Family Friendly Holiday Planning – Dreamy Destinations at Home and Away
Planning holidays when you have children can be a somewhat arduous task – especially when you’re in search of something a little extra special! Deciding whether to brave a trip abroad for the first time with young children is a big move, so for some a staycation is the preferable option and can save you no end of money on flight costs and new passports. Luckily, there are plenty of child-friendly places across the globe that offer a great balance of luxury for parents and things to see and do for your kiddos. Although we’re not quite ready to brave a trip away with baby number two on the way just yet, here are some simply stunning locations to inspire your summer holiday plans.
France is absolutely perfect for a first time family holiday abroad, and whether you’re in search of a weekend city break, a rustic country getaway or a week spent relaxing on a beach, France certainly has it all. Choose the part of France you visit carefully, as some of the southern regions could prove to be a little too hot if you’re travelling with youngsters who don’t react well to the heat.
There are plenty of things to keep both you and your children happy, from delicious local delicacies, historical market towns, the gorgeous region of the Dordogne and of course, France is home to every child’s dream holiday destination; Disneyland Paris!
If you don’t feel quite ready to brave jetting off to warmer climates quite yet, then Cornwall is a dreamy location and a wonderful choice for a family staycation. This area of the UK is quite simply stunning and is a gorgeous place for your kiddos to explore and get closer to nature. If you do opt to stay in the UK for your holiday, you have the added advantage of saving money on flights and updating expired passports which means a little extra allowance to spend on somewhere special to stay.
Whether you choose to explore The Lizard and Kynance Cove, test your balancing skills on a surfboard, visit the otter sanctuary or enjoy a swim in the Bude Sea Pool, there is a myriad of activities to keep you busy. Don’t forget to treat yourself plenty of Cornish pasties and cream teas!
If you and yours are food lovers, then there really is no place quite like Italy to enjoy delicious freshly made, local cuisine! This country is packed full of culture, history and freshly prepared pizza and local wines to sample, not to mention exciting places to explore. Italy boasts golden sandy beaches, inspiring countryside and an abundance of Roman historical sites to visit, so there really is something to suit every taste.
The bustling capital city of Rome has a plethora of landmarks that you simply must-see, and Pompeii and Herculaneum are truly incredible if you’re a history geek! Italy can get rather hot at times, so it’s worth doing a little research before you jet off to this beautiful country.
