Family villa holidays

Dreamy villas in Europe for large family holidays

Last updated 6th June 2017

When travelling with everyone from toddlers to grandparents, a sure way to win everyone over is a villa holiday that includes everything from flights and car-hire to airport transfers and entertainment – and let the holiday provider deal with the details. Here are a few great choices for 2017.


1/5  Aphrodite Hills, Paphos, South West Cyprus

Private villa with pool, return London flights, free car hire and travel insurance

With an 18-hole golf course, spa, tennis courts and long, lovely views over the Mediterranean, Aphrodite Hills is a perfect resort for grown-ups. But, throw a kid’s club with its own Dream Team Soccer School and activity programme into the mix, then add a crèche for under threes, plus a fun waterpark, and this is probably as close as you’ll get to idyllic for a multi-gen holiday this year.

Ancient Paphos, European Capital of Culture 2017, is 20 minutes away. Limassol is under half-an-hour and the culture-rich city of Larnaca is less than an hour’s drive. Sunny, south west coast beaches are nearby and the villa also has a private pool and gardens.

Four bedroom, three bathroom villa with private pool, terrace and garden. Car hire’s included and the resort has its own shopping village.
