With the long Easter weekend firmly in our sights, this post is a celebration of four-day weekends. With a selection of some of the perfect places for a short getaway whether you like city breaks or sunny beaches, these destinations are always in vogue…
The picturesque city of Seville in southern Spain is a very popular destination during the summer months but it remains blissfully peaceful during the rest of the year. With a flight time of just 2.5 hours from the UK, it’s easy to get to and there’s no need to hire a car, either, as you can easily walk around the city. Stroll down streets lined with orange trees and feast on tapas at the traditional bars dotted around the city.
Don’t Miss: The Museo de Bellas Artes with artworks from Murillo and El Greco. When you’ve browsed the collections, take some time to relax in one of the serene courtyards that make up the museum’s tapestry.
Pack: A maxi dress for easy evening glamour and your Seville clutch for day-to-night style.
Truly one of the most colourful and vibrant cities you will ever visit, Marrakesh is packed with Arabian delights from day to night. Wander through the world-famous souks, admire the intricate architecture and soak up the heady cultural experience at the Djemaa El Fna square where street theatre and snake charmers are par for the course.
Don’t Miss: The local spa experience at a private hammam where you can relax and unwind without a care in the world.
Pack: Your camera to capture the dazzling sights and the Kalahari Beach Bag for a touch of exotic, African-inspired glamour.
The weather may be a little hit and miss in the UK at Easter but Brighton is a great place to visit for the weekend come rain or shine. Contrary to popular belief, it isn’t just for partygoers (although there is always a party to be had). The city is home to a treasure trove of boutique and independent shops, beautiful restaurants and cultural events. It’s also ideal for families with plenty of indoor and outdoor entertainment.
Don’t Miss: Indulge your inner child with candy floss on the pier followed by a long walk along the sea front with food and drink opportunities abound.
Pack: Brighton is a walking city – pack flip flops or trainers (depending on the time of year) to keep feet comfy, and your Brighton Beach Bag for a clean colour pop.
Sometimes all you need is a healthy dose of Vitamin D and Cape Verde offers warm temperatures and sunshine in abundance. With lovely weather (almost) all year round and an average of 25 degrees Celsius in April, it’s perfect for a relaxed Easter getaway.
Explore the underwater world with your snorkel, go sea fishing, sail away on an island cruise or take a mountain hike. Or just lie back on the golden sands and let the sun soak into your skin.
Don’t Miss: A 4x4 safari trip out in the Viana Desert where red rocks and sweeping dunes await.
Pack: Your sunglasses and suncream for the day, and the White Maze Bag for evenings out.
