Ideas for short Easter break?

We like to go camp sites, freedom for the kids, water slides, crappy cheap snack food.. But mostly they are closed until end of April.

We like Stressa on Lac Maggiore. But wondering how the road over the pass will be for my summer tyres


Throw some ideas out there.. Probably just a long weekend, Friday - Tuesday so reachable by car.

If you can afford go to center parks trois forets John. 4 hours away, pool indoor with millions to do as well as outdoor rapid run. Sports hall if rainy and itís in a forest so cycling trekking tree adventure etc. like camping but with a powerup.

ThankYou Mikers , I quite like the look of that .. However I have this mental block that says if I'm gonna pay nearly 2k for a few days I'd probably head to Tenerife or Portugal or something.

I'll ask the boss..

The Schwarzwald has open campsites, at least one water park with slides etc.

A day trip away by car, open from April 12:

Camping, waterslides, beach and food.... and only a nice 1/2 hour boat ride away from Piazza San Marco, Venice.

Decided on Alsace area .. Near Boofzheim.

So we go to EuropaPark easily and explore the area a little.
