Planning summer holidays has never been easier with the tourist office. Let yourself be guided by our proposals for nature activities, to do between land and sea! Are you still hesitating? Try out our friendly, homemade decision diagram!
That's it, summer vacation is coming. Family as well as colleagues, everyone is busy organizing their next stay as well as possible. Watching the internet, booking accommodation, researching activities, ordering new swimsuits: in short, nothing is left to chance.
But now, everyone is not as organized as Monique from the accounting department: the mother of 4 children, whose suitcases have already been ready for 1 month. Because yes, there are people on earth who, like me and maybe like you, have no idea what to do or where to go to spend their holidays. If this is your case, the following will certainly help you!
How to choose your next vacation?
Heads, I go to the sea. Heads, I go to the mountains.
Tossing a coin is simple, fast and effective. But sometimes you need a little more detail to make a decision.
To help you in your selection, we have prepared a "Sea or Mountain" diagram. All you have to do is follow the arrows by simply responding with Yes or non to the questions asked !
Frankly, we may have been a bit chauvinistic at times. But keep in mind that there are no good or bad destinations, just a place that meets your needs for a pleasant vacation.
The little tip:
You will find a little further down, links that will take you directly to the activities mentioned, but also to other sources of inspiration.
