The time of the year when the school holidays start and it's family time to get away to someplace cool. I have kind of taken my family to the majority of the popular places, but this time around we want to go somewhere secluded, and peaceful and would like some suggestions. We would like to have some shops nearby, the main city possibly half an hour or less drive away. Something like what we generally see on the TV or the web, where there is an amazing room, with a great view of the hills. My budget is some what average, but can go on the higher side, depending on the location and accomdation.
