Vesuvius Views

By Lorraine Petrie

What could be better than a swim with a view? When it’s of mighty Vesuvius across Sorrento and the Bay of Naples. Lucky member, Lorraine Petrie, captured the stunning image from poolside, on a perfectly clear day.

Mount Vesuvius resides in Campania, Italy and is a popular day trip from Naples or Sorrento. A coastal town facing the Bay of Naples, Sorrento sits atop dramatic cliffs, with sweeping ocean views. Its historic centre offers plenty of exploration among narrow alleys, historic architecture and a bustling café scene.

Simply Holiday Deals member, Melanie Taylor says of her holiday snap, “A picture perfect beach in Kassiopi, Corfu.” With the multiple blues of the ocean and pristine beach, we absolutely agree!


Located on Corfu’s northern coast, Kassiopi is a peaceful haven for a beach holiday. The whitewashed village is home to Kassiopi Castle and a beautiful harbour. Here, you’ll find some traditional Greek charm among the beaches and nightlife, with easy access to Corfu’s wealth of attractions.


Panoramic Alicante Views

“Just climbed up a massive mountain in Spain, to be rewarded by this beautiful view,” says member, Andy Davison. A reward indeed, in the region of Alicante.

The port city of Alicante is a base for the delights of the sunny Costa Blanca, surrounded by golden beaches and mountain ranges perfect for hiking. The capital boasts a fascinating old town, Barrio de la Santa Cruz, and the medieval Castillo de Santa Barbara. Along with natural wonders and history, it’s also legendary for vibrant nightlife.

The surf’s up in Florida, USA! “Cocoa Beach is the place to go for surfing. This was taken from the pier on a very windy day. The waves were rough but the surfers were incredible,” says member, Rebecca Sloan of her photo.


Sun-drenched Cocoa Beach is located along Florida’s Space Coast. It’s a popular family holiday spot, with a beautiful pier, nature preserves, historic Cocoa Village and, nearby, the famous Kennedy Space Centre.
