Great getaways: Morocco September sun, upmarket India and Swiss bliss
Saturday 31 August 2013
Morocco is a good mid-haul destination for some September sun. Fleewinter has one deal, which includes a week’s stay at the Rebali Riads in the southern village of Sidi Kaouki on the Atlantic coast. The property has various pools, a tennis court and hammam, while each of the individual riads has a retractable sliding glass roof and kitchenette. The price is £238pp, based on two sharing, for stays throughout this month, including breakfast and transfers from Marrakech, but not flights (fleewinter.com).
See the sights of India in style. Bales Worldwide has a 13-night tour on 25 October which coincides with Diwali, the festival of lights. It takes in the holy city of Varanasi on the Ganges, the ruins of Fatehpur Sikri, the pink city of Jaipur and the lakeside city of Udaipur, as well as the Taj Mahal and Agra. The “Classic India” trip costs £2,345pp, including Virgin Atlantic flights from Heathrow to Delhi, accommodation, most meals and excursions (balesworldwide.com).
If it’s a short break you’re after, the five-star Rosa Alpina hotel in the Italian Dolomites has a three-night package for €470pp (£402) for stays until 22 September. This month, the mountain air should be crisp as the region readies itself for the first dusting of snow, making it an ideal time to head out hiking, biking and cycling – or simply cocoon yourself away at the hotel’s spa, where complimentary access is included. The package also comes with breakfast, a three-course dinner and free mountain bike rental. Flights are extra (rosalpina.it).
