Family experiences that will last with your kids for a very long time, whether they involve skiing in Switzerland or training with professional footballers on an Italian island. We’ve put up a few ideas to get you ready for your next family trip.
Ski lessons in Switzerland
Planning your first ski trip as a family? Villars, Switzerland, is a great place to start. The local ski school is a favorite among young beginners and offers lessons to those three years of age and older. Children can sign up for one-on-one sessions, courses that include lunch and pre-school activities, or stand-alone ski instruction. Villars boasts two designated snow gardens, allowing your kids to train in a secure setting. Additionally, there is a nursery slope right in the middle of the village that is accessible without a lift pass. Villars boasts more than 100km of slopes where skiers who are already proficient can perfect their abilities. A favorite choice for families is the Chalet Royal Hotel & Spa.
While kids are kept busy with the free children’s activity program, teens can hang out in the gaming room. A swimming pool and a private theater are also available for relaxing family movie nights.

Children as young as eight or nine years old are welcome to test out the tiny diving equipment and have a slow introduction just below the surface to a maximum depth of two meters. Anyone over 10 can actually work for a junior diving certification, and if you’re new to diving, you can learn with them. You might soon be swimming next to clownfish and turtles.
Treasure hunts, nature hikes, and mini discos are all available at the kids’ club, and you can enjoy a spectacular family movie night on the beach beneath the stars. Choose a two-bedroom beach house and you can wake up to breathtaking views of the lagoon and walk right out onto the sand. It can accommodate up to four adults and two children.

Life in Mauritius
Younger children will enjoy themselves at Sugar Beach in Mauritius.

Crepe-making and crab-hunting are just a couple of the exciting activities available throughout the day, and after dark, there are disco nights, movies, and marshmallow toasting by the campfire. Treat yourself to a relaxing spa treatment while the kids are occupied or sneak away for a date night at the brand-new Buddha Bar Beach, the ideal location for sunset cocktails.
