Want to have a week in Europe next August, am open to where.
Not too lively, family friendly.
For four of us. Me ,DH,DS 14 and DD10.

I had a look at porta pollensa but it was ££££

Which countries offer the best value?
France, Spain Italy etc.

Needs to be close to a beach and a pool.

I'm asking for too much aren't I?

Anyone have any idea when the flights for next august aren't so exp.
Im shocked at how much they are into europe.

We cant do cornwall now due to unforseen circumstances.
I will start looking at all the recomendations on here.
Until i can see where we can fly to reasonably its difficult to look at accomodation.

We went to Spain, near Granada, this August and it was £500 a week for a villa with a private pool. Last year we went to Italy, Tuscany and paid £350 a week for an apartment in a house with a private pool.

This year we are going to Turkey and we are hoping to get a villa for around £500.

It can certainly be done, you just need to look around.

I had a two bed apartment for 10 days b&b for less than £400 in a place called Mandello Del Lario, on lake Como in Italy. It was lovely - five minute walk to the lake (with beaches - not sandy but gorgeous with mountains surrounding you). Flights to Milan are v cheap also. Milan to Mandello is about 1 hour by train, direct there.
Mandello is also non touristy (but close to the touristy places) so cheaper than Bellagio, or Milan etc.
