Get to know authentic Italy in Umbria!

Umbria is pure Italian love and simply a great destination for a family vacation in Europe. In the region without sea, there is all the more nature to admire. Our favorite place is called Borgo Castello Panicaglia and is a family-run design hotel, freshly renovated and equipped with all sorts of amenities for families. There’s a playground in the woods, a spacious pool, activities for the kids, and during truffle season, you go on a search with an expert. In addition, the hotel has an excellent restaurant. On the table are exclusively dishes with ingredients from the region, which the chef personally selects. The historic city of Assisi, numerous wineries and excursions into nature are in the immediate vicinity. Read more about a vacation in Umbria with kids here.

The variety of vacations with kids brings Rovinj!

Not too often do we fall in love with a town as quickly as in Rovinj. You can stroll along the waterfront always with a different view of the harbor, the old town or the open sea. Here and there a small island lies off the coast. The town has preserved much of its originality. And yet some numerous cafes and restaurants invite you for a cappuccino, an aperitif or a meal. Almost adjacent to the old town is a huge natural park Golden Cape, where there are numerous bays. Everything can be reached on foot, even with kids. We loved having the car completely stationary on this vacation with the kids. Click here for the post!
