Watersports training & holidays

french family holidays If finding the ideal holiday to satisfy all your family members from the active child to the parent who just wants to chill out poolside and finally finish a book without any interruptions, is proving difficult, then look no further than Rockley and our Get Active holidays. Our holidays combine a fantastic selection of activities for both children and adults, allowing the whole family to enjoy the excitement of doing new activities together - a great bonding experience and great fun, whilst also leaving some much deserved downtime to either relax or explore the area further.

Each family can choose from our inclusive activities to create their own holiday programme. There is no pressure to participate. You choose how much or how little you want to do. Parents may want to spend the day relaxing, reading a good book or visiting local attractions while we look after the children - it’s up to you. And with activities designed for all abilities, you don’t need to be an expert or super fit to enjoy them.

There is something wonderful about the southwest of France with its spectacular coastline, rolling countryside, forests, magnificent lakes and majestic mountains. In a small part of the Aquitaine region on the outskirts of the small town of Azur on the shores of Lac Soustons lies the unique French campsite of AzuRivage - the location of our French Family holidays. www.rockley.org

Watersports training & holidays

wHAT'S NOT TO LOVE ABOUT CAMPING! If you’ve never been camping before you’ll be amazed how easy and enjoyable it is! AzuRivage has all the facilities to make your stay relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable. Of course, if your ideal holiday includes a good book and a glass of something chilled then camping does that best too.

ROCKLEY WATERSPORTS CHALET TENTS Our Get Active Holiday accommodation is provided in our own chalet-style tents. The Rockley chalet tents have three separate sleeping compartments for up to six people. Each tent has proper sprung beds, full electric lighting and power points. A table, parasol and chairs are provided for you to relax and enjoy the fresh air under the pine trees. On arrival, you’ll find a ‘welcome pack’ including a bottle of wine and some beer (chilled of course) along with some essentials including fruit juice, bottled water, milk, tea and coffee.

AL FRESCO DINING Our holidays are all about you enjoying your time on the water with your family and new-found friends, which is why we take care of everything else including all your meals! Our chef and catering team use fresh locally sourced ingredients for you to enjoy after your activities. Our buffet style lunches cater for all tastes, while our two course evening meal, which includes a bottle of beer, glass of wine or soft drink, gives you the chance to relax and share tales of the day with friends and family. Please note that no evening meal is provided on Friday to give you the opportunity to sample many of the fabulous local restaurants in the area.

FUN OFF THE WATER! During your time off the water we aim to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible, which is why our varied programme of social events is guaranteed to keep everyone entertained. Our arrival evening ’Welcome Drinks‘ gives you a chance to meet your instructors and fellow Get Active families and is a good opportunity to ask any questions you may have. After a day or two you can enjoy our ’Boules‘ evening where you can choose to pit your family team against all comers or split up and take on the kids! Test your knowledge at our pub quiz night and enjoy our end of week prize giving ceremony. Parents and children also get an evening off from each other with our activity evenings for the youngsters. While we take good care of them, you can relax with a glass of wine! Please refer to the website for further details. Please note that the campsite has a programme of evening entertainments that includes a disco and various entertainers. All entertainment finishes by 11pm.

GET ON THE WATER! Our fabulous range of water and land based activities means that the whole family get to have a go no matter what level you are! Our weekly programme of events means that you really can have the holiday you want! Throughout the morning and afternoon we offer 2 hourly sessions of activities for you to pick and choose from so if you are super keen to get on the water or on your bike, you can do so, but if you also want a bit of down time and chill out by the pool with a good book, then you can do that too! Sarah Robinson and her family spent two weeks at AzuRivage. “We had a fantastic holiday. The children loved their time on the water taking part in the various activities. We did loads of things together as a family but also had the opportunity to meet lots of new people. When we managed to tear the children away from their friends, we also enjoyed some time off-site - Hossegor was a personal favourite and I very much recommend the restaurant Le Napoli which is a short walk from the beach. The kids have said it was their best holiday ever, and I have to agree that it was certainly up there as one of the best!”

YOUR HOLIDAY CHECKLIST With our French Family holiday we’ve tried to include as much as possible in the price of your holiday, so the important things like meals, bed linen and towels are all included. Here are just a few essentials; Rash vest – short or long sleeved or long sleeved tshirt Long board shorts Sun hat or cap Lightweight waterproof Sun cream – high factor (25 SPF +) If the weather is cooler than normal you may also require some lightweight long trousers and a fleece for on the water Water bottle
