5) Boat trip to St Tropez
If you’ve only ever heard talk about St Tropez, but never visited, we think you’ll be in for a surprise. It was nothing like we expected it to be (we were thinking flash high-rise condo’s of the rich and famous). Instead it’s a beautiful, small medieval old town with narrow, picturesque streets, curious little walkways and exclusive shopping boutiques and art galleries. The harbour is full of the yachts of the super-rich, and the harbour quays feature artists painting and selling their works of art. Try reaching St Tropez by ferry from Ste Maxime – it misses out on the worst of the traffic, the kids will appreciate the variety and you get a great view of the town as you approach it from the sea.

So in summary, there is plenty to keep the family entertained in this gorgeous region in the south of France. However, our main hint would be don’t try to do too much whilst on holiday there during July and August. Traffic can get pretty heavy and you don’t want to spend your precious holiday time in traffic jams. Be prepared to start of early if you want days out and mix these with laid back days at the beach or staying in your holiday accommodation, relaxing and lounging by your pool.
