Hi Folks, I'd be grateful for any tips. we are a family of 6, 4 teenagers. We love to holiday away from touristy beaches etc. We often rent houses and we like to wander around local culture villages towns and markets. we enjoy outdoor activities, hill walking, swimming, we like to eat and drink and be merry. We have little enough budget wise but are planning to go somewhere perhaps southern or central Europe but open to suggestions. What I'm looking for is some advice about where we might rent a house or apartment near or in a village/town where we can relax and ramble the surrounding areas. vague I know, we holidayed in Catalonia last year in a small finca out in the olive groves near a village, we have house swapped and few times in Germany and France etc. I'd be very grateful for any advice anyone might be able to give us. Thanks from chilly and wet Ireland.
