Summer is my favourite time of year and when we have our best adventures as a family, but the sunshine is a unreliable in this country and there is always the distraction of daily life. I'm not sure if it's the very long, cold winter we've had, but this year more than ever I am craving a holiday abroad and I would really love to take our girls on a search for the sun.
SardiniaI have always wanted to visit Sardinia, sandy beaches, crystal clear sea, Italian food and the epitome of the laid back Mediterranean I'm currently craving. Mark Warner's Perdepera Beach Resort ticks so many boxes on my family holiday wish list - it's perfectly located to explore the island, offering what looks like a serene setting to relax and unwind in and just enjoy the moment. There is a beach just a few steps away, shaded gardens for the girls to play in and a pool to cool off in. I love the look of the little villas that make up the resort which offer family rooms and interconnecting rooms - perfect for a family of five like us. There are plenty of activities to keep everyone busy and the option of children's clubs too and the flight time is under 3hrs which having never flown with all three girls before definitely appeals!
GreeceI spent many a summer in Greece as a child and have such fond memories of it. The whitewashed buildings, blue seas and olive groves of Mark Warner's Levante Beach Resort in Rhodes look absolutely incredible. If I close my eyes I can imagine warm, breezy nights eating Tzatziki and Souvlaki in a taverna, with the sound of the sea in the background - bliss! There's plenty to wear the girls out too including six swimming pools, access to a beach, and a play area and watersports for us all to try.
TurkeyOli and I went on our first holiday together to Turkey and I'd love to go back one day with the girls. Mark Warner are adding a brand new resort to their collection in Turkey this year and it looks perfect for soaking up the sunshine. The Phokaia Beach Resort is situated in it's own little bay, nestled amongst the hills. It looks like somewhere you could really escape to, with amazing facilities and I think that's what sets Mark Warner apart for me. Their resorts are luxurious, yet relaxed and all about enjoying moments and making memories - it seems that the only difficult thing about a Mark Warner holiday is choosing where to go!
