Whats hot



This is really a great option for a May or September break.  As all parents know the flight is half the battle – a bad one and you can be in a foul mode for the rest of the holiday!  The BA flights to and from Gatwick are at pretty reasonable times and if you overnight at the Gatwick Sofitel before you fly then you can just wander straight through and into the departure lounge.  Another top hint here is to use their car parking. 

This means that when you return your car is parked next to the terminal and you don’t have a ¾ hour trip to the long stay with your tired cherub screaming in your ear.  On the return leg the flights are at 17.25 so you can get a full morning by the pool before heading home and you are back in the UK by 20.00.  Cyprus itself is a lovely island with good beaches (although shingle rather than sand) and some great hotels.  We stayed at both the Anassa and the Almyra which were both just perfect for families.
