We all love a good holiday especially at this time of year when the two weeks of sunshine we get in the UK are over. It's always good to get away for a bit whether that's to go explore a country taking in the sites of different towns and cities or simply staying by the pool for a relaxing stress free week we all need a break from life from time to time. It can be hard finding the right destination for you but hopefully we can convince you to visit one of these places as they are both beautiful and offer a lot to do.
