Luxury Family Holidays in the Sun in Europe

Who doesn’t want to grab a dose of sunshine after the long grey months of winter? With British summers often unreliable, we’re blessed to be within easy reach of some prime destinations for summer fun, whether you pack the car and drive to the South of France or head for the classic child-friendly beaches of Greece. 

Over the winter, the Mediterranean is mild and pleasant but bear in mind that a lot of family attractions may close at the end of the summer. If you want somewhere warmer, for some gentle sun, consider Tenerife and the other Canary IslandsMaltaCyprus, the AlgarveMadeira and the Azores. The Canary Islands and Madeira in particular, are very much year-round destinations.
