What is the Family Plus label ?

Family holidays are special occasions for both parents and their children. The FAMILY PLUS label has support from the national tourism promotion bodies, and is committed to providing facilities suited to families. To date, the label has been awarded to 115 resorts in France. Towns and villages with the label undertake to do everything they can to ensure that families and children have the best possible holidays, with 6 main commitments to adults and children :

   > Personalised welcome for families

   > Entertainments and activities to suit all ages

   > Different prices for different ages

   > Activities for adults and children which can be enjoyed together or separately

   > A full range of shops and services close at hand

   > Professionals on hand to look after your children
