As the nights slowly draw in and a distinct chill returns to the air, it can be tempting to leave the British winter behind and escape to the sunshine. And why not?
While Britain is shivering, some parts of the world are enjoying bright, warm sunshine; with some of those places not so far away, or out of reach when you choose Brittany Ferries Holidays
Exclusively for the winter season (November to April), Brittany Ferries’ long-stay winter sun holidays in Spain and Portugal offer incredible value. Discover a choice of quality accommodation, inclusive of all utilities – saving you money on heating – and your return ferry travel with your car – saving you money on steep rental fees.
Simply cruise overnight from Portsmouth or Plymouth to Santander or Bilbao. It’s a far more relaxing way to travel than flying, with cruise ferry services offering a choice of restaurants, bars, entertainment and comfortable en suite cabins. Better still, by taking your car, you’ll be free to pack all you need – from the all-important tea bags and essentials to creature comforts.
And with PETS Travel Scheme and some apartments welcoming pets, your best friend needn’t be left at home in the cold either.
From here, make your way south. You might even like to enjoy a night or more en route. From one night respites to luxurious stop overs, anything is possible with Brittany Ferries’ choice of handpicked hotels, all of which can be added to your booking.
4 weeks in the popular resort of Marbella at the Apartamentos El Porton start from just £512 per person (or £128 per week), with many apartments offering on-site amenities and leisure activities, including heated pools, gyms and spas.
Immerse yourself in local life, explore the countryside, or improve your handicap; you’ll find a choice of locations and resorts. From Portugal’s Algarve, with its first-class beaches, rich heritage and renowned golf courses, to the cosmopolitan and perhaps surprisingly scenic Costa del Sol. You may even want to venture somewhere a little different and discover the Costa de la Luz; a lesser known destination boasting the stunning ancient port city of Cadiz and, probably the most quintessential of all Spanish towns, Jeréz.
