Toddler tantrums, motorway traffic and moody teenagers are all part of the fun on a typical family holiday. Those who took advantage of the long Easter bank holiday by taking a trip across the channel are likely to have enjoyed some quality family time together, but were your jollies the jolliest?
This month we’re putting four families to the test to see who can have the happiest of holidays. From the moment they leave home, crossing the border and discovering the charms of France, we’ll be with them every step of the way to find out how relaxed, or stressed, they feel throughout the trip.
We’ll be using their experiences to provide recommendations for discovering the best of France and top tips on how to have the perfect family break.
To follow their adventures on Twitter, simply search for #happyhol or go to our Twitter page (Follow us ‘@cottages4you’).
Don’t forget, if you’d like to share your own holiday experience, you can join in by sending your own recommendations and fondest memories of France to email@example.com – entries shared before 31st July will be in with a chance of winning a bottle of fine French wine.
