Self catering family holidays


Self catering holidays are great for families who want an inexpensive break away. They can include self catering properties, like villas or cottages, as well as beach resorts abroad.

These resorts usually provide accommodation and a few free activities as part of the package, but otherwise you have the freedom to eat when and where you like and aren’t restricted by resort times. They are also popular with adventurous families who don’t like to follow the crowd, and would rather choose their own daily activities and explore as independent travellers. Most resorts which have their own restaurants still allow you to book meals in the own hotels (for a charge) if you decide to eat there, so if there’s ever a night you just don’t fancy going out, then you and your family will still be well catered for.
