Another vote for Annecy - great campsites on the water.

Good choice - Once you've done Annecy then take a look at a summer rib charter in Croatia - we took three family's, two ribs and toured several islands for six days then had a further four days in Trogir at a hotel with a pool. If you ever want the itinerary we followed then message me, my kids spend quite bit of time on ribs and still have this one trip as the most memorable (although last weeks Alderney trip was very popular with them). A large 7.5m rib worked out affordable split between two family's. Accommodation is as cheap or expensive as you want it to be.

Hi,

just come back from Lake garda , we took our new honwave T35 with 20 mariner and it was fantastic, really hot , sometimes a bit choppy in the middle but would recommend it to anyone, though did have to use our scooter to tow it down to the lcampsite slipway as it was quite a steep hill which raised a few eyebrows lol

I have a similar outfit Andy and am really looking forward to the experience.
We had a great time on the Carrick Roads in Cornwall however, we suffered a lot of chop due to adverse weather conditions.
I have previously done Biscarosse with a Jetski and that was fun however, most of the camp sites in that area are too commercial for my liking and too noisy by night.
