For over 55 years, Abercrombie & Kent have been creating tailor-made luxury holidays for families, in every corner of the world. That adds up to a lot of travel experience, and a whole heap of local knowledge on some of earth’s most wonderful destinations. So when they’re highly recommending five of Europe’s leading luxury resorts for family holidays this year, it’s probably worth hearing why.

1/5 Verdura Resort, South West Sicily

Save 10% on family holidays from now until 26 November 2018

Sicily’s south west coast is always a little sunnier for longer than the rest of the island. It’s also where to find charming villages, several truly spectacular beaches including world famous Scala dei Turchi (just a 40 minute drive along the coast) and, in the case of Verdura Resort, quite probably one of the most family-friendly approaches to luxury holidays in Europe right now.
