I'm going to Tsilivi in Zante again this year.
It will be my 5th time there as i love it. The Greek people are so friendly, they remember you by your first names even if you dont stay at their hotel all the time.
love it love it love it:green:

I forgive you for not mentioning France...I suppose dineyland does count,in some peculiar way....but us French dont really do disney like the americans can do you think Jo??:green:

So here is my list for France:)...

Picardy in the north has bustling ports,gothic cathedarels...beer is often drunk

Champagne area....well vineyards,champagne is cooked in meals...Troyes is a lovely city,and is famous for "andouilettes" sausages!

Brittany is beautiful,lovely beaches,the musterious carnac,megalyths,lovely fishing ports...

Normandy...d day beaches,cider and calvados,and the magnificent mont st michel...

The Loire...fairytale chateaux,the birth place of Joan of Arc,in orlens...Le Mans car racing...

Burgundy...woodlands and waterfalls,romanesque churches...the wines here are the most delicious in the world:)

Le Massif Central...the dramatic landscape,extinct volcanoes...remote villages...the treasures of Gorges Du Tarn...

The Rhone Valley and French Alps...Lyon,Grenoble,and the spa toen of Evian Les Bians..

Poitou and Aquitaine...La Rochelle has a lovely harbour...the Marais Poitevin has beautiful marsh land...Poitiers Cathederale is stunning...Bordeaux wine is delicious!

Perigord,Quercy and Gascony...Rocomadour is breathtaking...the market in Sarlat is tempting...the caves here is where you can see where prehistoric man lived.

The Pyrenees...there is a huge shrine at Lourdes...Basque country here...
skiing is abundant...

Languedoc Rousillon...Carcassonne is majestic,Perpignan is colourful,Narbonne has a beautiful river running through it,Montpellier is such a young,vibrant city....the beaches here...collioure is stunning...sete,agde...and also my birth place:green:

Provence...the riviera,Cannes...the ancient town of Avignon...

Corsica is also French...but a little bit pricey!

There...i think i have covered a whistle stop tour of France...my personal fav for families or couples though is the Languedoc...it has everything!:)

awwww Gabi...I am so bad to your homeland...

Disney is fab...my hubby prefers it to the US versions...but yeah your right...not really Paris...

I have been to Paris...but it scared me..I was 12 years old and got accosted on the metro....

Carcassone...passed through it...not sure if we had McDonalds there....is it near Limoges????

Although we drove from the South of France to Paris...we only stopped in the Formula 1's .... Brieve (?) was the best...:lol:

I want to go back to france though and have a holiday in a farmhouse...I have got some real affection for the country...I mentioned to hubby as a holiday this year...but think we are buying a new home....so maybe soon...

I love the area east of Malaga, round La Herradura and Almunecar. It is still very "local" and unspoiled by tourism (ooops maybe should have kept quiet! :eek:)

I love Blackpool Sands In Devon (nr Dartmouth)

Not the best sand but extremely clean and well cared for beach and of course, important to me, an organic cafe :lol:

I love Benidorm but this year Paul and I have promised ourselves a biking holiday down to my cousins place in Arle, thats South of France, very Spanish feel and look, I love it there and I'm hoping that Paul will fall in love with it to.
If he does my Uncle wants to build me a home:green:
Unfortunately we would then need jobs:rolleyes:
