/ Good last minute holiday deal, help!
Where should i go to find one? Im not a very experienced foreign holiday maker.
Croatia, fly to Dubrovnik, get ferry up coast to hvar brac etc and back again
Minorca is nice too, nice n small,can get from anywhere to anywhere in under an hour, aim for west end of island
We stayed here, great for kids, pools etc, small apartment enough for fam of 4 with kitchenette English tv patio with sunset views, evening ents, tons of restaurants 10mins walk up road, end of the road so nice and quiet not too many English either (u ntil you head up the road!)

Book yourself onto the Dover to Calais car ferry, bundle everyone into the car (with tent and swim trunks) then head for the South of France. It's relatively cheap, and certainly easy. I do it pretty much every July/August...
That's a fair bit of driving if you've only got a week.
Turkey has some nice bits and is DEF cheaper than Spain/Greece etc imo especially with the €
Salou is lovely, if you avoid the 'british' end. Very developed but really well done. Taragona is an old Roman city nearby. You've also got Port Aventura and water parks nearby.
Tenerife also very good but can be hot as hell in the summer.
PS Avoid Travelrepublic like the plague.
Only an hourish on the train from Barcelona too!
We have our big family gîte available from the 24th, in Ariège, where there's stacks of family things to do (think castles, caves, mountain walks, markets, kayaking, birds of prey, etc.) as well as a huge variety of awesome climbing. See http://chezarran.com for more info.
Let me know if you're interested and we could offer a last-minute deal on that week.

Or £200 in a taxi......fecking travelrepublic didn't pick us up!
ok look at the calendar for 'Maison La Montagne' at http://www.chezarran.com/calendar.html and if the available dates work for you send me an email either via our website or even via this forum if you prefer. Once we know how many you are and which dates you're interested in we can then let you know what kind of a deal we may be able to offer on a last-minute booking basis.
For me though, anything Greek is the way forward. Spain and Turkey always seem to pop up on holidays from hell style programmes and are big on high rise monstrosities.
