August bank holiday city break ideas
FizzyPink · 29/02/2020 20:05
Looking for ideas for a surprise break over August bank holiday weekend for DPs birthday potentially with another couple.
I fancied Palma but cheap flights aren’t at great times but still an option. I also fancy Valencia but he wasn’t keen when I dropped it into conversation. Suggestions for somewhere hot with nice restaurants/city to wander around but also option to sunbathe by the pool if we fancied. Preferably under 4 hours flight time please

Oh and I’ve done Seville and absolutely loved it so would consider it and he’s done Lisbon with the friend we may be going with so that’s probably a no

I went to Paris one August bh. It was 35 degrees. Left Cardiff in rain and felt very smug..We booked last minute based on weather, but the flights did cost.

If you’re keen on Spain, then San Sebastian. Flights to Bilbao are generally cheap. Very much a foodie destination.

Oohh I hadn’t actually considered Paris and I don’t think he’s been. Will look into hotels with rooftop pools as I know he’ll be keen for some chill time

San Sebastian and Bilbao are also amazing. I'd want longer than a weekend there though as it's just so beautiful in the surrounding mountains. We flew easy jet to Bilbao
