For weeks already I am filling up my few spare moments with the search for THE summer destination for 2014. I love looking at summer holiday options, but this year it is different.
We have a problem in our family: our wishes and expectations for a summer holiday do not match anymore!
- THE BOYS (adolescents, they will be 16 and 15 then): sun, sea, beach, swimming, nice young people (like girls) to hang out with, night life and wifi.
- PETER & I: nature, culture, authentic old towns, quietness, nice food, sun, swimming, and reading piles of books in the shadow.
What we have in common:
We don't like campings! It is a pity, it would be great for the boys to hang out with other young people, but we just don't like sleeping in tents, going to the communal bathroom etc.
We like to have sunny vacations, no matter where in the world.
Our budget is not high: we can't afford hilltop villa's with infinity pools, although we would love to stay there ;-)
Would you happen to know any authentic little coastal village/small town somewhere in the south of Europe, where the boys can have their fun and where we can have our tranquility and culture?
If you have any good ideas for us: please leave a comment, I would be so thankful!
