The super-stylish TUI SENSATORI Resort Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

Easter is a great time of year for a family holiday – long enough for a proper getaway and long-haul travel, but with warm enough temperatures in parts of the Med for a European beach break too. We’ve shared our top overseas family holiday destinations for Easter.

Marrakech, Morocco   
This old walled city is the perfect destination for a long weekend and warm city break, with magical bazaars and winding alleys to get lost in and snake-charmers, storytellers and acrobats to wonder at in the medina’s main square.

Family time at Les Villages Nature® Paris.

Holidays that offer the ‘best of both worlds’ or ‘something for everyone’ – such as a combined seaside and city break, a camping holiday followed by a night or two’s splurge in a luxury resort, or a theme-park and countryside break – can be ideal for those travelling with children of all ages, ensuring variety and a welcome change of pace during the course of your getaway.

Theme-park holidays can be particularly full-on, and with all that fun and adrenaline it’s great to have somewhere peaceful to retire to and some quieter activities, such as those offered by Les Villages Nature® Paris, which is just an eight-minute drive from Disneyland Paris...

Dog-friendly holiday parcs with Eurocamp.

Dogs are part of the family and deserve to come on holiday with you whenever that’s feasible. And that’s certainly true of mainland Europe, and especially of holiday parcs, where you get space, freedom and the chance to take your four-legged friend on amazing beach or countryside walks during your break. Many holiday parcs have dog-friendly accommodation options. We’ve shared what you need to think about when booking a holiday with your dog in tow – and shared our favourite holiday parcs with dogs.

• Talk to your vet about your travel plans: where you’re going, how you’re travelling and what you plan to do there. He or she will give you all the information you need, including applying for your PETS passport.

• Give your family the exact details of your dog so that your...

Family on the slopes in Andorra.

Those who’ve already skied or boarded in Andorra know that for a small country, it packs a big punch and is an ideal place to take to the slopes. Above all, this is a fantastic destination for family ski holidays, with masses of gentle green and blue runs to help build little ones’ confidence, some of the best English-speaking ski schools in Europe, and some hotels offering free kids’ clubs for ages 3–11 years. We’ve looked at what makes Andorra so special.

• Huge Investment in Ski Resorts
Andorra has invested 10s of millions of Euros in infrastructure over the last 5-10 years, meaning its resorts of Arinsal, El Tarter, Pas de la Casa and Soldeu have an almost purpose-built feel. Arinsal is great for families and beginners, with quieter, gentle slopes, excellent après...

Kid's activities at Holiday Village Mallorca

With Brexit making some people nervous about booking a holiday in Europe in 2019, we strongly recommend looking at all-inclusive holidays such as those offered by First Choice. Not only are all-inclusive packages fully protected against any unforeseen circumstances surrounding Brexit, but they also proof you against the weakness of the pound against the euro because you’ve paid for just about everything in advance in sterling. Facilities including kids’ clubs, sports academies and even the likes of aerial adventure courses, which vary by resort, make all-inclusive resorts perfect for families who like to combine activities with relaxation. 

And Spain is as fabulous a destination for a family holidays as ever, with its seemingly endless sandy beaches, pretty coves, lively...
