Headwater has launched a selection of holidays designed to appeal to multi-generational families – including new French and Spanish itineraries in 2018.

The specialist tour operator offers both single centre and hotel-to-hotel holidays to its new destinations plus Austria and Gozo, part of the Maltese archipelago.

Next summer, families wanting to mix beach visits with gentle activities can stay in the Spanish village of Calella de Palafrugell.

Holidays to Calella de Palafrugell depart from April 14 and October 13 and cost £849 per person.

This price includes seven nights’ B&B hotel accommodation, three evening meals, high quality bikes and 24/7 support from the Headwater rep, but excludes travel.

Headwater will offer two new French centres in the medieval walled town in Dinan and Hotel Meysset in Sarlat in 2018.

From May 19 to September 15, families can explore Dinan’s pretty riverfront port, restored squares, 13th century castle and Gothic basilica.

Prices lead in at £889 per person for seven nights’ B&B hotel accommodation, bikes and 24/7 support from the Headwater rep.

Flights, rail and self drive travel can be arranged on request.

Holidays to Sarlat, Dordogne, leave from May 12 to September 22, costing £1,099 per person, excluding travel.

The price includes seven nights’ half board hotel accommodation, bikes, GPS navigation system and 24/7 support from the Headwater rep.

There is also an eight-night hotel-to-hotel holiday available in the Dordogne which combines the walking, cycling and canoeing routes Headwater offers.
