I'm looking for ideas about where to go this summer for 3 weeks for a relaxing holiday. We would be happy to stay in just one place or split our time between 2 or 3 resorts. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children (aged 10 and 7 years).
We are considering buying a holiday home abroad (country as yet undecided!), so if we decided Spain is the place we would like to return to year on year, we would want somewhere that we could visit all year round. We spent a few weeks in Greece last year and love it, but it seems to "close down" more over winter than Spain.
We are looking for somewhere within an hour or so of an airport. Within walking distance we would ideally like a nice beach, restaurants, shops, etc, but nowhere too overly developed. To give you an idea, we don't like Brits Abroad places like Bendiorm or Salou and like the idea of a fishing village, or similar. I've looked at Costa Tropical, in particuar La Herradura, but have read it's quite expensive to eat out? Can anyone confirm or otherwise?
I stayed in Nerja many years ago and from memory it seemed to have everything we're looking for - but has it been spoiled by tourism in the last few years?
I would welcome any ideas or suggestions! Thanks!
