Melissa Havers, 37, and husband, Karl, 41, from London enjoyed an unusual break at Keycamp’s Club Farret with their two children, Bella, 5, and Toby, 2.
“After an easy 20-minute drive from Béziers airport, we arrived at the campsite ready to be taken to one of the brand new Miffy-themed mobile homes. This three-bedroom accommodation was ideal for us as it also had a cute fenced garden, complete with Miffy play house, hammock and toys. The fence proved essential as well, as we could relax without worrying that Toby was escaping.
We spent the rest of the week exploring the site and the local area. The campsite has everything you need to keep children entertained, with a heated swimming pool, paddling pool and kids’ clubs, where the children designed and painted their own T-shirts. There’s also a well-stocked supermarket for all the essentials, a restaurant and bars.
Next it was time to hit the sand. The campsite is right on the sandy beach of Vias Plage and the children spent hours digging and collecting shells. We all paddled together in the shallows, before heading back for dinner at the on-site restaurant. One of the surprises of the holiday was the fantastic LifeCycle learn-to-ride-a-bike course, which allowed Bella and Toby to try balance bikes with an instructor. After three days Bella was riding a normal bike without stabilisers, which was a great result and she couldn’t wait to get home and tell all her school friends. The resort was the perfect place to practise, with plenty of routes and traffic-free roads.
At the campsite was amazing, and Keycamp provided everything, including a Miffy change table, baby bath, pushchair, cot, baby toys and even a Miffy thermometer. Elsewhere, the theme continued with Miffy nightlights, cushions (which the children insisted on taking to bed), cups, beakers, bowls and cutlery. It was perfect and we didn’t need to worry about anything.”
