Relaxed Vacations with Children: Holiday Homes and Apartments Make It Possible!

The advantages of vacationing in a holiday home or holiday apartment make it easier for children to feel at home from the very outset.


#1: Space for Everyone

Unlike a hotel room, a holiday apartment or holiday home offers ample space. Children, parents, hiking and ski gear – and there’s even room for the grandparents.

Families benefit from separate bedrooms, living areas, and often an outdoor area like a garden or terrace. The additional rooms provide children with space to play and enough retreat options for each family member as needed.

#2: Privacy

In a holiday home, you enjoy your peace & quiet and can keep to yourselves, without having to worry about noise from neighbors or other hotel guests. That privacy can be particularly relaxing on a vacation with children after an active day with so many new impressions.

#3: Flexibility and Independence

Without those fixed schedules for meals or cleaning services, families are free to organize their personal daily routine. This means less stress and more opportunities to plan the vacation according to your own wishes.

#4: Fully Equipped Kitchens

Children have their own wants and needs when it comes to food – even on vacation. Searching for kid-friendly dishes can sometimes be a challenge in unfamiliar places, especially with food allergies or intolerances. You don't have to be (quite so) picky about good manners (compared to restaurants with touchy table neighbors) when enjoying a cozy family meal inside your own holiday apartment.


#5: Cost Savings

For stays with several people or for a longer period of time, a holiday apartment or holiday home can be a significantly cheaper option for a family vacation than a hotel room. You also save costs since you have the option of cooking for yourself. You only pay for what you actually use.

#6: Safety and Control

In times of increased health consciousness, holiday homes and holiday apartments offer families an environment where social contacts and cleanliness can be better monitored.
