Looked it up and the drive times, plus boat times would add up to over a day way plus roughly the same cost as a flight and car rental. We are only planning another week.

Anyone stayed in La Croix Du Vieux Pont?

Is that Frejus? Or Les Messanges?

It is the one about an hour away from Charles de Gaulle airport, at Berny Riviere. Eurocamp are offering up to 40% discount if you take a second holiday in the same calendar year which is tempting us, though it has to be 'off season' so after September 3rd, but we don't mind that. We aren't chasing the sun, it's actually better milder with the child.
Autumn in France is lovely
Last of the choc-ices there now

Folks, looking to head away at the start of July with the boss and 2 kids. Thinking of mainland Spain or one of the islands. Any recommendations for all-inclusive hotels?
try magic natura.  Its just outside benidorm.  We didnt leave the compound once and spent the total of 30 euro while there.

Thanks HiMucker. If you don't mind me asking why room type would you recommend? Plenty of options there.
We just got a basic cabin with two bedrooms. Two wanes in one room and the baby in the cot.  I wouldnt bother with any of the rooms with sea view or pool view.  They didnt seem any better.  There is golf buggies beating about every 5 mins so you dont need to worry about walking if your knackered.  You can bring bottles of wine up to the cabin at the end of the night also.  Unlimited access to zoo and water park.  Its cheaper with jet2 than booking seaprately and you dont need to worry about your backage.

Thanks again. We were looking at the other rooms but that is great advice. The wife will be happy about the wine! Will get looking into it more. Cheer!
Well HiMucker, we are just back from there. The Kids had a ball and the boss was very happy. Thanks for the advice. We picked a good week as towards the end it started to get busier. Thanks again.

Anyone have any info on Kenmare or Killorglin? Thinking of booking one or the other for August/early Sept. Would either have sufficient apartments/houses to rent?

Looking for a house for the first week of august in Donegal

Somewhere close enough to the beach and bar/restaurant but not overly important
Any help much appreciated!

Air bnb might be your best bet at this stage!

Looking to go to Italy for a week at the end of May. Amalfi Coast or Tuscany or something. Any ideas? I think July and August would be too hot.

You're not wrong there. Not long back from Rome. Heat stifling. End May should be fine. You might want to consider Liguria, some lovely places there. 
Careful now
