Just Landed – February’s new arrivals

Just Landed – February’s new arrivals

You’ve had Valentine’s Day and Pancake Day, now February is all about our Just Landed new arrivals. Move over and make some room for a brand-new batch of the best new destinations and hotels this month. If you’re seeking out a new stylish stay, somewhere that’s good for the ‘gram or more space, like an apartment, then these are all yours.   

Meet the top picks from February’s new arrivals…   

Lyon, France 

When France calls for cheese and wine, Lyon brings you over 4,000 restaurants and the famous vineyards of Beaujolais. It is the country’s Gastronomic Capital, after all, so if travel is all about the food for you, you’ll fit in well here. Hop around the city’s markets for a flavour of everything – La Croix Rousse and St Antonine are a couple of the biggest. To work up an appetite for your next feast, hike up to the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière and you can find some of the best views of the city.   

Sofia, Bulgaria 

You can now book Bulgaria’s hottest city break – Sofia. This capital is one of Europe’s oldest, dating back over 2,000 years. You’ve got Roman, Greek and Ottoman history to explore, with top museums and plenty of free attractions, like an early Christian Basilica and ancient baths as part of the Serdica excavations. You can take a daytrip out to hike the trails of Mt Vitosha, too. Or, Bulgaria now backs a pretty big coffee culture with some cool cafes and there are plenty of rooftop bars for a cocktail in the evening.   

Foodie faves 

Albania only dropped recently but we’re already back with the addition of Premium Beach Hotel. This brand-new, five-star luxury resort is in between Tirana and Durres, so there’s plenty of daytripping opportunity. But this place is best known for its hospitality, including several bars and restaurants that serve up traditional tastes. A whole half of the rooms here have panoramic sea views, and the beach is right there. Pick from the indoor or outdoor pool, then end up in the Adriatic or on a lounger with your order from the bar.   

Picks with indoor pools 

Time Boutique Hotel is in Split, Croatia and there’s a full-service spa. We’re talking massages, body treatments, facials and an indoor pool and sauna – it’s proper treat-yourself stuff. Clouds are projected above the water and there are loungers to relax on when you get out. You could spend days just in here, but Bacvice Beach and Split Marina are too close by not to check out. You can walk into the city centre to explore the squares, museums and pick a restaurant for dinner – the hot tub’s not going anywhere.   

The best value 

El Cid is an award-winning, low-budget hotel in the centre of Sitges. This is Barcelona’s sister town on the Costa Dorada, so you get all the beaches, a famous art scene and access to the big city without the cost of staying there. All the rooms here have an ensuite bathroom and traditional decor to match the historical building’s style. There’s a breakfast buffet and even an outdoor pool with a sun terrace. Sitges is also known for its wine – sold! So, you’ll be glad the beach and bars are just a short walk away for a sample.  

Splash it over social  

Well, this one is five stars after all… San Canzian Village and Hotel is primed for pampering. There’s a spa, stunning outdoor pool and sauna. But the showstopper has to be the attached winery – grape vines always make for a great backdrop. This Croatian catch has a bit of a Tuscan feel, with panelled glass doors out onto cute terraces and stone walls strung with fairy lights. You’re set into the hills, so Umag and Portoroz Beach are a short drive away, but the hotel’s shuttle can help you get there.   

 Apartment stays 

The Levanda Villas Complex is home to Chris Le Mare Luxury Villa in Pernera, Cyprus and comes with a private swimming pool, living room, kitchen and outdoor patio. It’s your home away from home, but way better. There’s an ensuite master bedroom to fight over and then two other bedrooms too, so there’s plenty of room for family and friends. You can walk to the beach from here and the decor feels like it – it’s all natural wood, whites and touches of blue. Anyone staying here can also use the facilities of Louis St Elias Resort and Waterpark here for free.
