”? Surprise everyone by coming home able to parlez francais like the locals with our vacation-friendly French lessons.

Sip exquisite wines from the Rhône Valley, paired with savory regional cheeses.

Unwind with body therapies at the open-air spa (additional fee).

Fun Times Together:

Experience an authentic Provençal BBQ and participate in a petanque competition (one of Europe’s most popular outdoor games).

Relax with a pizza and movie night – soda for the kids and wine for the adults!

Play tennis on the nearby court or bicycle through the historic cobblestone streets.

Don’t miss: Kayaking on the Sorgue River, horseback riding around Mont Ventoux, or teeing off on one of the most scenic golf courses imaginable.

When:   April 17- 22 and April 25 – 29, 2011

Rate:  The five-night package costs €2,290 for a family of four.
