As we all know, when it is time to plan a family holiday we can get quite stressed with all the things we need to think about and organise. If you have a family with the young children then you need to make sure that your destination is child friendly and has plenty on offer for both adults and youngsters.

Keeping everyone happy

One of the secrets to making that perfect family holiday is to ensure the kids are happy. Your holiday may be in the perfect place for you but if the kids aren’t happy, they'll be sure to let you know about it! After spending all that money and time organising it, your holiday could essentially be ruined so it’s always important to consider the needs of all your fellow travellers.

The grand question then is how do you ensure that every family member has a great holiday to remember? There's just one answer to that: keep the kids happy and the rest is easy!

This is especially so when the kids are young, as their idea of an amazing holiday is mostly one where they can run around and get involved with a range of activities. Traditionally holiday parks have catered especially well to this market – though one might do well to rent a holiday villa which offers all the advantages of home in a foreign setting.

As many holiday villas have their own swimming pools and gardens the kids can have plenty of fun splashing around and exploring or playing in the garden whilst parents can take comfort from the high levels of security and privacy afforded by this accommodation. Villas don’t have to be expensive either, and families watching the pennies can find great deals from reputable companies such as James Villas.

Villa accommodation

Staying in a villa means you are not tied into any resort schedule so you'll need to find entertainment for the kids elsewhere. However if you are looking for Florida holidays, for example, there are plenty of entertainment opportunities for all the family with many amusement parks including Walt Disney World Resort, SeaWorld and Universal Studios.

Holidays to Florida offer the chance to get away while still having the advantage of a shared language. The culture however is surprisingly different. With a great range of foods, sounds and sights, renting a villa in Florida can be a good option for family holiday makers. The sun is always shining and the people are friendly; plus the kids will love all the entertainment opportunities.

If you don't fancy going so far afield you can always take a villa in Europe. Spain holidays allow you to get all the sun, good food and diverse culture you need but closer to home. For the kids there are many water parks, beaches and amusements that they'll love to get into. From kite surfing to climbing, sports like tennis, golf and many areas have kids clubs too.
