We are big fans of the multi-generational holiday, when the whole family goes away together. It's a great time to reconnect, enjoy some time together and give the grandparents some quality time with the little ones. And perhaps give the parents a little downtime too.
The main ingredients are obviously, enough bedrooms , but also plenty of space so that everybody is not on top of each other. Good gathering spaces are needed too - a large kitchen dining room, or even an outside kitchen or barbecue, with a large table under a shaded pergola for al-fresco eating.
Having a restaurant or village nearby is a further advantage - it's great to be able to take the little ones off for an ice-cream without having to pile into the car. It's also nice to be walk to your evening meal and not worry about getting home if you had one glass too many.
Of course, all these houses also come with the possibility of having catered meals, chefs, cooking courses and more - so there's plenty to do.
We've seen a big rise in these kind of holidays in the recent years and have a selection of large family villas that suit this kind of family gathering.
