Affordable Family Self-Catering Holidays in France with Matthews Holidays
Affordable family holidays are holidays with a change of scenery, plenty of activities for the children, some relaxation for the parents, a good sprinkling of fun and a sense of well being but above all a need to find some-where that parents will not need to keep digging into their pockets for spending money. The perfect receipt for this is a self drive holiday to France – the car can be packed with lots of day to day produce that has been bought in the UK reducing to a minimum the amount of euros that a family will need to spend. Fresh fruit and vegetables, fish, cheese and wine are unlikely to cost more in France than in the UK and the quality will be superb, so with a little thought and the children’s favourite breakfast cereals packed in the car, together with tea, coffee and soft drinks, catering for the family need not cost more than back home in the UK.

Your Mobile Home will have all the facilities of a modern kitchen and plenty of utensils, so that you will be able to whisk up a leisurely meal with the minimum of effort. Alternatively, get each member of the family involved and have a BBQ.

The French 4* Campsites that we use have wonderful swimming pool complexes with slides, plenty of free activities and provide evening family entertainment free of charge – no need to fork out for entrance tickets.

For most the adventure will begin on board ship where everything can be bought in sterling. We have already priced your holiday including the mobile home accommodation, gas, electricity, tourist tax, and site fees at a very favourable exchange rate, which will not vary so the benefits of this type of overseas holiday are huge. Buying as much as you can in sterling before you go will make your euros go further when you are on holiday.

If you don’t have a specific campsite in mind ask our Reservation Staff for today’s cost cutter Campsite – you will be amazed at the value.
