10 Reasons to try an Hotel Plein Air

We often spend months planning our perfect Summer holiday.

Wanderlust takes over as we scroll through holiday websites, follow Instagram feeds that illustrate holiday perfection, listen avidly to anyone who has just been away.

On paper it seems all too easy, choose a destination, pick accommodation, make travel arrangements, and check your dates; but throw in the complication of what other people want and it all gets a bit more complicated!

But what if there was a holiday that could cater for most of what you and your family look for?

The hotel plein air is Europe’s answer to combining the freedom of camping, with the facilities of hotels, and the self-catering accommodation of holiday homes.

 

 

Here are our Top 10 Resasons you should try a hotel plein air this summer:

 

1.Accommodation

Accommoation at hotel plein airs often combine the best of the camping world with outdoor space, and the luxury of self-catering accommodation.

Large sunny emplacements provide a safe place for little ones to play, and provide a perfect place for al fresco dining.

Modern and bright accommodation comes equiped with all the essentials, plus some luxury extras to provide the perfect backdrop for your family holiday.

2. Outdoor Space

One of the reasons we chose Chateau la Foret, was because of its outdoor space.

Come play, cycle, or roam freely in the acres of parkland that surround the Chateau in complete safety.

Enjoy lake and woodland walks catching glimpses of the Chateau through the treetops.

 

3. Dining

Unlike self-catering hotel holidays where meal times are prescribed, and sometimes food menus limited, the hotel plein airs self-catering approach allows you to eat what you want, when you want; and on the occassions you don’t want, they provide restaurants, bars, take-aways, and at the Chateau, we even have a lakeside cafe and creperie.
