A family summer holiday in a popular destination doesn’t have to cost the Earth. Here are 10 great options, from futuristic domes in Spain and a cabin in the south of France, to campervan road trip fun and a farm in the Tirol
All prices are for peak season
It’s rare to come across good-value family accommodation in Tuscany in peak season, so Fattoria Santa Vittoria is quite a find. The 18th-century, ivy-clad farmhouse is split into five apartments so your children are likely to find playmates but the pool will never get too busy. Classic Tuscan views of vines and, more importantly, the award-winning wine produced on the estate, will keep the adults happy, not to mention the location between the idyllic cities of Siena, Arezzo and Cortona.
