Most of my research for this feature is for travel in June when most air fares and hotels can be half the price than in high season, the climate is good and the crowds have yet to appear. I rec- ommend, from personal experience that you call the hotel or villa a couple weeks prior to travel ,and negotiate a deal as many owners will want to fill up empty rooms. With an abundance of low cost flights, you are likely to get good deals in Europe. For long haul flights try www.skyscan- who track all the airlines including budget and give you the best value flights and car hire. Remember if you’re flying low budget that add ons can escalate the fare, so keep your luggage to a minimum (surprisingly possible) and check out the small print for credit card fees,

A sparkling diamond, this island is just 30 minutes by ferry from Ibiza but feels like another world. Some of the best beach- es in the europe and the most piercing blue water you’ll ever see.

taurants and have your taste buds explode with some of the best fish I’ve ever eaten. You can do this for less than £950 per person


Nearly touching the Turkish mainland, Kaste- lorizo was home to many Greek Australian ex- pats, many of whom now reside in Melbourne. Very peaceful and tran-

quil and although the island doesn’t have any sandy beaches, you can swim off the rocks near the delightful little har- bour. Total escapism.
