Generic holiday image (Greece)Technically, September is a month of some stasis: summer is over, winter has yet to begin. Of course, this is but one view. For many, autumn signifies a welcome change, as the harvest throws up countless opportunities to eat good food - and imbibe better wine - while the climate makes forays into the countryside magical. Whatever your idea of fun, September is a month worthy of consideration for a holiday; the schools have reopened, meaning resorts are less crowded, while the sun still burnishes the clouds throughout much of the Med. The prices have plummeted, too. 

A September holiday in the UK can be gorgeous and mellow. For many though, the temperatures at home - barring the odd ray of late-summer sunshine - simply aren’t good enough. At HomeAway, you can rent a villa in Mallorca, an apartment in Ibiza or a condo in Bermuda: the choice is yours. Alternatively, you might seek relaxation on a holiday to one of our top September destinations: read on to find out more.


 

Top five September holiday destinations


   

Barcelona Where to go on holiday in September? Visits Barcelona

Barcelona, one of Europe’s great cities, furnishes tourists with a cornucopia of attractions throughout the year. So why September? For starters, the city’s largest street party - La Merce - gets under way at the end of the month. There’s plenty of free activities to experience, including the unforgettable Correfoc Fire Run, in addition to multiple parades, fireworks displays, dances and concerts. September happens, also, to be the month of the National Day of Catalonia, which falls on the 11th. Enjoy!

Malta Where to go on holiday in September? Visits Malta

Criminally underappreciated, Malta has everything you could wish for in a holiday destination: beautiful beaches, radiant sunshine, delicious local food and an abundance of history and culture. Marvel at the architecture in the impressive fortified city of Valletta, bathe in impossibly blue water on Gozo island, or get your shopping on in Sliema - Malta’s retail mecca. September is the month of Victory Day, commemorating various dates in history, and activities are centred around Valleta’s Grand Harbour. Oh, and September weather? Expect temperatures in the high twenties.

Puglia Where to go on holiday in September? Visits Puglia

Summer lasts until the end of September in Puglia, and with crowds thinning out, what better time to visit? Here you’ll find plenty of charming, rocky coves along the coastline, sparkling azure ocean, and vibrant green hills and woods. Spot flamingos on the wonderful sandy beaches of the Torre Guaceto Nature Reserve, sample local hospitality in the quaint seaport town of San Cataldo, and enjoy a picnic aside the shimmering lakes of Laghi Alimini. Oh, and don’t forget to drop in on the wondrous island town of Gallipoli.

Morocco Where to go on holiday in September? Visits Morocco

If you haven’t yet visited Morocco, September is a great month to witness the country at its best. Whether picking through the hectic markets of Marrakech, or devouring history in the old imperial city of Fes - a UNESCO World Heritage site - you’ll be impressed by what this land has to offer. There’s also fun to be had here - for some this might mean spinning over the Sahara’s dunes on a hired sand buggy; for others, laying on one of Agadir’s many golden beaches.

Corsica Where to go on holiday in September? Visits Corsica

The Mediterranean island of Corsica is a mystery to many; but few could be disappointed after a week or two samling its finer points. South of Monaco, west of Rome, the island fuses Italian and French influences, and is as famed for its teeming olive groves and charming fishing villages as it is for its immaculate sand beaches. In September the island fairly empties out, and the opportunity to sample earthy Corsican cooking, from Calvi to Porto Vecchio, should not to be missed!
