Cheap holidays in September

September is the best time of year to visit the Mediterranean: while Britain begins to cool, Greece, Spain, Italy and southern France are still enjoying warm, sunny weather. The school holidays have also ended, meaning destinations are less crowded and travel is even cheaper. To top-up your summer tan to satisfaction, jet off this September to a HomeAway holiday hotspot.

  1. Algarve

    With temperatures of 26°C every day, Algarve holidays in September are clearly a fantastic choice. The roads are quieter as the high season begins to dwindle, so it's the perfect time of year to hire a car and explore the island. Of course, there are so many lovely towns that it can be hard to know where to start, but Faro and Albufeira are both popular bases. Faro is the historical capital of the Algarve, boasting cathedrals, museums and traditional restaurants, whilst Albufeira is brimming with beaches, and well known for its lively nightlife.

  2. Costa Blanca

    There are plenty of reasons to choose Costa Blanca holidays in September, the least of which is the absence of crowds. Imagine vast, secluded beaches and warm, balmy weather, and you're pretty close to understanding why the White Coast is so appealing. Aside from magnificent sunsets and lively, colourful nightlife, the Costa Blanca boasts a range of fascinating attractions. You could discover spellbinding salt lakes which change colour throughout the day, or observe shipwrecks, rays and coral whilst scuba diving. Whether you stay in popular Torrevieja or cultural Alicante, you'll fall in love with the Costa Blanca.

  3. Sicily

    Sicily is a wonderful destination for holidays in September, with temperatures reaching 26°C and above. One of the most popular destinations is charming Palermo, brimming with churches, museums and ancient mosaics in nearby Monreale. The Aeolian Islands are a little more tranquil, and include Lipari, Vulcano and Salina. Take a mud bath in Vulcano before swimming in the sea, which bubbles hot gas like a jacuzzi, or go hiking in Salina's beautiful mountains, where you can admire the late blooms of summer.

  4. Provence Provence

    As summer dwindles over most of Europe, the south of France enjoys temperatures of 25°C. Needless to say, Provence holidays in September are a great choice this year: it's not too hot to enjoy sightseeing and walking, but it's not so cold that you'll have to avoid the beach. Whether you want to take a tour of local vineyards, explore medieval villages, or cycle your way around the countryside, you'll find a great base when you book through HomeAway. We have traditional apartments in Marseille, chalets in St. Tropez, and beautiful villas in Avignon: wherever you want to stay, we've got accommodation covered.

  5. Crete

    With temperatures reaching 25°C, Crete is a great choice for holidays in September. Destinations are less crowded, so you can make the most of your time away, navigating narrow streets at your own leisurely pace. Why not hire a car and explore as much of the island as possible? Almirida is a great destination: a small, seaside resort, it has a beautiful crescent-shaped bay, range of traditional tavernas, and plenty of markets and walking trails to explore. Conversely, try Rethymnon, where you'll find Byzantine ruins, beautiful beaches and the magnificent Fortezza castle.
