Holiday for very active child

I've been looking into Euro Disney but would welcome other ideas too.

My youngest is always on the go - we also suspect ADHD - so any holidays we have need to be quite structured with all-day activities. It's not enough to do half day activities and half day chilling out as we'd be climbing the walls by teatime.

I really want a holiday this year - ideally abroad as we've not been for so long - but most things I see are pool-based (with kids clubs in the morning) which just isn't enough for us.

Can anyone recommend holidays/resorts that have plenty of activities available (or within easy reach) - that don't cost the earth?

TIA

Not sure what age you're talking about but Neilson holidays have loads of activities, or something like Simply Morzine which are Alpine based where you can book to do loads of activities like mountain biking and canyoning.

If you are keen on something like Disney this Turkish Hotel has a water park and small theme park on site, shuttle to sister hotel with private beach, all day kids club with activities including cooking classes, and free games arcade for guests.

Family friend had 2 very "energetic" kids and she swore by Mark Warner holidays. She only saw the kids in the evening when they were worn out!

Came on here to say Mark Warner
The childcare was excellent. Full timetable of activities depending on age. Mine did windsurfing, water skiing, sailing mixed in with beach and pool games and loved it. Also, games or films in the evenings.

Thanks - some good ideas here!

Last time I looked Neilson and Mark Warner were out of our budget range unfortunately (pity as they look great). He's aged 6/7 and can't yet ride a bike confidently due to balance issues, although that doesn't stop him throwing himself into everything else! He also can't swim (despite learning for 2-3 years) so water sports need to accommodate that.

How about Acorn holidays? I’ve never actually used them myself but they look good. Suitable for 7+ in Europe and 5+ in the UK according to their website

Neilsons is amazing but the kids really need to be able to swim and be confident in water to get the most out of kids club.

PGL family activity holidays - I think they have one not far from Disneyland Paris so you could combine the two.

Look at TUI magic life. Sports all day kids club all day ... all inclusive, several pools and on beach. Was pretty reasonable (ok in terms time). We did archery, aerobics, tango, swam in the sea and pools, tennis, darts (and we are adults though have a bit hyper tendency). Entertainment was ok too, kids can join in for added exercise
