France is often thought of as a romantic place for couples and while it’s ideal for a lover’s getaway or a memorable honeymoon, it’s also great for a family vacation. With many of the hotels offering safe, outdoor spaces for the kids to run free, you can relax on-site while the youngsters unleash their adventurous side.
