We went on our first Acorn holiday this summer and it was amazing. The coach was top notch and the drivers were great. We stayed in France For 5 days, the tents were as described and more than adequate. The food was ok most of the time, although some of the evening meals weren't great (apparently the main chef was off sick). The staff on site were great, if something was wrong they sorted it straight away, they were fab with the kids and made sure everyone enjoyed all the activities, which included: two day river descent on the Ardeche; caving; river walks; high ropes; kayaking. The river descent was incredible fun, my kids (aged 11 and 9) loved every minute of it, especially the rock jumps!
We then spent four days in Italy. This site seemed cleaner, with much better toilet and shower facilities! The food was fab aswell. The activities were great here, white water rafting, abseilling, gorge walking, rock climbing. The staff were great and organised various evening activities for the kids and the adults enjoyed a social drink and lots of laughs. The volleyball court in the centre of the site was very popular, there were numerous evening tournaments which caused great laughs and lots of competition!!
In summary, if you are looking for a non-stop active holiday with like minded people then give this a go, just be prepared to have your kids turn into adrenalin junkies!!!
