I am going to Italy with my parents (67 & 68) and 3 kids (11, 5,3) from July 23-30. I'm looking for a good location to stay base ourselves to visit the Lakes and Switzerland. Maybe do a day trip to Courmayeur if we can muster it.
I was looking at Como but it's overflowing w tourists at this time and it's been impossible to get a family friendly place to stay w a pool that is reasonably priced. I was thinking of either getting a house, villa or maybe stay at a nice agriturismo.
We will be there a week and I don't want to overwhelm the kids and pack each day with a million things. I'd like a nice central place to stay so if on a particular day we just want to stay in and relax, the kids can still have fun in the pool or horsebackriding or playing in a playground, etc. Any ideas? I'm totally stuck!! so any guidance at all will be greatly appreciated!
