I love the idea of self catering when you go on holiday
We are a family of vegetarians and often find when we are catered for we wind up eating again as it just isn’t right for us. Self catering gives you flexibility and choice. The food you buy you know you will eat. You can also eat when you feel like it which is very useful with kids sometimes they are having so much fun in the pool or on the beach they just don’t want to go back for dinner and holidays are for relaxing routines and have to’s aren’t they.
When you go abroad I think it is great fun to self cater, sitting on a balcony in the sunshine or on the beach, browsing new supermarkets and trying local specialities. It’s lovely to have a little kitchen and a place to store water and snacks particularly with little ones.
I have just been looking at some amazing European holiday parc holidays with Thompson Al Fresco
At May half term for under £300. you could have a week in Spain on a brilliant parc and there would be sunshine too! How lovely does that sound? It isn’t camping, it is far more than that . They have spacious, air-conditioned, 2 or 3 bedroomed mobile homes which have its own decking and outdoor space. Inside there’s a modern kitchen, so perfect for my self catering in the sun idyll. You pay for the mobile home, one price per family. Do you know I think that sounds brilliant…. you would probably pay the same for a UK caravan.
Included in the price are kids clubs of all ages so you would all get a break from each other too and the kids will get to meet new friends and have new experiences. They even cater for babies and provide all the baby stuff you need without you having to take it. This is always a bonus you don’t want to have to take ALL that endless baby stuff with you.
Self catering holidays in the sun are right for us as a family and a good budget option as you can decide how much to spend and keep costs low.
Yes a lovely meal on a veranda under the sun at the end of the day with happy, tired contented children that’s what I am wanting …and wanting soon!
are fab offers all over Europe for the summer too. Sounds great fun!
