CLUB MED FAMILY RESORTS IN EUROPE.

Avatar   By Anna Sarjeant - House of Travel Content Specialist


Because if there’s sun, sand, ice-cream (and dad’s got sport) everyone’s happy. These sun-filled Club Med resorts are our top picks for a European summer.

FRANCE: Opio en Provence Resort

GREAT FOR

Sport and sunshine. Golf, tennis, volleyball, archery, mini football, Pilates and a fully equipped gym are all included in the price.

OVERVIEW

Welcome to Provence, a region the entire family will benefit from. Nestled between sea and mountainside, the Opio en Provence Resort is flanked by olive groves and flooded in sunshine. There’s an outdoor pool where you can swim a lap, or simply lap up the sun’s rays. There’s a golf school (and green) for dad, tennis school for the kids and mum has a spa complete with Roman bath and Zen tea room. If you’re after some quite time, the 4 kids’ clubs take critters as young as 4 months and as old as 17.

WHAT WE LOVE

Six bars and restaurants. Including The Provence's panoramic terrace for al fresco dining and The Loup which is casual by day and more intimate by night (hear that, dad? Take mum for a cocktail).

PORTUGAL: Da Balaia

GREAT FOR

Families who like a less family-centric vibe; this one’s popular with both families and couples.

OVERVIEW

Perched on a red clifftop and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, this resort enjoys a home in the south of the country. The Algarve is the jewel in Portugal’s crown, with an attractive laid-back ambience, plenty of sunshine and beautiful coastline. Da Balaia features three bars and two restaurants, all of which are central to the resort, and there are plenty of sporting options for both children and adults alike, including a striking clifftop golf course, tennis court and archery school. A spa for those looking for rejuvenation and various kids’ clubs, for, well those in need of rejuvenation.

WHAT WE LOVE

There’s a Flying Trapeze School with circus activities. That’s right, you and your kids can learn to swing through the air like a chimpanzee. With the added reassurance of nets and instructors.

SICILY: Kamarina Hotel

GREAT FOR

Traditional Sicilian splendour.

OVERVIEW

Set in a colossal 75-hectare resort, Kamarina Hotel features all manner of beautiful Sicilian features, from flower gardens to swimming pools and paved lanes framed by blossoming bougainvillea. There are three kids' G.O®s clubs, for tots from four months all the way up to 17 years old. Frequent the five snazzy bars including a nightclub bar if you feel like busting out some dance moves, and four diverse restaurants serving everything from Italian fare to traditional Sicilian dishes. Got fussy eaters? Don't fret, The Dunes is an Italian trattoria style restaurant serving a buffet full of international favourites.

WHAT WE LOVE

Included activities include a flying trapeze school, mini golf, sailing and a whole plethora of sports such as football, tennis, archery, basketball, water-polo, Pilates, kayaking....the list is almost endless.

ABOUT ANNA SARJEANT

As a self-confessed travel addict, the majority of my wage, time and daydreams are spent seeing as much of the planet as my pay packet will allow. My love for a good jaunt may have been brought on by an inquisitive mind, but I am more inclined to think it was induced by several childhood holidays spent in a rain-lashed caravan. Up a mountain. On a farm. In Britain. Bored.
