Taking the family on holiday does not mean having to skimp on luxury!
The Olympic Holidays' team has chosen hotels where children and multi-generational families are their main focus. In the Mediterranean, family is all-important so expect a genuine warmth and hospitality. Here families can eat out late and children are welcome so everyone can feel relaxed.
Parents who would like an occasional romantic meal will find there are babysitting services and clubs for children and teenagers, while during the day there are professionally run sports clubs and activities for all the family to enjoy together. Some spas also accommodate over-12s for those who want to experience some grown-up pampering!
For multi-generational families there is a huge choice of accommodation and dining options giving everyone the freedom to relax and enjoy the perfect holiday.
A nanny service on the beach is one of the luxuries for parents who want to take a dive into the sea or perhaps treat themselves to a quiet lunch. Swimming and cycling lessons give children plenty of new experiences within the beach resort which is part of a 1,000-acre ecological reserve on the Kassandra peninsula. Sani’s 215-berth private marina lies at its heart, with a horseshoe of bustling restaurants, bars and boutiques for you to enjoy.
With five lagoon-style pools and a myriad of sports and water sports facilities the Olympic Lagoon Resort has much to keep the whole family occupied and lively evening entertainment adds to the appeal. Choose from six restaurants or wander in to town for shops, bars, restaurants and tavernas.
Everyone's talking about the new Cretan restaurant where breakfasts are going down a storm. An 9/10 rating for service and facilities from the Telegraph Travel also makes Avra Imperial worth so much more than a glance! On the outskirts of Chania, next to a Blue Flag beach, the hotel has a large glass-sided pool and a salt water pool plus a lovely spa with sauna, hammam, sauna and indoor pool.
This luxurious retreat for families features a children's club and splash pool with slides and water jets, a private beach and an exquisite spa. In the evenings, the underground music venue stages live shows, karaoke and dancing. If that's not enough, chose from water sports, mountain biking Zumba and pottery classes.
With golf courses inspired by former Ryder Cup star Bernhard Langer and designer Robert Trent Jones Jnr and boasting awards for both family holidays and golfing breaks, Costa Navarino takes some beating. There's a one-kilometre sandy beach, children have their own clubs and an aquapark while the Anazoe Spa offers a range of revitalising therapies for adults.
An Aquapark with eight water slides from gigantic to wild and gentler rides, the kids will love Gloria Serenity. If they are not in pool find them at the well-organised Kids' Clubs or Gogi Fun Jungle! For golfers in the family there are two 18-hole and a nine-hole course to cater for all levels.
