With so many cultures so close together, Europe has plenty of variety for Family Bookers. Plus, you won’t have to break the bank to visit these wallet-friendly destinations for families in Europe.
Bulgarian beach getaway
Constant sunshine and gentle waves along the Black Sea coastline
Bulgaria has been a trending destination thanks to being both affordable and family-friendly. It offers a wide range of international accommodations and cuisines catering to a diverse crowd, but isn’t totally overrun by tourists. Most Family Bookers head to the Black Sea, which promises constant sun and a gentle surf that’s safe for young children. Obzor is a small seaside town that’s particularly family-friendly, offering fresh seafood, pristine beaches, and easy access to Bulgaria’s remote countryside. Tonus Guest House is a short walk from the town’s beautiful beach.
Farm vacations in Menorca
Farms and pools in rural Menorca
Agroturismo Matxani Gran in rural Menorca is as beautifully rustic as it is wallet-friendly. Its sun-drenched, white-washed terrace is ideal for breakfast, before spending the day alongside the swimming pool or exploring the property’s expansive grounds inhabited by a flock of sheep and two donkeys. Though a bit more low-key, you’ll quickly feel right at home thanks to the kitchen and barbecue where you can cook meals for the whole family.
Hiking trips in the Lake District
The Lake District is a natural playground
The Lake District covers hundreds of square miles in northwestern England. It’s home to the country’s biggest national park, tallest mountain, Scafell Pike, and largest body of water, Lake Windermere. Family Bookers can hike along valleys, mountains, streams, and arched bridges, then climb up stone walls for elevated viewing points to take in the region’s natural beauty. There’s a network of climbing huts throughout the Lake District that are both warm and inviting, as well as practical for longer hiking or mountain biking trips. On a hill overlooking Windermere, Lake House in Ambleside is the ideal place to use as a base camp.
A home-away-from-home in Malta
Exotic yet affordable vacations with Maltan apartment rentals
Not only is Malta one of Europe’s most affordable countries, it’s also rich with cultural and natural beauty, great for both sightseeing and beach time. Having passed through the hands of the Roman Empire, North African Moors, and European crusaders (among others), this Mediterranean archipelago continues to bear witness to various ruling powers. The architecture and language are reminiscent of the Middle East, while the landscape and climate are similar to its neighbor, Sicily. Stay in historic Valletta at 10 Strait Street, an apartment with vaulted ceilings in an old stone building.
Go camping in Brittany
Natural beauty and excellent campgrounds galore
Brittany is renowned for being one of the most naturally beautiful regions in France. On top of being popular for camping, it's home to hundreds of pristine beaches with safe waves, surrounded by a pastoral landscape full of fields, winding rivers, and medieval towns. Family Bookers should be sure to visit the cone-shaped island of Mont-Saint-Michel, topped by a huge abbey that's often cloaked by mist and connected to the mainland by a tidal causeway. Check in to Camping Saint Michel, an eco-friendly campground with a heated swimming pool and a playground for kids, that’s just an 11-minute drive from Mont-Saint-Michel.
