France and Spain with large family in July 2013

Jump to last reply

I 'm planning a family holiday to France and Spain next summer. We have 8 kids from 22 to 2yrs, We want to spend a week in Paris, to visit Mont Saint Michele and Puy du Fou, I have not got further than that. With our size family we would like to rent a cottage or stay in a bed and breakfast for a week or so, and then move. We plan to say a month and go over to Spain for at least a week.

I am thinking it would be easiest to spend the first week in Paris, then rent 2 cars to move around, and to drive to Spain. I would love suggestions of places to stay/visit. We are thinking of staying in Northern Spain as it would be less driving. We have 3 young adult children, 4 boys between 15 and 6 and our little girl will be 3 next summer. We live in Barbados so we are not looking for a beach holiday. Castles, forest, mountains would all be exciting for the boys. I look forward to your suggestions!
