The best family holidays are the ones where parents can relax and children can run riot on the beach, in the pool and in the kids' clubs. And what better place to do this than overseas, in a beautiful place like Portugal?
There are many countries within just a few hours flight time that can offer great resorts with perfect weather and excellent beaches. Most of these resorts are perfect for families with a whole host of activities and clubs for children of all ages, which will provide the parents with some well deserved time out. Portugal holidays are certainly among the most popular, with quaint whitewashed buildings, beautiful beaches and fabulous weather. It prides itself on providing top notch holiday facilities, great hospitality and every comfort you could require. There is a full range of restaurants serving everything from freshly caught local cuisine to bangers and mash with a dollop of ketchup - perfect for little fussy eaters!
Portugal holidays can be filled with sports activities, discovering the local history, shopping or the obligatory sunbathing. And in the evening you can choose from quiet beachside bars, medieval themed taverns or bright and busy discos. If you travel through a major travel agent such as Thomas Cook they will be able to advise you on the most suitable resort for your family. As well as deciding on the type of resort, you will also need to decide on what type of accommodation you want to stay in. Choose from self catering apartments and villas which is where you are entirely self sufficient, to luxury hotels which provide cost-effective all inclusive options, giving you everything from three meals a day to included extras such as drinks and even ice cream.
