What does luxury camping mean to you?
I can not wait for the school holidays. I am beside myself with excitement for where we’re going – I’m not even kidding. We’ve been to Jamaica (heaven); we’ve done Florida (so exciting!); and last summer we had the most incredible family holiday in Cambodia. It’s safe to say we’re a family that loves to travel. But the most fun we ever have? Camping. To be fair, when I say camping, I mean luxury camping, and it has to be further south than the UK – I want guaranteed sunshine, and the ability to spend all day in a swimsuit, rather like those girls on Love Island. (Okay, it’s nothing like Love Island, but a middle-aged mum can dream…)
Yelloh! Village takes luxury camping to a new level
Honestly, some of our best family holidays have been spent in a mobile home, on a campsite with swimming pools and water slides, cheesy entertainment, and fresh baguettes for breakfast. And as my children get older, the attraction is showing no signs of wearing thin. To the contrary, where kids clubs and flamingo floats may have been cast aside, the freedom of spending a week roaming the park with a bunch of new holiday friends is what appeals to my kids now. And for me, it’s the perfect way to give them some independence, knowing they’re in a safe space, around like-minded families, and no traffic to contend with. As long as they have enough cash for 27 ice-creams, they’re at their happiest. Which is absolutely a holiday for me. And if this sounds like your kind of break, the team at Yelloh! Village want to hear from you – keep reading, you could win a short break at one of their sites in France, Spain or Portugal.The other thing I love is that camping doesn’t need to involve discomfort. I’m happy to muck in for a couple of nights with friends in tents, but living out of a bag is not for me when it comes to a longer holiday. I need the sun, but I want air-conditioning when I come back from the beach. I want a proper shower, somewhere to cook, cold beers and a comfortable bed. Yelloh! Village campsites offer all that, as well as a more traditional camping experience for those more hardy than me!
Yelloh! Village have a choice of glamping tents, cottages and mobile homes, as well as pitches for your own caravan or tent, and with 81 luxury campsites across France, Spain and Portugal, there’s lots of choice for a family break in the sun. With organised activities and entertainment, and sports facilities and restaurants on site, Yelloh! Village describe their offer as an ‘open-air hotel,’ and it’s easy to see why you’d never need to leave your holiday village. But if you’re explorers at heart, you’ll be pleased to know that many sites are situated close to major towns, and even have direct beach access.
