I'm trying to find a good deal on a holiday, I'm hoping some of the experts on here can help me.
First the 'details'
It's for a couple.
It's for sometime in August (sadly that isn't flexible, when in August is though)
It's for a minimum of 7 days, maximum of 14, 10 or 14 would probably be ideal
Budget is £1200 per person if 'all inclusive' if not more like £800-900 or so.
What we don't want (I say this because this is what we've found tons of!).
A resort which is just a pool, beach and not much else, with a tower block of a hotel, tons of kids everywhere and people getting hammered everywhere. If that's your thing great! Have fun! It's not what we're looking for this time!
What we do want
Coastal - that's a definite, we love to be by the sea. If there were stonking waves and surf all the better!
Warm but not stupid hot - i.e. not somewhere that's 35-40 degrees - I'm struggling in London at the moment!
Somewhere not rammed with families and children
Somewhere with other things to do and appreciate - be this somewhere we can go on some cool excursions, or with interesting architecture, tons of nature and wildlife would be a massive bonus!
We've looked around some deal sites and not much comes up besides the obvious places which sound very similar to our 'not what we want' places.
I'd thought of these kind of places (but not with too much research)
* Greece (but not somewhere like Kavos)
* The Azores - this especially looks interesting
* Bali (yeah right!) / French Polynesia (again, yeah right!)
* USA - good dollar rates but where?
* San Sabastian?
If anyone can suggest good places to look for that sort of thing, or indeed other locations we could look at that would be much appreciated.
So yeah with August being about a week away we don't know even what country or for how long we're going for! - Cool in one regard but scary in another!!
