Reviews of summer family holidays in Europe


Spain and France don't have the monopoly on European beaches, and our wide-ranging reviews of family holidays in Europe, many of them by writers based in the countries they're covering and offering priceless insider details, offer inspiration on Greece and its islands, Cyprus and North Cyprus, Turkey, Italy, Malta, Spain and the Canaries, and more. And we also take you in search of some great beaches in both Scandinavia and Eastern Europe, particularly Croatia and Bulgaria.
