2015 Europe Goal - Please help

Jump to last reply

Hi... I'm Mike and my wife is Nicky and we live in New Zealand.

We are 56 & 52 and planning to spend February to November 2015 in Europe.

We don't have any major preferences excepting that warm weather is essential.... so Southern France, Warm Italy, or Spain are all potential options for us as long as we are somewhere to use as a springboard to seeing it all while we are on that side of the world.

We need advice in all areas of decisions to be made. We would "like" to be near the coast in an epicenter environment close to travel options to treat our retreat as a European base for 10 months. Being Kiwis we don't particularly want to drive so trains etc. would be a bonus.

We obviously do not want to spend a fortune but are realistic also about the cost of living in a safe, pleasant and clean environment.

So..... Let's hear from you PLEASE???. All advice, suggestions and offers regarding places, prices, options and opportunities are welcome and will be treasured and replied to. If we are truly kidding ourselves.... Id rather know NOW than plan this for 15 months and have a disaster. Thanks in advance.... Mike and Nicky
