    Depends on your budget. The Amalfi Coast Italy ticks the boxes. Stay in Sorrento if you want cheap but branch out to Positano (for shopping) and visit Ravello and the Volcano sites (for culture). Think you can do Rome for a dat from there too.

    We stayed at this hotel, was really sweet and in the hills but good transport down to Sorrento

    when u thinking of going, I have a place in Portugal and the weather can b nice this time of year, depends what u want really, but most of the budget airlines fly there so u can someitmes do it cheaply booking your own accomm etc :)

    It's on the west coast, Portimao, the main town for the Algarve, not very touristy, but the night life is there if u want it, beach 10 minutes walk, some nice restaurants nearby, it's a one bed top floor apartment in a small gated complex, 32 apts altogether, mianly locals live there, few Irish owners as well as German and Spanish, always quiet though :D

    I've posted a few pics so u can see lol

    well that was the plan originally to retire there eventually, but they have since changed their laws on importing Rotts, so my plans will have to likely change lol :D

    I don't get out there much, but great when I want to go and relax somewhere and re charge batteries, outlaws have used it more than us, once market picks up might look at selling it if I can turn a profit, but can't at the moment :) I do love it though, walk in drop ya bags and breath, feel the stress leave u, bliss :)

    If you want to check out the area its in Mundesley :) We have found it to be amazingly Dog Friendly because most of their off peak trade is Dog walkers, doesn't get overly busy either even at the height of summer and only a short part of the beach is a no dog zone during main holiday season, as long as you avoid that bit dogs are free to run ;).
