Book Early For Your Summer Holiday To Europe

If you’re travelling with your partner or friends, and are looking for somewhere with a boutique feel to enjoy quality time together, how about Finca Cortesin in Andalucia’s rolling hills? Its golf course is ranked as one of Spain’s best and the spa features a thermal area designed to improve circulation. If you’re craving relaxation time beside the sea, the beach club is nearby, but for some authentic Spanish cuisine dine at El Jardin de Lutz accompanied by views over the olive groves. Amongst the all-suite accommodation are suites with a private pool − excellent for those seeking a little extra privacy.

Does a romantic city break sound more appealing? If so, Florence brims with Italian charm and many leisurely hours can be spent in art galleries full of Renaissance treasures or marvelling at iconic sites such as the mighty Duomo. Grab a gelato and walk across the River Arno via the Ponte Vecchio Bridge − it’s an enchanting place to declare your love, or even propose! The picturesque Tuscan countryside and Chianti wine country are in easy reach too. Grand Hotel Villa Cora, a new hotel to our portfolio this year, is the ideal complement. This historic mansion boasts lavishly decorated interiors, pristine parkland and vistas across the Boboli Gardens. With two restaurants, including the gastronomic Le Bistrot, a bar, a spa and an outdoor heated swimming pool, it assures a glamorous stay.

If you’re travelling with family we have an incredible choice of five-star family-friendly resorts for sun-filled days on the beach. In Halkidiki, Greece, Sani Beach Club has a private sandy beach with shallow water to splash around in and offers a ‘Babewatch’ beach babysitting service. Deluxe Family Rooms, a family swimming pool with a dedicated children’s area and facilities for 4-month to 17-year-olds, including a crèche, mini club and teen club, are sure to make your stay even more comfortable. With a range of places to eat, bars, spa facilities and a shuttle service to Sani Resort’s main marina, it’s great for families looking for lots to do on-site.

For a more cultural element to your time away, consider Borgo Egnazia in Italy’s Puglia region. Styled on a typical traditional village, there is a selection of different accommodation and a piazza − the beating heart of the resort − where events that celebrate local festivals, products and fare are frequently held. Hilltop towns, Baroque architecture, caves and Neolithic sites are within driving distance too. Borgo Egnazia is, however, very contemporary with plenty of chic facilities including the VAIR spa and a beach with two beach clubs a few minutes’ drive away, as well as opportunities for Italian cookery classes and 'I Trullaleri' kids' club and 'I Fichi d’India' teenagers’ club, to ensure all age groups are suitably entertained.
