Self catering holidays on any budget

The beauty of self-catering holidays is that you are in complete control; from what you eat for breakfast (including cooking your eggs just the way you like them!) to which wine you enjoy with your evening meal at night.

That's not even including making the lovely choice between whether you want to stay in the Balearics, or the Canaries, or maybe one of the Greek Islands. With self catering holidays, you can spend your day enjoying your hotel's excellent facilities and then head out in the afternoon for a spot of exploring; enjoy a picnic, dine on some delicious fresh fish at the beach or shop in the local markets for local delicacies and even cook up a storm back at the hotel. This is often a good way of keeping expenditure low during your holiday, making self-catering holidays some of our cheapest holidays.

loveholidays has an excellent range of cheap self catering holidays available to help you plan the perfect break; whether you fancy heading to somewhere in SpainGreece or the Canaries, or maybe somewhere a little more exotic! Whether you're travelling as a family, couple or group of friends, we've got a self catering holiday for everyone.

Self catering holidays to Portugal

Self catering holidays to Portugal

We have a range of cheap self catering holidays in sun-drenched destinations. Portugal and the Algarve are a cheap and cheerful getaway. With over 20 stunning beaches near to Albufeira in the Algarve, and 300 days of sunshine per year, a self-catering holiday to Portugal is just a short flight from London. Albufeira is a large resort town with a charming old town where you can sample some delicious Portuguese delights.

The Algarve is known for its quaint fishing villages and full-on resorts, so you can get the best of both worlds: local tapas and international cuisine! One popular dish in the Algarve is caldeirada, or fish stew! But the Algarve is also known for its seafood and you're bound to find plenty of fresh produce at the small, local markets dotted up and down the coast, often situated snugly between the Algarve's large resort towns like Lagos, Vilamoura and Albufeira.

Self catering holidays to the Canary Islands

Self catering holidays to the Canary Islands

The Canary Islands are a great option if you're travelling as a family, with a range of hotels offering self catering apartments aimed at keeping the whole family happy. Lanzarote, Tenerife and Fuerteventura are our top picks of the Canaries. Self catering holidays to the Canaries don’t have to break the bank, either. There are plenty of cheap deals on self catering holidays here at loveholidays, and when you arrive in the Canaries you can eat the way you like, as cheaply as you like. All the Canaries boast a seafood based cuisine with Spanish elements, you’ll have to try it whether you stay on Lanzarote or Tenerife.

On both Lanzarote and Tenerife, or any of the Canaries for that matter, you'll find a typically Canarian cuisine comprised mainly of seafood, often served with a delicious red sauce, mojo rojo. Self catering holidays to the Canaries are perfect because the islands aren't massive, and if you're out exploring rather than sat by the pool, you're bound to see many of the best sights!
