Luxury Holidays in July

July is the perfect month in which to enjoy a luxury holiday to Europe, with destinations that are great for families or would appeal more to couples or groups of friends, plus wildlife-viewing is excellent during July in destinations including South America and Africa.

Venture to Greece to experience family-friendly hotels on Crete and in the Peloponnese. Between them, they boast fabulous beaches, inviting temperatures, delicious cuisine and friendly, welcoming locals. The gorgeous Spanish island of Ibiza appeals to families and couples, alike, while the Côte d’Azur and Provence in France are the places to head to for glamour, breathtaking scenery and incredible French cuisine. Puglia is one of the hottest destinations in Italy right now – think stunning hilltop villages, ornate Baroque architecture and distinctive stone trulli houses enveloped by stunning countryside, not to mention incredible regional cuisine and wines.

South America has appeal for nature-lovers in July, as the weather is pleasant and there are opportunities to observe Andean Condors in Peru’s Colca Canyon, a stunning variety of colourful birds in Ecuador’s Cloud Forest and the indigenous Blue Footed Booby in the Galapagos Islands. Further south, visit Argentina to experience the effervescent atmosphere of cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, the capital city.

July is a fascinating time to visit Africa, with Botswana, Tanzania and South Africa allowing for excellent wildlife-viewing on land and sea. Floodwaters begin to rise in Botswana, which provides opportunities to easily spot animals while on board a makoro (traditional boat); Tanzania’s Serengeti offers the spectacle of the Great Migration as elephants gather and game is easier to spot in the dry, warm climate, while off the South African coast, the annual migration of Humpback Whales begins.

By contrast, this month is perfect for a luxury beach holiday to Asia, with Bali and Koh Samui enjoying wonderful weather.
