Where was your best European holiday destination?

A few years ago there was a thread about the best ever holiday destination and quite a few posters mentioned one particular place in Europe. Of course I can't remember where it was. So where was your best ever European summer holiday?

Another one for Slovenia. Beautiful, small so easy to see a lot, and even so, quite a difference between the north and sound/coast.

A tie between Interlaken (actually a village on lake Brienz) in Switzerland, and Merano in the South Tyrol. Amazing natural beauty, loads to see, and we stayed in lovely hotels.

Agreeing with all the previous love for Slovenia. Have done Slovenia and Croatia and the Croatian islands but would like to go back with the kids.

Lovely welcoming hotels/beautiful scenery/yummy food and good cheap red wine! Loved it!

Tuscany - hot in mid summer but lovely and very good food. DS was kindly taken to Croatia and though it was marvellous.

Yes! We had a fabulous holiday in Halkidiki a couple of years ago and are thinking of going back next year. Never usually go to resort type places but this place is amazing. It’s called Sani Resort.

Austria is my favourite European destination.

Also had a great holiday in Montenegro.

Have been to Halkidiki, had a great holiday but I don't think it is WOW as a destination. Crete is definitely nicer if you're going to Greece.

Chamonix, France.
For our fa.ily there was so much to do. We went so many times when the kids were between 9 and16.

It was probably Sani. Seems to attract worshippers. Mostly well heeled SW London/Home Counties. Wall to wall childcare, costs a small fortune.

I haven’t been but admit to being Sani-curious Grin

Sweden. Or when the children were small, Rabbit Hill in the Netherlands. Short break, no expense spared, Iceland. I did like Corsica a lot but it’s just too hot for me in summer. I’d like to go back in spring.
