Luxury European Holidays

A mosaic of culture and colour


Europe is a tough place to pin down. An extremely diverse continent, it has no end of secrets to explore – even if you’ve lived here your whole life. There’s ancient cities that laid the groundwork of civilisation, incredible natural wonders and some of the world’s best beach destinations. Heavyweight players like Greece and Spain are the oldest holiday destinations, attracting more than their fair share of superfans to their gorgeous beaches and charming towns and cities.

Then you’ve got the likes of Italy, a world leader in art and culture with some of the world’s finest cuisine – perfect city break material. Looking for something a little different? Up-and-comer Croatia is vying for the crown with its glorious un-spoilt beaches and photogenic terracotta towns.

Greece holidays

Wherever you choose to stay, you won't be short of some incredible sights. Wander through the narrow streets of Rhodes Town, visit the archaeological sites in the ancient Peloponnese, explore Crete's natural gorges or photograph the fiery sunsets on Santorini.

I used to live in Spain, so I know there is much more to Andalucía than just the sunny Costa del Sol. You can really get the sense of the region by extending your beach holiday and hiring a car. We've put together an eight-day itinerary showcasing the best of the area, staying each night in a unique historical house known as a Parador. Anything from a former palace to an ancient convent or a medieval castle, these historic buildings offer great locations and plenty of charm alongside modern facilities and fabulous dining.

I’ve travelled all over Greece, but my favourite island has to be Skiathos – it’s just beautiful. If you’re undecided where to go, ask us about multi-centre or island-hopping holidays so you can explore more of Greece.
