We all need things to look forward to in life, and holidays are often at the top of the list. Winter is coming, and having a sun-kissed beach break waiting on the other side can get you through the grey, drizzly days ahead. Let’s look onwards and upwards to 2020, where luxury four or five-star hotels in France and Italy rub shoulders with bucket-list adventures around South East Asia here at Secret Escapes.

With luxury travel at low prices, you’ll be giving your wallet an early Christmas present, too. The golden beaches in Spain or Greece are just a few clicks away, as well as the coastlines of Italy and Croatia. If you’re looking for something closer to home, there’s a whole host of country escapes and coastal breaks right here in the UK waiting, too - and for the more adventurous, New York and the Caribbean are also calling. With all this in mind, why not book early to get the best rooms and rates, and start counting down to your next big adventure?
