Lucca was a fabulous place to spend a week. Our apartment was expansive and lovely, there were playgrounds nearby, the kids had a great time and were fussed over everywhere, the food was spectacular (as always). I learned more about the intricacies of ordering coffee by visiting the local cafe every day, and indulged in a holiday favourite of cakes for breakfast. When can I go again?!

We've been on holiday. The first week was spent at Tintagel, exploring some of the nearby Cornish villages.
Highlights for adults - seafood, local pubs, coast walks.
Highlights for kids - tractors towing boats, crab pots and dragon poo (don't ask).
Visually, the place was inspiring: herringbone stone walls, tapestried wildflower cliffs, monochrome quilted beaches.
