WIND-FUELLED FUN IN ESSAOUIRA: calling all windsurfers and kitesurfers!
£585 for 7 nights in a newly refurbished riad departing November 14 Looking for some high-octane, wind-fuelled adventure and a great holiday property? Then head to Essaouira also known as the windy city. With its sweeping sandy bay and a backdrop of wooded hills this is a stunning location and the artistic city with its medina and souks is a marvel to explore.

Stay at Der Ettouahen, a newly refurbished riad in the heart of the medina, just 7 minutes’ walk from the beach. Dar Ettouahen is an elegant, light and airy riad, with traditional stone arches, tadelakt (marble-dust walled) bathrooms, tiled floors, high thuya wood ceilings and a open log fireplace. On the roof is a large sheltered terrace with views over the medina, and from a second smaller upper terrace, you can look out to the sea and watch the waves crashing on the rocks below..

Essaouira is a small historic fishing port on the Atlantic coast of Morocco, renowned for its laid-back and friendly atmosphere, souks stuffed full of local art and craftwork as well as local produce, its long sandy beach and its well-preserved old walled medina, named by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 2001. The weather is temperate and warm year-round and the bracing sea winds make it an attractive spot for windsurfing. The beach is also home to daily local football and basket ball games and at the south end are the ruins of Borj el-Berod, mythically said to have been the inspiration for Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Castles made of sand’.

£615 for 7 nights in a villa in the sleepy village of Cressian in the heart of the wine region, departing November 6 Stay at the Villa Karli in the sleepy village of Creissan, which boasts four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a private pool.  The villa is ideally located for days at the beach, swimming, golf, cycling, canoeing, sailing, horse riding, walking, tennis, wine tasting, French cuisine, sightseeing, canal trips or if you prefer, you can just relax at home; sampling the local wines & produce, dining on one of the terraces, lazing about in the gardens or enjoying a dip in the pool.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region is the heartland of France’s wine region and is dominated by 740,300 acres of vineyards, three times the combined area of the vineyards in Bordeaux. Bordered by the huge peaks of the Pyrenees, the heavily perfumed herb filled fields of Provence and the rugged landscape of the mountains and gorges of the Massif Central, the luscious Languedoc-Roussillon region of France is fast taking over as France's most popular holiday destination.

£619 for 7 nights in a villa with pool just 2 miles from Disney, departing November 6 Relive your childhood with a trip to the Florida theme parks with your friends!
