With pandemic travel restrictions easing, you may be starting to think about your first holiday abroad in a long time. For many of us it’s been a few years since we were able to take a holiday abroad, so why not push the boat out in 2022 and book a child free holiday?

Looking for inspo? Here are five of the very best child free holidays that any couple will love!

5 of the Best Child Free Holidays 

The five best child free holidays include:

  1. French Riviera
  2. Rome
  3. Mauritius
  4. Barcelona 
  5. Krakow 

Let’s take a look at each in turn!

French Riviera 

How does a luxury yacht charter on the Cote D’Azur for just you and your other half sound to you? Too good to be true? Well, with many companies offering French Riviera yacht charters the reality is that you too could be basking in the sun off the coast of France. 

Visit the sun soaked coastal cities of Nice, Cannes and St. Tropez. Pretend you’re in a Bond movie with a visit to Monaco. This part of the world is dripping in luxury and is definitely a couples-only break that you deserve after a long period of not travelling.


Explore the ancient city of Rome and discover the stunning ruins of the Colosseum and Forum. Walk exactly where the ancient sandals of the Roman emperors once walked and take your full of delicious Italian food and hearty wine.

Visit the Vatican City and marvel at the incredible work of Michelangelo in St Peter’s Basilica. 

There’s plenty to see and do in Rome and with most of the ancient sites accessible by foot, the last thing you want is kids whining that they’re too hot, too tired and bored silly! 


With its miles of beautiful white golden beaches and abundance of adult only hotels, Mauritius is one place to spend with your other half that you needn’t feel guilty about leaving the kids at home.

Tucked away in the Indian Ocean, you have your pick of truly romantic and absolutely luxurious hotels where you can relax, indulge in incredible food and spend time reconnecting with your other half.


With plenty of cultural sites to see and a gorgeous beach to boot, Barcelona is the perfect destination for a kid free holiday. 

Visit the stunning Sagrada Familia, sample seafood paella in Barceloneta and walk down Las Ramblas humming Manic Street Preachers – Barcelona is as diverse as it is gorgeous.


Krakow has to be one of the most incredible cities to visit in Europe – especially if you appreciate good food and good drink.

Leave the kids at home and explore the Salt Mines, drink all evening and finish the night with pierogies to soak up the alcohol and spend a day understanding the horrors of Auschwitz. You’ll never forget a kid free trip to Krakow for all the amazing memories even if some are incredibly harrowing. 

I hope this has given you some much needed inspo for your next child free holiday. Do let me know in the comments which of your five holiday destinations is your favourite. For me it is a close call between Rome and Krakow!
