Seville, Valencia, Bilbao: three perfect options for families

In ‘Destinations for Families’ we are very much people who see the bottle half full and that leads us to think about the destination of our next holiday. Yes, in January, the Christmas holidays have just finished and with the thermometer practically below zero throughout the country, it’s a month that is perfect for planning our next trip, either in Easter, in the May Bank holiday or even in the Summer. The reason for this is that there are more deals, there are no problems when booking our hotel and we can go with more time to research the destination thoroughly.

And speaking of destinations: are you sure that your holidays are always with the family and have you doubts about which are the family friendly destinations? At this beginning of the year we propose three: Seville, Valencia and Bilbao.

Discover Seville with the family

With its smell of orange blossom, its moaning, its elf and its character, Seville is an ideal place for a family holiday. It’s a city with a strategic location (one hour from Cadiz, two from Cordoba and one from the beautiful beaches of Huelva) full of unique plans to do with the children.

Some examples are: strolling through the Cartuja, heading to the Isla Mágica Park to practice water sports in the Guadalquivir or enjoying a day of shopping in the Calles Sierpes and Tetuán. If you have chosen to stay in a hotel in the center of the capital like the Petit Palace Canalejas Seville you will be less than ten minutes from the most outstanding parts of the city.

Valencia, much more than just the Fallas festival

We have said it countless times and we never tire of repeating it: Valencia is much more than just paella, the Fallas festival and beautiful beaches. Although all these aspects are a reality and should not be forgotten, the capital of the Turia is a gem of a destination. And the city is full of lovely places for families (such as the Gulliver Park or the Turia Gardens) and the city of Arts and Sciences.

A city that lives from within and has perfect hotels for families like the legendary and charming Petit Palace Bristol Hotel.

Bilbao, an unknown family destination

Few cities in our country can boast of being as pretty as Bilbao (although yes, in our country we have destinations that are worthy of review). Industrial, cosmopolitan and with gourmet food that is world famous, Bilbao is a great place to spend a short family vacation.

Although a lot of people choose to stay in the city, you can give a unique touch to your trip by choosing a hotel on the beach such as in Ereaga, or Getxo? There you will find hotels for families full of services and extras like the hotel Petit Palace Tamarises.

Learn to cook, a perfect plan for a family vacation

Few things are as rewarding and endearing as enjoying a family trip. We have said it on countless occasions but it is more than true. Of course, if you choose this type of holiday you need to be aware that with regard to leisure not everything works well and you need original things to do (and especially very amusing activities) which can be the key to the success or failure of the trip itself.

Knowing that this is so and wanting to offer the customer something different, our hotels in this area have been able to masterfully adapt in order to corner the market in traveling families yet offer something more. They have taken family oriented holidays a step further by creating leisure facilities for children, courses designed for children, mini parks and even cooking courses.

If you have read a lot you will know that there are hotels that offer cooking courses to their clients and following in the footsteps of the ever increasing cooking fever which has arisen from television programs like Master Chef or Master Chef Junior, we’ve discovered that cooking is fun, not only fun but highly educational. So this is a great idea for families and you can find it in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, specifically in the heart of the IBEROSTAR Grand Hotel Mencey.

Beyond its privileged location, which can be seen from the images in its brochures, the gourmet quality of its restaurants (such as the Papa Negra restaurant) and its many services, the IBEROSTAR Grand Hotel Mencey offers the cookery courses of La Cocina del Mencey, a place to learn unique recipes and advanced cooking techniques from the hand of true chefs.

The concept created by the Tenerife Hotel is not only to offer practical cooking courses (for adults and children) but to be committed to using local products and everyday cuisine, which is prepared with care, without hurry and slowly cooked. A unique cuisine that can be enjoyed to the full in its different restaurants (such as Papa Negra or Casa del Duque Lounge & Bar)

A plus to keep in mind for future occasions is the possibility of being able to rent the room so you can hold business meetings. Wouldn’t that be a great idea?
