It usually starts with a conversation in the pub or round at a family gathering. Something along the lines of: "Wouldn’t it be lovely if we could all go away together as one big group? Everybody’s kids playing, splashing about, having fun - and the mums and dads enjoying plenty of time, space and freedom to chill out, relax and have a proper catch up?"
Sounds wonderful... but then, more often than not, the big group idea loses steam and fizzles out as it’s hard to find a suitable venue for your dream en masse holiday. Hotels seldom have rooms you can book close enough to each other and the rooms they do have are pokey with insufficient space for the whole gang to relax in. They have restrictive meal times (no breakfasting in your 11.00am PJs!) and, for villas and apartments, they tend to be expensive, in remote locations, and requiring a pair of hire cars for even popping down to the local shop.
But there is another way. A way you may never have considered - one which ticks all the big group boxes: bags of space, close proximity to a series of brilliant attractions (including the beach and fantastic, crazy-whirly-chute pools), home comforts, dog-friendly mobile homes (new for 2017 - check availability!), and dazzling sunshine.
And here it is: the Al Fresco mobile home. "A home from home", like the 3-bedroom Verdi, which sleeps up to eight in bright, fresh, and airy five-star comfort.
With generous 40m2 of floor space, a light, cool, air-conditioned dining area, plus a trendy, modern kitchen with oven, hob and microwave, fridge freezer and dishwasher. And, so everyone can get ready to go out on time, you’ll benefit from two bathrooms (one en-suite). Outside, you’ll find 21m2 decking and veranda, complete with soft, lounge-about furniture, canopy and lighting so you can chat until the wee small hours in sumptuous style, perhaps over a barbecued burger or two. It's the perfect way, in fact, to plan next-day excursions – not that it should take much planning as you're only ever a stone’s throw away from something inspiring, so there are no complicated meeting points to arrange.
"What about getting to and from?" Well, if you’re arriving at different times, for example, that’s no problem. We offer you complete flexibility for you to travel when you want and stay as long as you want. Simply call the award-winning reservations team and make your arrangements. Most parks are within easy reach of the airport, too, so if you’ve got tiny toddlers, there are no long, weary transfers to deal with.
"Bet it costs a fortune!" Now, here's the biggest surprise. When you book two or more mobile homes together for over seven nights, you can save up to 50%. So if you’re thinking about booking a friends ‘n’ family jaunt, it’s well worth taking the mobile home route, where a big group holiday needn’t cost a fortune.
