Take to the road on the ultimate girls’ trip with our suggestions for the ‘girls-only’ holiday of a lifetime.
Re-fasten your friendship bonds on a no-holds barred, girls-only adventure. So good you’ll want to try them all….
Skiing in Glamorous Cortina D’Ampezzo
Cortina is the picturesque capital of Dolomiti skiing. It oozes glamour. Attracting almost as many non-skiers as skiers, who come to eat, shop, see and be seen. What could be more fun than swooshing elegantly down the sparkling slopes of Cortina with your closest friends? Perk up your mid-morning Cioccolato Caldo with a drop of local grappa and while away the evenings with a shimmering glass of prosecco.
Swing into the Saddle in Andalucía
The Spanish region of Andalucía is steeped in equestrian heritage, especially the beautiful mountain town of Jerez de la Frontera. Home to the famous Royal Andalucía School of Equestrian Art and the magical dancing horses. Equestrian Escapes offer breaks that combine horsey culture and heritage with wonderful riding opportunities through the vineyards of Jerez. And of course off the hoof visits to Jerez’s equally famous bodegas.
Plenty of time in and out the saddle to enjoy with chums: Horses, Sun and Wine with Equestrian Escapes.
Palma de Mallorca for Shopping, Cocktails and Sun-soaking
Combine sun, fun and shopping in Palma de Mallorca. Famed for its atmospheric old town and historic Moorish architecture Palma is emerging as one of the hottest, hippest destinations in the Mediterranean. Hail the new Barcelona.
Mix your days up shopping at designer boutiques and your afternoons soaking up the sun at one of the many swanky beach clubs. Then step out after sundown to dine and dance the night away. Stay at the suitably hip Hotel Cort in Palma’s historic Placa de Cort.
Grand Spa de Bordeaux
No guide to girlie getaways would be complete without a spa recommendation. Just as no girlie getaway would be complete without wine. So why not combine them both with a weekend of vinotherapy at the utterly magnificent Les Source de Caudalie, Bordeaux-Martillac.
Truly a girl/giggle-fest of treatments based on the healing, beautifying properties of the grape. Steep in a barrel of bubbling Grape Marc, enjoy a Cabernet Scrub and give in to a Pulpe Friction massage.
Take to the Fairway in Marrakesh
Create unforgettable memories with a girls-only golf holiday at the beguiling Palmaraie Palace Hotel and Resort, Marrakech. The course, designed by Robert Trent Jones is spectacularly exotic. Palm trees fringe the fairways, lakes sparkle and the Atlas Mountains shimmer in the distance. Even before you get onto the technical stuff it’s easy to see why this course has swept the board at the World Travel Awards for 10 consecutive years.
And if golfing in such a setting isn’t a joyful enough culture shock you can nip into the Medina to soak up the souks in the Djemaa el Fna, Marrakech’s legendary market square.
