European summer holidays A COLLECTION OF OUR FINEST EUROPEAN SUMMER HOLIDAYS


This year I am delighted to introduce two new properties to our villa portfolio in Mallorca and Portugal, as well as two new Scott Dunn children’s clubs in Greece and Cyprus. These both perfectly complement the fully staffed villas we already feature, and give families looking to escape to the sun an even wider choice of holiday style and destination. This brochure brings you up to date on all our villas, and showcases those hotels in our portfolio that feature either a Scott Dunn children’s club or an OurSpace children’s club. You can find out about other family hotels on our website, or just call one of our travel specialists for a chat. They will be sure to create the perfect holiday for you

Andrew Dunn


In this brochure you will find a collection of our finest European summer holidays, including private, fully staffed villas in some of the best resorts in Mallorca and Portugal. In addition, we tell you more about the luxurious hotels we offer that feature either an exclusive Scott Dunn children’s club, or an OurSpace children’s club.

Luxurious, fully catered villas From sprawling country houses close to the beach, to rustic farmhouses nestled amongst rolling hills, our villa guests in Mallorca and Portugal experience luxury all the way. Each property is beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable, with a stunning private pool. Your family will be looked after by a private chef and fully qualified nanny/activity specialist, and at larger villas, a host is on hand too.

Hotels with children’s clubs For those who prefer the options a hotel provides, our portfolio includes a selection of family properties that feature either an exclusive Scott Dunn children’s club run by us for our guests, or an OurSpace children’s club, designed by us and run by the hotel itself. Whatever you choose, both you and your children will have a fabulous holiday.

our villas

Eat Al fresco breakfast in the morning sun, freshly prepared lunch in the shade and delicious gourmet dining after sunset. Your chef will create a bespoke menu for your family and your attentive host will take care of everything else

Swim A private pool is pure heaven, and every villa has one. Splash about, cool off or, if you like, we can even arrange for a swimming instructor to provide lessons for your children.


Dotted across the north of Mallorca and along Portugal’s western coast, our luxury villas provide a unique ‘home from home’ experience. Fully staffed, your villa has a personal chef and nanny/activity specialist, as well as the luxury of a gorgeous private pool.

Play

Each villa has a playroom full of toys and games as well as all the essential baby equipment. A UK-qualified private nanny will make sure your little ones have a fabulous time or, for older children, an activity specialist can keep them entertained

Relax With a family to take care of, you might have forgotten what it’s like to really have the pressure taken off. Here, you don’t have to lift a finger. Pick up a book and soak up the sun. Find out more about each villa at www.scottdunn.com/med
