Lekkerwijn is a gorgeous B&B near Franschoek, less than one hour from Cape Town. It is very family friendly with a small swimming pool, playroom, lot of animals and baby-sitting options. The house used to be a family home and is a stunning example of Cape Dutch architecture with original furniture; the bedrooms are huge and light. Franschoek is a short drive away, but you can walk to a couple of wineries that are close by (Allee Bleue and Solms-Delta), both of which have excellent wines available for tasting as well as delicious lunchesor pic-nics. The owners (Simon, Ross and little Alexander) are very welcoming and friendly, and full of good suggestions. This place pretty much made our holiday!
About one hour outside Rome, near the lovely lake and town of Bracciano is the Grand Hotel delle Terme di Stigliano. The hotel is beautiful and the setting in the hills of Lazio very peaceful. You can relax by the huge hotel pool or choose one of the various thermal pools. Spa treatments are available in the hotel, but also in the thermal centre nearby which is open to the public. There have been thermal springs here since Roman times: one of the treatments is in an original Roman Grotto!
