Planning a family holiday can be stressful. Everyone has different interests and it can be difficult for children to be taken away from their usual schedules. The key to success is to keep your days packed with fun things and make sure that everyone gets a good night’s sleep. Here are 5 destinations for the perfect stress free family holiday.
Bali is a stunning island in Indonesia and it is a great place to rent a villa for the family and explore the area. The area is known for stunning coral reefs that are great for snorkelling or scuba diving. There are also plenty of beautiful white sand beaches to relax on. Head into the forested mountain and spend the day hiking. If you are interested in your health and wellness, then you’ll be delighted to find a vast array of fresh fruit and vegetables on offer here. This is the perfect way to introduce your children to new flavours. Here are the 10 things we love about Bali.
The UK Seaside
Exploring the UK Seaside is a great way to spend a stress free family vacation. The UK is generally very safe, which means you don’t have to constantly be on alert. The seas are free from poisonous creatures, and there are plenty of attractions to keep children entertained.
The more popular seaside destinations are in the south of the country, where the weather is better, however there are also plenty of stunning beaches and lovely seaside towns in the North too. Wherever you decide to go, as long as you book in advance, you’ll have a variety of beautiful child-friendly accommodation to choose from. Alternatively, you could rent a campervan and park up in caravan sites, this is particularly fun for older children, as it gives them an opportunity to make new friends with other children on the caravan site.
Brittany is a region in the north western part of France that is a great place for a family vacation.

Make sure that your route takes you through Dinan and Quimper so that you can view the stunning cathedrals in these towns. The area also has several seaside resorts that are a great place to relax after you have been cycling for a few days.
You can fly directly to Gran Canaria from London Heathrow airport, and one of the best ways to have a stress free holiday is to ensure that you organise your airport parking in advance, which also helps to keep costs down.
