Costa de la Luz, Spain


Found to the west of the busier and more built-up Costa del Sol, the Costa de la Luz offers a quieter, more unspoiled side of Andalucía. Meaning ‘coast of light’, this area has miles of stunning sandy beaches, protected nature reserves and the beautiful and historic cities of Cádiz, Tarifa and Sanlúcar.

The Greek Islands

Greek islands

Our favourite Greek islands for an Easter getaway include Crete and Rhodes because they’re two of the warmest. While the smaller islands of Mykonos and Paxos offer stylish boutique accommodation. Plus, a wonderfully slow pace of life to adapt for a while.

In contrast, Greece is not only a great place to relax under the Easter Sun. If you want more excitement visit in early spring, for one of the most colourful festivals on the Greek calendar – The Apokries Carnival! Check when the carnival celebrations will happen before booking because the date changes yearly due to the start of Lent. Then throughout your holiday, you can embrace Greek culture by eating, drinking, and socialising with the locals. There will also be costume parties to attend and dancing. Plus, colorful parades to watch as they flow through the streets in the sunshine.
