If you have been to a family attraction in Andalucia and had a fabulous time, don’t keep it to yourself, please post a comment telling us all about it
Whether you are travelling to Spain, Germany, Belgium, Italy etc you will probably need to stop over somewhere in France. If you are travelling with young children you may even need to stop off twice just to break up the journey more as young children can get very irritable if they are in the car a long time. The great thing about travelling in France is that along the motorways there are numerous service stations and picnic areas where you can pull over and stretch your legs and although you have to pay to use some motorways in France, they are definately worth using as they are extremely well maintained and a lot quieter than the ‘free’ roads.
If you and your family need to travel down the east side of France and want to stop off just once, then Dijon is a great location to stop. If you would like to break up the journey more and stop off twice then perhaps Troyes and Lyon would be more suitable.
If you are travelling down the west side of France and need to stop off once then Limoges is a great central place, if you want to stay over twice then Le Mans or Tours, Bordeaux or Toulouse may be good options for you.
Maybe you just want to travel straight down the middle of France, in which case Clermont Ferrand would be an excellent option.

What do you think of when you think of Disney? I think of children, families & fun! Disney is the epitome of children and families so why is it so difficult for bigger families of 5 or more to find hotels to accommodate them?
Nowadays families do not conform to the stereotypical 2 adults and 2 children. There are many families out there that consist of 5, 6, 7 and even more members. With divorce at its highest level throughout the world, there are also many blended families out there that have gone for years easily finding hotel rooms for 3 or 4 to suddenlybeing faced with the problem of needing a hotel room for 6 or more!
There are hotels in and around Disney World and Disneyland that can accommodate families of 5, 6 or more but in my opinion there are not enough and large families need to book well in advance to ensure a room/apartment/villa. Leaving it to the last minute will lead to disappointment. Unfortunately there are not as many options at Eurodisney so it is even more important to book early.
Will hotel chains eventually realise the need for bigger family accommodation or will big families always struggle to find rooms that are suitable for them? Who knows? Until they do however, Room For 5 will continually work hard to find these elusive rooms and you can find your hotel for 5, 6 or more in and around Disney World, Disneyland or Eurodisney quickly and easily by visiting http://www.roomfor5.co.uk
Are you travelling to Spain, Italy, Portugal or the South Of France? Do you need a hotel that can accommodate your big family of 5 or more for the night on the way down? Look no further!

Here are some great tips for families driving through France:
Drivers – The minimum age for driving a car in France is 18; thus no-one under the age of 18 can drive a car in France, even if he or she holds a valid licence in another country.
Using mobile phones – From Jan. 3rd 2012, drivers caught using a mobile phone while on the road in France are liable to an on-the-spot fine of 130 Euros
Using speed camera detectors - There are now well over two thousand stationary speed cameras on France’s roads and motorways. Speed camera detectors have been banned in France since 28th November 2011. Drivers using radar detectors (speed camera detectors) are liable for a fine of 1500 Euros and 6 points off their license.
Seatbelts – Everyone must wear seatbelts. Children under 10 years old are not allowed to travel in the front seat of a car, unless there are no back seats. Children under 10 years of age must travel in the back, using an appropriate child seat or booster seat. Babies are allowed to travel in the front passenger seat, but only when placed in an approved rear-facing baby seat and the airbag is turned off.
Fuel – don’t fill up on the autoroute! Wait until a major intersection near a town or city, and come off the autoroute. You will almost certainly find a hypermarket / superstore within a kilometer or so of the exit, offering cut price fuel. The saving can be us much as 15 centimes per litre.
Motorway Tolls – The cost of motorway travel for a car without caravan or trailer is about 1 €uro for 10 miles.
Speed Limits- The normal speed limit on French motorways is 130 km/hr (just over 80 mph). – or 110 km/hr in rain. The normal speed limit on dual carriageways (divided highways) is 110 km/hr. The normal speed limit on main roads is 90 km/hr (outside built-up areas). The normal speed limit in built-up areas is 50 km/hr – unless otherwise indicated.
