With the long weekend upon us and schools out for the holidays, we have rounded up a few of our favourite destinations to discover this Easter.
Easter is a great time to visit Mallorca as it is quieter than the summer so there will no long queues for tourist attractions and the climate is more than pleasant with sunny days and an unlikely chance of rain. There are a number of charming hilltop towns and villages worth visiting like Deià, Arty Artà and Valldemossa, historical sites like the impressive Bellver Castle and La Seu Cathedral as well as the Miró Majorca Foundation if you’re an art afficionado. If you want a more ‘R & R’ vacation then head to a beach - there are 300 of them!
You may think you’ve missed the boat on skiing season, but Spring is a glorious time to hit the slopes with the family on the snowy Alps. The temperatures are milder so enjoy long lunches on the terrace in the sunshine. Val Thorens is great for beginners with its gentle pistes and has a lively ‘apres-ski’ scene, Tignes and Val d’sere are great for young families and has a great culinary experience, and Zermatt has breath-taking views and a fun Easter egg hunt in the village for the kids.
