Need ideas for a Christmas 2014 holiday vacation?

Jump to last reply

Okay Fodorites! I need your help again in picking somewhere for our family of four to go for 10-14 days over Christmas.

We are a family of four that are trying to find a special spot for our annual Christmas trip. My husband and I live in the US and our two adult children live in the UK. For the past five years since we have lost both sets of grandparents, we have chosen to meet our "klds" in the UK and fly somewhere in Europe or Northern Africa for a Christmas vacation.

We are looking for any suggestions that are within a 4-5 hour flight from the UK and that would offer a place that is somewhat warm than the usual European cold, has some historical and cultural things to see/do and has great food and wine. Some of our past trips were chosen because we wanted to be somewhere that wouldn't be totally shut down during the week of Christmas.

Past trips included:
Egypt and Jordan
Canary Islands

We have done most of the major cities in Europe along with Christmas markets so were hoping that someone could add something new and different? Thank you for taking the time to read this and offer any help!.
