Soft white sand and clear warm seas make the Maldives the idea beach location. And with direct flights it is very easy to get to.

Whats hot


Barcelona for children?

Just back from an incredibly relaxing weekend away without the children!  Lie-ins, long lunches and plenty of shopping – bliss.  We left the youngsters behind this time so we could have a break but we have always thought that cities and small children don’t mix.

After all, if you want to do some serious shopping and even a bit of culture they are only going to slow you down and more importantly get very bored.  However Barcelona changed our minds – so long as you can find them something to do then you can scoot off shopping whilst your husband looks after them!  It’s a nice bonding time for him. 

The W hotel in Barcelona (coming to this website soon) seems like the perfect option, it is right on the beach but only a short walk away from the centre of the city and the beautiful Gothic Quarter with its boutiques and wonderful Tapas restaurants.   Sand castles and watching boats for the children (and their Daddy) and shopping for you.
