I decided to start this feature ‘Your Family Holidays’ not only because I’m nosy, but because I, like others, like to take inspiration from where other people have been. I also like to find out where people really want to go i.e what their aspirational family holiday is?
My best family holiday so far, and I’m typing this on a coach on the way to the Alps so that may change!?! Was our trip to Mousses, Lefkas last year. The place really is practically perfect. So perfect that we have in fact booked to go back in June this year. 12 villas around a pool with an on-site restaurant, that will deliver food to your villa. Qualified nannies to run the small but perfectly formed crèche and the stunning Lefkas Town a very short distance away. What more could you want!
My aspirational holiday was skiing, and I can’t quite believe I am on my way to do just that now courtesy of my now favourite holiday company of all time, Mark Warner. So I need to add another aspirational trip. I actually want to add two, this if the first feature so why not!
Safari in Africa – probably Namibia or South Africa. Both hubby and I love Africa. Hubby has Africa in his bones as he spent the first five years of his life there. I just love it. We have both done safaris and know how special they are, so we want to pass that love of the Orange dust onto our kids. The thought of the flight does put me off, but it really would be worth it.
Disneyland Florida – My three girls love Disney in all ways. They love princesses and queens and talking animals. It would be incredible to see the look on their faces it we actually went to a land where they could meet their favourite characters and eat breakfast with Anna and Elsa. I really want to do this before they grow up. I know I want to try and do Disney with them a few times over the years (want want want I know) but would love to start this now when they have so much enthusiasm for adventure.
So that’s my favourite and aspirational holidays? Would you like to tell us about yours? If so do get in touch and we can host yours.
