    I'd say "escape". The "little get away" is "escapadita", but as in the one you take with your boyfriend/husband/lover/whatsoever-you-like, you know, "para romper la rutina"

    You have several choices for the "little get away from the children". It's perhaps like "válvula de escape", "escondite", "refugio"... it pretty much depends on what you want to express (a tangible place to hide, or a pshychological relief ;) )

    Hello:

    En general, to get away, es la oportunidad de un retiro. Es una expresión muy usada cuando alguien quiera "escaparse" de vacaciones, especialmente a un lugar más tranquilo.
