We have started bought a stack of euros to put away for our trip to Europe. I'm wondering if anyone can give me a guide on rough daily spend for a family of 5? We will be stayin in apartmen accommodation and self catering a lot, I'd imagine.
Countries we are going to that use the euro are France, Netherlands and Germany.

It all depends on the style of holiday you are planning on having.. If you want to eat at decent restaurants and do tours, museums, buy souvenirs and not have to worry about money in general i would budget for 100 euro a day per adult and 50 per child.
In saying that i am only going off my experience and i brought lunch and dinner everyday (not an expensive lunch as i was having hotel buffet breakfasts in the mornings) however i was easily spending 80-100 euro a day.

It really does depend on whether you plan to eat out a lot, do lots of sightseeing or just cruise around.
We spent about 100 Euro's a day as a family of 2 adults and 2 toddlers. But this was not including accom, car hire and petrol. we stayed in holiday homes and self catered breakfasts and a few lunches and dinners when we didn't feel like going out...
This was in France and Italy.
Oh, and we were mainly based in small towns and didn't do any 'sightseeing' as such. so no entrances fees to big ticket items like eiffel tower etc, just token amounts to smaller castles etc.
if you are doing all the sights that budget wouldn't work.
