We are a family of 5 (son aged 6 and twin daughters aged 4) travelling from Calais to Perpignan at the beginning of August. We intend to make the journey over 2 days, so we are looking for somewhere roughly half way to stopover. We are not 100% sure of the best route to take - should we avoid Paris periphery completely?
I had in mind a small town for the stopover night, obviously not too far off of the main road, where we can have an evening meal and let the children burn off some energy. In short, have a pleasant evening after what is possibly going to be a bit of a hellish day!
I have also heard from friends that finding family accommodation for 5 will be difficult.
Any ideas where we should start???
