Topic - Summer Holiday Ideas Please: Kids + Adventure Needed

TheGeneralist - on 24 Feb 2013
Please give me some ideas for a decent 2 week summer holiday. Got some quite specific (and possibly mutually exclusive requirements):
Lots of exercise, can be rock climbing or biking.
Kid friendly, ie swimming pools, perhaps easy cycling
Reasonable weather.
Lots of exercise.
Not too expensive
Not too far away.
Lots of exercise.

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.
So we're looking for something nearer, but there doesn't appear to be anything that good. Done the massif Central, Ardeche, Briancon, Provence, Frankische Schweiz etc but they all appear to be around 800km plus from Calais.

To be honest it does look like we'd have to suck it up and do the big drive, in which case can anyone recommend good areas to get some good biking/climbing but that also have nice campsite and kid friendly infrastructure.
