You want sangria on a beach with clean sands and endless sea. You want pounding nightclubs and banging tones. But the holidays you loved when you were in your twenties seem like a distant memory. Now that your littles are here, your priorities in the sun will have to change.
With a few kids tagging along, you’re going to need to find locations with plenty for them to do. That’s why, in association with Gatwick meet and greet service, we’ve hunted down some of the best locations to take your kids.
Your little ones won’t get tetchy on these holidays – they’ll be enjoying themselves too much to ever feel restless.
Imagine hanging out in a luxury apartment while the sun shines on your face, the kids jumping in and out of a temperature-perfect swimming pool and a vista view of the Italian countryside before you.
That’s exactly what you’ll find at the Princely Houses Farm in Sicily. With a view of Mount Etna, this luxury venue boasts a main house and five cottages, each of which sleeps between five to eight people. Each cottage is surrounded by sumptuous citrus, olive and palm trees, as well as private play areas so your children can frolic safely.
A 15-minute drive will take you straight to the beach, and another 15 will take you directly to a woodland adventure playground. Your kids will be so excited that they’ll forget their iPads even exist.
Many kids cope poorly in extreme heat, so why not take them somewhere mild like Brittany, France? The most north-westerly region is surrounded by beaches that are perfect for kids. They’ll be able to make sandcastles to their heart’s content while you soak up some rays.
Once you’ve grown tired of the beach, head to Saint Michael’s Mount, which features a gargantuan abbey that will leave your kids in awe. If you want your little ones to become history buffs later in life, this is the perfect location.
Corfu is the kind of place that could stick in your child’s mind forever – and for all the right reasons.
With sun, sand and plenty to do, this island off the Greek coast could become the defining memory of your son or daughter’s childhood. Villas and cottages are available to rent for a princely sum, surrounding you with a wealth of scenery and scenic walks through calming locations.
If you want your child’s imagination to run wild, take them to Corfu and enjoy this potent mixture of tourist wonder and native beauty.
