Discover hotels and villas in off-the-beaten-path European destinations

You don’t need us to tell you Ibiza’s great in summer, or that St Tropez’s glamorous and Florence is all pretty and cobbly, but you might be looking for something a bit further from the beaten path…

These hotels may not be in the most obvious summer-break locations, but they're all brimming with holiday goodness, with beaches and/or pools, sunshine ago-go and rooms available over the next two months. Plus, prices (and crowds) drop off in September, so if you want to avoid the school-holiday horde and get away while the weather’s still good, here’s your chance.
