Last Updated : 23 October 2020

Now is a great time to book a holiday for later in the year. There is nothing quite like the thrill of an upcoming getaway and Pierre et Vacances offer some brilliant savings throughout the whole year to ensure you always get a great deal. Apartments and villas are all very well and good but when booking for the whole family a holiday village is often a popular and worthwhile idea.

These sprawling complexes offer atmosphere and entertainment opportunities that can’t be topped easily. Children will revel in the chance to get stuck in with the kid's clubs where they will make fast friends and take part in team sports and activities, while adults will enjoy the peace and quiet having busy kids will bring.

We’ve been having a look at some of the best holiday villages Pierre et Vacances has to offer all over Europe and beyond. There are so many tempting places to visit it was really hard to whittle them down to the ones featured in the blog so good luck decided which one to visit. We hope our picks help you narrow things down a bit.

Residence Les Restanques du Golfe de St-Tropez

Pool at Residence Les Restanques du Golfe de St-Tropez

As the name would suggest our first-holiday village is in France, St-Tropez to be exact. Expect some stunning visuals if you visit this site. The park itself is 25 hectares large and beautifully landscaped plus you can also enjoy a full panoramic view of the Mediterranean.

Another selling point for this park is the huge water park located conveniently within the grounds. This waterpark is an impressive 1,600 square meters and includes two pools, a choice of water sport activities, wave pool and plenty of slides. If you’re still not done with the water then you’ll find the beach is just a hop, skip and jump away plus it’s lovely and sandy.

Other facilities include play areas, horse riding, tennis courts, 18 hole golf course, cycling, football, basketball and beach volleyball. You also have a restaurant on-site and access to the wellness-spa.
When booking you can choose between standard or superior accommodation, both offer dwellings of fantastic quality but with superior you tend to get more prime locations within the park as well as readymade bed and a few other extras. Each has either a sea view or waterpark view and you get to choose. They are all artfully decorated in a cool Mediterranean style.
