There’s magic in the air in every season! Got my winter boots back into the ‘winter closet’ and my mind is set for the summer. I’m even on a strict (not so strict) food allowance diet to fit in my freepeople swim suit that I got maybe 10 years ago! Yep, giving birth did change me alright! Anyway, let’s not get carried away with that now and let’s focus on some wonderful Spring Break Holidays with the Family and friends this year! Travel to all sorts of places with your kids! It teaches them so much. Make a point to squeeze in some time for that…not only that bikini you held on for 10 years! Here are Spring Break Holidays with the Family ideas.

3- Ascona, Switzerland Time for family – a short break with grandma and grandpa at the Hotel Eden Roc Ascona. As soon as the temperatures begin rising and the first of the sun’s rays light the new day, the spirits awaken and the little ones are bursting with energy and raring to go. All too often, however, we are tied down by our daily routine and there just isn’t enough time to do anything with the children. Nevertheless, grandparents often lend a helping hand. To let them enjoy a relaxing yet eventful time with their grandchildren, the Hotel Eden Roc in Ascona now offers the “Time for family” special. The offer includes two nights’ accommodation with breakfast and resort dine around as well as a free upgrade from a deluxe double room to a family suite. And while the grandparents relax in the 2,000 square metres of the Eden Roc Spa, a wide range of activities await the little ones including a scavenger hunt using mobile phones, balancing on the slackline, horse riding to the nearby Maggia River, a pirate day on the pirate ship, make-up and dancing lessons, the chance to become a director for the day and to shoot a short film about the holidays and much more besides. The offer is available from 740 Swiss francs (approx. 690 euros) per adult and is free for children up to the age of three.
