Great getaways: Mallorca, Memphis, and Mauritius
Sunday 08 June 2014
June is a sublime time to be in the Balearic islands, with comfortable temperatures and minimal crowds. On 25 June, Classic Collection has a week-long option on Mallorca – the largest of the three-island chain – for £799pp. Based at the five-star Iberostar Son Antem, the package includes breakfast and Monarch flights from Gatwick (classic-collection.co.uk).
On 22 June, Hayes & Jarvis has an eight-night road trip that combines two of America's key musical cities for £1,299pp. Departing with Delta flights from Heathrow, the holiday includes car hire and a four-night stay in New Orleans at the Hilton Riverside, followed by four nights in Memphis at the Doubletree Downtown, both on a room-only basis (hayesandjarvis.co.uk).
In July and August, sea breezes roll over the east and south coasts of Mauritius, making it an ideal time for windsurfers to visit. For travel from 1-22 July, Travelbag has a seven-night deal at the five-star Heritage Le Telfair in Bel Ombre on the southern shore, with full-board meals and Emirates flights from Gatwick via Dubai for £1,349pp. Book by 14 July (travelbag.co.uk).
Wait until September and there's a week on the Greek Island of Kos for £599pp. The deal, with Inspired Luxury Escapes, includes a stay in a sea-view room at the Michaelangelo Hotel & Spa in Agios Fokas, with half-board meals and easyJet flights from Gatwick included (inspiredluxuryescapes.com).
