Small hotels in tuscany

This has been a challenging summer. Although your older daughter, who is going to be a junior in college, enjoyed the fact that she stayed on campus this summer rather than coming home, you and your husband missed having her at home. And while your younger daughter has enjoyed her time in the sun when she gets to be more in control of the family’s schedule at home, she, too, is missing the times that she and her sister used to spend together. After a few lonely weeks as the summer comes to an end, you and your husband came up with the perfect way to reunite for the upcoming weekend. With reservations made at one of the nicest hotels at a warm weather family resort, you were able to convince both of your daughter’s to take a break from their otherwise busy weekend schedules and spend some time together.
Although it would have been tempting to spend the upcoming three day weekend taking in a one of the warm weather wine tours, the possibility of getting both of your girls together at an inclusive family resort seems like the far better option.
