Help-First Christmas holiday with new son in law along?

Jump to last reply

Help a soon to be new mother in law out-please?
We are a family of four from the US who have been celebrating our Christmas holidays overseas since both sets of grandparents have passed away 8 years ago. My daughter is getting married this year and her soon to be husband wants to continue our Christmas family vacations together .

I am racking my brain trying to come up with a fun and exciting vacation for my new son in law and the rest of the family. My daughter and son in law will be living in the UK and we are coming from the US so will want to meet somewhere that is convenient for both of us.The vacation will probably be at least a week and possibly upwards to 12-14 days the latter part of December.We love vacations that involve seeing some history /sightseeing of the area;enjoying the food and wine along with somewhere that has temps around 50-60F. The "kids" are in their early 30's and love hiking,the ocean and exploring.
We usually rent houses or flats to have the choice of cooking facilities and the chance to play cards/board games at night with wine.

Some of the places we have gone on our previous Christmas vacations in the past years have been:
Egypt/Jordan;Cyprus;Madeira;Morocco;Canary Islands;Crete; and Southern Spain.

Please suggest any places that you think might make everyone happy this year?
I appreciate any and all help as I want this Christmas for our new family of five to be special!
