Casa Caballito de Mar, Almeria, Spain

This place is full of charm and character, reflecting the personalities of your hosts at this intimate B&B in the hills 20 minutes from the lovely coastline near Almeria. Just two suites, each with private terraces (perfect for soaking up the rays), means you feel sequestered away but there’s also plenty to do to get you out the door.

Nardosalento Boutique Apartments, Puglia, Italy

With up to 15% off for Further Afield travellers this September and October a stay at these stunningly designed apartments and houses is even more enticing than usual. In the heart of Nardo, Puglia, a fascinating and beautiful Baroque town, there are also beaches nearby which are much quieter this time of year. Find out more

Le Domaine de Monteils, Languedoc, France

Another great saving! Stay with Frederic and Richard this October (or November) and enjoy the last rays of summer. Each of these gites are also lovely enough to mean that you won’t mind too much if it does rain as you can chill out at home – especially so if you book the lastest addition, Thai style Villa Oceane.

Attico Partenopeo; Naples, Italy

Naples is a year round city destination, but just after the intense heat of summer is a fab time to visit. Wander the piazzas, sample the cafe culture the Italians are famous for plus of course the incredible cuisine. Attico Partenopeo is in the heart of the city, with a wonderful terrace, yet it’s also close to the harbour and beaches. Find out more

Molino Rio Alajar, Huelva, Spain

So this one is really just about finding a different pace of life. Deep in one of Spain’s largest natural parks, these stone cottages are simple and just incredibly tranquil. There is a pool and tennis court and it’s an area full of fantastic walks and activities, but also light filled cottages and sunny private terraces. Heaven. Find out more

Saccharum Resort, Madeira, Portugal

This option is a proper “hotel” experience with restaurants, spa, roof top bars and an amazing infinity pool. The hotel also has a private beach out front. The interiors are modern, stylish and bright and the views lovely. Further Afield travellers get a free pass to said spa to add to the feeling of total relaxation. Find out more

Cortijo El Sarmiento, Almeria, Spain

Trulli Roccia, Puglia, Italy

Another Italian option, but this time in rolling olive groves, surrounded by stunning scenery. The house is comfortable and welcoming with lovely gardens and a pool. Head out and there are historic and picturesque hilltop towns to explore – and to buy up the toppings for the pizzas you can bake in the outdoor oven.  Find out more

The Luminares, Lisbon, Portugal

Another city break, but this time in fun and funky Lisbon. The Lumiares is in the Bairro Alto district of the city, which is renowned for its bohemian, arty vibe. The hotel reflects this, but with an added edge or luxury and style. 10% off for Further Afield travellers too! Find out more

Little Stone House, Tarifa, Spain

It’s difficult to put into words how lovely a walk on the wide, wild and sandy beaches near Tarifa can be this time of year. Clear the head on deserted coastline or explore ancient Tarifa itself, cocooned within its stone city walls, before heading home to this stunning house high on the hill with views across to Morocco.

White Water Farm, Cape Town, South Africa

This time the journey might take longer (although on the same time zone so no nasty jet lag) but it’s summer in South Africa! Alex and Rob have created an oasis on their farm less than two hours from Cape Town. Beautiful grounds and pool, comfy rooms and a restaurant serving home grown cuisine. Find out more
