Luxury for single parents

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.

Recommended tour operator: Single Parents on Holiday

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 stay
  • five-star beach hotels
  • ski 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 who is on hand throughout to make introductions, organise any activities and excursions which the kids (and parents) might want to enjoy and host tables for our single parents at mealtimes.

Our luxury hotel-based summer holiday destinations include Lanzarote, Crete, Kos, Sardinia, Umbria, Croatia and Austria.

Our August holiday in Lanzarote, for example, is based at the all-inclusive five-star Iberostar Lanzarote Park. There are excellent clubs from ages four to teens plus soft play areas for toddlers. Water sports are available on the beach (extra charge) and there’s a water park nearby. The hotel lays on low-key, family-friendly entertainment in the evenings too.

The five-star Alexander Beach Hotel in Crete is a popular option, with a lovely sandy beach, water sports, spa, kids activities and a games room for teenagers. Arrangements here are half-board.

It may not be a five-star hotel but how about joining other single parent families on a beautiful working farm in Italy? Gelindo dei Magredi is set in the foothills of the 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 and Mayrhofen (and Kitzbühel 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.
