Where to go for a family holiday

I want to go away mid-end of July for a holiday with my fiancee and our 3 year old daughter.

We need somewhere that has:

* Nice beaches
* Kids Clubs/Activities
* Some sort of outdoor activitiy for me whilst she lies on the beach and does fack all (ie. climbing, watersports..anything really)........who am I kidding, a well stocked bar will do!

Doesnt really matter where it is as long as its Europe and warm.

I would prefer to pay under £1k (any chance of free kids places?) and go for 1 week.

Any ideas would be gratefully appreciated.

I did see a link on her a while back from a guy asking a similar question but its gone now and I forgot where was suggested.

    Not in Europe, but for a nice change and everything else you've described why not try Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt?

    I haven't personally been to that part of Egypt but I know of people who have taken family hols there and spoken very highly of it.

    i've been diving in sharm (without my kids), and it's great if you're into that. and it's got some good hotels (i stayed four seasons, very good), though lots of quite tacky ones too. i'm not sure if i think of it as a particularly 'kidsy' place, though.

    the point about 'kids club' type holidays, i would say, is that what's important is the hotel, rather than where it is. as you've left it quite late, you'll prob just need to shop around and see what's available.

    I love diving but havent done it for ages.

    I think you're right about the hotel rather than the location.

    How long does it take to get there? - thinking about my daughter who is 3 getting air rage!!!

    Thanks for the suggestion Gina but really wanted somewhere abroad and scorchio.

    not that long to sharm. about 5 hours. don't remember the flight there at all, but it's just across the water from tel aviv, which is definitely 5ish.

    probably cope with that at 3. depend on the kid, really.

    I did a Eurocamp in the Vendee (SW France) a few years ago that ticks all the boxes you mentioned. Was called Sol A Gogo, but I never saw a gogo dancer the whole time I was there.

    Winners are just dreamers who didn't quit
