Need to get away from it all outside the high season? A warm late summer in Europe can certainly be as nice as summer itself. There are some destinations with wonderfully warm weather in September and October. Whenever possible, I prefer to travel in the autumn, following the sun south. I seek out small-scale accommodations on the Mediterranean coast. Every morning, I’m greeted by the sun when I open my patio doors and a freshly made breakfast awaits me. There’s no nicer way to extend the summer.
And, even at home, the sun sometimesbreaks through in the late summer. This is the perfect time to stay at a hut on the heath, and to enjoy carefree moments in complete and utter privacy.
Once the peak of summer is over,far fewer travellers visit my European destinations. For those seeking a quieter holiday this is an ideal period to get some sun. In the autumn, you’ll always find a spot on the best terrace in that quaint fishing village, you can easily snap a picture at a popular tourist attraction without people getting in your way and when you go on a nature walk, you’ll have it all to yourself. If that isn't the ultimate feeling of freedom, I don't know what is.
A family holiday in the late summer is also possible during the autumn school holidays. Doesn’t a week away to a warmer place sound like music to your ears? The kids can have fun splashing about in the pool, while you retire to the shade with a good book.
Planning to spend a late summer at one of these destinations in 2022? Book your sun holiday in September or October now to guarantee peace and quiet, away from the crowds .
