July holidays

Nothing quite beats a July holiday: the school holidays begin, the sun shines bright, and temperatures across Europe rise to their warmest. Of course, this also means that holiday prices rise – it is the high season, after all. But with a little searching, you can make your July holiday both fun-filled and cheap. Book private accommodation through HomeAway, and you'll soon be jetting off on the July break of a lifetime.

We have ample accommodation in the UK if you want to enjoy the English summer, and a range of beautiful rentals further afield across Europe. You could go on a Mediterranean adventure, head for the mountain air of the Alps, or decide on an activity-packed holiday at home. Wherever you choose to spend your July holiday, HomeAway will have the accommodation to suit.

Holidays in July don't get much better than in Tenerife. The largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife offers unparalleled beaches, landscapes and weather. July temperatures top 25°C, and the island gets ten hours of sunshine a day – it's no surprise that this has been a favourite with UK tourists for years. Tenerife is ideal for water sports, sunbathing, or simply sinking your toes into beautiful black sands!

Ibiza is amazing in July, boasting a range of colourful festivals and markets.

July holidays in France: Landes July holidays in France: Landes

Landes in Aquitane is best known for its Côte d’Argents, which attracts surfers and sunbathers from around the world. Its beaches are certainly beautiful, but there is much more in store at its cosmopolitan capital, Mont-de-Marsan. A Landes holiday in July will allow you to attend the Course Landaise bull fight – a staged performance, so no animals are actually hurt! You can also discover spa towns, medieval villages and Roman churches, or simply indulge with a glass of local brandy from Bas Armagnac.

July holidays in Italy: Amalfi Coast July holidays in Italy: Amalfi Coast

There are few places on earth as spectacular as Italy's Amalfi Coast. Green mountains with their ankles in the sea, dotted all over with terraced gardens and the region's characteristic, gleaming white-walled buildings – there's good reason that the Amalfi Coast is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It's also the birthplace of limoncello: this lemon-flavoured liqueur, traditionally served chilled in locally made ceramic cups, is perfect for sipping in the shade on one of the area's famously warm summer days. Temperatures often reach the upper-20s – don't forget your sunscreen!
