The summer might be slowly winding up, but in many European destinations, the less ‘rasping’ heat of high summer, the less crowded bars and beaches and the lower priced flights, makes September the perfect month to jet off to sunnier climes. To guarantee a last minute trip is as economical as possible, be sure to check out Vintage Travels offers section, which offer magnificent villas in the most stunning of settings at discounted prices.

We’ve recently asked some of our French holiday villa owners to lay on a little welcome pack for arriving guests and very happy to report that they are coming on board with the idea.
This means that whatever time of day or night you arrive at the villa that you always have the essentials to start enjoying your holiday without the desperate need to go shopping immediately. The initial feedback to date has been fantastic and is now something we are trying to encourage across all properties.

Prices do not include return UK flights and car hire, but these can be arranged independently or by the company on request.
We are pleased to include a Naked Wines voucher for £25 off your first order, and introduce the innovative ‘wine angel’ initiative.
We like Naked Wines for their refreshing approach, and the fact that they offer excellent wines from regional producers in many of our areas. They also offer the chance to try those producers’ wines at half price and support them as an ‘Angel’ – even if you have previously used one of the vouchers.
