The Italians got it right. For years we cringed about the idea of 3 generations of family sharing a house, how the combined noise and lack of personal space would be just way too much to bear. While I can’t see myself moving back in to my parents house anytime soon, the idea of family holidays is one that we see more and more. If you think about it, what better way to catch up with your clan than by the beach in a generous home that has a pool for the kids, multiple living areas to get some me time and if you bring Nanna & Pa along, you’ve also got cooks & babysitters included! The family holiday or famolidy (I’m copywriting that one..) is brilliant and there’s something real and earthy about it which is hard to replicate in todays fast, impersonal, screen based world. Call your parents, cook some pasta and holiday the Italian way!
