Having children cannot be by any means, the reason for giving up traveling around the world. There happen to be some trips designed so that both adults and children can enjoy their leisure time. The same goes for accommodation. Our ideal of a family trip overseas would be in Italy, in Sicily: think about those family villas in Sicily, for instance, it could be the kind of luxury that lets you explore the Italian beauty with the comfort of a family-designed accommodation.
Why is Sicily our go-to family vacation?
The reasons are infinite. But first of all, a trip to Sicily with a family will allow you to enjoy the beautiful beaches of the region: from Scopello to San Vito lo Capo and Cefalù. Here, you can also walk under the shadow of the head-shaped Rocca (Cephaloedium), which gives the name to the city or photograph the Temple of Diana. You can also visit the city of Syracuse and its old town, where you will be taught how to use papyrus. Or contemplate the imposing Etna Volcano and visit the wild craters at 1800 meters of altitude. In the city of Noto, famous for its baroque style, you can enjoy a great show of Sicilian puppets and in Modica taste one of the most exquisite and most famous chocolate in the world. But the other reason why Sicily has that added value for families is the possibility to find many and many things and activities to do with kids so that you can balance the right amount of attractions, beaches and fun ideas for kids! An example? The Adventure Madonie park, a natural park for explorers and adventurous kids! Or Etnaland that embraces an aquatic archaeological site, a theme park, and a prehistoric park. Everywhere you will go, you will find something for your kids. In any case, it is always advisable to have everything ready so that the holidays turn out to be as you think. Here are the fundamental steps to achieve it.
Family vacations, get organized!
Make a list of preferences. Under no circumstances should one’s wishes be subordinated to the rest, but it is good to keep all family members in mind and try to find a place that meets all the requirements. For this, nothing better than to make a list of what you want to do on vacation and make everyone (even the little ones) agree to it.
Mark a budget
Once you are clear about the type of site you want to go to, it is also important to value the money that you can spend on the vacations. A good idea not to give up a dream vacation is to try to plan them ahead of time so you can find unique promotions and discounts. Also, if you can avoid those dates of more significant tourist agglomerations, the price to pay will always be lower, no matter where you go.
Accommodation: a family villa
Hotel nights in a small room for two, no longer make much sense. If it’s a couple of days, it’s not that much of a problem, but for the holidays as such, it can only make conflicts and tensions arise. Depending on the age of the children, they will require their own space, and they must have it so that adults can also rest and enjoy. This is the reason why family villas fit in perfectly.
Activities together: parks, games, and fun!
There are always things you can do together and, at the same time, discover a little bit of the destination. Although everyone should have their own space, those moments together are essential and will make family relationships closer in an environment far from routine, which always involves a certain degree of stress.
Prepare all the papers you may need. It is vital to take a look at all the documentation that may be required before the chosen date is too close to avoid unpleasant surprises.
Last but not least: the whims
For both parents and children, they are necessary, and that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to spend a lot of money. Sometimes all it takes is a little imagination and a little extra expense from time to time. After all, that’s what you’ve been working for the rest of the year.
