PGL Family Active heads to France for Easter

Families looking for an Easter holiday with a difference will find it at PGL’s own chateau just 20 miles outside Paris – with free places and discounts for children up to 18 years.

This five-day/four-night holiday is a first for PGL’s family active programme, which usually uses the hotel-standard adventure centre solely for summer activity weeks.

Aimed at families with children as young as six the break includes:

  • One day of activities at the Chateau de Grande Romaine where abseiling, archery, climbing, ropes courses, a trapeze and zip wire are set in 70 acres of grounds.
  • One day in Paris including a short cruise on the Seine.
  • One day at Disneyland Paris including tickets to both theme parks.
  • Four night’s accommodation in en-suite rooms.
  • All meals from dinner on Day 1 to breakfast on Day 5.
  • Instruction and equipment for activities.
  • Transfers into Paris for sightseeing day.
  • Family-friendly evening entertainment.

The cost is from £279 per adult and £229 for the first child aged six to 18 years inclusive.  A second child six-18 goes free, saving £229.  (Tinies aged two to five are also welcome, though unable to take part in activities: the first child in this age group pays £139, and a second child two-five years is free.)

Alternatively, smaller families with just one child can take advantage of a 30% discount on the original price of £229, now only £160.

These prices are based on sharing an ensuite family room: separate rooms for adults and children are also available at a supplement.   Travel to France is not included.

To take advantage of either of these offers, bookings must be made by 4 March, quoting EAST1 when calling.
