Ancient civilisations in Europe regarded the Mediterranean Sea as being at the centre of all known lands, and to the present day this wonderful area is synonymous in our minds with thoughts of sun-drenched holidays, languid weeks of dreamy indolence away from daily cares as well as of a healthier lifestyle with the right kinds of food and drink to match. Whether it be for a romantic break for two, a family holiday together, a cultural or active break, the Mediterranean region will always have the ideal holiday to suit you, and Charitable Travel has sought out the best value and most comfortable Mediterranean niches to meet your holiday expectations and dreams.  

At the centre of Mediterranean tourism, Spain is justifiably a magnet for family holidays and inexpensive breaks. However, as this country has modernised so it now offers even more to inspire the visitor. Consider Barcelona’s new waterfront area where you’ll find luxury yacht harbours, the largest Marine Aquarium in Europe and the new Maremagnum shopping and nightlife complex. Further along the coast similar exciting development can be seen at Valencia’s futuristic City of Arts and Sciences, or at the culturally innovative city of Malaga, reputed to have the best art galleries in southern Spain, perhaps unsurprising for the birthplace of Pablo Picasso. Last but not least, the Balearic Islands of Majorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera always delight the visitor with their huge choice of idyllic beaches, trendy seaside promenades, buzzing music scene and pretty inland villages.

Italy’s Mediterranean coastline boasts classic destinations that have drawn visitors since tourism began. Sicily, famous for its Baroque churches, open-air museums and year-round mild climate is a unique place where you can ascend the Mount Etna volcano, marvel at Taormina’s ancient Greek theatre and cool off with a refreshing Sicilian granita dessert all in one morning. Alternatively, for beach lovers, Sardinia offers some of the most fabulous stretches of sand in all the Mediterranean and with hundreds to choose from including wild, remote beaches you’ll be sure to find your own space. Local restaurants complement the beach experience and there will be all the pizza, antipasti, gelato and local wine that you could wish for.

Neighbouring Greece has always appealed to those seeking the sun but many visitors find themselves equally beguiled by the easygoing pace of life and friendly hospitable locals. Crete is the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean where not only can you see the vestiges and history of past civilisations but also revel in the glorious beaches, fascinating old town areas and the timeless mountainscapes of the island. 

Like a jewel in the Mediterranean Sea tiny Malta has a significance way beyond its size. The visitor will find this island, and especially its historic capital of Valletta, fascinating to explore and to learn about the many battles that have been fought over it, evidenced by its many fortresses and city walls. Even if there is a surfeit of history, there’s plenty of holiday balance to be had too with great beaches, nightlife and fresh seafood to be enjoyed on the island as well.

Call us today to start planning your Mediterranean sojourn and travel with the knowledge that you’ll be supporting the charity of your choice as you go.
