I'm looking for a place to stay with my family in Europe that's
- not too expensive
- has relatively cool weather
- and nice hikes.
Bonus points for somewhere that's a little off the beaten track (if that's even possible in Europe). Last year we were in the Austrian Alps, which was perfect. Item 1 rules out Switzerland and most of Scandinavia. Item 2 rules out most of Europe except high mountains and the north. I thought the Pyrenees would make a good destination but to my surprise despite the altitude they're quite warm in summer.
