Summer holidays are what we all wait for, we can agree on that. But once we start stepping out of winter, once the days are longer, then we all want to rush out into the sunshine. And some destinations are just more pleasant in spring than in summer; just the thought of visiting Seville in August is enough to put anyone off history altogether.
April is a fabulous month to take a holiday. A few days off to unwind or the full-blown two weeks according to the children’s school holidays? Weather at home may not be great, and we have many options to offer you.
Three of our best reasons to go on holiday in April:
Better prices: whichever way you turn it and however pleasant it is to go on holiday in April, it is still not the classic summer high season. This is the only reason why you’ll get a better deal, otherwise it’s the same great quality houses!
Good weather: As we’ve said, sometimes dragging teenagers in forty-degree heat to convince them of our historical heritage is painful for everyone. Why not combine both culture and relaxation? Only in spring!
Less tourists: There are simply always less people in spring than summer so yes, the streets can be yours, and no need to peer between shoulders for sights or fight for a corner of the sandy beach you’ve been wanting to lie on.
And for those of you looking to combine holidays and sports, trekking across the Italian hills or cycling through French natural reserves, then April is a must.
From Dordogne to Provence, April enjoys everything summer has to offer, with about a ten-degree difference. Visit historical sites and local markets, and then relax in your private villa with a heated swimming pool at the end of the day. Whichever region you choose, from the coastal Riviera to the secluded arrière-pays in Provence, you will not have a dull moment!
Portugal enjoys great weather all year around. Algarve is the southernmost tip of Europe alongside the south of Spain, and you can travel and discover Lisbon and south of the capital without the swarms of tourists. Enjoy your villa in Sintra or your swimming pool in Santarém and take a break from everything.
The ultimate April destination. Enjoy a pre-summer getaway on the Costa del Sol, travel around Andalusia because temperatures will allow it, rent a glamourous house with a heated swimming pool at a lower price and bask in luxury on the Costa Blanca. Spain has a lot to offer at any season, and spring is definitely a great deal!
April in Morocco feels like summer to us. Breezy and pleasant, without the scorching heat. Go exotic and rent your holiday villa with services and a car and a driver and a step away from the Atlantic Ocean, with your private swimming pool of course. A dream!
Geography will tell you that while it’s still cold at home, the Italians are already enjoying the sun on their skin, having coffee on piazzas and April is no exception to this rule all over Italy. Discover the various historical sites then enjoy a glass of Chianti on your terrace with a view of the hills in Tuscany. Or Le Marche. Your holiday home with a private swimming pool is definitely a great plan. And don’t forget Sicily!
