Ideas for Family Holidays in Spain My Baba 27 April, 2015 Living, Travel It’s always nerve wracking going on holiday somewhere new with the family. I always like to have a personal recommendation, and one of our most trusted sources is Smith & Family. The boutique-hotel experts have spent many happy holidays en famille in glorious Spain. We asked one of their travel-planning specialists, Hannah Orchard, for her favourite Spanish settings for memorable stays with little ‘uns in tow… BarcelÃ³ la Bobadilla, Andalucia Palatial BarcelÃ³ la Bobadilla is a white-washed rural retreat on a sprawling 350-acre estate, so there’s plenty of space for exuberant young guests to run around… or try falconry, horse riding, quad biking or more. Lively kids will be in heaven! And the grown ups will love the decadent hydrotherapy spa, vast fountain-clad pool and beautiful Moorish architecture, as well as the incredible La Finca restaurant, serving up creative twists on Andalucian and Mediterranean cuisine. Doubles from £144 per night, including breakfast Puente Romano Beach Resort, Marbella A luxurious beachside hotel on the golden coast of Andalucia, Puento Romano is a top spot to soak up the sun while the children tire themselves out at the tennis courts, equestrian club or the hotel’s three swimming pools. There’s also no shortage of dining options (there are eight restaurants, and kiddos are welcome at them all), a fantastic kids club and a chilled-out spa, offering organic beauty treatments, pilates and yoga. If you’re after a holiday hub you don’t need to leave, this is it. Doubles from £252 per night ParaÃso de los Pinos, Formentera On the tiny Balearic island of Formentera, ParaÃso de los Pinos is a laid-back boutique bolthole with tip-top family-holiday credentials: I love the pretty whitewashed walls and sea-blue shutters, and the stylish self-contained apartments are perfect for families with younger children. There’s also a glorious beach moments from your door, two swimming pools, a Jacuzzi and bikes available to explore the surrounding island. And don’t be fooled by the restaurant’s casual setting: the dining here is incredible and definitely not to be missed. Doubles from £143 per night, including breakfast Smith & Family gives you the best price, guaranteed, as well as a little something extra on arrival.
