February Half Term Holidays

February half term. Spring may be on the horizon, but it’s a fair way off yet, and the Great British weather is probably at its least great.

That can mean only one thing: a family holiday. If you're craving a Vitamin D injection then there's a beach somewhere with your name on it or, if you're looking for an action-packed adventure, we've got some great suggestions up our sleeves too, including the finest family-friendly ski resorts in the Alps.

We understand that long flights and dramatic time differences may not be an option for such a short break (unless you want the children going back to school and falling asleep at their desks with jetlag), so we can suggest plenty of options that remove these problems entirely. As there's only a short time to get away during half term, we can help you make the most of this time to give your children (and yourselves) a real break.

If your children are the sort who are used to busy days at school and so are bouncing off the walls with boredom when they're at home, do not fear, because we know the hotels with the best Kids Clubs and the ski resorts with the top ski schools where they can be kept busy all day if needed. One of our top picks for sun at this time of year has got to be the Caribbean, with Jamaica as a particular favourite for families, as there are water and land sports galore, as well as plenty to keep parents happy. For skiing, you can't beat the Alps for a family ski holiday, with world-class resorts that may as well have been designed for families, just a short flight away.

If you're planning a luxury family holiday for February half term with young children in tow, then much-loved children's party people Sharky & George, who we've joined forces with, will put together a carefully selected goodie bag kitted with bits and bobs to keep the children entertained throughout the trip.
