5 of the Best Places to Visit on Family Holidays in France

Rocamadour: Clinging precariously to the cliffside, Rocamadour is a fascinating UNESCO World Heritage Site, home to the Chapelle Notre Dame and the Romanesque Gothic Basilica of St Sauveur. To access the site, the Grand Escalier (Great Staircase) passes up 216 steps to each of the three levels. Towering above the Alzou Canyon stand crumbling houses, towers and a castle keep where you can learn about the legend and history of Rocamadour. The area has been an important pilgrimage site on the ‘Way of Saint James’ for many centuries and you can walk in the footsteps of ancient kings.

Meyronne: The pretty village of Meyronne lies in the Midi-Pyrenees region of France and resembles a scene from a fairy tale with its cobbled streets and distinctive buildings that teeter on the riverbank. There’s plenty to explore on foot or by bike around the village itself or you can simply soak up the views down by the river as you snack on delicious French cheeses. It’s also a great place for mingling with the locals at one of the pavement cafes.

Souillac: Throughout the town of Souillac you’ll see ancient sites, stone houses with shuttered windows and strewn in wisteria, and vibrant squares where the locals gather for their morning coffee. The town is most famous for its 12th-century, Byzantine/Romanesque Abbey of Saint Marie which was designed in the shape of a Latin cross. You can also visit the ruins of Souillac belfry which was damaged during the Wars of Religion, see the collection of dolls and mechanical toys at the Musee de l’Automate, or cycle to the beautiful Jardins de Cadiot.

Saint-Vincent-de-Cosse: Standing above the Dordogne River between La Roque-Gageac and Saint Cyprien, Saint-Vincent-de-Cosse is a handsome village with ancient churches, Perigord-style houses, two small castles, and a stone fountain at its centre. Many of the buildings have round towers and painted shutters and a great way to see them on family activity holidays in France is by canoeing along the river, where you’ll also spy various chateaux on the hilltops. There are some wonderful walks around the village that lead you to vantage points looking out over the Dordogne countryside.

Carennac:  The village of Carennac is one of the most beautiful destinations on our family adventure holidays in France. Dusty stone cottages and 16th-century manor houses line the streets and lush countryside fringes the Dordogne River. Discover the medieval history which dates back to the 11th century at the Romanesque church of Saint Pierre and admire the ornate carvings, cloister and mise au tombeau sculpture. The Renaissance Chateau des Doyens, once home to the dean of the priory, is another magnificent site to explore and tells tales of fascinating Carennac’s past.

A wide range of wildlife spotted. We were extremely lucky to see Wild Dogs twice, a good number of White Rhino in Umfolozi and significant herds of elephant, Zebra and giraffe amongst many other animals.
Also had a good sighting of lions on our last day in Kruger.
Andrew, very well assisted by Trymore, was an excellent guide full of enthusiasm and a great host. Food prepared at the sites was very good as was the choice of restaurants on the occasions that we ate in towns.
There was a good close up experience with dolphins in Mozambique and it was the dolphins that approached the guests rather than the other way around.
The border crossing from Mozambique involved a lengthy delay as it was a Sunday and many workers travelling across to South Africa.
The lodges used were comfortable and well located.
Overall, a highly recommended trip for those who love wildlife although as always sightings can never be guaranteed.

Keith Ginnaw Southern Africa Safari: Kruger & Coast

Something of a bucket list holiday for me.
The combination of different locations was testament to the local knowledge of the tour organisers.
Yes the trip is full on, be prepared for the early starts and different activities, but they are worth it.
All very well organised, taking into account differing physical capabilities, and designed to get the best out of the specific area.
