Italy Family Holidays

There is no denying the Italians love children. Welcomed in restaurants, accepted in hotels and cherished within the family – for a short haul family holiday it offers an incredibly family friendly environment with endless choice of regions and hotels.

Bring alive the history of Florence, Rome and Venice, stay in small family run farms to run wild and help with the olive harvest or catch fish on the endless beaches of Puglia.

Featured Family Properties in Italy

Introduce the children to the history of Rome and enjoy Teddy Turndown Service, child-size bathrobes, a children's menu and rubber ducks in the bath.

Stylish and elegant, this lakeside retreat offers a wonderfully welcoming atmosphere for both adults and children. Relax by the pool and indulge in pizza. 

The dedicated kid's club Verduland offers activities tailored to all ages from babies to teens and there is even a specialist kids menu called VerduDine. 

Three of the pools have lifeguards, under 3's stay for free in a cot and the kid's clubs are just fabulous with activities ranging from pottery to kite surfing and treasure hunts.

Advice from Our Family Experts

“Organise sightseeing in the mornings – hit the pool in the afternoons and stay away from the tourist restaurants surrounding the main squares. The real gems are tucked away in the side streets. Where available travel by train – fast, efficient and cheap.
