Family holidays in Europe are perfect for families big and small, young and old, adventurous and…less so. The beauty of Europe is that it’s so large and varied, there really is something for everyone. And because our range of villas and other holiday lettings is so wide and varied too, you’re sure to find the apartment or holiday home that’s best for you. Maybe you’re a family of culture vultures, in which case a city break could be on the cards, while if you find excitement up the side of a mountain, our holiday lettings in the Alps are the way to go.
Source inspiration for child friendly holidays in Europe
You’ll find all sorts of inspiration for family holidays all across Europe. The continent contains a multitude of marvellous holiday opportunities, while our range of holiday lettings means you’ll feel right at home whatever your destination is. From the sandy beaches of the Mediterranean, and the cultured cities of Italy, France and Spain, to the active adventures found in Switzerland, Scandinavia and Slovenia there really is something for everyone. If you’re travelling with young children, then you might want to take in the likes of Disneyland Paris. Or perhaps a spot of sailing off the coast of South of France is what gets your kids excited – either way, Europe and its many destinations won’t disappoint.
Set your sights on summer with a day at the beach
It’s never too early to start planning the summer family holiday. Counting down the days until you set sail (or take flight or drive off) on your big summer family holiday is fun, of course, but the devil is in the detail and what summer holidays really take is a lot of planning. Luckily our range of villas and holiday lettings means it couldn’t be easier to find the perfect spot to set up shop for the summer. If your clan is all about taking it easy and getting in as much sunbathing as possible over the summer months, then our holiday villas are the way to go. Many of our villas are within walking distance of the beach, whether you’re on the Algarve, in Mallorca, Puglia or on some Grecian isle, while many more come with their own outdoor swimming pool to cool off in.
Surround yourself with snow on a winter wonderland holiday
If you’re tired of waiting for a white Christmas in the UK, then why not whisk the family away on a winter holiday where you’re sure to find yourself surrounded by snow. And it’s not like you have to travel over Christmas either – the February half term is perfect for fitting in a little skiing or other wintry adventures. If you’re after some real magic, then a trip to Lapland could be on the cards. Cosy up in one of our log cabins after a day of learning to snowshoe or meeting Santa’s reindeer – you’ll be glad you made the trip. Alternatively, what about a chalet in Austria or Switzerland, or perhaps the French Alps is calling your name. Further afield you’ll find plenty to blow you away in Iceland, where myth and legend come together under the magic of the northern lights.
See all the sights on a family friendly European city break
City breaks aren’t just the ideal short break for couples and groups of friends. Families can find all sorts of fun on a European city break, whether you’re wandering the boulevards of Paris, tucking into a pizza in Naples, tasting all the tapas in Madrid or flying down the hills of Lisbon on an ancient tram. Head further north and families will find plenty to keep them busy in Amsterdam, Antwerp, Copenhagen and Stockholm, while the cities on the Baltic Sea, such as Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius offer a different view of Europe, as well as great value for money. In Paris you could treat the kids to a daytrip to Disneyland, while staying in Barcelona means you can counterbalance all that cultural sightseeing with an afternoon trip to the beach. With so many destinations within easy reach, a European city break is the perfect way to keep the kids entertained next half term.
