Have you only got a few days for a break? Well that's fine we can help you pack as much or as little into a short space of time. We love a short break and are happy to advise on options whether its a new city experience you're looking for, a quick beach break or a specific activity. Some of our favourites our listed below.


You might expect to see an image of pasta bolognese or the famous towers of Garisenda and Asinelli, but Bologna and the region is also a great place to visit for car lovers with factories and museums for names such as Ferrari (Maranello), Maserati (Modena), Lamborghini (Sant'Agata Bolognese), Ducati (Bologna) and others. There's so much on offer with factory tours and show rooms perfect for any motorsport enthusiasts. And of course to get the balance right your could visit the world's largest food theme park at Fico Italy World where you can hire a tricycle to explore the makings of local gastronomy or back in the city take time to wander through the "porticos", piazzas and food markets. A perfect break for couples, groups, and families with older children. We'll help you choose the best accommodation and transport options to get the most out of your short break.

Troodos Mountains, Cyprus

Don’t be put off by a longer flight for a short break. Sometimes going a little further will give you the break you really need. Treat the journey as part of the break, and perhaps add extra legroom seats and speedy boarding for comfort if they’re an option, then open your holiday read, grab a drink and switch off as soon as possible. In fact switching off is what this break is all about as you head to the Troodos mountains in Cyprus for a retreat at the fabulous Casale Panayiotis. Step into the pace of traditional Cypriot life, staying in renovated rooms in traditional village cottages and filling your days wandering along local nature trails or learning about Halloumi making and other Cypriot cottage industries, or luxuriating in the award winning Myrianthouse Spa with a treatment or two, perhaps even a “vinotherapy” wine treatment! Enjoy locally sourced food in the restuarants where the focus is a “Cypriot food journey”. We’re sure that after this short retreat you’ll be totally invigorated and enriched and if you want some beach time too why not add a night or two in Paphos at the beautiful seaside hotels of Almyra or Annabelle seaside hotels before heading home.
