Visit some these incredible destinations in Europe, and get planning your next fun-filled family holiday:

Mallorca, Spain

Mallorca has both culture and beach fun to enjoy. The beautiful island is home to all-inclusive resorts that are great if you don’t want to plan too much. These resorts usually host a number of kid’s clubs and pool complexes meaning there is plenty for adults and children to do. Agrotourism farms are also becoming very popular holiday destinations for families: you stay on a farm, enjoy being in the rural landscape of Spain, and learn first hand how to make jam and other produce. You may even be lucky enough to ride some of the farm’s horses and donkeys.

Amsterdam, Holland

While the city of Amsterdam may not be directly associated with family fun, it is actually one of the most exciting and family-friendly cities in Europe, jam-packed with culture and history that is accessible for all the family. Hire bikes and explore the city’s fantastic Science Museum, the heart-wrenching Anne Frank Museum and run through the colourful tulip fields of Keukenhof.

Halkidiki, Greece

With a number of resorts in this region to choose from, held together by three beautiful mountains, enjoy an active adventure holiday in the mountains in Halkidiki. Climb and hike through the mountains and explore abandoned villas, churches and temples. Visit traditional fishing villages and teach your kids where their dinner actually comes from.

Algarve, Portugal

The Algarve is filled with breathtaking beaches, islands you can explore and plenty of sun. However, much of the Algarve has become home to a number of overly touristy resorts, bars and restaurants. If you and your family delve a little deeper into the old historic towns and villages of the region, you’ll see why the Algarve is the perfect destination for all the family. Get away from the resorts and stay in the heart of the Portuguese countryside in a private rental. Most have a pool, a playground and are within walking distance of a historic local town.

Black Forest, Germany

It’s not hard to please the kids in the Black Forest – just visit towns with lidos, ski slopes, cycle paths and walking trails. Located in southwestern Germany, there are a number of eco-resorts and farm stays you can holiday at among impressive waterfalls, lakes, and ziplines, and you can even visit Gengenbach, where the Augustus Gloop scene was filmed for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
