Tenerife family holidays

Tenerife family holidays

The largest of the seven Canary Islands, Tenerife has long been a family favourite. The island may enjoy a burgeoning tourist trade, but its distinctive landscape is as unspoilt and beautiful as ever. Tenerife no longer houses active volcanoes, but their presence still looms large over the island, with Mount Teide the highest point in Spain at 3,718m above sea level. By Kai

Think outside the Amusement Park

Think outside the Amusement Park

Between Disney and Universal alone, there are no fewer than eight theme parks to visit in the Orlando area. It’s enough to fill not just one but several holidays to Florida. And that would be a shame, because, as any native Floridian—including this one—will tell you, there’s much more to the Sunshine State than roller coasters and water slides. No trip to Florida would be complete without an experience of both the state’s unique natural landscapes and the inventive people and places that gave the state its reputation for quirkiness that still thrives today.

Large villas to rent in Italy

Large villas to rent in Italy

Sitting around the table on the terrace as the sun sets; drinking deep, dark reds produced just miles away; watching the kids play in your orange grove – these aren’t just ideas dreamed up by travel writers (though admittedly I did just utter them – but bear with me). Italian holidays offer a slice of La Dolce Vita – and a few slices of pizza, besides – alongside treasures of natural, historical, gastronomical and cultural importance. And let’s face it – that’s a whole lot of importance. By Sophie

Family Fun on the Farm in the Cotswolds

Family Friendly Puglia

Puglia—or, more specifically, the Salento Peninsula that forms the heel of Italy’s “boot”—is a fantastic destination for families, both for the wide range of things to do and see packed into this relatively compact area, and for the laid-back, kid-friendly pace that characterizes much of southern Italy.

Family Fun on the Farm in the Cotswolds

Family Fun on the Farm in the Cotswolds

Searching for a unique way to entertain the entire family on your next holiday? Something that doesn’t involve a computer or television screen, perhaps? How about a day out on a farm, learning about the local wildlife, interacting with the animals and eating delicious organic food sourced from just up the lane? All of this and more is easy to come by during a visit to one of the many organic farms dotted around the beautiful Cotswolds’ countryside. So pull on your boots, grab the kids and get ready for an incredibly fun (and tasty!) day out with nature! By Kit

 Meet in the Middle on London Family Holidays

Meet in the Middle on London Family Holidays

Planning a family holiday involves trying to please everyone. But it’s not that simple. How do you choose a destination that’s kid-friendly yet full of culture? Action-packed but with scope to relax? If there’s one city that can be relied upon to entertain adults and littles ones alike, it’s London. The capital crams in enough shops, parks and restaurants to engross tourists of all ages, so you can have your cake and eat it too (and perhaps their share for afters!). By Kai

Eating out with kids in Barcelona

Eating out with kids in Barcelona

Barcelona is one of those cities that was almost built for family holidays. You see an exquisite Gaudi building, they see a 'spooky bone house'. You enjoy a stroll down the historical boulevard of Las Ramblas, they enjoy trying to 'gently persuade' you to buy a rabbit from one of the open-air pet stores. Everyone's a winner. But after a morning of sightseeing, where do you head to feed your tribe? By Lucy

Find the perfectly sized property for your break

Find the perfectly sized property for your break

There will be times when you need to find a four-bedroom farmhouse – pronto. Ok, so you might not have that many children to fill it, if any, but what if it’s your turn to organise an extended-family getaway or reunion; take the helm of a team-building weekend for work? Whatever the event, renting a large self-catering property in the UK can provide a great setting for breaks away: board games by the fire; dinners in the communal kitchen; days spent sunning yourselves in the garden – going large on a getaway has its benefits.

Bahamas: experience the family holiday of a lifetime in the Bahamas

Bahamas: experience the family holiday of a lifetime in the Bahamas

Once a small island on the swampy banks of the River Lee, the Republic of Ireland’s second city, Cork, has since grown into a bustling metropolis. The city’s international character and status, as a thriving centre of culture and the arts, was underlined in 2005 with its being awarded the accolade of European Capital of Culture. By Helen

Sardinia: treat your loved ones to a Sardinian summer holiday

Sardinia: treat your loved ones to a Sardinian summer holiday

Situated in the heart of the Mediterranean, Sardinia is the kind of island paradise that so often takes form in the dreams of restless travellers. White sand beaches, raked by a glimmering turquoise sea, give way to a wild landscape of mountains and forests; caves, olive groves, springs and waterfalls spread out in all directions, just waiting to be explored.

Nice: head to the French Riviera for a special family vacation

Nice: head to the French Riviera for a special family vacation

Nice is something of an anomaly among French holiday destinations. Its proximity to the millionaire’s playground of Monaco and Monte Carlo, not to mention the movie star hangout of nearby Cannes, means that people all too often shoehorn it into the same category. The wonderful thing about Nice is that, whilst it does share some of the glitz and glamour of its neighbours, there is a far more relaxed atmosphere for holidaymakers amidst astonishingly breathtaking surroundings.
