ok in summer we want to go away for a special holiday 10th wedding anniversary with thekids
we are thinking europe and cant hink of anything else really
the kids love eurocamp type thing but i watn comfy bed this year
wonderd if a villa with pool maybe too borign for them but as we are 5 we find hotels a pita re. rooms.

so we want the odd activity but not total kids care

a) boden braying wodul do my nut in and
B) it woudl be too expensive in holiday I think.

£2000 a week including flights? Well, you have been married for 10 whole long years, and you have 10 months to save up....and it is greece, therefore a fabulous choice

LadyDragonOfSoup · 06/10/2005 13:26

Oy! COd! I went and measured my Gap jeans for you.

oliveoil · 06/10/2005 13:26

It's less than £300 per day you cheapskate .

Go on, check for term time heh heh heh

We enjoyed Daphnes on zakynthos in May - recommended by a mumsnetter - and will be much cheaper. I know I'm always attracted to those Simply Travel places but they are quite pricey. Google daphnes zakynthos. We ate out all the time but I'm afraid I can't remember how much it was - remember thinking it wasn't dirt cheap but not too bad. Probably similar price to a bog standard italian restaurant here.

It will be hot hot hot in august though!
Have to say if I wanted something a bit like keycamp but more comfortable I would probably investigate something like a Pierre et Vacances set up. Don't know how the price would compare though.

TheRtHonBaronessEnidOBE · 06/10/2005 13:59

villa pia
