Europe may just be the ultimate continent for family holidays. There is something for everyone, whether you are taking the tentative steps of your first family holiday with a new baby, or needing to entertain those hard to please teenagers.
We Brits love a sun-filled summer holiday and Europe delivers
every time. The other critical requirement for a summer holiday is
a family-friendly hotel. Many lay claim to the title, few deliver
fully. Which is where we come in; our experts have travelled the
length and breadth of Europe and know the resorts, boutique hotels
and villas that really walk the walk when it comes to families.
Oldies but goodies France and Italy offer it all in terms of
delicious food (for even the pickiest of eaters), cultural cities,
classical ruins (for slightly older children) and beautiful beaches
galore. Cyprus is excellent for some early or late sun (think
Easter and October half term), while Scandinavia is the place to
embrace winter; go to see Father Christmas in Finland and head to
Swedish Lapland in search of adventure - dog sledding, anyone?
