Sweet dreams are made of this… Madeira in the warm sunshine. From the scenic miles of coastal views to the leafy shaded areas running throughout the island, it really is a paradise break destination like no other. Sit back with a plate of the famous Black Scabbard fish and banana while watching the world go by, or take in the awe-inspiring vistas on a walk up to the dizzying heights of the mountains. Either way, you won’t be disappointed.
Think of food that’s rich in flavour and variety and Italy instantly springs to mind. From delicately seasoned risottos and fresh pasta with mixed seafood and a mouth-watering sauce to generously filled cannoli pastries (pictured) , there’s plenty to sink your teeth into across the country. We recommend Rome for fantastic fodder with the historic setting to match… and all of that sightseeing is bound to work up an appetite!
For unrivalled culture head to Amsterdam on your next break. Whether you’re eager to look around the world-famous Rijksmuseum. or would like to learn more about the city’s much-publicised Red Light industry, there’s plenty to learn more about. For a true glimpse into this fascinating city, we recommend taking a canal cruise before taking in one of the museums that put Amsterdam on the map – the Van Gough Museum or Anne Frank House is a good place to start (just remember to pre-book, as they can get pretty busy).
What could be nicer than a weekend break in Cornwall? A weekend break in Cornwall with a pool like this, of course! Head to Polurrian Bay Hotel and experience that infectious beach vibe, as it’s set above its own secluded sandy beach. The hotel is also located on the Lizard Peninsula, so there’s plenty of coastal walking routes ready and waiting to be discovered.
Unleash the adventurer from within and head to Akureryi for a once-in-a-lifetime getaway. The Northern Icelandic city is filled with exciting and unusual things to do, from whale watching and fishing in the fjords to bathing in a beer spa and, of course, searching for the mysterious Northern Lights. Take stunning photos of the famous Godafoss waterfall and marvel at the fascinating Dimmuborgir lava formations – it’s a trip like no other.
Pretty stunning, right? For unparalleled beauty and awe-inspiring culture & history, it has to be Bath… and the hotel should impress, too! Sit back and enjoy luxury like no other at the 5* Macdonald Bath Spa Hotel. Whether you fancy a spa treatment with a loved one before a delicious meal in the grand Vellore Restaurant, or would prefer to explore the best of what Bath has to offer at your leisure, you’re bound to have a memorable stay.
It has to be the vibrant city of Barcelona when talking about a buzzing nightlife scene. With plenty of cultural festivals and events throughout the year, the city’s calendar is jam-packed with things to discover throughout the year. The San Miguel Mas i Mas Festival is one of Barcelona’s biggest events, with concerts taking place across key Barcelona venues until early September. Alternatively, indulge in some sangria and tapas as the sun sets before heading out for a spot of moonlit dancing… the choice is yours.
