Holiday in Spain with children

Family holiday in Spain

Going on holiday with the whole family is the best thing there is! Enjoying your children while they are playing in the pool with holiday friends. But that does not happen automatically, especially if you have high expectations for your holiday. So every year it is quite a job to choose a beautiful and suitable destination and holiday accommodation where the whole family will experience an unforgettable holiday. Fortunately, there are plenty of accommodations that offer a child-friendly holiday! Think of Northern Spain as a destination for your next family holiday: certainty of good weather, easy to reach by plane.

A family vacation, fun for young and old

A family vacation requires fun things that meet the needs of both young and 'old'. After all, if your children are having fun, you are having a good time yourself. But also think about yourself and what you want to do on vacation. There must be a good balance, as the holiday is not only about your kids, but you also get to relax and enjoy yourself! Have all members of the family create a wish list of what they want to do on vacation. Then find out the destination and the type of holiday that suits everyone. In any case, opt for a child-friendly holiday accommodation and one with a swimming pool, which is definitely on everyone's list. A family holiday in Spain will be all fun!

On vacation with teenagers

Teenagers especially want contact with peers. Parents and younger siblings are not nearly as interesting as boyfriends and girlfriends. So you can consider bringing a boyfriend or girlfriend. When your kids are a little older, it will be easier to make plans that everyone can relate to. Compromise with your teens. Agree that you will, for example, visit a city or museum in the morning and do something they enjoy in the afternoon.

On vacation with babies, toddlers and preschoolers

Then choose a small-scale and child-friendly holiday home, where it is clear and safe. It is also an advantage to choose a residence for Dutch or Belgian owners. They can assist you in your own language if necessary.

With babies or young children, the holiday is more devoted to the little ones, and your options are a bit more limited. But even then there is still a good balance to be found in what occupies your child (s) and what you like yourself. And when they are in bed, there is still plenty for you to enjoy!

If you go on holiday with babies, toddlers or preschoolers, you also need to bring everything with you. Beter is that everything is available on site. For example, cot, a baby bath, changing mat, a high chair, a separate inflatable pool so that they can splash under your watchful eye and close to you. But also that there is an opportunity to have laundry done on the spot, so that you do not have to bring clothes with you for the entire period. That saves a lot of baggage!


A family vacation is the best there is, especially if you consciously think about how everyone is having a good time before and during the holiday. Good preparation and especially finding the right vacation spot guarantees that you really relax and come home with 'charged batteries' afterwards.

Child-friendly, small-scale luxury holiday resort in Spain

In Catalonia in Northern Spain you will find Torre Nova Resort, run by the Dutch owners Jacqueline and Geert. It is located in the green and undiscovered "Tuscany of Catalonia", 45 minutes from Barcelona, ​​30 minutes from the Costa Dorada and close to the magical mountain of Montserrat and the wine region of El Penedès.

It is child-friendly, has beautiful and luxurious apartments, a large swimming pool and playground. Torre Nova Resort is a 19th century estate with eight spacious and luxurious holiday apartments. The interiors are stylish and contemporary. They are fully equipped, offering maximum comfort and privacy and breathtaking views. Here you can enjoy the Mediterranean garden and the spacious swimming pool with your family.

Enjoying a family holiday in Spain is guaranteed

Everything is available for the little ones, such as a cot, baby bath, changing mat, high chairs, etc. They can also do laundry for you, so you don't have to bring clothes for the entire holiday. There is also an inflatable baby pool, which you can place next to your lounger by the pool so that your child can splash safely. There are also toys and even children's books.

For toddlers and pre-schoolers they have cots and high chairs and of course there is the swimming pool (15 x 5 meters). The stairs are the favorite spot of the kids, who can play there wonderfully. The depth of the pool ranges from 80 cm to 160 cm, so that the older children can stand in the beginning. There is also a playground with a swing, seesaw and a playhouse.

The slightly older children and teenagers are enjoying the pool all day long (I said so .. no bomb ..;). When they are tired of the pool, there is a ping-pong table, a jeu de boule court, a chess and drafts table, children's books, board games, etc.

In the village are several restaurants. A 1-minute walk from Torre Nova is the Aquí Mismo restaurant. Ideal for eating out with children, because you can eat there early (usually from 9 pm in Spain ..) and they have a ball pit! Children are always welcome in all restaurants, because in Spain it is very common to eat out with children.

Torre Nova Resort, winner of 7 consecutive Zoover Gold Awards, is therefore the perfect base for a family holiday in Spain. As 'locals', Jacqueline and Geert provide you with all the inside tips about the tourist highlights in your own language, but also with the 'insider' tips for activities with children, so that you get to places and experience things that you would otherwise never would have found yourself.

  • We have just enjoyed a great week in a Beautiful villa in a small welcoming village. It has a great location to visiting Montserrat, Igualada, Tarragona, Poblet and other interesting small villages in between. The facilities are first class and we enjoyed both eating out and cooking in a well equipped kitchen, relaxing by the pool and joining in the local festivals. Our hosts were welcoming and the information about the area helpful.

  • We have spent 2 weeks at Torre Nova and enjoyed every day of it. Our appartment had an amazing view out of huge windows over the country side which was like a 3D movie which we could enjoy every day. The appartment was ideal for us and our two girls as each room had its own bathroom and its own big balcony. The old house has been renovated with style and it was a pleasure to come back to it after each excursion. The owners are very friendly and helpfull.
