Families are Always Welcome

The general atmosphere of these Mediterranean islands is one where family always comes first. Babies and toddlers are particularly welcomed in public places like restaurants – it’s generally a much more inclusive culture.

Additionally, if you have children that struggle with different or foreign food, it won’t be a problem as there are always child-friendly or UK-style food options in most restaurants and hotel buffets.
