Algarve beach holidays
Home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, the Algarve's pretty little towns, Moorish villages, and great food give you so much to discover. And that's before you even get to the sun-drenched golf courses. All you have to do is choose your resort:View
Croatia beach holidays
Known as the 'Land of a Thousand Islands', with its cliffs, coves, bays, long beaches and those enchanting islands. From ancient hilltop towns to seaports, Roman cobbled streets to old castles, Croatia is the perfect holiday setting for anyone seeking something a little bit special.View
Greece beach holidays
A little piece of paradise on earth and the largest of Greece's islands. The island has a rich culture and history and whilst Crete may appear traditionally Greek on the surface, visitors soon discover a distinctly local twist.
An area still relatively untouched by tourism - this is one of Greece's best kept secrets. Our two contrasting resorts mean you can choose between getting lost in local traditions and quaint fishing villages or adrenaline-pumping water sports and great nightlife.
Impressive beaches, traditional villages and historical monasteries. The slow pace and crystal-clear waters make Skiathos a gorgeous choice for a relaxed stay and it's also a great base for exploring the smaller islands and their quieter beaches.
A vibrant and diverse island lying just off the coast of Turkey in the Aegean Sea. You'll find beautiful sandy beaches, a rich history and a variety of nightlife – from traditional and subdued to big club nights. And then there's a mix of tourist towns and unspoilt villages.
Italy beach holidays
An authentic slice of Sicilian life, set high on Monte Tauro overlooking the bay. Each resort offers something a little different from ancient ruins to beautiful beaches, to adrenaline-filled water sports.
The gem of Sardinia has a striking, rugged coastline and clear turquoise waters. The quaint piazzas and bustling village markets will draw you in and traditional tavernas oozing Italian hospitality will make it very difficult to leave. Make use of the car hire included and get out and about exploring the island.
Majorca beach holidays
An island of variety offering much more than initially meets the eye. We've picked three resorts with great beaches, chic marinas and beautiful scenery. And with car hire available as an extra, you can easily explore the compact island in your own time.View
