Cyprus was the choice of holiday location after a very long drawn out process. We had initially looked at Kenya, but the news was full of various incidents happening near some of the locations we looked at. We also considered going back to France, but thought that we needed a longer break before heading out there again. Croatia was looked at but it prices seemed to double or treble when we started looking at firm quotes. Malaga was an option and we found a fantastic villa, however the villa was taken by the time we came to book it. We also looked at South Africa and combining beach and safari, however the price was just a bit to much.
