staying a month or so in each place

Jump to last reply

In about five years or so, my wife and I may be able to start traveling for a few months a year, and going to Europe would be high on our list. I traveled alot in Europe in the 1980's during my high school and college years, but haven't been back. I'd like to explore the idea of slow traveling, and staying on one place for about a month or so, and then moving on. In such a scenario, we would rent an apartment, and enjoy the area. We could do side trips from our home base, and maybe even spend a few nights away from our home base. We wouldn't have a car, but would plan on doing quick train trips in the area for our side trips.
Some areas I've thought about to do this are as follows. Germany, the Munich area, good city to headquarter, and lots of close beautiful nearby places.
Austria, perhaps the Salzkammergut region. I loved the area in my last visit, only drawback is that there aren't too many nearby day trip cities outside of Salzburg.
Italy, I'd like to find a nice beach town to home base at. I wouldn't mind just hanging about a nice town with easy beach access for awhile. I did this with my sister many years ago in Calabria and had a great time. I'm thinking around the Genoa area now. Also, the biggies Florence and Rome are obvious as well, though not in the summer.
I've been looking at rental offerings on Airbnb, and the prices for monthly rentals look much more attractive than by the night or week. I wonder if anyone else has done this kind of travel, and what other regions in Austria, Germany, France, Italy or Spain people would recommend.
