The April and May bank holidays are finally within touching distance so if you haven’t already made plans for the 4 day extravaganza; allow us to lend a hand. Get your mini-break mojo on with the help of Fiorelli.
Feel the Heat in Montpellier
Flight comparison website Skyscanner is an ideal tool for arranging last minute mini breaks. A quick browse for the April bank holiday dates returns flights to Montpellier in France for just £133 per round-trip.
Situated in the South of France, Montpellier is a cosmopolitan city with excellent transport links to the local beach allowing visitors to enjoy the best of both worlds on their holiday. Grab a cocktail in Place Jean Jaurès – a central square packed full of luxurious bars, head to Brasserie Vert Anglais for a lavish lunch and shop to your heart’s content at Odysseum - Montpellier’s best shopping centre.
For all out decadence stay at Pullman Montpellier Antigone, the city’s top rated hotel. Tuck into complimentary croissants at breakfast, take a dip in the pool, relax in ultra-modern rooms and enjoy the benefit of staying a mere hop, skip and jump away from the city centre.
And the best thing about Montpellier? The weather heats up around this time of year with average temperatures falling in the mid 20’s. Bliss!
