One of the best things about heading off on holiday is getting away to somewhere a little out of the ordinary and breaking up that daily grind. Some people enjoy leaving work and home behind for a week or two, some people enjoy the challenge of adventure, and some people just want to kick back and relax. Whatever your preference, there’s one thing that, really makes you feel like you’re truly on holiday – and that’s an amazing view.

Whether it’s snow-capped mountains or endless rolling countryside, a great view can really help put things in perspective and refresh your body and mind. And when it comes to views, it’s hard to beat the amazing vistas you’ll find throughout the Mediterranean, with craggy mountains and verdant hills behind you and the wild, wide of azure of the sea stretching to the horizon ahead – and both of them are made all the better when viewed from the infinity pool!
