Catalonia, a paradise for families



We present a guaranteed family destination: Catalonia. If you're travelling with children, on this part of the Mediterranean coast you'll find tourist destinations offering specially adapted leisure facilities and services. These are certified with the DTF (Family Tourism Destination) mark. Would you like discover them?

Did you know that 60 per cent of tourists visiting Catalonia are families who come from all over Europe? For this reason, this region in northeast Spain has launched a pioneering programme to create a family quality mark. If you're planning a holiday with your children, then take note because you're sure to find this interesting.

This mark distinguishes the destinations offering a series of services and facilities expressly designed to meet the needs of people travelling with children. This means that you can be sure to find specially prepared accommodation, restaurants and leisure and entertainment services. You'll discover, for example, that there are crèches on the beaches, as well as staffed parks and kids' clubs on the promenades. The hotels have babysitters who speak foreign languages, along with entertainment programmes for the little ones; the restaurants have play areas and children's menus. Other criteria taken into account are the signposting of potential dangers, availability of high chairs and baby chairs, and easy-to-access information throughout the municipal area.

And it goes without saying that there are also a host of fun activities, In these places the enjoyment of a wide variety of leisure and entertainment options is indispensable. In the town itself or very close by you'll find shows and festivals for children, theme parks, water parks, countryside areas for excursions and outdoor activities, and locations for learning and practising water sports. You can sit back and relax because there is a full range of services and offices at your disposal to provide you with information on all the activities you can do with your family.
