I'm thinking of trying our first foreign holiday next summer but I wouldn't want to spend more than 2 - 2.5 hours max on a flight. It needs to be somewhere with entertainment for the kids and a swimming pool. I was thinking of hiring a caravan maybe at a European sites but I've never been so have no idea where to start. We'd love to go to Italy but not sure if that would be within 2.5 hours... Open to all ideas?!
We took our kids (6 and 4) abroad for the first time this summer to Menorca. It was fabulous, really family friendly and not overly priced. We travelled with Thompson and stayed in the Taylot apartments. I would highly recommend them. There is a supermarket next door, places to eat two minutes away, two beaches between 5 and 10 minutes walk away and 5 pools at the apartment themselves. It is 2.5 hours on the plane too. Good luck!
