If you’re busy planning your 2014 break with the kids in tow, be inspired by our Top 10 Luxury Family Holidays from around the world:
Just a short flight from home your family can discover the magic of Halkidiki – a Greek region with plenty of history to inspire young minds. The beaches are just the ticket for smaller children; safe, clean and offering facilities in which to grab some shade and an ice cream.
One to try: The Sani Resort (including Porto Sani Village, Sani Asterias Suites, Sani Beach Hotel and Sani Beach Club) – is a great option for families. The Sani Beach Club in particular has brilliant facilities for those travelling with children, and with a crèche, separate children’s and teen’s clubs all run by UK childcare specialists Worldwide Kids Company according to Ofsted standards.
Mainland Spain offers plenty for the discerning travelling family; from the interesting sites and cultural spots of Barcelona to the magical Mediterranean coastline. But the Spanish islands have long been favourites, with Mallorca in particular offering a superb climate for a summer holiday or autumn half term break, and also boasts the world’s largest waterpark.
One to try: At La Residencia you’ll discover a chic, stylish escape for grownups, as well as amenities for younger guests too. The luxury offerings include a kids’ club, with dedicated activities such as pottery workshops and cooking classes with a chef, as well as tennis coaching and donkey tours! We recommend families stay at the Villa – a former private residence with deluxe self-catering accommodation built on three levels and offering three double bedrooms and its own heated swimming pool.
With plenty of direct flights from regional UK airports and safe beaches ideal for snorkelling, Cyprus is a brilliant option for a European escape. Its picturesque landscapes and fascinating history lay waiting to be explored, and you’re sure to find friendly locals keen to divulge the secrets of their island.

The Island of Eternal Spring – Tenerife - is great for February half term, October half term or Christmas, as although the weather is balmy and warm, temperatures do not get high enough levels to make parents concerned about constantly reapplying sun cream to active tots! There’s also a great choice of regional departures and also options for adjoining rooms or villas.
One to try: On the island’s Grand Hotel Bahia Del Duque children will be spoilt rotten! The hotel boasts its own children’s club with special themed dinners and mini discos, but also has a Teen Lounge with internet and PlayStations.
