Cycling 🚴

As a cyclist, have you always wanted to cycle one of the classics of the French Alps? From Parc Madeleine, you can climb the Col de la Madeleine. This pass has been included in the Tour de France no less than 25 times, making it an absolute classic. Not only cyclists like to come to the Alps, it is also a true paradise for mountain bikers. As a family, do you prefer cycling on flatter terrain? Then the extensive cycling network in Poitou-Charentes offers plenty of challenge.

Winter sports ⛷️

Apart from cycling enthusiasts, the French Alps are also the destination for a winter sports holiday. If you stay in a chalet or flat at Parc Madeleine, you can step straight from your accommodation onto the slopes. This holiday park is located in the popular winter sports area Le Grand Domaine. Perfect for an active (winter sports) holiday with children! Are you staying at Domaine Castellane? Then there are also several popular ski resorts within an hour's reach.

Hiking 🥾

Hiking on holiday, a fine way to see more of the area. Hiking in the mountains, the Alps is the place to be. Along the way, you will be rewarded with the most beautiful views, well worth the climb! Another wonderful place to hike is the Gorges du Verdon. Gorges du Verdon, we hear you think? Yes, because apart from water sports, there are also beautiful walks.

Water sports 💦

Surely the place for an active holiday with children on the water in France is the Gorges du Verdon. The azure-blue Verdon River runs through this 25-kilometre-long gorge. You can explore the gorge from the water in a canoe, kayak, pedalo or motorboat. These are rented at several places. Experience the Gorges du Verdon from a different perspective on the water, and find out how steep the rock walls really are. The truly adventurous can also opt for rafting, the rapids providing plenty of challenge!

Tired of the indoor climbing hall? Then come climb in France! This challenging sport definitely guarantees an adventurous family holiday. You can climb in the area around Gorges du Verdon or in the Alps. For every level, whether you are a beginner or more advanced, you will find a nice route. 

Horse riding 🐎

Perhaps not the first activity you think of, but if you love animals it is a lot of fun! Moreover, you really don't need to be experienced, even as a beginner you can go horse riding in France.
