Help please - 3 months in Europe slow family travel itinerary

Jump to last reply

I have spent many hours researching and have come up with an itinerary for our big adventure next year, thanks to the wonderful help I have received from my many questions, thank you all. I would appreciate any comments or suggestions you may have.

Background: Aussie family with 4 and 9 year olds. Will be leaving Australia this Christmas, living in south of England with kids at school for 6 months. During any school holidays we will travel in UK and may have a week in Spain in February. From 20 June we will spend 3 months travelling and 3 months living in family home in Croatia (near Split).

We will catch trains as much as possible, with car hire in rural locations as necessary and limit travel times to less than 4 hours where possible. We are looking at staying on working farms, in accommodation at campgrounds and vacation rentals. As often as possible we will stay 7 days so we have many days at "home" as well as busy days out.

Aim: to travel slow enough to not burn out, get some homeschooling done and see the sights and experience cultures very different to our own.

Carcassone (1 night)
Provence (6 nights - farm?)
Conque (1 night)
Dordogne (7 Nights - gite at campground near Sarlat)
Paris (7 nights - vacation rental, near Luxembourg gardens)
Cochem (7 nights camp ground)
Colmar (3 nights vacation rental?)
Lauterbrunnen (6 nights vacation rental)
Lake Maggiore (3 nights camping?)
Verona (2 nights B&B?)
Alto Adige or Innsbruck (6 nights farm?)
Salzkammergut (7nights camp ground)
Salzburg (3 nights vacation rental)
Slovenia (7 nights farm)
Istria(Porec) (7 nights with family)
Venice (5 nights vacation rental)
Tuscany (7 nights farm)
Rome (5 nights in campground)
fly to Split (18 September) enjoy "home life" with side trips 3 months

This itinerary consists of 82 "Schengen" days and has Provence, Tuscany and Rome out of peak season for prices and heat.

I have removed the Black Forest, Strasbourg and Bavaria from the itinerary as a) we would arrive in Croatia too late to enjoy the beach, b) risk using up our Schengen days and c) we can go to all three at Christmas time to enjoy the Christmas markets as we make our way back to London to fly back to Australia.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post, I am looking forward to hearing your comments and suggestions.
