Lanzarote is such an amazing place, known for its year-round warm weather, gorgeous landscapes and turquoise waters. We also have a huge sentiment for Lanzarote as this is where I said ”YES” 🙂
We stayed at the Lancelot Hotellocated in a perfect place between the beach (just a few meters away) and the city. Very clean, modern hotel with delicious breakfast. Right next to the hotel you will find plenty of restaurants, cycling routes, shops, weekend markets and bike & scooter rentals (where you’d also be able to buy guided tours)
3. Palma de Mallorca
Picturesque Mallorca is well known for its turquoise water and beautiful beaches, such a dreamy destination! We spent a few days in Mallorca at the end of February, it rained for a couple of hours on the day of our arrival, but the rest of our stay was pleasantly warm.

One of the reasons why you should consider Alicante when looking for the perfect holiday destination is the beautiful weather. In fact, winter in Alicante is drier than it normally is in Mediterranean climates, while summer (as is normal) is almost completely devoid of rain.
It’s the perfect place for those who like to explore, but those who prefer more chilled out holidays will be equally delighted with beautiful sandy beaches (I highly recommend San Juan Playa). In less than an hour drive you can also get to Benidorm, so if you’re planning a trip to Benidorm or Alicante, you can tick off both places during one trip.
We went to Quarteira (Algarve) in April to celebrate my mum’s birthday and we had such an amazing mummy&daughter time. Detailed post here
I must admit this was one of the most relaxing holidays I’ve ever had. No mobiles, no rush, no worries. In fact, we spent most of our holiday on long walks on the beach, SPA sessions and chit-chats with a glass of wine.
We also decided to visit Seville as my mum really wanted to see it and I couldn’t say no to another adventure and my beloved TacoBell. The distance between Quarteira and Sevilla is over 200km so it’s a long drive – however there are plenty of things you can do in Algarve itself such as: Cruises to Nossa Senhora da Rocha, Benagilor Ponta da Piedade.Faro Old Town is amazing, go and try the traditional Portuguese food!
Quarteira is a small town in the Algarve region, very quiet, suitable for families with children and couples. Long sandy beaches, beautiful promenade, shops with local goodies and restaurants.
Another mama&daughter trip, this time we decided to visit Malta (in early May – just before the start of the season). I remember arriving to our hotel late at night, and realising that most of the people are just starting off their day (at 2am). Malta just seemed like ONE, BIG – NON STOP PARTY, but God I was so wrong thinking that there’s nothing else to do than just getting smashed.
