Best European Weekend Breaks for Spring

May is around the corner, and as the annual snow begins to melt and rivers flow freely in Europe there’s no doubt that spring is in the air.

If you’re still feeling the final chills of winter, what better way to warm up for the 2019 summer season than by taking a weekend break to a warm destination in Europe?

Here are five exclusive destinations you can reach via private jet charter from anywhere in Europe for some warm sunshine.

Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast

We’re starting our list with a luxury destination you may not have visited yet - but this hidden gem is not to be missed.

Croatia’s coastal region features beautiful beaches, clear waters, and a selection of excellent hotels.

The Dalmation Coast is one of Croatia’s best vacation offerings. Resembling Italy’s Amalfi Coast, this region combines excellent accommodation, delicious local and European cuisine, and friendly, welcoming locals.

For sea lovers, the Dalmation Coast’s selection of charter yachts - complete with crew and full amenities - is the ideal way to navigate the coastline and the region’s offshore islands.

The Dalmation Coast is reachable by private jet, with terminals in the cities of Dubrovnik and Zadar.


If you’re a fan of Spanish culture and would love an island break, Mallorca may be the ideal destination.

Part of the Balearic islands, Mallorca offers visitors some of the best luxury beachfront accommodation in Southern Europe.

From 5 star hotels to serviced luxury villas - for sale and rent - Mallorca has something to suit every discerning taste.

Spanish food, wine, and all-night entertainment await visitors to Mallorca after a day of swimming, exploring the island’s beaches, or touring the charming small towns that dot its coastline.

The private jet terminal at Palma de Mallorca Airport is fully equipped and ready to accept private charter flights.

The Greek Islands

If island hopping is your idea of a great weekend away, Greece offers the greatest number and variety of locations in Europe.

Athens and Thessaloniki are the country’s two main cities and gateways to the islands. You can also save time by flying to the larger Greek islands like Mykonos, Crete, Kefalonia and others by private charter.

Once you’re soaking up the Greek sunshine, enjoying the delicious cuisine and starting to feel the urge to explore, a charter yacht is the ideal way to see the islands over a day or three.


If culture and history appeal to you, Florence is a must-see city.

With centuries of art, architecture, music and more to choose from, you’ll have a busy but enriching weekend in one of Italy’s great cities.

Founded by the Medici family, one of Italy’s first business dynasties, Florence is a tribute to power and success. The palaces, cathedrals, galleries, and historical buildings that line the streets are a reminder of the city’s glorious past.

Today, Florence combines old and new. While keeping its history alive, the city encourages contemporary artists, musicians, and digital influencers to breathe new life into its cultural life.

Lovers of fine food will want to head for Florence’s collection of Michelin Star restaurants, including the three-starred Enoteca Pinchiorri - one of just six restaurants in Italy to have achieved such high acclaim.

Florence Airport private terminal is the ideal landing point for a weekend in the heart of Italian culture.


Southern Europe isn’t the only place to head for in spring. Geneva, one of Switzerland’s most scenic cities, is famous for its springtime atmosphere.

Geneva is noted for its natural beauty, with lakes and mountains helping to form the city’s picture-perfect landscape.

Lake Geneva, which is always popular with locals and visitors alike, is one of the best places to enjoy the Swiss springtime.

Boating, leisurely strolls, and lunch at one of the fine restaurants in the nearby vicinity are just a few ways to spend a relaxing day near the lake.

Geneva is also home to six wine regions, with eight unique appellations registered in the Canton of Vaud. Many of the vineyards offer open tastings, with expert sommeliers on hand to explain their offerings.

Finally, the nearby alps (Alpes Vaudois) are a great place to spend a day exploring the region by mountain bike. This activity brings nature and sport together perfectly.
