Our 2017 Summer Holiday Picks

The unnervingly mild weather of the last couple of weeks (before we all got blown away by Storm Doris) has brought us out of hibernation and dreaming of sunnier times (and climes). It's true that once we Brits get the merest whiff of warmth, summer is pretty much all we can think about. And finding the perfect summer holiday destination is absolutely mission critical; sunshine, great food and an envy-inducing tan are all non-negotiables. Lucky for you we have the inside track on all the best destinations, hotels and activities, whether you want to simply flop on the beach, explore a new culture or spy some serious safari game…

Five Favourite Hotels in Italy

Luxury, style, exquisite landscapes and, of course, delicious food - Italy is unbeatable. From the romantic undulating Tuscan hills evoking images of woody wine cellars and rows of olive trees, to the sensational Amalfi coast, a source of inspiration for Dolce and Gabanna's fantastical prints, we have the country sussed and know the best hotels to showcase the finest that Italy has to offer. Here we have picked the showstoppers that have made us think twice about exploring outside the hotel doors.

Stylish Luxury Family Holidays in Sicily

Having been lucky enough to travel throughout Europe with my job, I do sometimes worry that the "wow" factor will be lost on me. Truth be told, sometimes it does all blur into a haze of delectable food and crazily comfortable pillows. Sicily however, was rather different. It isn't the well-manicured island that I was expecting with perfectly proportioned olive trees standing to attention; it has much more character and is positively bursting with flavour. The Italians, Greeks, Arabs and even Spaniards have juggled ownership of the island and you can feel these different influences in not only its architecture but in the food and general attitude of the Sicilian people. It is an absolutely perfect family holiday destination and this is how to do an elegant Sicilian family holiday

Late Summer Sun

If you've not managed to get away this summer and you're tiring of sun-kissed colleagues and friends, September and October are perfect months to soak up some late summer sun. Whether you want to jet off to somewhere in Europe for a long weekend or fly and flop further afield, we can arrange it all. Maybe you've already had your fix of vitamin D this summer and just fancy topping up your glow? Who knows…what we do know are the destinations that will make perfect SUNNY getaways.

What a wonderful company you are!
