Last Minute Summer 2017 Escapes

With summer currently MIA, a severe bout of daydreamania is sweeping the country - the tendency to stare aimlessly into space and drift off into a hazy stupor awash with images of clear azure waters, endless sandy beaches, picturesque towns and sun-drenched hillsides. The only known cure? A last-minute summer getaway. Lucky for you, summer holiday glory is but a short hop away with many of our favourite European destinations having some great last-minute availability. Here are a few of our favourites…

Mention of Summer in the Mediterranean generally conjures images of endless stretches of sandy beach, hazy sunny days, olive-scented air and sun-kissed skin.

Not to mention that scattered throughout are exquisite relics of past inhabitants, with everyone from the Ottomans to the Romans, Greeks and even Napoleon having had a bite of the (quite delicious) Mediterranean cherry. So if it's on your holiday list this summer, here are a few of our favourite alternative Mediterranean marvels…
