I took my son to France by ferry this month with a friend and her daughter (both 4) as our husbands couldn't get time off and we stayed about 20 minutes from Cherbourg in a gorgeous big farmhouse (http://www.ownersdirect.co.uk/france/fr4625.htm) - it was the owners holiday home and they met us on arrival and gave us a tour. They welcomed us to use anything we wanted from the larder, fridge and cupboards and there was also a plentiful supply of games, toys, books and DVDs. It made our stay so easy because everything was on hand. The utility room was great as we did all of our washing before coming home too! Renting a self catering property has huge benefits as many parents will agree it's sometimes more relaxing to eat once the children are in bed so we did just that and dined al fresco after they were asleep with a bottle of cold rose in the gorgeous garden. Arranging the trip was easy, we emailed with the owners to confirm our arrival details and had one phone call to check through finer points and ask a few questions. For families it's so simple and the choice is huge - you come home eager to plan your next trip and find another hidden gem!
