I think its only really the canary islands in feb thats definitely warmer in Europe - thats about a 4 hour flight from memory? Lots of family friendly resorts though.

Canaries or Cape Verde. You won't get any short haul places being warm in Feb. Canaries are 5 hr flight, CV is 6.

any recommendations for Canaries resorts or companies that do family friendly holidays in these locations?

The canaries is short haul! Cyprus in February CAN be lovely but it's a risk... Definitely safest sticking with the canaries! I've had some lovely holidays in both lanzarote and fuertaventura has amazing sand dunes but is quiet! Depends what you are after

yes anything 8 hours or under is fine! Quiet, and warm is what we're after. With some children activities as I'm assuming we'll be unlikely to be swimming that time of year

Tenerife is lovely then, just make sure the hotel has a heated pool, aclimatized ones are freezing at that time of year.

We return to The Costa Adeje Gran, next week. Their childrens pool, 12" deep is heated all year round. Lovely hotel, 15 min walk to the beach at El Duque, its up hill on the way back but taxis cost about 10€. A few resturants and a supermarket right next to hotel, but the seafront where all the other resturants and bars are, is a again a 15 min walk. The Colonial is our favourite bar, does lovely food including great childrens portions of familiar dishes. It was a godsend when our dd was younger, lovely place to watch the sunset too.

As justtrying has said find somewhere with a heated pool and you will certainly be able to swim (well toddler will anyway, they are generally braver than us) Lanzarote can be windy and I wasn't thinking when I suggested fuertaventura ... Beaches can be a lot of walking for a toddler! The south of each island is warmer as a rule than the north but I believe gran canaria has the warmest all year climate, I haven't been but my friend has a villa there and was sunbathing everyday this February when she went!
