The best holidays to book for sun, sea and skiing in March 2024

Simon Calder’s Travel

Easter comes right at the end of March this year, so prices throughout the month shouldn’t be too affected by the school holidays, which start around the 29th. Skiers and snowboarders can take advantage of this season’s bounteous snow and head off to the Alps and enjoy excellent conditions. As the days get longer and spring finally arrives, it’s even more pleasant to sit on a mountain terrace in the sunshine.

If it’s warmer sunshine you’re craving, you can find deals in Spain’s Balearic Islands, or further south in the Mediterranean in Cyprus. Or go long haul and soak up the sun on the beaches of the Maldives. If you’re staying the UK, lose yourself in the mellow countryside of the Cotswolds, or enjoy Cornwall in the low season before the summertime crowds descend. Wherever you decide to go away in March, you’ll find some inspiration from these ideas.

If you’re a multi-generational group or a gang of 10 friends in search of an Easter getaway in the Spanish sunshine, then Laguna Sanau in Mallorca should keep everyone in the party happy. This five-bedroom finca-style house is in the midst of tranquil countryside yet only a short drive from Cala d’Or and within walking distance of the cove at Cala Sa Nau. In the extensive gardens you’ll find a swimming pool, hot tub, table tennis, built-in barbecue and plenty of space to run around or just laze in the sun. Booked through Vintage Travel, it’s available from 23 March for £2,545 and from 30 March for £2,722.
