- Kos Family holidays
family holidays to Kos combine the old with the new, as you explore the history and heritage of one of the largest islands in the Dodecanese group with all of the home comforts you would expect from a destination where tourism is a crucial driver of the local economy. That means hotels and resorts that are perfectly placed to cater for British visitors, and you should find this is the case in everything from the food on the hotel menu, to the availability of English-speaking staff when you need advice.
History under foot
You often hear people refer to 'treading in the footprints' of generations gone by, but cheap family holidays on Kos let you do this even more literally. Excavations and archaeological explorations in the past have found a vast marketplace with mosaic floors, reaching some 300 metres from the city walls to what was the main transport route of the time. As you explore the island on your own adventures, and particularly if you visit the modern markets on the hunt of the perfect souvenir of your trip, imagine the people who have met on the island to trade in their own goods down the centuries.
Mild in the Med
The Mediterranean climate makes family holidays in Kos a firm crowd-pleaser, with hot and sunny summer weather and mild winters that offer a break from the cold of the UK. Slightly cooler springtime weather makes Kos a good option for an Easter holiday too, with the bonus of being a little more comfortable for very young travellers who might not normally like to be out and about in direct sunlight during the hottest part of the year.
Fun for the family
Cheap family holidays toKos are part of an important local economy as mentioned above - and that means the resorts and hotels do all they can to appeal to British holidaymakers as a great holiday destination. Especially during the peak periods of the year, and in the school holidays, you have a strong chance of finding activities laid on to keep your children entertained, and while some of these may involve parents too, you might be able to leave your kids in the care of the hotel staff, giving you some time to enjoy the tranquillity of the island without them around.
