Best for families
Take the kids on a holiday of a lifetime to Keycamp's treehouse in Dol-de-Bretagne, Northern France. This is the perfect chance to have a rustic break but with all the facilities you need to keep the whole family entertained. The treehouses are situated in 250 acres of park and woodland, complete with access to the campsite's amenities, including swimming pools, a bar and restaurant. Each treehouse is a thatched hut, built around a tree trunk with one double bed and four single beds. A large decked terrace ensures there's plenty of space for parents to relax as the sun goes down, while the kids rustle up dinner in the self catering canvas tent just below! 
Five nights for two adults and up to four children costs from £449, including a midweek return Dover-Calais ferry crossing.
