Best family deal:

Bring the kids to Croatia this summer and stay in the wonderful Villa Milica in Cavtat. We stayed here a few years ago and loved it. Cavtat is beautiful and you can take a ferry into Dubrovnik in the evening to catch the sunset. This is the best time to visit as there is less crowds – the cruise ships have sailed away! Price for flights, transfers and a seven-night stay in a spacious 2 bedroom apartment is  €588 per person based on 4 sharing, €546 based on 5 sharing or €530 based on 6 sharing. This is departing on the 25th of July but there are other dates available. Read all about my stay here.
