Where to travel this summer, not too warm?

Jump to last reply

Me and my family have an endless debate over locations for our next holiday and I wonder if anyone could help.

My dad as, always, wants somewhere hot where he can sit by a pool while me, my mum and sister have trouble dealing with the excessive summer heat in places like Greece and Italy (we have visited Rome and Florence in August and as wonderful as it was the uncomfortable heat marred our experience). We would ideally want somewhere relatively easygoing such as a town or pedestrianized, not too busy city (poss even near a beach), with cultural activities and good transport links so we don't have to hire a car, where sun and reasonable warmth are pretty much guaranteed but not stifling. Definite warmth as apposed to the lack luster British summer. I have considered North Spain but I'm not sure about the temp.

We are travelling from the UK and are looking for this summer. I have never posted here before but I figured the wisdom of the forums may help solve our conundrum! Thank you very much!
