With its endless miles of sun-drenched beaches, fascinating historical cities, towns and villages, and friendly, welcoming people, Spain has for decades been a favourite destination for British tourists looking for family-friendly holidays. It's ideal for toddler and baby friendly holidays too with short journey times, warm, balmy weather, gently shelving Mediterranean beaches and day to day convenience.
5 Reasons to Choose Spain for your Family Holiday:
Where is the Best Place in Spain to go for a Family Holiday?
We’ve found that British families with young children are most keen on good weather and staying near coastal areas, while others prefer the hills further inland for an authentic rural Spanish experience and a very relaxed holiday.
That is why the majority of our Spanish toddler and baby friendly holiday villas are situated in Andalucia (the Southern region of Spain) along the Costa del Sol with glitzy Marbella and Malaga being the focus points, and further east up the Costa Blanca coast to Alicante and surrounds.
How to find the best baby and toddler villas and apartments in Spain?
Holidaying in an unfamiliar villa or apartment can be pretty hard work if someone hasn’t given your holiday a great deal of thought first, which is where Tots To Travel comes in. To give you total peace of mind, we have personally inspected and ‘curated’ a collection of the very best family friendly Spanish holiday destinations. The result is that we know and trust all our hosts really well and we know which holiday homes suit which families and are here to help. Give us a shout with your family’s holiday requirements and we’ll put together a bespoke shortlist of options.
