Help - Belinda no mates needs a holiday!

I am on my own (no children) and love my holidays but unfortunately friends are either booked up, busy or have no holiday at the moment and I want to go away the last week of June. Any suggestions please. I've just spent ages on the 'net' and the best I can come up with (which doesn't bankrupt me) is a flight to Gerona and 4 nights in a hotel. All the other holidays I have to pay for 2 people! tia.

Could you try a single holiday company, know that some travel agents have holidays for singlies, not much help but can't think of a lot.

Thanks Baldrick, yes I have but they're either holidays for ravers in their 20's or are really really expensive. I hate being penalised for being on my own.

Thanks codswallop - i've had a look and the cheapest I could find on there was about £800. Average prices were well over £1k. Unbelievable and that was for mainland Spain. Thanks anyway, looking more like I shall go independently and 'slum' it for a few days. I do live by the sea so maybe i'll just stay put and spend the money on something else ..just wish we could rely on the weather!

Delgirl, does it have to be a hotel or would self-catering be an option?

Gerona is a lovely city. I'd love to go back there.

janh - i'll consider anything, just dont want to have to pay too much tho, feeling quite low at the moment so don't want to spend the earth on feeling low somewhere else. Just need a boost before I start ivf again.

Aloha - I flew to Gerona in March but didn't actually stay there so i'm going to look for hotels there I think. I can get a flight from Bournemouth (10 mins away) Just would rather go somewhere a little more scenic.

Thanks for the tips

Delgirl, would something like this do you? £213 pw and it says it's available that week. You'd need a car though.

The site covers all of Europe so you could have a look at Italy too.
