Let us take you on this inspiring journey and discover new pages of well-known holiday resorts and real insider tips.

Hondarribia-Irun - Holiday season is travel season - Engel & Völkers shows you four beautiful destinations in Europe for the perfect family vacation and every type of travel.

The classic one: Majorca, Spain

For decades, the Majorcan island has been one of Europe's most popular tourist destinations. No wonder: after all, Majorca captivates its visitors with its Mediterranean climate and a wide range of recreational activities. For families who prefer to live centrally, the luxurious district of Son Vida in Palma is recommended. Located on a hill a few minutes by car from the airport, the district offers golf enthusiasts the opportunity to play on Majorca's oldest golf course. Fans of water sports can also enjoy windsurfing, water skiing or diving on the beach of Palma. Families who prefer to enjoy their holidays in nature should consider the municipality of Artà in the north-east of the island when planning their holidays. Amidst traditional Majorcan architecture and surrounded by olive groves, it is particularly easy to get away from it all. Whatever you decide: Far away from mass tourism, a family trip to Majorca promises to be as relaxing as it is eventful.

The insider tip: Gozo, Malta

Gozo is half an hour by ferry from the main island of Malta. The second largest island of the archipelago is famous for its turquoise blue lagoon, especially among swimmers and amateur divers. Locals call their island the “green island”, because compared to Malta, Gozo has a distinct vegetation especially in the spring months. Despite all its beauty, the island has hardly been developed for tourism so far. This offers visitors a good opportunity to discover a Mediterranean jewel for snorkeling, diving and hiking. Besides the breathtaking natural scenery, the ruins of ancient temples are the main attraction of Gozo. These date back to a time before the Egyptian pyramids and are protected today as a world cultural heritage - an absolute must for trackers and culture lovers. The rich history, down-to-earth inhabitants and untouched nature make the small island of Gozo a refuge for those seeking peace and quiet as well as young adventurers.

The world of experience: Rhodes, Greece

Byzantine architecture, crystal clear waters and glittering sandy beaches - that all is Rhodes. Besides its picturesque bays, Rhodes is world-famous for its acropolis, which still bears witness to Greece's millennia-old culture. In contrast, the Dodecanese island offers modern leisure time facilities to its visitors: Adults can look forward to a vibrant nightlife with numerous exquisite clubs and bars, such as the Flaws. Younger holidaymakers won’t miss out the Faliraki Water Park with its giant slides and an artificial river for inflatable boat trips. There is no place where history and modernity meet as excitingly as on Rhodes.

The exclusive: Côte d'Azur, France

When it comes to the Côte d'Azur, most people inevitably have famous cities such as Cannes and St. Tropez, marinas and enchanting promenades in sight. And for good reason: the French Mediterranean coast impresses with elegant cities, a modern and exclusive lifestyle and over 300 sunny days a year. Here you will be in the best circles for your family vacation and have countless opportunities to make your holiday on the French Riviera an unforgettable experience. From water parks and amusement parks to high ropes courses and safari zoos, the Côte d'Azur offers first-class ingredients for the perfect family trip.

With such dreamlike destinations it would be almost too good to visit the destinations only once a year. For those who do not want to deal with the holiday feeling any more, a holiday real estate can be a serious alternative to a hotel. In addition, the purchase of a second home in these sought-after locations is a worthwhile investment opportunity.
