Beach vacations closer to home

Wonderful beaches and bright blue seas are just a 3-hour flight from the UK. Ideal for families and just as rewarding for couples, our portfolio features a broad range of luxury properties a stone's throw from the ocean. 

You don't have to travel very far to find beautiful beaches, cobalt blue waters and balmy temperatures. Some of the most exquisite white sands can be found in the Mediterranean, and even off the coast of Africa on the islands of Tenerife and Gran Canaria, just a 4.5hr flight away.

Taking a beach vacation relatively close to home is the perfect way to escape from everyday life for a while, but with minimal travel and no jet-lag. For these reasons, our short-haul beach vacations are especially popular with families. We offer a range of family-friendly luxury resorts and hotels, many with children's clubs and other childcare services. Our Scott Dunn villas in Mallorca are another great option for families, where, as well as a dedicated chef and host, guests also have the option of a private nanny.

For older children, watersports, mountain-biking and plenty of other activities can be enjoyed at lots of our short-haul destinations. Those traveling without children also have a range of options across all our short-haul beach destinations, from island-hopping in Greece to basking in the Croatian sun.

Our travel specialists can advise on which properties are best for couples, and which are perfectly set up to welcome families. As everything we do is customized, we can arrange almost anything using our expert local knowledge of every gorgeous beach and luxurious property featured in our portfolio.
