When children are babies and up to, let’s say, twelve years old, they will follow you everywhere. Or rather, they must follow you unless they want to stay home alone or stay with grandma (also a great option, lots of the times!).

But then…then camps and school trips start (no school visits their local historic sites anymore. They all fly your kids to faraway and exotic destinations? What’s wrong with a day trip to Stonehenge?). Then friends come along and you are no longer cool.

For parents with teenage kids hoping to look interesting and modern in their eyes, I have prepared for  you a shortlist of amazing family villas with even more amazing amenities that your kids will love. You are suddenly cool mum and dad again.
