You have probably heard more about Israel on the news than you have in the travel sector, but as soon as you set foot on an Israel holiday you will see that this stunning country is miles from what you might expect. The changing landscapes, which range from lush, green hills to barren, yellow deserts, are marked with the beautiful golden domes of temples and shrines, and the beaches along the Mediterranean are an absolute dream. This is a country which begs to be discovered, and a holiday apartment in Israel is the perfect base from which to do it. It is advised you consult official travel safety warnings before taking an Israel holiday in the current climate of political instability.
Israel is adorned with spectacular attractions, whether archaeological, historical or biblical, and there are no end of sites to visit from Israel holiday apartments and tours to take during an Israel holiday. The ancient sites of Jerusalem need little introduction, but the cosmopolitan shopping streets of Tel Aviv may!
The mud of the Dead Sea has been used for remedial purposed for many centuries. People still flock to Israel holiday apartments along the shores of the Dead Sea for spa retreats and holidays in which pure pampering is an essential holiday necessity.
The Mediterranean beaches, and those that surround the Red Sea, are a beach lovers dream. Endless soft sands stretch into the distance, marked only by the bright canopies of parasols and bronze of sun-kissed bodies. There are a huge range of beach resorts, from the impossibly chic and elegant to the more secluded and peaceful. The scuba diving available on an Israel holiday is absolutely fantastic, especially in the Red Sea, which is home to a remarkable array of sea life.
Jerusalem is one of the world’s most highly regarded cities, and the amazing volume, size and importance of holy sites you will see from an Israel holiday villa in the city will very quickly prove why. The city is hugely important to many millions of people, and there is a character that is simply cannot be replicated.
The beautiful Mediterranean Coast of Israel is a stunning place to relax in the sun. The famous city of Tel Aviv somehow managed to offer both a vibrant, glamorous city environment and a relaxing, sand strewn beach resort, where culture, history and shopping meet in such large volumes that you need a few weeks in a holiday apartment in Israel to even scratch the surface. If you would prefer to really relax, far from the noise of an interntaitonal city, an Israel holiday villa in Eilat is an excellent choice for an Israel holiday.
Israel enjoys a blissfully warm Mediterranean climate, which brings long, hot, dry summers lasting from the beginning of May right through until October. Daily temperatures during this period soar into the 30’s (°C) during the day, and rain is rare.
Holidays to Israel are easy to take, with two international airports (Negev (VDA) and Tel Aviv (TLV)) both receiving direct flights from the UK. ThomsonFly and British Airways provide direct services to both airports.
