I just got back from 14 days and it wasn't enough :(

But don't worry, anything 10 or above is good.

I used to do a two week stay a few years back but these days i go for three weeks, even that isn't long enough for me but the bossman will not let me have any time longer than three :(

Yes ,you should have booked for longer, I usually go for about three weeks ,and like Brettski, could easily stay longer ,if I could get the time off.

But then Im sure you will want to come back pretty soon.

I think the 10 nights is fine. Next time you'll probably increase it to 14!

We've stayed between 7 (far too short) and 17 nights, would love to stay longer unfortunately work dictates!

Thought I'd start a light humoured thread for a change, although must admit to getting a little envious of the 3 week stays..lol

10 days is definitely great, but longer is always better.

We started out with a week, which then increased to 2 weeks, then to 3 weeks, to 8 weeks. Now since we are retired we are staying even longer. This Jan we will be staying for out longest ever....12 weeks....yeah!!!!

Enjoy!!!!

I am very jealous of 12 weeks. We usually only get a two week holiday every second year, and I think I am lucky with two weeks. That old devil called work, poo!
