A week away to break up the school term feels like a genuine treat. Temperatures are gentler and the best attractions and beaches much less crowded.
At this time of year, Mallorca’s spacious family villas come into their own with their magnificent gardens and fantastic locations, whilst the idyllic Greek Islands bask in the kind of weather that’s perfect for hiring a boat and going exploring.
Turkey is our warmest destination in May, with the hospitality to match, and its magnificent ruins, walking trails and friendly restaurants are even easier to explore before the busier peak season. And then there’s unspoilt Corsica, for the quintessential beach holiday with a truly elegant spin.
