Mom's 60th in Europe or ? with 3 Adult Kids, Spouses & 1 Grandbaby

Jump to last reply

Suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I was thinking of an Italian villa in Tuscany for 2 weeks in September/October 2010. I am hesitating because I am nervous about transporting 8 adults and a baby and do not want to spend our time only at a villa. Will there be enough to do, places to go and see? Will it be too difficult to get everyone out together? All of us have traveled -- My husband and I go to Europe each year, most recently to England,Wales, Scotland, France (Paris, Loire Valley & Normandy), Germany, and Italy. We like to sight see, but especially like exploring places that are off the beaten tourist locations. If we go to Italy, which we think would be good because of the weather, food, atmosphere and people, is there any difficulty driving? I drove in Naples and almost had a heart attack! Driving on the Amalfi Coast in January was fabulous, but I would not like to repeat the Naples experience.

Other places that we have thought of as possibilities are Spain, Greek Islands, Turkey, Australia, Hawaii and possibly the UK. My husband and I have traveled quite a bit and have particularly enjoyed Scotland, Ireland, North Wales, Berlin, Prague & Budapest. I was in Greece many, many years ago and enjoyed that too. I would like to have 3 places to explore the possibilities. I would like to be able to stay together in one house or villa, but do not know what is available and do not want to have to cook 3 meals a day for everyone! Are there villas that come with cooks? Drivers? We also like hiking and photography, so nice trails and great views and interesting people to photograph would be great. Anyone with good or bad experiences to offer sagely advice? Thanks for responding with ideas and tips.
