Learn to sail holiday?Posted 4 years ago
1 week learning to sail, but hotel based in the evenings. Also time to check out local stuff, muck around and do other water stuff. Then 1 week island hopping in a flotilla. Only problem is the week spent in a boat can be a bit cramped – not sure how the teenagers would feel about being cooped up with the adults, or vice versa. Neilson do them – search for “villa flotilla”. You come out with a RYA qualification at the end too.piedi di formaggioSubscriber
Nice weather – not bonkers hot though
Beach / pool relaxing & mucking about in
Local scenery / places of interest things to see/do
Not too far away (max 4 1/2 hours on a plane)
Not too busy
Will be two teenagers and myself & the Mrs

Rhodes Old Town.
It’s one of the few lived in Medieval towns, and is full to the rafters of history.
We stayed in a 4 star hotel called Mitsis Petit Palais (round the corner from the 5 star Mitsis Grand Hotel). We stayed about 2/3 years ago for a fortnight and didn’t get bored of the AI food. The pool is small but it wasn’t bad.
The best thing is that it’s walking distance to the old town, and you can spend days wondering about the streets reading about the crusades etc.
It’s walking distance to the beach, but it’s not the best beach IIRC.Posted 4 years agohammeriteMember
Majorca, Pollensa or Soller area.
Hire car, day trip in the mountains/Lluc/Formentor/Soller. Day trip to Palma too.
Last time we were there temps were fine, time before that it was bonkers hot. But anywhere Mediterranean could be like that.
….and if you did want to get a bike for a day, plenty of places to hire from.Posted 4 years agodannyhMember
My absolute favourite week to ten days chilling holiday.
Quite hot, but not as silly hot as a lot of greek islands. Gorgeous food. Quiet island with a few nice bars in the main town and cracking fish restaurant.
I would have recommended Santorini as well, but half of the island has black sand on the beaches so you cannot walk barefoot on them, and every nice restaurant in the spectacular settings is full of loud-mouthed obnoxious russians.Posted 4 years ago
