Savour the passion of Spain

Spain's sparkling capital, Madrid features a regal history and an awe inspiring collection of museums and galleries. After a satisfying day wandering the historic plazas or catching a game of football at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium, retire to your Madrid hotel and get ready to go again tomorrow. On the hand, settle into the beaches of Barcelona before hitting the bars, restaurants and clubs once the sun sets. There are chic hotels in Barcelona that offer a fantastic accommodation experience.

Accept Greece's hospitality with open arms

One of the great ancient cities, Athens has terrific ruins that deserve extra attention. And just because the sights are from a different era, doesn't mean the hotels in Athens are out dated. Once you've had your Athens fix, take a ferry into the Mediterranean, to admire the beauty of the Greek Islands. Crete is the largest of the Islands and one of the most beautiful. Trimmed by blue waters with scores of sparkling beaches, Crete has stunning ocean-view villas waiting for your check in.

Surround yourself with French opulence and sophistication

There's no mistaking the capital of France – the City of Light, the most visited place on the planet and home to the finest fashion designers in the world. There are plenty of accommodation options in Paris - from cosy one bedroom hotel rooms to palatial suites. Like a fine wine, France's fortified countryside can range from delicate to robust. In the southwest, Bordeaux is one of the most lauded wine regions in the world and has multiple Mercure and Novotel properties.
