Are you celebrating a landmark birthday or anniversary? Have you finally managed to get everyone to commit to a long overdue group holiday? If so, you may be considering possible destinations. If you’re looking for inspiration, here are some fantastic ideas.
Home to gourmet cuisine, quiet beaches and chic cities, France is an excellent choice for group travel. Rent an apartment on the beach in Nice, or a rustic farmhouse in rural Brittany. Hire a car and visit charming towns and villages. Tour the vineyards and learn how to taste wine like the professionals. Sample the local delicacies and learn the lingo. Spend lazy days playing board games or splashing around in the pool. Or indulge your cultural side with a visit to local museums and galleries. France offers a wonderful combination of modern city slicking and traditional country life. Whether you head to Paris en masse, or you hide away in a hamlet, you’re sure to have a fabulous time.

If you’re looking for a breathtakingly beautiful holiday spot, look no further than Santorini. This jewel of the Aegean Sea is an idyllic base for a relaxing escape with friends or family. Bursting with charm and character, Santorini has plenty to keep you entertained. You can spend your days at the beach or follow the example of the locals and enjoy a leisurely afternoon indulging in meze. Take some cooking lessons and get involved in traditional Greek nights. Dance, drink and dine in style. Visit the hilltop village of Oia for the best views of the infamous whitewashed houses and blue-domed churches. There are plenty of hotels on offer, but if you’re looking for an exclusive hideaway, look for villas in Santorini. If you have a spare day, why not catch the ferry over to Crete? From the port of Heraklion, you can visit Hersonissos, Agios Nikolaos and Elounda.
Fancy a taste of the good life? If you plan to relax in the countryside and spend your days sunbathing, visiting quaint towns or eating out, Italy is an excellent choice. Escape to Tuscany for a restful rural break, or hire a villa by the sea in Sorrento. Explore the cuisine, visit the famous boutiques, and enjoy the varied landscapes. Whether you’re organising a summer holiday, or you’re looking for a winter ski break, Italy could be the perfect option.
