My husband and I are going on our first holiday with our five-month old. We would like to go to a nice family beach resort in Europe. Any recommendations? Names of hotels would be much appreciated.

I can highly recommend Scala in Kefalonia (Greece). It has a lovely beach and it is a very friendly place. Not too big but not too small. I have been twice both times self catering and they were both quite small apartments.

It is such a lovely place.

Thanks for messages. Scala sounds nice nbg, I will have a look online.

Yorkiegirl, I am interested in any European holiday suitable for families. Do you recommend anywhere in particular in the Mediterranean?

Italy is lovely and very child friendly. May be hot though.

Just been to South of France and that was really lovely as well.

Tamariu, a v small resort cove on the Costa brava - the hotel Tamariu looked v nice, but we stayed in an apartment. V small and pretty, with a selection of small bars and restaurants on a promenade alond a small beach. Or a slightly bigger neighbouring resort, Callela de franca (??). Not a place if you need 'entertainment', and would be packed solid in August, I think.

I agree Portugal - Burgau on the Algarve?

Thanks! Will definitely consider your recommendations. While searching for good holiday destinations, I stumbled across an excellent website called, which recommends places to stay with babies.
