for me it would be
1. lots to see/do for us and dcs
2. exploring new places
3. having lovely food (cooked for you)
4. decent weather- not necessarily boiling, just no torrential rain.

bottom of wishlist would be
sunbathing/flopping by pool all day every/shopping

That would be my list too, but I do like spot of lounging by the pool as well. I like a holiday that allows me to have both active days and resting days otherwise I come home as tired as when I left.

1. Organised sporting activity for DS, must include football
2. Other families so DD can make a friend, pool useful for this
3. Interesting area so we can get about in a hire car to relieve boredom of 1 & 2
4. Good mix of restaurants in vicinity
5. Sun but not stupidly hot

(Without 1. The holiday is ruined by a perma whinging child)

Sun, sea & swimming pool
A pretty, traditional resort, not too big but not dead
Interesting places to visit round and about
Good food
History & culture

Luckily that is exactly what we are doing this year smile

Washing machine available
Separate "room" for the DC (can be sliding partition rather than an actual wall)
No dangerous steps in the room/between sections of the room
Some form of childcare/kids' club so I get some downtime
Enough sun loungers
Close to a beach with gently shelving sand & small waves (big enough to jump over; not big enough to knock you over)
Close to villages/towns with a variety of things to do, restaurants to go to etc, ideally ones which serve half portions of things on the menu rather than just offer fishfingers, pasta & tomato sauce & similar for the DC.

A month.

Somewhere amazing and exciting.

Eg whale watching off Antarctica, or trekking to Everest, or a road trip across Vietnam.

Not sure the rest of my family would agree though and I certainly can't afford it, so it's a uk camping trip.
Which will be fab smile

Has to be a Villa/ cottage somewhere lovely with private pool.

The dc love a pool, and I need it to be private, so I can practice my flailing around swimming without being blush

I taught myself to swim 2 yrs ago on holiday, and would never have been able to use armbands, floats etc. in a shared pool without feeling like a complete numpty!

Huge pool, water park, good beach, preferably with rocky bits (to attract fish for interesting snorkelling), no jelly fish!
Some shade to read a book in is good. Can't sunbath, burn instantly, but love swimming outdoors. Sea preferably, but DD2 prefers the pool.

Quick, sensibly priced, nice interesting food.
Friendly bars for a quiet drink in the evening. Bike hire, riding, boat trips, something to break up the week.

Dad sailed, DH was brought up by the sea. Both DDs are fish.
