Family Vacation England, France & Italy 20 Days

Jump to last reply

I have already booked our flights for our European vacation June 2016. We Plan to start in London for only 2 nights then take train to France for 4 days then take the Thello night train to Italy. We are 3 adults and 2 kids age 12 and 15. We will require 2 rooms or a multi bedroom property.

I am okay with a VRBO in Italy someplace central that we could take day trips, and have a home base. I would like to focus our Italy travel to the Northern region. Not that interested in Rome.

While in France I am intrigued by staying in a Castle or Chateau someplace we could take day trips to Paris and Bordeaux by train.

While in England I would love to stay one night at one of the countryside Castles within a few hours of London, but not sure if that is a good idea with our time there short. Although, I could extend days there if we had some place fabulous to visit.

The whole undertaking of planning and booking is a little over whelming. Can someone recommend a service that could help me do this so I can feel comfortable that fun activities for kids are planned along the way.

Any suggestions are welcome! The only thing I have set in stone is starting in London on June 5 and ending in Bologna, Italy on June 21.

Thanks!
