Where to go in Italty for next years holiday?

My 14 year old really fancies trying Italy next year for a two week holiday - but I could do with some advice on the best resort. We normally visit The Algarve, in an apartment near a beach but close to hotels that have some night life for the children. In the day we like to sunbathe around a pool, visit a beach and have some days out in towns and villages with genuine local charm. Good Food, good wine and definitely no "English" bars or Kareoke. Needs to be typically Italian. We would not want to be isolated as my daughter would get bored. We usually hire a car for the whole holiday

Any recommendations please on the best area?

Consider Sardinia. Have a look at my trip report and photographs on the following link :-

Thanks Welshtraveller

Sardinia looks beautiful. Would you say it is windier than the mainland? And is it more expensive on average than the mainland? Whats the ave price of a house glass of wine? Or a 2 course meal for 2?

Any body else can recommend anywhere on the mainland so I can compare options?

Maybe Sorrento would fit the bill, it is touristy these day's unfortuately but ticks all the other boxes,

You could fly to Pisa and drive south to the unspoilt Maremma region:

If you want night life then head north to Viareggio or Forte dei Marni:

I think the Viareggio and Versilia area is really better for you and for teens...sorrento is very beautiful, but no fun at all!!

Ok, thanks to you all. So I have narrowed it down to:

> Sardinia

> Viareggio

> Versilia

> Amalfi Coast

So can anyone now recommend an apartment complex with pool, close to beach where hopefully there is enough going on to keep a teenager occupied, so she can chill out with other teenagers -in any of these areas PLEASE

Thanks :)

I would say that Sardinia is generally slightly more expensive than the mainland. With regards to the wind, I am not sure if there is any great difference. Unable to help with your specific accommodation question, but I suggest you look at the following link from the Just Sardinia website deals, which deals with family holidays in Sardinia :-

Hope this helps a little.

You might also look into Cefalu, a lovely town on Sicily's northern coast...
