Hi. I am the grandma of 2 dgss who will be 4 and 9 months next April. We would like to take them and their mum and dad somewhere sunny and suitable for children for a week next April. Needs to be not too far (shorthaul only), suitable for childen, and reasonably quiet, although not closed for the winter. Anyone any ideas? We have thought of Spain (Costas Blanca and Almeria) and possibly one of the Canary Islands - but are they suitable for small children and ancient grandparents? Any ideas anyone?

I would recommend the Canaries definitely. And I wish you were my Mum!

tunisia - we went at Easter a couple of years ago, it was lovely.

Thanks for the replies. Can I ask which Canary Island would you go for/which resort in Tunisia. Both destinations would be OK for us as local airport flies there.

Port el Kantouai. Not very "authentic" but nice hotels, you can get a driver for not many £££ to go nice places (eg El Jem). Nice restaurants, nice beach. What's not to like.

Tenerife was great.
Los Cristianos was nice, very 'British' in parts but it depends what your budget is really and what youre looking for.
What about Italy? Great with the children.

Italy is great in April if you want to visit cities, but most of the beach resorts will be shut (season starts in May). However, you could consider the lakes (Garda, Como, Maggiore), or perhaps a stay in an agriturismo to enjoy the wine, the food etc...
