    For me it's the little winery we stayed at, overlooking San Gimgnano, Tuscany, Italy

    We like to go to new places, so in planning a trip it starts with the question: "Where haven't we been before?" Having said that we do return to Spain and have been several times to Portscatho in Cornwall. :)

    Great question!
    I look forward to reading these replies with pencil and paper to hand.
    For us, probably Sanlucar de Barrameda. Near Cadiz.
    Great free aire on the beach front, in a traditional spanish town, with lots to do.
    Spectacular bullfights and about a dozen sherry bodegas.
    Good promenade and local cycle paths.

    I really should stop telling people about this.

    There's too many but I do like La Mailleraye sur Seine, sitting by the river watching the ships go past; Antibes, hope to get back there some day; Betws-y-Coed; North York Moors; the Lake District.

    Has to be anywhere in the New Forest. Except Lyndhurst. Like the town, hate the traffic jams.

    Again probably too many to mention but St Goar on the Rhine watching the barges and cruise ships going round Loreley and Mortagne sur Gironde Spring to mind

    Most of my traveller favourites have been from a sailing yacht, my own or more often a charter vessel. I would rank Foxy's bar on Little Jost Van Dyke in the B.V.I's. (He has a Live Cam if you look it up)

    I would also include Parga on mainland Greece (Ionian) for the magnificent views and the reastaurant choice.

    I'd like to see Italy again and or go down to Greece. A great question Robert, I think if we sat with a glass in our hands you could sell me many destinations from your list of haunts.

    If I had to relocate in the UK I'd got to somewhere near Porthmadog so I had easy access to all the places I've loved visiting over the years.

    If I could choose to live permanently abroad it would be in Charente-Maritime in France.

    However, as I have a MH I can go to these places whenever it suits, and still live here. Best of both worlds.

    So many great places in France but our favourite regular stop is La Mailleraye-sur-Seine.
    Great aire with plenty of space between marked pitches and two good boulangerie within a short walk for those morning croissant.
