Family trip to Aquitaine Region with children. Ideas on where to go with your child

Chateau Pape Clement Bordeaux At first sight, it may seem that Aquitaine would be interesting only for the kids, who like the sea and all about it. Of course, there are a lot of slides, trampolines, “bananas” and “tablets”, like in any other resort area. Though most of the French children parks are located near Paris, there are some places in Aquitaine, that children of any age will enjoy. If your child likes aqua parks, take him to Bassin d’Arcachon, in the suburbs of Bordeaux. It has a special area for little kids and quite steep slides for teenagers and their parents. If you forget to take a towel or a swimsuit with you, don’t worry, you can buy it at the aqua park.
In Aquitaine, you can acquire the products of the world-known brands. Here, as in the rest of Europe, season sales are held twice a year. Summer sales are from July until August, and winter … Open
Bassin d’Arcachon has two things in common with the most of the French amusement parks: an opportunity to find good sandwiches on the territory of the park and crowds of people from the end of July till the beginning of August. Well, it’s the high season, what can you do. However, most of the big entertainment centers have their own websites, where you can check the estimated number of visitors, depending on the month and date of the visit. You should better visit the Kidpark, which is also located close enough to Bordeaux, during the weekdays. It will eliminate the risk of standing in a line for every ride. You should definitely visit this place, if your kid is younger, then 12 years old. The park is targeted on children, so teenagers might get bored.
Children of all age and their parents will enjoy Walibi – a theme park, devoted to popular French comic books’ heroes. Though, even if neither you, nor your kid, know these characters, you have nothing to worry about. A couple of dozens of wonderful rides, a café with reasonable prices and an opportunity to admire an 18th-century castle will make sure you have a great weekend. Do you want to just wander around the quiet alleys, sit on the grass or have a picnic? Then go to the Parc Bordelais or to Jardin Public in Bordeaux. In the first one you can feed the duck and walk down the 17th-century alleys, and the second one offers puppet theatre shows in summer. Copyright

Does your kid like the animals? Then Zoo de Pessac is the place to go. It’s worth coming to Bordeaux, even if you stay far from the city. The zoo has three sectors. The first one has common enclosures. This is where gracious wild cats, and meerkats, and parrots, and many others live. The second part of the Zoo de Pessac is a space with the rides, cafes and a play ground. This is where the show take place and the visitors can pet and feed the animals. There is also an Archeological Museum for children, where every little adventurer can dig dinosaur bones on his own.
Bordeaux History fans will appreciate the caves in the Vaser Valley. Although, Dordogne Perigord is worth visiting not only for its prehistoric monuments. There are a lot of medieval castles, fascinating not only for grownups, but for children as well. Because what kid has never heard of the places, where brave knights and princesses lived? And if your child is interested not in the tournaments and balls, but in flights, take him to Trampoline Park - Let's Jump Bordeaux, located, as many others, in Bordeaux. Even the youngest visitors can have fun, jumping on a trampoline. Royal kids Bordeaux is a place specially for kids. Here the parents can have a rest and a quick bite in a leisure zone, watching their children play.
