Whilst every Al Fresco park is a wonderful entertainment centre in its own right, each featuring magnificent pools, eateries and nearby attractions just a flip-flop stride away, they are almost all within a reasonable drive/bus/train-ride to sights and sounds of a mystical, ‘metropolitan style’. In other words, you might well find yourself an hour or so away from the joys of Paris, or half an hour away from the brilliance of Barcelona, or Verona, or Rome, or Florence...the list goes on. Now city centre bustle might not be to everybody’s taste; but these fabulous European centres have so much more to offer than high prices and noise. They feature truly remarkable architecture, art, cuisine, customs and colour of a kind that simply cannot be found elsewhere on earth. In essence, they leave an indelible mark on every traveller’s mind. Small wonder that such cities entice repeat visit after repeat visit. Thing is, you always feel you’ve missed something. And you will miss something indeed if you don’t dodge the park pool for the day and immerse your family in the magic...

When the rigours of holiday parc pleasure begin to take their toll, what better way to unwind and take a ‘time out’ than a lazy hour or two in the Wellness Spa? Here, the roomy indoor pool features invigorating spray fountains together with separate whirlpool booths where you can kick back and let the bubbling jets do their healing work. Also in the complex you will find a hammam (Turkish bath), sauna, family-sized Jacuzzi cabin and a massage suite, where expert hands can pummel and caress stressed muscles back into well-toned shape.

Holidays are all about getting away from it all, escaping the routine, basking in sunnier climes...and plunging into clear water pools for hour upon hour of frenzied, splash-tastic fun! Of course most of our holiday parks have pools. But there are pools and there are pools – and some truly stand out for their sheer scale, variety and ‘Wow! factor’. These are our favourites, which we believe deserve special mention. Not just for their size, but for their multiple water thrill options – slides, whirly chutes, gentle dinghy rivers, wave effects and more. We’ve also included some nearby alternatives, should the gang want a change of scene (or pace). These ‘pro-style’ waterparks all offer huge and colourful diversions and hair-raising, pulse-racing excitement.
