Southern Europe

One word says it all: diversity. For skiers, the Alps are a magnificent powder-white playground, whilst the Mediterranean shimmers in the sun, its rolling hills and citrus groves awaiting those looking for a peaceful retreat. Meanwhile southern Europe’s cities promise culture and romance, with new discoveries to be made around every corner.

From the snowy mountains of the Alps to the balmy beaches of the Mediterranean, southern Europe has it all, with plenty of culture and colour in between. Relaxing in the hot tub of your ski chalet, the sun setting beyond a jagged mountain horizon, you’ll find it almost impossible to imagine that a few months later, you could be basking in the sun by your private villa pool, admiring the azure waters of the Mediterranean. Or why not return to the Alps in the summer - ideal for active and adventurous holidays, the mountains make for a fantastic year-round destination. There are great city escapes to be had here too, from the bright lights of Paris to the quirky architecture of Barcelona. Away from the cities the countryside beckons, its hills peppered with vineyards alongside the glittering coastlines. Wherever you choose, look forward to fabulous food, as diverse and enticing as the continent itself.
