Where to Go in July

Picking your summer holiday destination, so we’ve gathered our top picks for where to go in July so you don’t have to. July is the heart of summer, a time when many parts of the world come alive with perfect weather and unique experiences. Whether you’re looking to relax on a sunny beach, explore a new city, or enjoy a scenic hike, there are plenty of wonderful places to visit.

These are our favourite destinations to consider for your July travels, offering a mix of relaxation, adventure, and cultural enrichment. And, with the Olympics taking place in Paris and across France, we’ve picked some favourite spots where you can also catch some of the sporting action! Let’s dive in and find your perfect summer getaway.

1. Cote d’Azur, France

Weather: Max: 33 degrees (approx.) | Min: 20 degrees (approx.).

What to do: Cliff-top roads, irresistible beaches and impossibly blue seas, the Cote d’Azur captures the South of France to a T – sexy, dripping in glitz and glamour. But you don’t need to be a high-profile celeb to make the most of the region, the never-ending diversity is perfect for all kinds of travellers. Head to Marseille or Nice for Olympic football this year!

Where to stay: Have you had a look at our villas in Cote d’Azur yet?

2. Languedoc, France

Weather: Max: 28 degrees (approx.) | Min: 15 degrees (approx.) 

What to do: Languedoc is a delight to visit, more so because it’s completely off the cuff from the rest of the country. The French rural life is a pleasure we believe everyone should experience, even if just once. But if you’re not a fan of the countryside, don’t fret, Languedoc still has a mix of landscapes, a stunning coastline, and lively social living. The city of Toulouse is the capital of this region, and you’ll find Olympic football being played there at the end of the month!

Where to stay: Our chateaux and villas in Languedoc will make your holiday home dreams come true.

3. Ibiza, Spain

Weather: Max: 32 degrees (approx.) | Min: 22 degrees (approx.)

What to do: The clubbing capital of the world through and through, but holidaying in July shines a spotlight on Ibiza’s many other charms. The unfrequented coves, medieval history, and pine-carpeted hills make this White Isle a force to be reckoned with.

Where to stay: Why not treat yourself and book one of our villas in Ibiza?

4. Sardinia, Italy

Weather: Max: 35 degrees (approx.) | Min: 20 degrees (approx.)

What to do: Visiting Sardinia will feel as though you have the whole island to yourself. And more importantly, the island isn’t one-dimensional, rather it’s incredibly different, you’ll believe us when you see it with your own eyes. You’ll find the traditionalists in Barbagia, the high life in Costa Smeralda and ancient history in Nora, the list goes on and on…

5. Cornwall, England

Weather: Max: 24 degrees (approx.) | Min: 12 degrees (approx:) 

What to do: Naturally, we couldn’t talk about holiday regions without throwing in a staycation and Cornwall is the best region for a July holiday. With long stretches of sandy beach and jaw-dropping scenery, Cornwall feels miles away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, yet it’s easily accessible by car and train. 

Where to stay: Fancy a place outside the norm? Have a look at our luxury cottages in Cornwall.

6. Rhodes, Greece

Weather: Max: 32 degrees (approx.) | Min: 24 degrees (approx.)

What to do: Rhodes boasts almost all-year-round sunshine, so if that isn’t reason enough, then I don’t know what is. Full of history, charismatic charm, a nightlife to boot and fine crystal waters – you’ll be beside yourself if you don’t visit. Rhodes is even prettier than the pictures depict, but don’t just take our word for it.

Where to stay: Check out our stunning villas in Rhodes.
