With 2 young children of my own, I know that the key to a successful family holiday is for the children to be happy. After all, if they’re not happy you will soon know about it!! A crucial factor in ensuring your little ones will be happy is picking the right location for your holiday and the right holiday accommodation.
As a family with young children, we have always opted for self catering villas and apartments, preferring the freedom and privacy that this gave us. 99% of the time, it was also the most economical choice allowing us to have that extra bit of spending money during out holiday as well!
We’ve also always favoured Italy. Italy is great holiday destination for families. Italians love children and welcome them with open arms. However, Italy is a big country and it’s important that you choose an area that offers plenty of activities for your children to enjoy during your stay.
A firm favourite with our family is Lake Maggiore in the Italian Lakes. There is an incredible amount for children to see and do there, whatever the weather. Please do take a look at our family guide to holidays on Lake Maggiore to start planning your stay.
Another option in Italy which tends to be popular with families is Tuscany. Bookings For You offer some great family friendly villas and apartments in Tuscany. Get in touch with them today and they will be happy to offer advice on the best destination for you.
Dependent on your choice of holiday property, you may well have the convenience of a play area on site to keep the youngest of children entertained. You may also have the luxury of either a private or communal swimming pool on hand. Many a happy hour can be spent on holiday with the parents enjoying the luxury of reading a book whilst the children play in the pool. However, whilst many children will be happy to spend hours by the swimming pool at your choice of holiday property, it’s important for parents to have other activities up their sleeves to keep them entertained. Again, Bookings For You have taken the time to write a guide to family holidays in Tuscany and have spent time researching what there is to see and do in Tuscany for families so you don’t have to!
So, if you think Tuscany or Lake Maggiore or one of our other Italy holiday destinations might suit your family, get in touch today. We do always advise families with school children to book as early as possible. As you can guess, holidays during the school vacation period tend to be extremely popular.
