The archipelago of Madeira is famed for its almost tropical climate and its biggest island, Funchal boasts verdant surrounds which wouldn’t look out of place much closer to the equator. Those who choose to stay at the Pestana Ocean Bay All Inclusive Resort with First Choice can spend their days lounging by the pool, or exploring Funchal city’s famous botanical gardens as the hotel offers a free shuttle bus in and out of the city. Those who’d prefer to make the most of their all inclusive board in resort should consider the Hotel RIU Palace Madeira where tennis comes included and shows are held at the hotel’s theatre six days a week.

The gorgeous Greek isle of Kefalonia was made famous by the novel and film, the Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. Whilst it is a love story at the centre of this film, it was the scenery that saw tourists flocking to the island. Today, there are still deep blue seas to plunge into and deep green mountain vistas to enjoy. First Choice are offering last minute deals on stays at the Hotel San Georgio. The hotel is smaller than many of First Choice‘s offerings and in the place of numerous facilities, there is a focus on friendly familiar service and relaxation amongst the gorgeous natural surrounds.

Sunny Beach

Bulgaria’s Sunny Beach enjoys a long arc of golden sands, where watersports and frolicking in the sea rule supreme. First Choice‘s hotels here make the most of these settings with beachside locations. The Suneo Serenity Bay boasts a prime spot on a fairly undeveloped stretch of coastline meaning that you can splash around in the sea and kick back on the beach away from the crowds. Those looking to be amidst all of the action may prefer to stay at the Suneoclub Garden Nevis where you are mere minute’s away from the buzz of the resort’s bars and shops.
