Follow the Celeb Path to Comporta, Portugal

Head down a dusty track along Herdade da Comporta, an expanse of coastline just an hour from busy Lisbon, and you could find any number of surprises. You will see solitary majestic villas - one reason why this stretch of sand in the rural Alentejo region has been compared to the Hamptons of the 1970s - or, like me, a sapphire-coloured expanse of lake with dragonflies dancing across its surface.

Take A French Alps Winter Ski Break

Enjoy Winter Scandinavian Style

What are you doing this evening? Bet they won't be as memorable as catching a glimpse of the magical Northern Lights after a day cross-country skiing through stunning scenery or after tackling a World Cup slalom in a frozen forest.  Unlike the Alps, Scandinavian countries can add more to your winter experience.  The snow here last for up to six months, and it offers more than a day on the piste, with some amazing adventures.

Drive The Dutch Flower Route

Amazingly, it’s just a four-hour drive on the A4 through Antwerp and north into the Netherlands to get to the start of the famous Dutch flower route. Flowers have long been the stuff of romantic gestures, but blooms are a big deal in the Netherlands, the country which has dominated the global flower trade since tulip mania caused the world’s first commodity boom here during the Dutch Golden Age.

European Night Out in Prague, Amsterdam and Hungary

Over the last decade, Prague has become a real favourite of Brits abroad looking for a great night out, whether it’s in the pubs and bars of the Old Town – popular with tourists – or the winding streets and secret cafes of the Lucerne Passage. Beer is incredibly cheap and consumed pretty much around the clock, so make sure to line your stomach in one of the city’s many schnitzel restaurants!
