Great journeys should be shared...

A family blog

Thanks to others sharing their travel inspiration, we’ve ended up in some amazing places. We’d like to return the favour with this website, featuring special places to stay, swim and eat across Europe.

What we’ve picked

Small hotels and beach bars, hidden coves, national parks, cycle routes, walking trails, the quieter and quirkier sights, the roads less travelled. Lots of tips for Spain’s peaceful northern coast, its islands, its extraordinary inland scenery, cool Catalonia… plus favourite spots in France, Italy and the UK.

How to use

Pick a country or region from the main menu at the top; scroll down through suggestions, then click on the web or social media link for more information.
