School Holiday Dates 2019/20

image Tuesday, 15, October, 2019

To make sure you’ve planned the best getaway for you and your family, as well as considering the holiday dates your children get and the time you can take off work, it may be wise to think about scheduling a holiday within the French school holiday dates. There are several benefits including dedicated children/family-friendly events and activities, and special peak date deals. However, these dates are popular so resorts are likely to be much, much busier. 

French school holidays operate using a different system to the UK, different zones have their holidays at different times of the year, reducing demand for holidays.
