— Pick #1: Le Camp in Midi-Pyrénées, France

Le Camp is located in idyllic Tarn et Garonne, in the heart of rural France. A camp of six yurts, each holding two to four people, providing an eco-friendly yet comfortable family vacation — as adventurous as camping can be! Sally, the owner: “We know what it is like to travel with kids and how hard that can be. So we have all the kit and caboodle that you could possibly need for the kids here.”

— What’s there to explore?
A playing area for kids, quite spread out so families can either meet or enjoy plenty of personal space. You can do canoeing trips, explore local markets or jump into the natural swimming pool (if its wild inhabitants will let you, roaw!). Barbecues will fill up empty tummies!

— Pick #3: The Country House in Medoc, France

During a vacation in Medoc, Jane from the U.K. simply decided to stay, put her six-year-old son into school and turned the former ruins of The Country House into a stunning, “shabby chic” vacation home: “The house has the atmosphere that families have lived in it for years. It sounds awful but people sort of say there is a little bit of history around every corner. I have lots of toys and children’s books from my childhood there.”

— What’s there to explore?
Dressing up! There are many dresses — kids can absolutely free their imagination. It’s surrounded by quiet lakes, you can go surfing at wild Atlantic beaches or watch the occasional deer crossing the lawn. Kids have more than enough room just to be kids. And Bordeaux is just a 1.5 hour drive away.

— Pick #2: Jaci’s Lodges in Madikwe, South Africa

Let’s go on Safari! Jaci’s Lodges is a very family-orientated safari lodge in the amazing game reserve Madikwe. There are two adventurous game drives a day, leaving enough time in between to relax at the pool. Best of all: The area is Malaria free. Owner Jan tells me: “I think what makes it so special is the fact that you don’t need video games or television. The bush is the best video game in the world. Our children have never been bored and I think that is just inspirational.”

— What’s there to explore?
Come on, it’s a Safari! Parents might also like the ‘starbed’ with stunning views onto the wide night sky, the tree lodge bathtub overviewing the bush or the exquisite South African cuisine.

— Pick #4: Stokkoya Sjøsenter in Stokkøy, Norway

The beach houses of Stokkoya Sjøsenter are nicely interacting with the surrounding landscape of Støkkoy island. Most of it is still untouched, wild sheep graze on ancient fields and eagles can be seen gliding across the sky. What we like most is that even large families can absolutely afford renting a sub unit as well as enjoying the top-quality seafood & wines offered at the legendary beach bar.

— What’s there to explore?
The beach! It’s all about relaxing and down-time on the peaceful and quiet island. Catch fish for dinner, paddle or go sailing. And the kids? Just take rubber ducky for a warm bath in the sensational outdoor bathtub at the beach!
