Stre-e-e-etch Summer A Little Further

Looking for a sneaky late summer break where you can get some warm sunshine without having to fly half way round the world?

Looking for a sneaky late summer break where you can get some warm sunshine without having to fly half way round the world? We’ve taken a look at the weather charts – and the travel brochures – to put together a tempting selection of destinations where you’ll hopefully find warm, sunny days guaranteed to do you a power of good!

If you want to make your own selection, then October is still going to be very warm in Cyprus, Turkey, Morocco, southern Italy, Greece and Egypt’s Red Sea resorts, as well as on the Canary Islands and Madeira. Tunisia, Spain’s Costa del Sol and the islands of Malta, Sicily, Sardinia and Corsica generally have lovely warm weather right through to the end of October.

Our selection includes everything from well-priced little apartments through to elegant luxurious resorts. Most are less than four hours’ flight from the UK 9and there’s even an option to go by train!). Hopefully, then, there’s something perfect for you.

The Case di Tindari estate in north-east Sicily is a short drive from the coast and the archaeological site of Tindari but also within easy reach of the Nebrodi mountains, Sicily’s largest national park and a gastronomic high spot in the autumn. Cottages are set amongst rosemary scented pathways framed by olive and oak trees slung with hammocks and there is a shared 18m infinity pool with a view over the Tyrrhenian coast and the Tindari Sanctuary. Each of the cottages has its own bougainvillea-framed terrace and high-quality spacious interiors with antique painted wood furniture and terracotta flooring.
