Where would you like to go - July!

Example - 7 day break

Austrian Alps:

With fresh mountain air and a very comfortable 25C, why not visit the glorious mountains instead of that typical beach break and dare to be different? Try a bit of light climbing or a trip in a cable car, the views will be stupendous.

How about Zip-lining or canyoning and swimming in crystal clear mountain pools.

Austrian Ski resorts cater enormously for the summer visitors too, where you can hike on the winter skiing pistes. There may be some great deals to be had! For the more adventurous why not stay in one of the network of huts to sleep in the middle of the mountains!

Don’t forget to throw in a visit to the beautiful cities of Salzburg and Innsbruck in the Austrian Tyrol for some sightseeing and shopping as well as sampling the Austrian Culture.

Example, City Break (3 days)

Copenhagen, Denmark:

Copenhagen is a busy, buzzy city in July! After what is usually a harsh, cold winter the city residents flock to the parks and pavement cafes to make hay while the sun shines, with average temperatures of around 20C.

Visit Tivoli Gardens and have a go on the rides, check out the street-food market at Paper Island. Try a traditional ‘gammeldags’ ice cream with whipped cream, jam and choc covered marshmallows at the local Amager Beach.

Remember to visit the sights too at Slotholmen and Nyhavn harbours. Also the shopping experience at Torvehallerne market and Strogert is not to be missed.

Example Two Week Break

Dordogne, France:

Glorious summers await here in this adorable area of southwest France, with temperatures vying between 25-30C. Hire a car and see as much of this amazing area as you can! Drive down meandering roads passed fine turreted châteaux, seek out ancient cave art and find some fantastic mouth-watering markets as you go.

Early July is the best time to visit, to avoid the French School holidays.

Stay in a rustic Gite and wile away summer evenings in the pool and have a BBQ with locally bought produce, not forgetting the wine of course!

A must see, is the rock art of Lascaux and Font-de Gaume, but book tickets in advance to avoid queues. Perigord Noir is the place to be for outstanding Castles, Caves and villages. Perigord Pourpe is where you will find Bergerac and other fantastic medieval bastide towns.

Give me a call. It's not too late to book your 2017 summer break xxx
