This year, Brits across the nation were left without a summer holiday due to the uncertainty surrounding travel, and with the weather turning cold and wintery, now more than ever are we desperate to escape to the sun.
After many months of changing policies and guidelines, it has just been announced that as of Sunday 25th October, British people will now be able to travel to the Canary Islands without facing a mandatory quarantine on return to the UK. That’s why, Holidu, the search engine for holiday rentals, has compiled a list of five stunning villas located in the Canary Islands, perfect for a last-minute winter sun retreat!
