Those looking for an action-packed holiday, should check out two of Keycamp's latest parcs Les Ranchisses at Largentière in the Ardéche and Camping Pyrénées at Luz St Sauveur near Lourdes, which both offer suitable holidays for couples and family holidays as well as a feast of sports, activities and breathtaking scenery - the perfect antidote to the 'fly and flop' holiday.

Whilst there are plenty of options for relaxation with the parcs both offering superb pool complexes and a well-being centre with hammam, sauna and jacuzzi, it's a real challenge not to be hit by the fitness bug upon arrival.

A Breath of Fresh Air in the Pyrénées

Set in the midst of the Pyrénées, this stunning parc is the perfect base from which to explore the mountains. Whether it's hiking, biking or canoeing that gets your vote, there's enough trails and passes for you to more than soak up the scenery, while rock climbing, white water rafting and abseiling are all within easy reach. On top of that, the parc offers you the chance to try your hand at canyoning (white water rafting without the raft to the unitiated!).

When something a little more sedate is called for, the pretty mountain village of Luz St Sauveur is close at hand, while Lourdes, the most famous of Christian pilgrimage destinations, is within easy day trip distance.

Seven nights starting from 23 May for a family of two adults and up to four children staying in a lodge will cost £636, which includes return Dover-Calais ferry crossings. The same break departing on 9 August will cost £1,190 per family. Alternative ferry crossings, overnight stops, rail travel or fly drive packages are available at a supplement.

Action and Adventure in the Ardèche

If you want a parc that is guaranteed to keep the whole family happy, then Les Ranchisses is it. On-parc, in addition to a well being centre and a fabulous swimming pool complex, there's an almost endless list of activities including fishing, mini golf, climbing, canyoning, potholing, tennis, volleyball and a full children's animation programme. Meanwhile, there's plenty to explore locally by foot, bike or canoe.

Seven nights starting from 25 August for a family of two adults and up to four children staying in a Villanova mobile home with decking and air-conditioning will cost £757, including return Dover-Calais ferry crossings. Alternative ferry crossings, rail travel or fly-drive packages are available at a supplement.
