If you’re still looking for somewhere to escape over this weekend’s Easter holidays, Dubrovnik Sun Gardens, an extensive resort overlooking the Adriatic from the ancient Croatian coast, may have just the package. The resort enjoys a long sweep of beach (possibly a bit cold for a dip just yet), a top grade Anne Semonin spa, its own promenade of market shops and no less than 13 restaurants, plus a private ferry to the walled city of Dubrovnik old town. A three day package from 22-25 or 23-26 April, including Easter dinner and access to the spa, starts from €255 per person.

Alternatively, you can head for the Greek island of Mykonos, where the luxurious Grace hotel is situated on a quiet hillside and presents something of a haven from the liveliness of Mykonos town. Temperatures are already in the high 20s here, which means pool-side lounging and sunny cocktails are the order of the day. Activities that can be arranged include yacht hires, helicopter island tours, horseback riding to Fokos beach, jeep safaris and scuba diving. The Easter package comprises three nights in a deluxe room, with free transfers, Easter dinner and champagne breakfast, and costs from £517.
