Lots of exercise, can be rock climbing or biking.
Kid friendly, ie swimming pools, perhaps easy cycling

Transport can be either flying and hire a car or drive our camper van there with the bikes and all the other junk on the back.
BUT: We've driven to the south of France numerous times and it's just too much like hard work to be fun any more. The thought of the 2 day journey back hangs over the holiday like a cloud.
