Escape the crowds of the southern Costas – instead explore Spain’s rugged northern coast. It’s known as Green Spain thanks to its lush meadows and forests, and there are long, sandy beaches too.
Try holidaying on the southern Greek peninsula at Nafplion, a pretty fishing village with a life beyond tourism. It was once the Greek capital and has a Venetian fortress, museums, beaches and more.
Instead of Florida try New Orleans, a fascinating city with a relaxed pace of life that’s given it the nickname the Big Easy. But if you’re a country music fan then Nashville is another great alternative.
Swap the Cote d’Azur hotspots of St Tropez and Nice for Biarritz on the Atlantic coast and Bordeaux in easy reach of the coast.
