Europe in February??

Jump to last reply

Looking ahead a bit . . . we are trying to maximize our opportunities while living in the UK. The kids (12 & 9) will have a half term break towards the end of February. I'm trying to decide what to research next. I haven't seen too many places mentioned for this time of year as being the preferred time to visit, but perhaps some are more desirable relatively.

We've been to Madrid and Paris and will see western Ireland (August) and Rome (October) by that time. Cities are fine but not mandatory. Normally, outdoor activities (low impact) are fine but we aren't into winter sports per se. We are linguistically challenged (English only) so we don't tend to get too far off the beaten path (yet). We've not yet lived through a UK winter but I imagine a little warmth and sunshine would do us some good by that point.

From what I gather, the Mediterranean destinations may be pleasant but not necessarily swimming weather. Would an island destination (Sardina, Crete, Cyprus, etc.) be a good choice or best saved for slightly warmer weather?

Morocco is intriguing and not something I would have considered from the US, but I'll likely need some more time to convince DW of a north Africa destination.

Or, should we just save the limited holiday time and go to London for a long weekend?

Thanks for the input.
