    Hi I have  one three year old Son.  My wife passed away recently


    Interested in bringing my Son somewhere Sunny warm, will be traveliing a little outside high season, avoiding June  , July and Aug


    Will be flying, to either Canaries, Spain, Portugal, France, Italy etc

    Would prefer a hotel, but am flexible on this

    I have noticed that we are priced as two adults, in hotels

    Would prefer somewhere,  which prices for one Adult , and a child discount , ie 50% off for kids

    Some hotels offer free child places for two adults , which is not applicable to me

    Sorry to hear of your loss.

    Have you thought of self catering,?

    Torquay and Cornwall are nice places to go to and lots of child friendly activities to do. Monkey world is a lovely place to visit  in Dorset

    Take care and hope you sort something out for the holidays

    Again sorry to hear of your loss. Someone on another thread mentioned air bnb, I think some of those are per room as opposed to per guest, and may be a nice break from the normal hotels etc.

    Yes sorry forgot to.mention air BnB !.it’s a very good idea and  we use frequently when we visit Denia  In spain for the holidays  . The beaches are clean and it’s very family orientated but an.hour from.valencia

    I regularly use AirBnB and as a single mum it works out the cheapest each time. You can sometimes arrange an airport transfer with the host and save ££’s too. Also, by getting a small apartment or room with en-suite in a family home you have great local knowledge and guides for you and your little one (as well as adult company for you and friends for your son).

    We like to go to the south of France/north Spain as it’s not too hot for my little one to enjoy herself, has lovely beaches and there’s plenty for all ages to do.


    Have a a wonderful time.

    Thanks Folks, some very useful advice there

    We have in the past flown to Carcasonne , usual price for return from Dublin to Carcasonne just outside the peak months would be less than 100euro

    In Sept, still beach weather , about 28 degreess

    On Oct usually , beach weather , sometimes not

    In May  still beach weather ,


    A car hire, would be needed to travel from airport to the coast, 60 – 90mins


    Air Bnb about 60e per night, eating out costs, v reasonable
