Imagine a complete break this half-term - messing around in boats in the mellow climate of south-west France before sleeping soundly under canvas.
On a four-star campsite on the shores of the idyllic Lac Biscarrosse near Arcachon in the Landes region, you'll be treated to a fantastic week-long watersports family holiday worth more than pound;2,000 during the Whitsun half-term (May 27 to June 4), courtesy of Rockley Watersports, with ferry crossing for your car provided by Brittany Ferries.
At the La Reserve campsite your holiday will include seven nights'
accommodation for five people (two adults and up to three children) in a chalet tent, a five-day sailing or windsurfing course, a regatta day and free use of the boats and boards throughout the week. And, after the sailing day is over, you will be able to sip a glass or two of French wine and enjoy some of the local cuisine at the social events provided.
