April is an ideal month to take a short break or holiday: Europe finally gets some sunshine after the chills of winter, the days get longer and temperatures begin to rise. The Mediterranean is a great spot for this time of year, but there are plenty of destinations closer to home too. Of course, whether you dream of a traditional villa in Tuscany or a cosy cottage in Cornwall, you'll find your perfect property when you book through HomeAway.

Holidays in April benefit from warm weather, hours of sunshine, and uncrowded destinations. You can discover so much more when you book before the high season, whilst enjoying the rest and relaxation you deserve. What's more, you'll enjoy the luxury of having a spacious apartment, villa or cottage to come home to when you book through HomeAway.

So what are you waiting for? Celebrate spring with a holiday this year, and choose a beautiful HomeAway holiday rental.

Cornwall Holidays in April Cornwall holidays in April

When you head to Cornwall for holidays in April, you'll find the spoils of spring at their best. Wild flowers bloom over rolling, green hills, and exotic plants thrive in Cornwall's unique climate. There are over 50 Cornish gardens to visit during your stay, including the world-famous Eden Project and the lesser-known Lamorna Garden. Of course, little ones will love taking part in Easter celebrations, such as egg hunts and decorating days which take place throughout the county. All in all, April is one of the finest months to visit Cornwall: as well as enjoying the first glimpses of sunshine, you'll avoid the large crowds of summer.

Tuscany Holidays in April Tuscany holidays in April

It's a little-known secret that spring is the best time of year to visit Tuscany. This may be the quieter part of the season, but you can expect temperatures of around 22°C, cheaper flights and accommodation, and considerably fewer tourists. Major cities do tend to be crowded for the Easter weekend, but you'll find a property to suit whether you want to escape the bustle or become part of it. You could enjoy an apartment in the heart of lively Florence, visiting its museums and galleries; or sample fine food and wine at Italian food festivals, known as sagre, in Chianti near Siena.

Corsica Holidays in April Corsica holidays in April

The stunning French island of Corsica is simply perfect for holidays in April. The weather is not too hot, nor too cold, but just perfect for exploring Corsica's mountainous terrain. There are various hiking trails awash with wild flowers and trees, but if you'd rather relax, there's still plenty to enjoy. If you're not resting on the golden sands of the coast, head to one of Corsica's many attractions. In the north-west you'll find Porto, where you can visit the breathtaking rock formations of Les Calanches. Conversely, head to Porto Vecchio, where you'll discover the Church of St. Jean Baptiste amidst the winding streets of the old town.

Malaga Holidays in April Malaga holidays in April

For beach holidays in April, consider the Costa del Sol and Malaga. Its location on Spain's southern coast means you can expect beautiful beaches, warm waters, and over 300 days of sunshine a year. By travelling in April you'll escape the mass tourism of summer, so you can really enjoy the area's exciting attractions. Visit spring processions and festivals, take a trip to the Picasso museum, or even take a tour of Malaga's wine cellars. There's always the Moorish Alcazaba fortress to discover, and the Baroque Cathedral, 'La Manquita', to admire.

Greece holidays in April Greece holidays in April

For holidays in April with a difference, why not head to Greece to celebrate Orthodox Easter? You could choose to visit an Aegean, Ionian or Saronic Island - wherever you choose to go, you're guaranteed hot, dry days and hours of blissful sunshine. Thessaly's a destination brimming with myth and legend: Jason began his search for the Golden Fleece at its Magnesia Peninsula, and the Plain of Thessaly hosted the battle between the Olympians and the Titans. For slightly more grounded history however, you need look no further than Attica: choose an apartment near the Acropolis, or a villa in the heart of Athens.
