As we move from autumn into winter in the northern hemisphere, we start to think about warmer climes and the Mediterranean is always top of the list for us, mainly because of the ambient temperatures and ease of access from most of Europe. Temperatures rarely see below 10C on the coast and with so many flight options from major European cities (and far beyond!), it’s a perennial favourite.
When it’s grey and dreary at home it’s time inject some serious glamour into your life (work and otherwise), so on that note, here are some of our picks for events and incentives in sunnier regions not too far from the UK:
