It’s not always easy to find a holiday destination that appeals to all the family. It’s hard to find the ideal location that has the peace, relaxation and culture that normally appeals to the grown ups whilst having plenty of activities to occupy the children, whether they are tiny toddlers or teens. These days, it’s becoming increasingly common to invite the grandparents on holiday too. Whilst this usually makes for a great holiday all round…. after all, what nicer way could there be for the children to spent time with their grandparents whilst, selfishly for parents, what could be more ideal than some extra pairs of hands to help, it does add yet another dimension in terms of entertainment options!
And, importantly, with a family to cater for, the destination has to be affordable too. Choosing self catering options helps with prices and also gives the whole family a chance to relax together, but don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you have to eat in all the time! It’s a holiday after all and it’s still nice to be able to take a night off the cooking and eat out together.
So, where in Italy do Bookings For You recommend for family holidays and multigenerational holidays? In short, the Italian Lakes wins hands down every time… and in particular Lake Maggiore. While some of the Italian Lakes are suited more to romantic breaks for two, Lake Maggiore has something to offer everyone. With fantastic lidos with waterslides and inflatable obstacle courses for the water babies in the families, to water sports lessons for the teens, stunning lakeside towns and villages to explore for the grown ups and beautiful scenery and wonderful sights to enjoy at a more sedate pace for the older generation, it certainly manages to tick all the boxes. And, for those looking to eat out, what better than a delicious bowl of Italian pasta to end the day?
The good news is that Bookings For You also have some great properties to offer families in this beautiful region. Take this 4 bedroom villa in the Italian Lakes just a short walk from the lakeside and with a stunning private pool. Sleeping up to 10, it’a a great option for larger families and with prices starting at just £35 per person per night, it’s great value for money too. It’s within walking distance of 2 great restaurants but for those who prefer to eat at home, it has a fantastic Weber BBQ to enjoy. It’s also a short walk from the lakeside beaches, perfect for that evening dip in the lake after a day sightseeing!
