SantoriniThis prize draw is now closed. See new prize draw for July.

This month we are celebrating single travellers with a wonderful prize from our partner, Solos Holidays, who have over 30 years’ experience taking those travelling by themselves on marvellous holidays, whether it be a short break in the UK, a golfing holiday, a European exploration and activity trip, or a journey further afield. You’ll be in safe hands! 

Our winner will be travelling for 7 nights to truly gorgeous Santorini, which has captivated travellers for years, to stay at the welcoming Villa Maistrali, an exclusive-use ClubSolos property, in Perissa. With comfortable, cheerful accommodation, this family-run hotel is just yards from the Blue Villa Maistrali, SantoriniFlag beach and boosts 2 rooftop pools on a spacious terrace, perfect for relaxing or a companionable evening drink. Santorini is an enchanting island, famous for magical sunsets, white-washed houses, vivid blue domes and towering cliffs to the east, all surrounded by the sparkling azure Aegean Sea. It has stunning panoramic views which offer superb photo opportunities. The island’s interior is dotted with vineyards and traditional villages, such as Pyrgos, far away in atmosphere from the more populated coast and well worth a visit.

Solos Holidays provide a tour manager with each of their holidays: someone to manage the logistics of your trip, suggest the best days out or restaurants and share their local knowledge. Often, they’ll accompany the group on a spontaneous evening outing, so you don’t have to worry about being alone with strangers. And very quickly, your fellow holidaymakers will become friends!

This is a really wonderful prize for all single travellers.

    I have not been to the Greek islands for 23 years my last trip was after my mothers death from cancer. I had been her carer for five years as she battled the disease and was physically and emotionally exhausted after her death. my friends arranged for me to spend a week in Aegina. it was beautiful and helped me a great deal

    I've just returned from a lovely holiday to Cyprus on my own. I used to go away alone regularly when family left home, so have no fears about travel arrangements, though I do object to the single person supplement. I take a couple of good books, and just relax in the shade, swimming frequently, taking walks along the beach, enjoying superb food and a bit of local shopping. Trips and tours are available if you're new to the area. Everyone is friendly, but you have to enjoy your own company.

    I think it's a great idea for people to holiday alone - get to know who you are without all the daily distractions.

    Oh the chance of relaxing in the sun on my own but knowing there are others with me as well. A fab combination. Never been to Santorini

    My last visit to Santorini was over 30 years ago with my late husband. I feel it’s time to return to maybe relive some very happy memories.

    When I was at my local Charity Shop yesterday, I saw a Haematite bracelet. The packaging said it was "thought to be" good for Inspiration and Courage.
    I wonder if one would help lone travellers to feel braver?

    would love to visit Thira, the capital which is perched on top of the caldera rim. I went to Greece many years ago to visit my daughter who was working there for a while, and vowed I would one day re-visit and go to some of the places I didn't get to go and see.........maybe this is the time (fingers crossed)

    do you know the history of santorini. last year 2 Million passengers went to the island by plane .On wed 27of june next there will be 5 cruise boats delivering 12,000 passengers between 7 am and 2 pm.. that's not to mention the ferry.
    choose when you go and enjoy an unique place but do read about it first..
    I would love to go again . I have along list of all the things to see that I missed when I was there two years ago - just for one day.
    Now I would need a month to see all there is to be seen.
