Great getaways: Culinary adventure through Morocco; Etihad seat sale; luxury Caribbean; White Christmas
Saturday 19 October 2013
Fleewinter has a week-long culinary adventure through Morocco this autumn for £895pp. The tour visits the souks of Essaouira and Marrakech, taking in cooking demonstrations and tasting sessions, with stops in Berber villages and fine-dining restaurants along the way. The holiday departs 12 or 19 November with easyJet flights from Gatwick to Marrakech, transfers, seven nights’ B&B, three lunches and two dinners (fleewinter.com).
The latest airline to launch an autumn seat sale is Etihad. Book before 25 October for travel in November. Fares from Heathrow to its hub in Abu Dhabi (with easy ground connections to Dubai) cost £419 return, but you get better value by going further – such as Bangkok (£455), Kuala Lumpur (£535), and Sydney or Melbourne (both £755) (etihad.com).
Western & Oriental is offering a week at the five-star Calabash Cove hotel in Saint Lucia for £1,445pp, including non-stop British Airways flights from Gatwick. It includes breakfast, transfers and $200 resort credit per room. The hotel sits on a secluded white-sand beach with views across to the island of Martinique. Book by 31 October, travel before 30 November (westernoriental.com).
Inghams offers the chance to spend Christmas Day on the slopes of Austria for £699pp. The price includes Monarch flights from Gatwick to Innsbruck on 21 December, with transfers to the Tyrolean resort of Kirchberg for a week’s half-board stay at the three-star Hotel Bechlwirt, which has an apres-ski bar and spa (inghams.co.uk).
