My wife and I are heading to Italy (yet again) for our Summer break. We go there every year and have seen most of the cities and lots of the countryside. We can't get enough of it but we'd like some fresh ideas.
We plan to stay for two weeks - one by (or near) the seaside and the other in the countryside. The criteria for both places is that they must have a swimming pool and air-conditioning and must be within an hour or two of any one of the main airports (MIlan, Rome or Bologna).
Ideally, we'd like to be within walking distance of a good section of restaurants and the odd bar. We plan to just chill out and unwind so some on-site facilities (playground, tennis/football court) for the little guy would be great.
Our budget would be in the region of €100 to €150 per night.
Would be grateful for any suggestions.
