Our first family trip. What kind of traveling would be nice with a toddler and a baby? Our very first holiday, with one baby, was with an airplane and we enjoyed it very much. This time, having two kids, we are eager to discover how a trip to the south of France would be. On our way to the Provence/Côte d’Azur, we found some nice spots. In this blog I will highlight our favourites on the way!
Aire de Lloraine Sandacourt (100km from Nancy to Dijon)
This restaurant we mainly like because it has everything for a stop to eat and change a toddler/baby. It has a small playground inside and a spacious changing room for toddlers, including a toddler toilet.
Moreover the restaurant is very clean which I find the most important. For meal orders they have a promo for kids €4,90 including water, dessert and a surprise. Besides that; make sure you order seperately with your partner, as the
ticket had a discount for the next visit of €3,-. You can use it directly on the order of your partner
Aire de Repos de Jugy, A6 to the South, between Chalon en Macon
This is the parking-lot for children! Up to the age of 12, they can enjoy themselves in a mushroom themed area. There is a large playground full of mushrooms and slides for children to climb on and play. Side note: It can get quite busy here and there is no restaurant.
Auberge de Moulin for tasty meals between Lyon & Valence
We got of the highway to find a place for a good French lunch. By chance we found Auberge du Moulin in St Sorlin en Valloire. It’s just a small detour and worth it. Very tasty meals, excellent service, a high chair and some green gras to run around for our toddler.
Chambre d’hôtes close to Valence
We spent our first night in a chambre d’hôtes on a farm in the Ardèche, close to Valence. We are immediately overwhelmed by the fantastic view and the relaxing spirit. The kids and you will have an amazing time with the animals. And you will love the hosts and their delicious homemade and regional dishes.
This is truly where holiday begins. The table d’hôte is definitely a recommendation. Costs only € 20,-.
How we enjoyed our holiday in the Provence/Côte d’Azur, will be blogged soon!
