New to it all?
Al Fresco is such a popular choice for family holidays because we offer the great value you're looking for....with family friendly mobile homes on Europe's favourite holiday parks. Experience has taught us that Al Fresco customers want fun, freedom and flexibility from their holiday. You want to enjoy family time, with the chance for parents to relax whilst kids discover, make new friends and have great new experiences.
The best self catering mobile homes
Our mobile homes are modern, well-equipped and comfortable with a light, fresh decor and plenty of space for everyone.
If you've ever stayed in a hotel with the whole family crammed into one room, you'll appreciate having two or three bedrooms. There's plenty of space for everyone - not to mention a little more privacy. Outside, stretch out on your own decking and enjoy the peaceful natural surroundings over a few drinks and a barbecue with family or friends. This is outdoor living at its best with a fully fitted kitchen, proper beds and lashings of hot water. Air-conditioning is available on every unit on the Med and the Adriatic and is pre-bookable from £2 per day.
Mobile homes with luxe and lounge decking package
Look out for our mobile homes that offer that little extra outdoor comfort with our luxe and lounge decking upgrade. Offering everything from large outdoor decking area with seating area, full shade canopy and upgraded BBQ.
You'll only find us on Europe's favourite holiday parks, each specially selected for their mix of incredible pools, superb facilities, tasty eateries, impeccable organisation and, of course, wonderfully relaxed holiday atmosphere.
Park sizes vary hugely but all offer essentials like on-site shops, take-aways and laundry facilities. You'll find children's play areas and there's always a friendly bar for a morning cappuccino or evening ice-cream (or something a bit stronger). Plus there's controlled entry to ensure only fellow residents can enjoy the exclusive freedom of their park.
To help you choose the best park for your party, we've broken them down into four categories based on size: 'large and lively', 'midsize and sociable', 'small and friendly' and 'authentic and value'. Parks offer essentials like are action-packed with wild water parks, exciting evening shows, spectacular sports and events are particularly popular with families with turbo-charged kids. On a more chilled out note, many of our parks offer fitness and relaxation facilities like gyms and spas to indulge in a little well deserved pampering. We also offer small and friendly parks in stunning settings which offer a more laid back holiday scene for families with young children or couples wanting a relaxed base from which to explore.
If you're not sure what type of park will suit you best, you can filter the results on our holiday search facility or contact us for expert advice.
Location, location, location
Another key criteria for selecting our parks, is their location. You'll find us in some of the most beautiful settings in Europe, taking in beaches, countryside, mountains and lakes. Some parks are located in holiday resorts or bustling local towns, so you'll have amenities like shops, restaurants and nightlife close by. Other parks enjoy a more rural location, so you'll have loads of space and tranquillity.
Wherever your Al Fresco holiday takes you, you'll never be far from loads of things to do. You can explore thriving towns and villages packed full of gorgeous things to eat, drink and take home and treasure. Thrill-seekers will love theme parks and aqua parks packed full of rides and slides. There's lashings of local history and culture to lap up, or just enjoy the simple pleasure of a day at the seaside.
How to get there
Whichever park you choose, we've got loads of ways of getting you there.
Pack up your car with all your gear (including the kids' must have toys and favourite breakfast cereal if necessary) and take a quick hop across the Channel. Alternatively choose a longer ferry crossing where you can take a break and enjoy excellent onboard facilities like restaurants, entertainment and comfy cabins. Either way, you have the freedom to stop whenever you like and make getting there part of the adventure.
Some love the ease of jumping on a plane and hiring a car at the other end. Or if you prefer to let someone else do the driving when you arrive, there are plenty of parks where pre-bookable transfers are available or that are located close to public transport links. Because our holidays are totally flexible, you can arrive any day of the week, for any duration, which is great for making the most of low-cost flight options.
If you want to let the train take the strain, we can arrange your journey via Eurostar from London which connects with the fast and efficient TGV network in Paris or Lille. Direct Eurostar service from London to Avignon or Marseille, arrive in the South of France in under 6 and 1/2 hours.
We have travel options to suit all needs and budgets.
