This year we were the first time in Cyprus. This greek island has the big advantage that is is located so far south and east that the weather is still very warm there in October.
In Switzerland the kids have three weeks holiday in October, so it is a very good time to make holidays then. In mid summer it is very warm in Greece, sometimes it has more than 40 degrees. With this heat, making holiday with kids is not so good. At early afternoon, you have to go to your hotel room and spend some hours in the cool chamber while it is the hotest time outside.
The hotel we had this year was very nice. We had very good animation also for the kids. The food was good, the appartment was nice, the beach wounderful. Everything ok. We will come back next year.
