Off the Beaten Track Europe Holidays
While Europe is popular for its Mediterranean beaches, wonderful cities like Paris, Milan and Madrid, and much visited country areas such as The Loire or the Black Forest, there are plenty of overlooked areas. If you need a holiday well off the beaten track far from the tourist trail, a secret beach or hidden valley, then check out these great Europe Holidays.
A former military base, Caprera Island off the coast of Sardinia boasts some of the finest secret beaches in Europe. This peaceful area offers wonderful pine forests, abandoned beaches and beautiful clear waters, great for swimming and snorkelling. Visitors can also visit the former home of Italian revolutionary Guiseppe Garibaldi. While no hotels are located on this peaceful island, there is a wide range of accommodation. The Hotel Cala di Volpe in Costa Smerelda offers luxury hospitality, artisanal architecture, a private beach and an exclusive golf course. Spring Breaks at this amazing hotel start from around €635 a night for a double room.
The Spanish province of Extremadura is one of the most remote regions of the country, and offers a quiet appeal. With many isolated valleys and hills, old world villages and sleep towns, this is a great place to visit to get away from it all. Colours of Spain can book superb holidays here in charming and rustic self-catering villas. The Sabino Alcantara property offers four double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a spacious living area with exposed brick. This property can be rented from as little as £123 per week.
So next time you are looking to book Europe holidays, try to look beyond the Costas and the big cities, and explore somewhere different.
