Good to go... Tirol, narrowboats, Dubai
Wednesday 30 March 2011
Change of scene
The Austrian Tirol transforms into a picture of edelweiss-dotted pastures once the snow has melted. And if hiking boots are more your thing than skis, consider VJV's "Going Going Tirol" break: £675 per person grants you a seven-night stay with breakfast in the town of Going at the four-star Dorfhotel Schnablwirt, a traditional hotel complete with sauna and steam room. Also included is return airfare departing on 22 May from Heathrow.
A narrow escape
If floating down picturesque canals and visiting local pubs sounds ideal, Waterways Holidays has some boating breaks to tempt. A week spent on the Farndale Valley narrowboat costs £848 for up to six people during April and May. A shorter three- or four-night cruise on the Blythe Valley narrowboat is £583. Jump on at Stratford-upon-Avon, then take the route to Tewkesbury or head to leafy Warwick. Book by 10 April.
A trip to the glitz and glamour of Dubai is available for £739 this week, courtesy of British Airways. The price includes a three-night stay at the five-star Hilton Jumeirah, along with breakfast and return airfare departing anytime in May from Heathrow. The hotel is located on Dubai's golden stretch of beaches and offers a choice of four different restaurants, a spa, fitness centre and pool. Book by 7 April.
