Why opt for a camping holiday?
I love the idea of taking my kids on camping holidays in Spain. There are so many reasons why I think it is just the perfect kind of holiday and a perfect destination for a family holiday.
By camping holidays, I am not talking about tents and no electricity – that is not my idea of fun at all! I am talking of camps that have holiday homes and lodges and bungalows, which have swimming pools, tennis courts and restaurants, which will be sure to keep adults happy!
There’s also plenty of entertainment for the kids in the form of kids’ clubs, which makes it convenient for parents to have a couple of hours of free time together whilst your child enjoys playing with other kids.
These accommodation options work as great bases to explore from, or to just stay at and relax, where you can opt for self-catering if this fits in with your holiday plans better. No matter what age your kids are, there is a parc to suit them and meet their needs. It is a wonderful way to hang out with other people, where you can also be independent if you wish. These types of holidays are also often far less expensive than hotel or villa-based holidays, so you may find your budget stretches further too.
Why choose Spain?
Oh, Spain has so many benefits. It is absolutely one of my most favourite places to visit with my family. It is one of the sunniest countries in all of Europe, did you know? It has the most gorgeous coastline of luscious sandy beaches. Spain is also a country of beauty and contrast, from its little villages and orange groves to its spectacular history, there is always something to see and do. You’ll immediately get swept up and want to explore this gorgeous county full of culture and hidden treasures. It is also absolutely full of fantastic art from a huge range of eras, so there really is something for every taste.
Then, there’s the food. I adore Spanish food, from tapas to the paella, it is full of taste and colour. Spain also does very well at catering for the UK crowd (and fussy kids), who struggle with a less familiar cuisine.
Did I mention how close to the UK it is, too? When you get to Spain you still feel refreshed and ready to go rather than spending days recovering from a full day of flying. All these reasons mean that Spain is an awesome holiday destination for us based here in the UK.
