Bordeaux & Aquitaine

Village de Vacances, Cauterets, Hautes-Pyrénées

Come to this lively children-centred resort surrounded by glorious mountain scenery if yours is a hyper-active family.

There’s skiing in winter and walking, rafting, canyoning and organised games in summer. You’ll have to forgo a modicum of comfort: rooms in modern buildings are functional and the restaurant is self service. But parents can enjoy a massage or hammam while children attend supervised kids’ clubs. Day trips and picnics are laid on, followed by evening dances and entertainments. Doubles from £379/ Cots are available on request.
