Single parent luxury

Cathy's verdict
Finding a holiday to suit both kids and adults isn’t always easy, particularly as a solo parent – but with sun and snow breaks, some grown-up luxury and child-friendly activities, plus other solo parents to meet and time as a family, you’re all guaranteed to have a fabulous time.

Single Parents on Holiday says

We offer a wide range of summer sun and ski holidays for single parents looking for a dose of luxury as well as a fun, child-friendly break.

  • Italy farm stays
  • luxury beach hotels
  • activity holidays in Austria

Travelling with us means that you can be sure there will be other kids and single parents around. All our holidays are group holidays exclusively for single parents and their children and all are hosted by one of our experienced team members who will be on hand throughout to arrange airport transfers, make introductions, arrange tables for dinner and organise any activities and excursions which the kids (and parents) might want to enjoy.

Our luxury hotel-based summer holiday destinations for 2020 include the Canary Islands, Greece, Croatia, Montenegro, Cyprus, Italy and Austria.

Our August holiday in Crete, for example, is based at the all-inclusive four-star Iberostar Creta Panorama & Mare. There are excellent clubs for ages four to teens, a playground, tennis courts, fitness room and spa. The hotel lays on low-key, family-friendly entertainment in the evenings too.

The superior four star Gartenhotel Crystal in Austria’s famous Ziller Valley is a great option for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers. It is set in a huge garden offering wonderful views of the Alps and the holiday includes a fun and action-packed five-day activity programme for all ages.

It may not be a four-star hotel but how about joining other single parent families on a beautiful working farm in Italy? For example, Gelindo dei Magredi is set in the foothills of the Italian Dolomites and is a delightful summer playground for kids and adults alike.

Our ski holidays for single parents are based in luxurious four-star hotels with excellent family facilities in the Austrian resorts of Obertauern, Mayrhofen and Kitzbühel (and Schladming for a kids-free holiday). Each offers superb skiing and classes for all levels of ability.

At the ski-in, ski-out Hotel Steiner in Obertauern, for example, you’ll find a gorgeous indoor pool and spa, with a section for families, as well as a play room, teen chill-out zone and child minder. Special evening activities such as floodlit tobogganing are also arranged by our hosts in all the resorts.

If you fancy travelling without the children, check out our choice of solo holidays.
