Last-Minute Easter Travel Ideas

Spring is slowly arriving. The winter holiday season has just ended and the Easter holidays are coming soon. It’s time for sunshine, flowering landscapes and private retreats in Southern Europe.

Easter time is best spent with family, surrounded by spring flowers, in a stunning destination that’s a lot warmer than home. Here are seven awesome last-minute ideas.

Villa Agostoi, Tuscany

Is this your Easter home near Siena?

Where better to dine and drink well than the heart of Tuscany? Villa Agostoli is surrounded by rolling hills and lush vineyards, a private retreat with five bedrooms and private concierge.

There’s sunshine waiting for you this Easter.

Prefer a more romantic Easter trip just for two? Then try Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco. Or Castello di Casole, where you’ll receive a complimentary upgrade and hotel credits thanks to our Bellini Club membership.

Villa Roze, Basque Country

On the beach, on the Basque coast. Are you ready to explore?

Need an Easter Holiday?

A seaside getaway in French Basque, this supreme seven-bedroom villa has a backdrop of ocean waves and Basque culture. It’s ideal for families and the beach is practically empty at this time of year.

Modern Basque culture waits for you at Akelarre this Easter.

Prefer to explore Spanish Basque. Akelarre Relais & Châteaux is a boutique hotel with lots of privacy on the coast. Or for Bello Epoque and the glamour of San Sebastian try Hotel Maria Cristina.

Riad Azca, Marrakech

Morocco is famous for its “riads”, stylish properties full of art and colour.

Morocco has just reopened after the pandemic (for vaccinated travellers with a negative PCR test) and Marrakech will give you lots of Eastern sunshine. Explore the desert dunes and evocative souks, then come home for a swim in the pool at Riad Azca.

With both Moorish charm and contemporary styling this seven-bedroom riad is ideal for groups of friends, especially thanks to the oversized bedrooms.

Le Pigeonnier, Provence

Where do you find the Easter eggs?

Where better than Provence for an Easter egg hunt. Hide the eggs in the vast grounds of this countrywide estate, where you’ll find all the charm of Provence.

Did you know there are direct flights here from Prague? Le Pigeonnier provides a holiday home for up to 12 people. Best enjoyed after some truffle hunting or a romantic horseback ride.

Villa Rocha, Algarve

Looking for a sunny oceanfront escape this Easter. Here’s Villa Rocha.

Easter is a perfect time of year for the Algarve. It really feels like the summer holidays come early here. Make the most of the Algarve coast at Villa Rocha, an oasis of peace with a beachfront location.

We love Martinhal Sagres for family holidays.

It’s good for ten guests. If you’re not that many then we recommend Martinhal Sagres Family Resort, one of the best and most laid-back family resorts anywhere in Europe.

Chateau Lalage, Normandy

A classic chateau in a surprisingly location. Is this your Easter holiday sorted?

Normandy doesn’t have consistent beach weather in April, but it does make for a lovely change of scenery. With its romantic and spacious rooms, Chateau Lalage is a cosy ten-bedroom chateau available for less than €10,000 per week.

If you’re just two people, try Saint Simeon instead.

Yes, we can’t believe the price either – this is an exceptional place to stay. If ten bedrooms seems too big, try Le Domaine d’Ablon, Chateau La Cheneviere or La Ferme Saint Simeon. Not sure about Normandy? Read why it’s our #6 travel trend for 2022.

Balearic Islands

Easter is a great time to explore these islands free of crowds.

Ibiza and Mallorca are best known for their summer season. When it’s sweltering hot and very busy. Easter is a great alternative. Warm weather, no crowds, cheaper rates and immense islands to explore.

Six Senses Ibiza is a stunning new property on the White Isle

Did you know you can rent a castle for an Easter trip to Mallorca? It’s one selection in our pick of the best Mallorca villa rentals. For Ibiza we recommend the newly opened Six Senses Ibiza Portinax.
