European with 4 boys aged 9-15?

Looking at a summer holiday in Europe, probably a resort. Would love somewhere the boys had plenty to do, with a little bit of freedom, but was still naice? Have looked at holiday village and Sol Kathmandu, ideally would like something a bit more sporty rather than kiddy if that makes sense?

Probably All inclusive to mitigate against having to remortgage for soft drinks and ice cream.

Any gems? TIA

I’m struggling to find much to be honest. It’s either kids slides/clubs or extortionate sport type resorts.

Neilsons beachclubs might suit (or they might fall into the category of "extortionate sport type resorts"?)

@emmathedilemma £11k. For a week. B&B 😭

Think we are gonna just suck it up and go Brits abroad to a nice ish resort in Portugal. Not ideal but loads for the teens to do so hopefully should be a relatively peaceful holiday. Plus. All inc wine and gin and wine and gin. 😂

How about a large Eurocamp camping village? Lots of freedom to roam, usually have bike hire and the larger camps often have large football pitches/outdoor gym equipment/ multiple pools/ waterslides etc and access to watersports if on the coast.
Some can be a bit remote but others are fairly close to airports and some within easy walking distance of a town or resort.
Obviously not all inclusive but bigger camps usually have a few restaurants/cafes/takeaway/supermarkets on site.
Also a variety of accommodation if basic mobile homes don't do it for you.

@emmathedilemma I know it’s obscene. The week after we are going it would have been an extra £1900!

Def don’t want euro camp…. Only 1 of the kids belongs to me… I’d 💯 end up cooking and cleaning for everyone. Not. A. Chance.

We’ve booked the Jupiter in Alberferia if anyone is interested. Not my normal choice of holiday but happy kids means peace and quiet so it’s good enough! Rooms look lovely, food probably average and a wealth of water slides, pitches and unlimited ice cream
