Family-Friendly Fun Activities

When you’re trying to cater for everyone, it can become an impossible task to find the perfect holiday destination that will keep all the family happy.

We thought we’d put a stop to the family disputes and come up with a few family-friendly holiday ideas to get you inspired for your next summer break abroad!

  1. Explore to Your Heart’s Content

A family of adventurers should head to France to experience some of the stunning sights that the country has to offer people of all ages.

From the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris to the lessons in World War II in Normandy, France is iconic. If you don’t mind the cold, head to the snowy French Alps for some skiing lessons, whilst enjoying the stunning backdrop of Mont Blanc. Younger children can toboggan down the slopes and there’s a waterpark and mountainside restaurants to keep you busy on your holiday.

If you prefer to have your feet on more solid ground, head to Dordogne in central France for a huge variety of things to see and do for the whole family. Medieval castles overlooking the river, adventure parks and old cave paintings are all things to add to the itinerary.

  1. For Foodie Families

If food is what bonds you all together, Italy is the place to be for your next family holiday! Tuscany, Sardinia, Florence, Sicily – these Italian paradises offer hearty food made from the freshest ingredients, along with a delicious glass of wine or prosecco to wash it down with.

Head to the coast for some of the freshest seafood you’ll ever find, such as the charming city of Portoferraio, which is perfect for food-lovers of all ages!

  1. Accommodation That’s Fun for Everyone

When looking for spots that will keep the whole family happy, how about camping? But not camping as you might know it – a luxury mobile holiday home in a Eurocamp holiday parc in various destinations in Spain, France and Italy.

With shops, restaurants, water parks, BBQs, kids’ clubs, zip wires, climbing walls and many more activities, there’ll certainly be something for everyone when you book holiday accommodation like this, and it’ll all be right on your doorstep! What could be easier?


If you’re stuck for ideas for your next holiday, keep all the family happy with one of the fun destinations above. Whether you’re looking for good food, adventure or relaxation, Europe has it all, and you can experience the best of it with our holiday tips above.
