Summer 2021: 7 & 14 night family breaks from London Gatwick
Paleros Beach Resort, Greece
Designed with a modern, stylish feel, the fully renewed Paleros Beach Resort was welcomed back to the Mark Warner programme last summer to excellent reviews. Nestling in a bay backed by olive grove clad mountains and washed by the dazzling Ionian Sea, it’s perfect for action and exploration as well as relaxing. The hotel is situated 30 minutes’ walk, or a gentle bike ride, from the small village of Paleros, where guests can visit quaint seafront bars and traditional Greek taverns. Families will love the spacious family pool, while the adult pool has a more tranquil vibe. Set amidst flower-filled gardens with lovingly tended lawns, the attractive accommodation features a choice of 130 contemporary rooms to suit all party sizes.
FANTASTIC FOR WATERSPORTS
The calm water makes perfect conditions for waterskiing and wakeboarding. Guests can also take out a stand up paddle board or kayak. The rowing boats are an energetic way to get out on the water. Our friendly, expert waterfront instructors are on hand throughout the week of your sun holiday running free windsurfing and sailing classes: the light breezes are great for both beginners and improvers. There is also a PADI Scuba Diving Centre, for those who would like to discover the magic of the coastline underwater.
Guests enjoy half board dining including daily buffet breakfast and evening meals included every day of the holiday. Local ingredients and traditional Greek influences are key to buffet lunches and dinners in the main restaurant. Fresh and vibrant salads, grilled meats, fish, baked goods, tempting pastries and desserts are all on the menu. There is the option to upgrade to full board to include lunch for one fixed cost, or lunch can be bought on a day-by-day basis if more flexibility if preferred.
Little ones will love the spacious and colourful childcare centre, filled with a great assortment of games and toys. The childcare and waterfront teams can help them to learn to sail and windsurf while ensuring they can enjoy plenty of pool time too. Families can make the most of the array of activities on offer and enjoy quality time together.
