Good to go: skiing, Italy, Sri Lanka
Wednesday 02 March 2011
With fresh snow falling across the Alps, conditions are at last improving for skiers in Europe. Those willing to hold out towards the end of the season will be rewarded with keen prices, too. Skipad is offering a week's stay in Les Arcs from £360 per person, departing 26 March. The price includes catered accommodation at Chalet Millerette, which sleeps up to nine guests. Travel to Les Arcs, lift passes and equipment hire are all extra.
Daffodils are starting to come through and the days are getting longer. With spring on the horizon, Europe is an appealing prospect, and even more so with discounted holidays in Italy. Citalia is offering three nights in Florence for £199 per person at the three-star San Giorgio Hotel with flights from Gatwick on 30 March. Three nights in Rome from 13 March costs £249 and a week's half board in Puglia costs £479 with flights on 30 March.
Bank holiday bargain
If you have booked time off for the Easter and Royal wedding bank holiday weekends but have yet to book a holiday, then consider Hayes and Jarvis's discounted offers over the period. A one-week holiday in Sri Lanka departing Friday 22 April costs £995 per person, which includes a week's all-inclusive accommodation at the three-star Club Bentota, Gulf Air flights from Heathrow via Bahrain, and transfers.
