A few luxury European resorts to tempt you…

Sian Pages – Travel Planner

Nothing beats a glamorous European beach getaway. Whether you want a sun-drenched escape to the Algarve coast, a dalliance in the azure of the Greek archipelagos, an Andalusian serenade on the Costa del Sol, or a lazy weekend in the Balearics, a holiday in Europe has you covered.

1.  Grand Hotel Timeo – Sicily

Legacy or Location? Here, there’s no compromise. Alongside views gazing out towards Mount Etna, the heritage of this private home-turned-hotel dates back to 1873 – having played host to literary greats Wilde, Lawrence and Capote.

2.  D Marmaris Bay – Turkey

The vibe here, is unspoilt, island location. East and West rendezvous within the rooms, where exotic accents meet sophisticated and minimalist interiors. Balconies with either rolling scenes of either mountain or ocean, whilst the suites allow access to Maris beach.

Cross-cultural dining options, from Greek to Japanese, all tastes are catered for and a plethora of water sports to keep even the most active entertained.

3.  Nobu Hotel – Ibiza

At the uber-chic resort, the night can be as young as you want it to be. This place has all the benefits of a large and lively resort, but you can also kick back on the private, white sandy beach.

After a lazy day spent lounging on the private beach, head to the White Isle’s Old Town at sunset for a glass of sangria in the marina.

4.  Canaves Oia Epitome – Santorini

Redressing the balance between opulence and groundedness, here, works from local artists adorn stone-clad walls. The only property on the island that has both sea and sunset views from all 24 villas. Rent an ATV and explore the island or try one of the breath-taking hikes.

5.  Pine Cliffs – Algarve

Set against a backdrop of pine forest and clifftop views, the stunning 72-hectare Pine Cliffs resort has several enclaves on the Portuguese Algarve.

This family-friendly resort is geared up to ensure you and the kids experience the ultimate Algarve holiday.
