Family friendly holiday ideas from HomeAway Holiday-Rentals
Self catering holiday accommodation in great family holiday destinations
Private holiday homes are ideal for families, providing space, private facilities and a safe environment for the children. Everyone has their own space, giving the kids room to breathe and parents room to relax. The flexible catering options also give you the ability to cater to your families preferences, with the option to either cook in your own kitchen or try out the local restaurants instead of being restricted by all-inclusive package deals. Many holiday homes are pet friendly too, so Fido or Fluffy can come too!

With holidays being a key time for re-establishing family bonds, private holiday homes are ideal for larger, extended family groups too.
