Neilson's Retreat Beachclub on a sandy beach on the west coast of mainland Greece is a great place for spending quality family time together as well as for doing your own thing, with children aged four months and up ably looked after in the crèche or kids' clubs, and a whole host of activities included in your holiday price: watersports, road- and mountain-biking on stunning local terrain, tennis and fitness classes.
Most of the light, bright rooms have views of the sea and some of the Ionian islands; some have contemporary decor. Those travelling with younger children need to be aware that this is a hillside resort with lots of step and slopes. Conversely, the calm waters means the watersports is better suited to beginners than intermediates or the advanced.
Retreat Beachclub is one of the venues offering Neilson's Stay and Sail family adventures, giving you the chance to spend a week at the Beachclub (taking an 'Introduction to yachting' course for beginners if necessary) then a week on a yacht exploring this lovely part of the Med.
Most meals are included in your holiday package, but a couple of evenings are left free to experience the authentic local restaurants of the village of Sivota a 10-minute walk away.
Retreat Beachclub is about 75 minutes from Preveza airport, with transfers and return flights included in your holiday price.
