Slovenia may not be somewhere that was previously at the top of your list to visit, however, this beautiful country is fantastic and it is also great for families too. This country is quite small, so you can easily hire a car and visit many different parts of it. We would recommend driving to the capital Maribor where you will find a range of fun activities for all ages. You can go canoeing on the river Drava during the summer months or go to Phoroje in the winter months to go skiing! You can also visit Phoroje in the spring to check out the single-track toboggan which will launch your down the ski slopes at an incredible 30mph!
If you are looking for somewhere to do lots of fun water sports activities, then you will want to head out to Brittany, France. This is a charming sea side resort and we would recommend that you stay in St-Malo. There is a strip of gorgeous beaches plus beautiful winding streets in the old walled town. You can check out lots of great water sports here such as kayaking! If you are in need of a great sea touring kayak, be sure to check out the article “Best Sea & Touring Kayaks of 2018: Reviews of the Top Single & Tandem Performers” to ensure you get the best and correct type of kayak for this type of water sports fun.

There is also the lovely Otranto, which is a seaside town with a stunning castle and you can also visit Alberobello which is a UNESCO protected town filled with trulli.
