Where to go in Europe with a single 7 year old,

Not too fussy on where, would be in May/June or September to avoid the really hot weather, but the priority would be somewhere fantastic for a 7 year old girl.
She loves swimming, but kids clubs, where she could socialise, and inclusion in the evening would be brilliant!
Would need two bedrooms, but other than that, it's all about the child😁

I love Greece. Corfu has really good beaches for kids.

I’m far from expert, but in May I think you’d have your best chance in half term week, followed by later in June as some European countries finish then (inc Scotland and Ireland). September, almost all schools have gone back. Maybe the first week in September?

We’ve looked at this but if we go in main term time, there’s less children around aka potential playmates for DS.

I was really looking for resort recommendations, somewhere that was really fab for children.
This is my grandchild, so although we are active, Mark Warner would probably be a waste for us unfortunately!

We are taking my DD to Cyprus in may hopefully. She will be 17 months so a lot younger than your DGC but friends are coming along with their 5 YO. There are some beautiful family resorts and lovely sandy beaches.

We thought about Crete too, Corfu and any of the canneries. They're all beautiful and have lovely family resorts. Will be lovely weather but hopefully not too too hot!

Looked down on by MN, but holiday villages by TUI are perfect for what you need. They are very brits abroad but hands down they have the biggest kids club, entertainment schedule and activities for children. May limits it a bit as you do want warm and dry so holiday villages in Kos, Turkey, Rhodes or Cyprus (Tenerife but I'm not sure that is still a hv) Also sounds like you are going on your own and it's the sort of resort where you don't feel lonely and there is lots for you to do with your grand daughter and on your own. Lots of reps, excursions and excellent hotels.
