Including child-friendly self-catering apartments and villas as well as stylish hotel rooms and suites, the Pine Cliffs Resort near the popular Algarve resort of Albufeira is a favourite among those looking for luxury family holidays in Portugal, with Premiership footballers among its clientele.

On-site amenities include an array of restaurants, an Annabel Croft tennis academy with tuition for all ages, a golf course, a kids' club and even a kids' concierge to cater for your little ones. Guests can use all pools in the vast resort, which is served by a little train.

The sandy beach is a short walk (via a lift and steps) from the apartments and offers a choice of watersports and even a beach club serving a range of meals and drinks. Fitness classes for all ages also make this an ideal choice for an active family holiday in Europe, and there's a luscious spa for when you need some pampering.

For those looking for exclusivity, the Ocean Suites is a secluded complex within the resort, with 76 chic seafront apartments, an Italian restaurant, a luxury shopping area and a dedicated entrance for guests.
