Are beach days the highlight of your family holiday? Imagine having golden sands just a short stroll away. Our villas by the beach are ideal for family frolics on the sand and splashing about in the sea. Heaven for any beach babies. Beach sports like volleyball are perfect for some leisurely family fun. Or perhaps the thrill of watersports will prove too much to resist?

An incredible family holiday starts with finding the right villa. One that can be enjoyed by all ages, especially your private pool. A gated pool will give you the reassurance that your children are always safe. When you're able to give them your full attention, let them splash around. But if you're busy preparing dinner in your villa's kitchen, shut the gate and keep them safe.

A huge spacious private pool will make splash-tastic family time a sure thing. Not to mention a large garden area for the little ones to safely run around in. Primed for 'hide and seek', Villa Casa de Baixo is a match made in heaven for funny family games and children's play time.
If the kids are too cool for a full day of table top games, there's a Playstation 4 for some down time – plus parents might welcome the break too. When everyone is truly tuckered out, why not curl up with a DVD and Satellite TV from the comfort of your lounge? A cosy family night in might be just what the doctor ordered after all that fun in the sun!
Psstttt… Are you travelling with a baby? Meal times are a good night's sleep are all made easier, as Casa de Baixo comes with free cots and highchairs.
You'll get the best of both worlds in a Holiday Resort - the freedom of villa living with all the facilities you'd expect from a hotel. Luckily for your children this means double the fun!

Plus you'll find lots more to do in the Desert Springs Holiday Resort itself, with a playground, kids' club and sports facilities on your doorstep.
Your children will have plenty of space to call their own in Villa La Finca. They'll even find their own little playground! With a slide, swings and outdoor games, they'll fall in love with this fantastic villa.

Villa Buddha is seventh heaven for children of all ages. Your little ones will find two bedrooms decorated with them in mind, with sun and clouds painted on the nursery ceiling and bunk beds and bright colours in the other bedroom. Perhaps it won't be so hard to persuade them to go to bed! Especially as you have everything you need here to wear them out. Younger kids' faces will light up as they spot their very own play area - swings and a climbing frame that they won't have to share.
Older kids are taken care of too. Your private pool even comes with a volleyball net, so why not cool off and indulge in a friendly game at the same time? As if that's not enough, there's a pool table, table tennis and table football waiting for you.
Malitta Mansion will have your family feeling like they never want to leave! After all, who would want to give up a 13 seat private cinema? And which child would willingly leave a playroom with a full size slide? Young children are really taken care of in this Luxury villa, with little touches that will spark their imagination. Their fantasies are brought to life in this child friendly villa, from a Disney castle themed playroom, to Peter Pan and Frozen bedrooms.
Older children and teenagers aren't forgotten. They'll have a games room, PlayStation 4 and Xbox all to themselves, so you might even get some peace and quiet!
Do your children find it difficult to sit still? If lying by the pool isn't quite their thing, Villa Monte Mare could be the perfect fit for your energetic youngsters!

But if you're in the mood for something more leisurely, the pool and table tennis tables will let you slow things down.
Head back inside and you'll find a games room on the first floor. Try your hand at air hockey, or sit back and relax in front of the TV. You'll have plenty to choose from - and the choice is all yours.
Budding young golfers will love Villa Lavande. They'll have a putting green to practice their technique, for hours on end if they want to. Perhaps you can take them to one of the nearby golf courses?

Travelling with very young children? Villa Lavande could be ideal. Set on a single floor, free cots and high chairs are included - it's the little things all taken care of.
