Good to go: Mallorca, Greece, Portugal
Wednesday 20 July 2011
Mallorca tempts at any time of year, but especially when the crowds of high summer disperse. EasyJet Holidays has a seven-night stay at the Hotel Blue Sea Don Jaime in the east coast resort of Cala Millor for £211.69 per person, including breakfast and return flights from Stansted to Palma on 6 September. The simple hotel is close to the resort's main beach and restaurants, while quieter bays along the Costa de los Pinos are within easy reach. holidays.easyjet.com
Greece's financial woes have led to a fall in holiday prices, including to enticing destinations such as Crete (pictured). Direct Holidays has a week-long stay at the self-catering Artemis Apartments in Gouves on the northern coast for £336 per person, which includes transfers and return Thomas Cook Airlines flights from Gatwick to Heraklion on 19 August. www.directholidays.co.uk
One Off Places has reduced the price on several of its properties in Portugal for select summer dates. Casa do Forno is one such option. Located in the central Algarve, the one-bedroom property has a pool, hot tub and Jacuzzi. Outside, there's a terrace, which looks out across rugged countryside. Book the for the week of 24–31 August and pay £364; travel is not included. www.oneoffplaces.co.uk
