Half-term holidays

For a burst of sunshine and a real change of scene, treat the family to a luxury half-term break in one of our family-friendly villas or Simpson Hotels. Offering convenient weekend departures and an award-winning portfolio of properties with private pools and child-friendly extras in Greece, Turkey, Mallorca, Italy and France, we’ll help you find your perfect home-from-home.

Corfu is a kaleidoscope of colour as spring blossoms into summer, while its pint-sized neighbour Paxos is a quieter haven, ideal for families with studious teenagers preparing for exams. The Caribbean-esque beaches of Corsica are just a short flight away, or travel a little further and be rewarded by a glorious cocktail of culture, cuisine and spectacular coastline around Kalkan in southern Turkey. Whichever you choose, a Simpson family holiday promises half-term heaven for children young and old.
