Plan a Last Minute Escape to Soak Up Some Winter Sun

08th September, 2017
As summer slowly draws to an end, the temptation of booking a winter holiday may be playing on your mind more than ever. There are still plenty of months to go before we're graced with 2018, so why not make the most of the coming months and book a getaway? We've compiled a list of our favourites, and all with some special discount, too!


Nestled on a cliffside in southern Italy, the beautiful village of Positano is the perfect escape for some winter sun. Deemed the Amalfi Coast's most photogenic town, the sophisticated resort is, indeed, picturesque. The enchanting nature of the village is sure to captivate you on your next vacation from the second you start your trip. The cliffs have been decorated with an array of buildings, and the crescent bay at the base of the cliff is complemented by the blue hues of the ocean.

The magnificent Villa Barocca is the only place you should consider returning after a day of exploring. From the luxury furnishings to the private spa, it is the perfect place for some last-minute relaxation. With over 497 square meters, the villa houses up to nine people. Outside of the villa, however, the nearest shops are within walking distance, so when you've taken some time out on the terrace, you can meander in the village to grab a bite to eat. In addition to all that, Villa Barocca offers 50% off the remaining dates in October, so there's never been a better time to book! 


62 miles west of Nice is the luxurious St Tropez, home to the gorgeous L'Etoile Rose. On the French coast of the Mediterranean, the spot is a favourite among the A-listers, and it's easy to see why. The once-peaceful fishing village has now been transformed into a mooring for the millionaires, where the only thing splitting up the vast, turquoise waters is the white yachts bobbing in the harbour.

If you feel like you're ready for a last expansive trip in 2017, make sure it's in L'Etoile Rose. Positioned in the quaint village of La Garde-Freinet, the villa features a large, heated pool and a built-in charcoal barbecue. Inside, there is accommodation for eight, so whether you're planning a family holiday or a group getaway, you're sure to find the villa comfortable. With the Wi-Fi and a maid service included, as well as 25% off for their last few bookings of the year, L'Etoile Rose could be just the place for you.


The port city of Essaouira is one of Morocco's gems. On Morocco's Atlantic Coast, the town has yet to lose its traditional charm or culture that make it so special. Although the coastal wind can sometimes seem overwhelming while trying to relax on the beach, it's the avenues and whirling streets of the town that are the true landmarks that need visiting. If you are looking to spend some time in the water, Essaouira is a favourite amongst water sports enthusiasts thanks to the perfect conditions.

Whatever your reason for wanting to visit the Moroccan town, Riad Tamara is the ideal place for your escape. Perfectly located in the Old Town, the riad offers those who book a stay at a beautiful, private plunge pool and spectacular Moroccan decorations throughout. Booking Riad Tamara is an exemplary choice for a large group holiday, and as it can sleep 12 people, we are sure that you will have no difficulty finding enough people to fill it! For smaller parties, however, the Riad is still perfect and what better time to book than now? Currently, there is a special rate for the remainder of 2017, which means that groups of six or smaller can book the entire town villa for just £1085!


No matter what time of year it is, the French Riviera is the ideal place for a getaway. One of the most glamorous locations in Europe, the sumptuous towns of Cote D'Azur are sure to provide your next holiday with all the opulence you could possibly require. The town of Villefranche-sur-Mer is home to one of the most beautiful bays in the world and oozes charm and authenticity.

It is the charm of Villefranche that is replicated in Villa Royale. If you can manage to take your breath away from the breathtaking panoramic views over the Cap Ferrat, then you'll notice that the villa has recently been renovated to an exceptionally high standard. The location is convenient for everyone, with only four minutes separating you from the small port. If you're planning a large group retreat, then you'll be glad to know that Villa Royale not only includes the main house but also two guest houses too. For your next week's booking, which includes October, you can take 30% off your booking, making it the ideal time to book!
