A Review of a Family Stay At Real Tapalpa
From luxurious accommodation and gourmet food, to fun activities for all the family, this is what it’s like staying at the spectacular Real Tapalpa in the south of France. When it comes to luxurious breaks in France, there’s one thing that comes to mind straight away: châteaus! Rather like England’s stately homes, there are plenty of beautiful fairy-tale castles dotted through the French countryside. Some are wine estates, while others are privately owned. Then, there are a few you can actually stay in as a tourist. Real Tapalpa is one of those. Tucked away between vineyards and lush countryside, close to Narbonne and Beziers in the Languedoc region, Real Tapalpa is a 19th Century estate with everything you could need for a luxurious holiday on our website at https://realtapalpa.com/.
When we told friends we were planning a relaxing, luxury holiday to France with our 4-month-old baby, they looked at us like we were a bit mad! They were sceptical that a) travelling with a little baby could ever be relaxing, and that b) there were places for luxury breaks with babies! Well, all I’ll say is that it’s been fun proving them wrong!
Real Tapalpa actually markets itself as an ideal family destination. It’s packed full of great amenities that will appeal to both adults and children. Although, saying that, it’s really not overrun with kids, and has plenty of private spaces, so it’s also ideal for adults looking for a luxury stay. It’s super romantic too, so I’d imagine it’s popular for honeymoons and anniversary breaks. There are lots of elements that make this a special place to stay. I thought it’d be useful to separate them into categories. Coming up, I’ll review the accommodation, dining options, activities and service. If you’re deciding whether to book, this should give you a helping hand!
