Contributor blog post by Ashley Tinker:

Family Friendly Activities on Vacation

It’s possible that your children might not enjoy the wonderful relaxation of sipping on rosé and people watching in a town square.

For animal lovers: La Barben Zoo (a walkable zoo with 9km of pathways), La Ferme aux Crocodiles (for kids who like reptiles), Seaquarium (all things fishy) or whale watching with Sea Adventure.

For artistic types: The new show at Carrieres des Lumieres (Picasso and the Spanish Masters), a visit to La Verriere de Biot glass factory outside of Nice, L’Atelier de Bob for pottery classes near St Remy de Provence.

For gourmands: The Haribo candy factory outside of Uzès or the Chocolaterie de Puyricard for factory tours and tastings (near Aix-en-Provence).

Other Ideas for Kids Travel in Provence

Phoebe shares how to stay on a budget on the Cote d’Azur in this post “Travel Tips for Free Family Fun in Nice France.” Ride along the Promenade des Anglais or visit the open air “water park” in Promenade du Paillon.

These Crafting Workshops in Goult at Jolie Vintage Atelier are a perfect activity to beat the weather (summer heat, Mistral winds or a rainy day). These sessions are hands-on workshops for creative children, and a great idea for birthday parties too.

Les Trésors de Cannes is a treasure hunt for kids (and adults) in Cannes, one of several ideas in this post by Rebecca at Access Riviera.

Ashley was born and raised in Montréal, Canada. She has always been drawn to the history, way of life and beauty of Europe. Her feelings for Europe were reconfirmed while studying art in Florence, Italy. Ashley says that stone buildings, colourful shutters and terra cotta tile rooftops fill her dreams and now her days.

Ashley moved to Provence in 2014 with her partner Robin (he also shares her Francophile passions). They are in search of the French joie de vivre, which they find at every turn in the local markets and natural beauty of Provence. This couple are indulging in local olives and wine as the Provencal sunshine changes craggy rocks into things of beauty.
