Finding the perfect location to escape to for a May half term holiday can be difficult when you have to consider keeping the little ones entertained while you relax. With that in mind, we took a closer look at the Forte Village resort, with plenty on offer to demonstrate why this Italian hideaway has been called the ‘best resort in the world’.
With eight hotels plus 13 luxury villas, there is a wide range of accommodation for guests to choose from. Guests have up to 21 restaurants to select from during high season, as well as multiple pools – providing guests at this resort with plenty of opportunities for rest and relaxation. Taking younger guests into consideration, a full children’s Wonderland can be found around the resort, providing ten inspiring reasons to visit Forte Island for a May half term holiday…
1. The Chelsea Football Academy
Aspiring footballers in the family? Children between four and 14 have the chance to train with some of Chelsea’s most successful players and coaches here. With week-long football courses available throughout the summer, each child enrolled will be given their own kit and awarded a diploma at the end of the course, helping your little ones learn teamwork techniques as well as specific skills for defenders, midfielders and strikers.
2. Tennis Star Academy
Young tennis players have the chance to attend the Junior Tennis Academy Camp, giving them the chance to improve their technique in a fun atmosphere. The Forte Village tennis academy calls on the services of Grand Slam champions to make sure players are trained by legendary professionals, giving your children an experience they’ll never forget while they develop their skills.

With two children’s pools within the pool area your little ones will always be able to have fun while being safely monitored by the amazing Wonderland staff. Constant activities and games started by staff aim to involve all young guests and encourage socialisation.
