I'll already be in Tuscany June 9-15 (with D10 and our dog, and my cousin's family) and was planning on staying in the region for another week with D10 and dog anyways.  Therefore, the week of June 15-22, or part of it, would actually work very well if it's ok for you that I would be bringing my daughter along -- and doggie... 

I was wondering whether other LBSes will be bringing their kids.  It may be comforting for our children to realize that other kids have had a similar experience, with one parent leaving the family quite abruptly.  D10 told me that other kids, even those whose parents are divorced, just don't get how she's been feeling inside.

Bumping up this thread in case not everyone had a chance to see it.

Right now it looks like June and September are the preferred months. It also looks like there's a preference to being closer to Florence. Prices in June will be higher than September. I'll start taking a look.

Puzzled, I agree that our kids could do with mixing with other kids like them although I don't think there will be any at this meet up so not sure it will be a fun environment for a child. It might be an idea to organize something another time with our kids. I have often thought it would be good for our kids to have a Kid's MLC forum, but I doubt they would post because they have so much other stuff going on. An alternative would be to come see us for a day . I don't know what the others think.

Everyone, three things. First, June and September are the preferred months, with September have a slight lead. Prices for houses in September will also be much better. Can we do a recount on who would come if it were September? Best if the first half of the month since we want to be able to sit outside both at home and at cafés.

Secondly, I need to know if any of you are willing to share a room. As I searched the internet for some houses in my area, they tend to have 5 bedrooms, sometimes 6 max. Some rooms have twin beds.  Clearly anyone who shares a room would pay half the amount of the person with their own room. Based on your answers, I'll be able to understand whether we need a house or some other form of accommodation.

Thirdly, how many days do we want to do?

Sept is better for me.
However, I now have two important events coming up and not sure of the dates yet.  One milestone bday and the other a wedding.
I am determined to still make this trip.   :P
