A few juicy little deals for a rainy afternoon….

If you’re someone who doesn’t have to book your summer holiday during school holidays, then read on!  I have three fabulous deals for people wanting to holiday either with pre school children, or without children at all.  If you want to get a group of friends and / or family together, then go in June or September, rather than July & August, and you will save yourself a fortune!

Villa La Lavande is a four bedroom retreat in the Cote D’Azur.  It has huge gardens, several terraces, a private heated pool, sea and mountain views.  The accommodation is spacious and stylish, and the setting is peaceful, yet you are just 20 minutes from the bars and beaches of Cannes.

Or consider this exquisite four bedroom villa on the Greek island of Corfu.  Again, panoramic sea and mountain views, a private pool, several terraces, nestled in the olive groves under Mount Pantokrator.  It sleeps up to 8 people in four spacious bedrooms, and is just a couple of miles from the gorgeous coastline.
