So we reserved 12 days at a site in Catalonia not far from Spain’s capital staying in one particular of the static caravans with 3 bedrooms and a shower. Everything looked pretty on a wooded hillside searching over a beach & the sea.
I booked the flight tickets with EasyJet, almost simultaneously, traveling from Luton to Barcelona. Then I reserved a hire car through the Easyjet web-site. While this was convenient subsequent research showed I could have got a much better deal.
Among these three elements, in the height of the season, the expense was beginning to add up. It would undoubtedly exceed late availability deals from most of the main operators for some thing equivalent staying at 3 star self-catering holiday accommodation, but just pipped the full sales brochure prices.
The purpose we chose it was to make sure there would be a lot of families & children, and organized activities for them to join in when they required extra entertainment. I appreciate some individuals would avoid it like the plague for precisely the same reasons.
The cost of a tent was fairly a bit cheaper than the fixed caravan, but then you are into shared wash rooms & the trips to & fro with small children was not heading to be entertained! However as each plot comes with a table & chairs and a bar-b-que you can simply keep the bill for eating out & drinks very reasonable. Even as soon as the kids went to bed it was extremely pleasant just to sit outside sipping wine.

The flight tickets with Easyjet were as expected. The young children were well behaved and occupied with the small rucksacks loaded full of stuff that we brought for the duration.
