Road Trip

Hi all,

Very new to this site.

Me and my family/Friends are taking a road trip to France in June/July this year (2014) there are 4 young adults (25) and a 4 year old child.

We are camping and have already booked the sites, we are staying in :-

Paris for 4 nights

Lyon for 4 nights with a day trip to Barcelona (flights booked)

La Rochelle for 3 nights

and finally Le mans for 3 nights.

Can anybody recommend anywhere to visit whilst on route to any of these places?

Any Driving tips in France, i have used www.viamichelin.com to plan journeys and work out tolls etc but i have never driven abroad before.

We are aware of the regulations with Hi-Viz jackets etc.

Is there any theme/water parks on any of these routes or nice sightseeing destinations.

Any response will be gratefully appreciated,

Regards Martyn

If you want a trip out from La Rochelle your little one might enjoy Monkey Park. It is south of Poitiers about 1 3/4 hours drive from La Rochelle (depending on wherever you are camping near La Rochelle).

So, if Futuroscope doesn't fit the bill, Monkey Park might. By the way, you should check out the rides if your little one is only 4 years old. Some rides are only available to young children of a certain height.
