February 26, 2016

It’s no surprise that a top search on Google recently has been “When is Mother’s Day?” and no doubt as it nears closer and closer (Sunday 6th March is the answer – yikes!) the fear will set in of what to get to solidify your place as the favourite child this year. But don’t worry, here at we’ve compiled a list of 10 European breaks that could be used as perfect Mother’s Day gifts whatever her tastes!

  1. Spa breaks – What better way to help your mum treat herself than with a relaxing spa holiday among beautiful countryside? Our Sardinian spa break includes 4 nights in 4* hotel on half board basis and 3 spa treatments so that your mum can properly take some time out to just chill. With prices from €151EURper person, this short spa break is available March – November so you don’t have to worry about pushing for time off work at peak times.
  2. Cooking holidays – We’re not going to say too much here! Personally mum, I definitely don’t think you need any cooking lessons because your meals are delicious. But others may not be so lucky… If you feel you could be tactful in giving this gift then go for it! Our Barga cooking holiday offers a truly unique experience in a beautiful guesthouse with all the attention of your host and cook Rita to teach you authentic Italian cuisine and visit a local wine cellar for a tasting session. Prices here are €550EURper person including full board basis for 4 nights, airport transfers, 3 days of cooking lessons and wine tasting! This cooking holiday is only available on select dates March – September so be careful to check before you book!
  3. Walking holidays – Help your mum say she visited 3 countries in one holiday with our Alpe Adria walking holiday starting and finishing in Valbruna. This short walking tour allows active mums to explore the famous tour through natural landscapes of Slovenia, Italy and Austria. We have availability from May – October from €300EURper person so this Mother’s Day gift will get you brownie points again when she actually experiences it for herself – double win!
  4. Horse riding holidays – Known for its art and history, Tuscany offers beautiful countryside views that are ideal for a horse riding break. If your mum would love to combine her favourite hobby with exploring new scenery, then this is the ideal Mother’s Day gift for her.

  7. London theatre break – I know my mum loves going to the West End in London as a special treat to see those world-famous shows, so no doubt a few of your mum’s are the same. If this is the case, we’ve recently added a new break with a pass to a number of London’s biggest musical and stage shows (subject to availability on the day!) with 3* accommodation in the heart of London AND a 24hr bus ticket just so you can take in all the sights the city has to offer too!

We work with a range of hotels in the area, with something for all preferences, along with having a range of ticket options available for the concert itself.

We also have ticket packages available for his concert in Marostica in September, when temperatures will be a little colder!
  9. Beyoncé tickets and hotel packages – Queen B is back and telling us that girls run the world may be exactly how your mum wants to feel on Mother’s Day!
