    I am trying to book somewhere for a week away.

    ideally somewhere quiet, sunny and not full of part goers.

    Over the past 2 years I have been to turunc in turkey and st George (south) in Corfu which fitted the bill nicely.
    However this year would like to go somewhere were the flight times are not silly (aka so we can get to the airport at about 8am) and that doesn't have a 2.5 hour transfer time (like turunc)

    Any ideas? looking about 1k for both of us, 1st or 2nd week in august, SC or otherwise.
     
  2. How about a villa in Lanzarote? Playa Blanca is quiet, beautiful, has nice beach, not too many clubs and few party goers. Acceptable flight time and 30 minute transfer. Pm if you want name of local villa company ..not sure if I can advertise it here.

    can you find some of the greek islands.the non party goer ones.or maybe sicily/
    I beleive the libyian desert is rather free of partygoers.and does have sun?
     
  8. How about Malta?
    For that sort of money you would get a nice hotel (away from the touristy places).
    Where can you fly from?

  14. I used www.sunshine.co.uk to book last year. 7 nights in Gran Canaria, £500 for 2 of us. Was a nice holiday - hotel was basic but clean.

    If you're not already in Groupon, you might find it's worth your while joining up. Lots of holiday bargains are coming out at the moment!

    everyone knows beer causes quoting droop, it never goes quiet as high as you need it to.

    Thanks for the ideas so far will have a look and see.
