This year, Easter falls quite late, which is a bonus if you're craving some respite from the gales and floods that are currently besetting the UK.

There are several advantages in taking an early Mediterranean break, not least that there should be plenty of warm sunshine but less humidity than is present at the height of the summer season. The resorts are less crowded and the countryside is still verdantly green in many locations.

Many people will opt to travel to Spain. Consider heading to Catalonia for some quirky off- the- beaten- track resorts and spend some quality time as a family exploring the isolated beaches and charming villages. For villa holidays, Majorca, Menorca or Ibiza are perfect destinations, well set up for children of all ages.

The further south you go, the better the weather. Mainland Greece is a good choice and has something for everyone in its many friendly resorts. The best for a variety of activities is probably Crete or Corfu. For a slower paced holiday try one of the smaller islands such as Paxos or Kefalonia.

Italy has a lot to offer the Easter traveller. Sardinia is ideal for an active holiday, with great golf and water sports on offer. Both Sardinia and Sicily can get unbearably hot and crowded in July and August, but at Easter will be far quieter, all the better to appreciate the stunning natural surroundings. Head over to the mainland to find some impressive luxury villas, or, if walking is your thing you could consider a hiking holiday in the lush Umbrian countryside. The Amalfi coast offers the ultimate in luxury accommodation with an authentic Italian feel. For a taste of quintessential Italy, Puglia is a good choice, with its ancient historic towns, stunning coastline and legendary hospitality.

Another great family friendly destination is the Algarve. The temperature in Portugal at Easter time is generally very pleasant with little rain and the region is home to plenty of all-inclusive resorts. Turkey's Aegean coast is increasingly steadily in popularity with holidaymakers from the UK – its charming villages and quirky boutique style hotels are perfect for couple and families alike.

If you're after a bargain break, Croatia could well be the perfect destination. The Dalmatian coast and islands is home to a wide variety of well-priced holiday options – from top end hotels to cheap and cheerful self-catering apartments.
