This year I have gone slightly long on the holiday front so I don’t think we’re going to go anywhere this October half term, but for families who are looking for somewhere to go, I have just the place. Incidentally, it’s also the perfect spot for families who are lucky enough to be able to travel outside of school holidays, getting some late summer sun. This is it….
Pretty stunning huh?
It is a new cluster of holiday properties in Andalucía, Spain from Peekaboo client www.totstotravel.co.uk. Called Casitas del Lago it consists of 10 traditional Andalucían-style cottages in a small, well maintained cluster, cleverly designed so each feels private, yet it is easy to make friends with other families around the shared enclosed pool or while enjoying the extensive facilities.
The rural one and two bedroom properties offer stunning views over lake, sea and mountains, yet are only 25 minutes from the beach resort of Torre del Mar, popular with locals rather than tourists. On-site, the cluster features a large shared pool, mini golf, a swing park and games hut with table football and ping pong. Plus it is a two minute walk to the on-site restaurant, renowned for its magnificent views and home-cooked local food, including take-aways and kids menu. Each property has an outside patio and BBQ area and all are fully equipped with all the kit young families need, from cots and highchairs, to stairgates and potties.
The properties offer flexible arrival dates, with 10/11 night holidays available, to take advantage of midweek flights. Three and four night breaks are also available in low season. One bedroom properties start from £490 per week and two bedroom properties start from £720. The properties are approximately one hour’s drive from Malaga airport.
Go to www.totstotravel.co.uk for more information or to book online. And if you’re not familiar with Tots to Travel, they provide everything you need for babies and young children in their holiday properties – plus they’re personally visited and vetted by mums to double check safety and suitability.
So my top tip is to book now or weep into your cornflakes when you can’t get a spot!
