2nd European Family Adventure: favourite spots?

Jump to last reply

WE are off with our three kids (ages 5,10,12) this summer for our second European adventure. We spent six weeks in S France, Tuscany, Venice and Paris in 2013. The question is where to go next. I know this is vague.....but we are totally open.
We have 17days including travel days from Canada.
Here is what we like:
House or apartment for a week at a time. We love to shop and cook and relax a bit.
Smaller towns or countryside for majority of the trip.
One major city for approx 3 or 4 nights. Preferably at the end of the trip.
We are really active and love hiking, biking, swimming. A day at a beach, lake or hot springs is heavenly. Biking was one of the highlights of our last trip - but at a child's pace
We also love to immerse ourselves in the language, food and life in the country we are getting to know.
Occasional museums or historical sites but not every day,
Our kids LOVED Italy so we are open to exploring another area there. I LOVE France so another region there is a possibility as well.
BUT something completely new is more appealing.
OK folks...where should we go??????
