My Expert Areas

I joined the Sovereign team after working abroad in different roles within the travel industry. I spent most of my time abroad in Spain and Cyprus, providing holiday makers with a high-end rep service and leading escorted holidays.

Most unusual travel moment

My most unusual travel moment would have to be approaching Venice. It was surreal sailing alongside the small speedboats and gondolas which fill the lagoon. It was an unforgettable moment. 

Favourite hidden gem

If you book a holiday to Crete, a visit to Samaria Gorge is a 'must-do'. It is a beautiful national park and has some exciting walking trails through the hills, forests and river beds. The aim here is to spot the 'Kri-Kri', an endangered wild goat that is very rarely seen.

Best meal

It's hard to put my finger on the best meal as I have had many, but a great place to eat is at the Adonis restaurant at the Athena Beach Hotel in Cyprus. It has a wonderful Mediterranean menu with a fantastic choice of local cuisine.

Top travel tip

Many of our hotels and destinations have lots of activities on offer, but it's not always easy to know which ones will be the most child friendly. For me, planning this was crucial for my family holidays. All of us in the Sovereign team have first-hand experience of our programme and many of us have children, so we know what makes the best family holidays. We are always more than happy to help find yours.

Favourite Sovereign hotel

As a mother I know how stressful holidays can be with little ones so I would highly recommend the Porto Elounda hotel in Crete. The amazing kids' club has something to offer for all with its array of sports, waterslides and creative classes such as handpicking and baking locally grown fresh herbs. They even offer spa treatments in their own dedicated children's wellness program - this went down especially well with my nine-year-old. Even all the restaurants offer a children's menu so parents can take full advantage of their extensive dine around programme.
