I’ve asked them for help in choosing where we will go as a family (I’m actually planning for next Summer as Paul and I will both be 40 and we want a family holiday as a treat to ourselves) – here are their suggestions:
Majorca – Spain
Sant Teodor – Italy
Majorca Island is confirmed, in its entirety, as one of the most family-friendly Spanish islands, with more than 320 child-friendly beaches. Bays of all shades of blue that protect the beaches from the hot winds coming from the south, with shallow and inert waters, which will leave the whole family breathless. On clear days, it is even possible to see from the beaches in the north-east of the island the coasts of Menorca Island. Renting an apartment in Majorca will be the choice that you will not regret taking!
Sant Teodor – Italy
Immense white beaches washed by a crystalline and shallow sea, perfect for our children. You will have the feeling of being in a Caribbean beach instead you will be couple of hours flight from England, in San Teodoro, Sardinia. Children can play safely, while adults can relax enjoying the red summer sunsets. San Teodoro, however, is much more than paradise beaches. For those who do not want to give up the culture, it’s possible to visit the Arzachena Archaeological Park, which includes important nuragi complexes, giants’ tombs, necropolis and museums. It will be a holiday that you will want to repeat!
