Autumn sun and big savings for empty nesters
5 September 2009
Summer lingers longer in the Greek islands, making October holidays not only relaxing but also great value for couples whose kids have flown the nest, according to Olympic Holidays.
The locals on Rhodes boast of ‘300 days sunshine a year’ and the aptly-named Sun Beach Resort complex offers no less than three outdoor swimming pools between its two linked sites. There is a choice of restaurants from the poolside snack bar to stylish a la carte dining room.
A week’s half board at this four-star resort starting 10 October costs a bargain £329 per person – a reduction of £158 – based on two sharing a room with a garden view. Includes return Gatwick flights and transfers.
Five star service is on offer at Le Meridien Limassol Spa & Resort on idyllic Cyprus. Set in vast landscaped gardens leading to the sandy beach, and with a free-form lagoon-style pool complex, this well-loved hotel is a tranquil choice for discerning couples.
Fly on 10 October and pay only £765 per person for seven nights with complimentary half board, staying in a luxurious double-bedded room. This represents a saving of £517 per person on normal rates. Includes return Gatwick flights and transfers.
