Top Five Last Minute Holiday Destinations

Almira Armstrong

With the European Summer coming to an end, there is still time to escape for a weekend and feel the warmth of that sun.  We have made it easy for you in booking those last minute getaways at some of our favourite boutique hotels.

Casa Cook, Kos, Greece

Beginning in Rhodes, Casa Cook has opened a new location in Kos.  The pristine beach location along the Aegean waters is the perfect hideaway with the laid-back vibe you’ll only find at Casa Cook.  To set the scene for your summer escape, their rooms are little enclaves grouped around courtyards and gardens. The rooms allow you to kick back in style and comfort, with large terraces extending into your private outdoor space.  Deeply inspired by the Greek parea - a gathering of friends - their open-plan beach club invites you to create your own summer stories.

Casa Modesta, Algarve, Portugal

A gorgeous family house facing the sea and in the heart of the Ria Formosa Nature Park, considered one of Portugal's seven wonders.  Located in the Algarve, they organise daily routines for those who make this way of life a lifestyle, from gathering clams to baking bread to the harvesting and drying of fruits. You can catch a ride on a traditional boat, practice birdwatching, support the local nature reserve, and when night falls they turn their verandas into a planetarium and watch the stars.  Sounds like bliss!
