Posted By Jo MacGregor on 14 July 2014


With the half-term holiday falling in mid-October, this is the time to catch some autumnal sun and give your children a well-deserved break from their studies. And, for young families with babies or toddlers, the early weeks of October offer an ideal chance for a peaceful, out of season getaway without the rough and tumble of big kids playing nearby.

For a fantastic family holiday, fill out an enquiry form on the left and our family holiday experts will help create the perfect holiday for you...

If the darker days of autumn are starting to get you down, it’s not too late to find some sunshine in the Mediterranean. Head over to Cyprus for warm seas and quiet beaches – the perfect environment for young children and babies. October is also your last chance to enjoy some delightfully warm temperatures in Southern Europe.

Southern Europe is not the only place to go in October though – if you’re looking for even warmer temperatures, there are many places outside of Europe that offer sunny skies and balmy nights aplenty. Read on to discover the perfect, exclusively sourced destinations for you and your family this October.

Where to go 

There’s nothing more indulgent than travelling out of season. Whether you’re jetting off for the half-term break or searching for a quiet, sunny paradise, travelling in October always feels like a luxurious treat. To escape the dull October weather, head to sunny Southern European destinations like Sicily, the Algarveor Greece. Or if you want a more exciting experience, why not hop across the Med and explore the bustling markets of Marrakechor Casablanca? Dubaiand Omanare also brilliant options if you like it hot!
