Travel challenge: A Croatian island holiday
Saturday 29 May 2010
Every week we invite competing companies to give us their best deal for a specific holiday.
Today: a week's holiday in the Croatian archipelago. Prices are for two people, with holidays departing in late June.
1,048: Kolocep, Elafiti islands
Includes flights from Luton to Dubrovnik on 26 June, road and ferry transfers and B&B at the three-star Hotel Villas Kolocep.
"Croatia's Kolocep island, the smallest of the Elafiti islands, is completely car-free, has just one hotel, the Hotel Villas Kolocep, and a population of less than 150 inhabitants. Combined with its unspoilt landscape, it makes for very good walking and cycling opportunities. The island also has one of the few sandy beaches in Croatia," says Michelle Amor of Hidden Croatia (0844 477 9999; hiddencroatia.co.uk ).
510: Losinj, Cres-Losinj archipelago
Includes midweek Dover-Calais car ferry crossing and accommodation starting 26 June at Camping Poljana in a fully-equipped Fiji 1 mobile home.
"Camping Poljana is situated on the narrowest point of the Losinj isle in Croatia and is a lovely, top-class campsite with facilities including tennis, table tennis, playground, football pitch, cycle hire, bar, take-away and restaurant. There are also pebble beaches on both sides of the campsite and watersports, such as sailing and snorkelling, available," says Val Artley of Vacansoleil (0333 700 5050; vacansoleil.co.uk ).
598: Korcula, Dalmatian archipelago
Includes flights from Manchester to Dubrovnik on 27 June, transfers and half- board at the three-star Hotel Bon Repos. "Delightfully situated in the quiet 'Bay of Shells' some 3km from the town of Korcula, the hotel offers plenty of activities and two beautiful pebble and sandy beaches nearby. This is the perfect getaway for couples," says Rupert Diggins at Balkan Holidays (0845 520 1263; balkanholidays.co.uk ).
