accommodation Holiday Village Rhodes. The complex has lots of fun activities for kids and
relaxation opportunities for mums and dads.

Cyprus is another family favourite for low-cost holidays thanks to its Mediterranean
location and short flying times. Byzantine relics lie side-by-side with modern resorts,
rugged mountains and lively towns. Paphos is the ancient capital of the island and
visitors to the historic location rated the Avanti Village resort 19th best in Europe due
to its spacious apartments, beautiful grounds and close location to the harbour and sandy
