Bushbaby Travel: Inspiring travel for life
Castillo Son Vida

European Hideaway, Friends & Family

For the perfect long-weekend away with family and friends in Europe, we can recommend some fabulous private villas in stunning locations which offer that elusive mix of top notch accommodation, luxury hotel facilities, charming eateries and plenty of culture alongside that all essential ingredient of the perfect family beach.

Castillo Son Vida

One of our favourite places to head for is the pretty island of Mallorca. From the medieval magnificence of Palma's Old Town, up the hairpin bends that take you to the lush interior, to the bustling quayside at Port de Soller and powder sands of Formentor, this island offers something for everyone. The towns and villages of the interior have clung to their traditions and make a great day trip if you are staying on the coast - mountain-biking and hiking are just some of the options for families with older children.

Our top tip is to stay in a private villa such as the one at historic Castillo son Vida. Enjoy privacy and as much or as little independence as you wish, in this 4 bedroom villa with living areas, a kitchen for private catering and pool. Enjoy hotel luxuries such as spa treatments, delectable dining and superb golf. Parents in search of some restorative time out, will no doubt also appreciate the nearby children’s club sure to appeal to little ones with the many activities on offer.
