But bearing in mind that the best part of holiday planning is deciding where to go, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most popular destinations for over-75s.

Spain offers something for everyone    

Spain is the number one holiday destination for Brits of all ages, as has been proven again and again in vacation surveys. This is unsurprising given that Spain really does offer something for everyone, with idyllic beaches, a relaxed culture, quaint villages and picture perfect scenery.

Most holidaymakers opt for a coastal area of Spain so that they can take advantage of the country’s white sands, rustic beach bars and relaxed pace of life. One extremely popular destination is the Costa Del Sol, catered for by Malaga airport. It includes the city of Malaga as well as the towns of Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola, Mijas, Marbella, Nerja and others.

Fuengirola is a particularly relaxing option, with its miles of sandy beaches, plethora of restaurants and miles of beach-front hotels and apartments. Holidaymakers can while away their days lounging on the beach or by the pool, popping into a beach bar for lunch, before exploring the town’s atmospheric food district at night. There are also plenty of markets and shops for those interested in a bit of retail therapy. The quaint village of Mijas, which sits high up in the mountains, is just a bus ride away, and visitors can immerse themselves in rustic Spain with its traditional shops, restaurants and cafes.

Marbella is another favourite among Brits. While some parts of the region are known as being quite rowdy, there are other resorts that are packed to the brim with sophisticated restaurants and bars and quiet, relaxing beaches.

Explore the delicious South of France

If it’s wine, cheese and sophistication you want, then the South of France is likely to be your ideal holiday destination. The city of Arles is a fantastic option for a break, with the historic city featuring many cultural attractions hailing from its Roman days, including an amphitheatre, forum and theatre. It is also renowned for its natural beauty, so if exploring intriguing galleries and museums before sitting down for a glass of wine in picturesque settings sounds like your thing, then Arles is for you.

For an olde worlde French feel, the city of Pezenas is ideal. It is a traditional old South of France town, and is now a haven for antiques and markets. The ancient streets encompass a rustic sort of beauty, and there is nothing better than enjoying a lazy wander through its lanes on a warm day. Pezenas is also a particular treat for wine lovers, being situated among some of the best vineyards in the South of France.
