CELEBRATE EASTER SPANISH STYLE >

CELEBRATE EASTER IN THE SPANISH STYLE WITH ABERCROMBIE & KENT  Two weeks after the religious festival of Santa Semana (Easter), the area of Los Remedios in the southwest of Seville comes awash with vibrant celebrations and frivolities as the Andalucian residents fill the streets with flamenco, toros, sherry and laughter. Originating as a cattle-raising fair, the annual celebrations of La Feria, or The April Fair, is one of Seville's most important festivals and includes a daily parade of elaborately-decorated horse drawn carriages, row upon row of casetas (marquee tents), dazzling firework displays and daily bullfights at the Plaza de la Maestranza.

AUSTRALIA HAS THE ROYAL SEAL OF APPROVAL >

Quintessentail Australia  If it's good enough for the Royals… Prince William, Kate and George paid a visit to Australia this time last year (and stayed at Longitude 131°). While their seal of approval is undoubtedly a draw, we think Easter is a good time to visit due to comfortable temperatures, vibrant landscapes and great opportunities for viewing wildlife.

Botswana ENJOYS THE START OF THE DRY SEASON - AND THERE'S NO TIME DIFFERENCE >

luxury-lodge-botswana-BainesCamp  Visit Botswana at the start of the dry season for an Easter holiday break that takes in lush green landscapes, clear skies and prime wildlife viewing opportunities. Kids will love the chance to view lion, giraffe, elephant and leopard, and because there's only an hour's time difference there's no jet lag, so your holiday can start immediately. 

Dubai IS THE PERFECT KIDS playground >

 uae_dubai_atlantis Dubai is always a safe bet for a family getaway, thanks to its multitude of cheerfully brash waterparks, malls and cultural centres: it's practically a playground. Atlantis, The Palm is undoubtedly one of the most child-friendly hotels in the city, with free entry into Aquaventure Water Park and a fabulous location

CRUISE THE NILE AND EXPERIENCE EGYPT WITHOUT THE CROWDS >

Classic-Nile  Travellers are returning to Egypt in their droves, but the main sites are still relatively free of crowds. Offering amazing value for money and the ease of full board accommodation, the stylish Sanctuary Sun Boats that cruise the Nile are the ideal way to visit Egypt with minimal hassle. With A&K's brilliant team of guides and Egyptologists on the ground to look after you every step of the way, you'll be entertained and educated in safety and style.

The French Riviera is glam yet uncrowded >

St-Jean-Du-Cap-Ferrat_Royal-Riviera  The French Riviera needs no introduction, but allow us to let you in on our little secret along the coast. The Royal Riviera has its own beach, and due to the ban on motorised vessels around the Cap, it's a peaceful stay on the busy coast. What's more, the outdoor pool is open and heated all year round.

Rome is a living history lesson >

Italy_Tuscany_Rome_Palazzo_Manfredi  Built on the site of a former gladiator barracks, Palazzo Manfredi oozes history, with the Colosseum right outside your door providing a spectacular night display. Visit in the Easter break and you can take the kids to the Leonardo da Vinci Machines Exhibition, celebrating the universal genius of the inventor at the historic Palazzo della Cancelleria.

IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE MALDIVES - FOR LESS >

villingili  Located on one of the larger Maldivian Islands offering much more than just the obligatory sun, sea and sand, Shangri-La Villingili features a fantastic children's area with an abundance of activities. Travel over the Easter break and you'll find blue skies, agreeable temperatures and a sea like warm bath, with just a smattering of tropical rainfall thrown in to freshen things up.

CYCLING through Vietnam IS THE IDEAL WAY TO TIRE ACTIVE KIDS >

Vietnam Cycling Tour  Burn off some energy and experience the cultural side of Vietnam on a unique two-wheeled adventure. Rolling through the narrow highways of Hanoi to the diverse metropolis of Ho Chi Minh City, kids will love the charming street scenes and beautiful blue skies as they cycle just like a local. Travel over the Easter break and you'll find the best weather, consistent for almost all parts of the country

CAPE TOWN OFFERS A COOL YET EDUCATIONAL BREAK >

Take to the Cape  - One-Only-Cape-Town  Located in the heart of the Mother City, the One&Only Cape Town is the perfect base from which to explore the sights of the city with little ones in tow, such as Boulders Beach and Camps Bay. The sheer amount of sights to explore, from Table Mountain to Robben Island, means you'd barely need to leave the city to enjoy a fun-packed and educational stay.

CHILE IS THE PERFECT DESTINATION FOR ACTIVE FAMILIES >

Chile, Patagonia  Chile may not be the first destination that springs to mind when planning an Easter holiday, but stick with us. The country is brimming with exciting experiences that keep inquisitive minds occupied. Learn how to become a gaucho, make unique chocolate treats or participate in a traditional harvest in the Casablanca Valley, hand-picking grapes to be used for the next vintage's premium wines (parents can sample these later). In the south of the country experienced guides can lead family-friendly hikes, and Torres del Paine plays host to a wide array of sporting events.

THAILAND IS MORE Family-friendly ThaN YOU THINK >

Family Elephants & Emeralds  Uniquely warm and welcoming and jam-packed with exciting cities and idyllic islands, Thailand is a surprisingly family friendly destination thanks to a wealth of educational experiences (Thai cooking lessons, bamboo rafting, diving) and animal encounters (learning to become an elephant mahout is our favourite). In recent years Koh Samui has hit the luxury market and is no longer the first choice for roaming backpackers, but rather families looking for a multitude of leisure experiences in one place.

CATTLE DRIVES AND STARRY SKIES IN MONTANA >

CATTLE DRIVES AND STARRY SKIES IN MONTANA Spend your Easter on the Montana 'prairie, where the coyotes howl and the wind blows free.' Ride with the cowboys at the Paws Up Family Ranch as they round up their cattle or go out fishing for your dinner that night under the stars. Chuck wagon rides, star gazing, shooting, canoeing, or hiking, you may be a little saddle sore after all your adventures, but your luxurious safari tent or cabin will provide you with plenty of peace and space to unwind.

Portugal is packed with deserted beaches >

Vila-Vita-Parc-Portugal-Ariel  Portugal's year round temperate climate makes it an ideal destination at any time, but travel in early spring and you'll find deserted beaches and masses of room in the gardens for kid's playtime. The Vila Vita Parc is a fantastic family hotel, offering a 5* experience for children and parents alike! A year round kids club, an onsite 9 and 18 hole putting green, mini golf, volley ball court and a multitude of water sports are just some of the offerings that will keep the entire family entertained.
