Multi Activity is all about packing in lots of different high-quality activities into your holiday to get the most out of each day.

A short break is the perfect compromise for families who can't spare 7 nights but still want to try a good selection of our fantastic multi activities.

We plan the programme for you to make the most of every moment and provide a mix that has something for everyone in your family no matter what their tastes, preferences or previous experiences.

We also provide a mixture of additional activities into the evening. These may include family quiz nights, karaoke evenings, treasure hunts, discos or a host of other fun ideas.
