Do you want to give your children holiday memories to last a lifetime? Do you dream of sharing the joy of discovery with them and trying new things? Floating cabins or tree houses, barrels, retro caravans, caravans, yurts, tepees, barges… quirky accommodation is the perfect way to get a complete change of scene, without necessarily going to the other side of the world! You will definitely leave an impression on the hearts of your children, moments of immeasurable family happiness.

A bohemian night in a caravan as quirky accomodation

Hébergements insolitesIn Aix-les-Bains – Riviera of the Alps, the Greppes caravan or the caravan in the estate of Saint Cerice in the Drôme will allow you to share with your family a very original way of immersing yourselves in the nomad lifestyle. Discover another way of living and become a stall holder, Bedouin or gypsy for the weekend. Pretend that you’re part of a travelling circus, have a fun and lively evening with gypsy music playing in the background by the fire, and don’t hesitate to lose yourself in the music. Let yourself go, in this light, nomadic ambience, whilst telling your children traditional stories about gypsy life. Make the most of the surrounding countryside to teach them how to test their balance, do somersaults in the grass or acrobatics of all kinds, and have fun comparing your flexibility to theirs (watch out for cramps the next day ;-))! This is the perfect opportunity to introduce them to circus tricks!
