So a little summary of all the possible types of family accommodation with the advantages and disadvantages that I find there. I’ll also give you some tips to better help you book, and the sites I use regularly? These are my strictly personal opinions and I would therefore be delighted to have your point of view and other ideas for a site.Family hotel – family accommodation .?
The best! Mom doesn’t cook, we put our feet under the table. With little ones, choose half-board , breakfast in the morning, buffet for a meal, and to be quiet in the evening! No need to look for a restaurant while the children are tired.
the – : the budget (it’s a mother who has a baby who has just passed the 2 years of her mini Voyageur and entered the category “my baby pays for his bed!” Attention, to reduce this budget, we make a cross on our intimacy during the holidays by taking quadruple rooms because otherwise we will not go on vacation anymore.
In a guest room or gite – family accommodation .?
Tested a few times, during our trip to Canada in New Carlisle at Manoir Hamilton or in Berry .

The sites I recommend for renting an apartment
Airbnb for the more famous site but you have to be careful with the administration and cleaning fees which can quickly increase the price of the night
Abritel – Home Away : used during our trip to Puglia . You can put a filter to bring your pet
Booking: more and more apartments are available on Booking! We had some nice surprises, especially in Colombia!Our apartment rental in Puglia
Home exchange – family accommodation .?
Never tested either! I will be up for it, but Mr. Dad has many arguments for not taking the plunge. But given the accommodation budget now at 4, we will have to decide if we want to leave every year.
Several options to exchange: either you really exchange your house with the hosts, you must have the same holiday; or you have a point counter and you exchange with any other host without it being reciprocal.
Advantage of home exchange : unbeatable cost, it is just an exchange after paying registration on a site
Disadvantage of home exchange : preparing the house to leave it to strangers
