After what felt like forever, winter is finally giving way to the fresh joys of spring.
And what better way to mark the arrival of longer, lighter, lovelier days than by taking a well-deserved break?
Here’s the good news: you don’t have to go far to find your personal holiday heaven, since Europe is a diverse continent packed with intriguing destinations and unique retreats.
For example, glamping breaks take on new layers of luxury when spent in the grounds of an ancient estate in the heel of Italy’s ‘boot’. Here you can drift off under the stars in a pristine cotton tent, surrounded by unspoilt nature.
If you’re in need of a little childlike fun (and who isn’t?) then a Big Top-themed vintage wagon in the Andalucian hillside might be just the ticket… particularly when there’s an al fresco swimming pool to reflect that glorious spring sunshine!
Or how about bedding down in a sumptuous eco-cabin, a dreamy floating hut – or even a spa cabin with a chemical-free Nordic bath – nestled amongst the soothing French vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape?
These unique Euro-retreats are just the tip of the melting winter iceberg, as you’ll soon discover when you browse our fabulous list!
