Who went? 21mo and his 5yo cousin, Mum, Dad and Aunty Z, Nanny and Pa.
Review: Nice, low-key getaway. The apartment allowed for both private and communal areas which always improves everyone’s ability to get along, even on short stays of only a couple of nights (although I have no particular reason to think we couldn’t have done it anyway). There was a beach and a playground not far away, which was great for the kids, and a BYO pizza restaurant in the other direction, which was great for everyone. The pool at the apartment complex also came in handy, especially since it had a water slide. Self-catering facilities and a living room made it easy to gather everyone slowly over a no-fuss, drawn-out breakfast.
Highlights: Beach. Red wine and gourmet pizza.
Challenges: None that I can think of. This was one holiday where everything seemed to go pretty well. I mean, it rained on the second day, but you’ve got to expect that from time to time.
Price Bracket: Low. It was a self-drive weekend holiday, not too far up the coast, and Nanny managed to grab hold of a special offer somehow.
