Are you planning a holiday with children in the Provence? Be sure to read on. We made a top 10 of activities with children in the Provence. The activities are all close to Le Rêve Provençal. The handy map at the bottom of this blog shows where the activities are located.

Number 1 – Jeu de Piste in Mirabel-aux-Baronnies

Number 1 is very close to Le Rêve Provençal, because it’s a treasure hunt in Mirabel-aux-Baronnies. There are 3 levels of difficulty depending on age (4-6 years old, 7-9 years old and 9-12 years old) on the same 1.2 kilometer course.

The necessary information can be obtained from the Tourist Office. By the way, you can also do such a treasure hunt in Nyons.

Number 2 – Accrobranche Les Barons Perchés

In the forest above Nyons, you will find the Barons Perchés treetop adventure course. There are no less than 7 courses with varying degrees of difficulty and a long zip line of no less than 250 meters. Children from 6 years old can do the green, blue and red course. Children over 1.35m can also do the brown course and children over 1.45m can do all courses and the zip line.

Number 3 – Canyoning

With children as of 8 years old, it is possible to go canyoning with a guide. A descent through water in a canyon. Wonderfully refreshing on a hot day! And spectacular, because you have to jump, slide and abseil!

Number 4 – Mont Serein – in winter and in summer!

Mont Serein is the ski area of the Mont Ventoux. But you can’t go there just in winter. There is also a lot to do in the summer. All terrain karting, electric scooters, treetop adventure course, air park, tubbing, pony and horse rides and fun trampoline. Everything is possible.

The video below gives you a good impression of what you can do during the summer.

Number 5 – Observing vultures

In the mountains above Rémuzat, there is a large colony of vultures with no less than 4 different species of vultures: griffon vulture, monk vulture, Egyptian vulture and bearded vulture. You can admire these huge birds from the Rocher du Caïre above the village of Rémuzat. From the parking area, it takes fifteen minutes to walk to the viewpoint. In the village itself there is a visitor center with detailed information about the vulture colony. And from the Rocher du Caïre, you have a magnificent view.

More information in our blog The vultures of Rémuzat.

Number 6 – Water parks

Besides swimming in the private swimming pool of Rêve Provençal, you can also swim in the water parks of Sagittaire (3.6 km from Rêve Provençal) and Nyonsoléïado in Nyons (8 km from Rêve).

Number 7 – Donkey walks

Departing from Cornillac, a village of only 70 inhabitants, you can walk with donkeys. A day trip or a multi-day hike, with or without meals. Everything is possible at the Cols des Ânes. The circuits are between 8 and 13 kilometers per day.

Number 8 – Mini golf du Théos

Always fun to do on vacation: mini golf. The Théos mini golf with its 18 courses in Vaison-la-Romaine also has a food truck with tasty snacks. The mini golf is also open out of season (by appointment). There is also a pool table, table football and ping pong table.

Number9 – Visiting castles

Visiting a castle is always a pleasant outing with the children. Fortunately, there are plenty of castles to visit near Le Rêve Provençal. More information in our Castles in the Provence blog, which also covers specific activities for children which many castles offer. The blog also has a map on which the castles are marked. A visit to the Palace of the Popes and Avignon is fun to do with children partly because of the interactive tablet that accompanies the visit and includes a scavenger hunt.

Number 10 – Small-scale outdoor playground

La Forêt Enchantée is a small-scale outdoor playground in a forest populated by fairytale characters. Giant labyrinth, mini treetop climbing courses, various games, an educational trail and a bar. Warning: bring your own water to drink, the playground is not connected to a drinking water network.
