As the Autumn leaves begin to paint the world in russet hues in Northern Europe, October beckons with the promise of unforgettable travel experiences. Whether you’re seeking some late-season sunshine, high culture or rambunctious festivals, we’ve got you covered at Karma!
1. Crete, Greece
Crete in October is a haven of mild temperatures and fewer crowds. Explore ancient ruins like the Palace of Knossos, relax on the stunning beaches, and savour traditional Greek cuisine, epitome of the fabled Mediterranean diet. Karma Minoan, nestled on the Northern coast of Crete, offers luxurious accommodations with breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea.
2. Munich/Bavaria, Germany
October in Munich of course means Oktoberfest, the world-renowned celebration of beer, culture, and music. But Bavaria has more to offer besides, from fairytale castles like Neuschwanstein to the picturesque Bavarian Alps. Experience it all while staying at Karma Bavaria, a charming Alpine retreat close to Lake Schliersee.
3. Tuscany, Italy
Tuscany’s rolling vineyards and historic towns come alive in October – but with a little more room to breathe. Enjoy wine tasting in Chianti, explore Florence’s art treasures, and savour Tuscan cuisine with liberal helpings of local truffles. And Karma Borgo di Colleoli, our 17th-century hamlet turned resort is as authentic a Tuscan experience as you can get – why not experience it with our upcoming Karma Curated Experience adventure later this month – there are still a few places left!
4. Carcassonne, France
Carcassonne’s mediaeval citadel is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a must-see destination. Explore its cobblestone streets, visit the castle, and savour rustic French cuisine at its best – the cassoulet is a must! Stay at stately Chateau de Samary with its substantial grounds and outdoor pool for a peaceful and opulent experience in the heart of the French countryside.
5. Andalusía, Spain
After the stifling heat of Summer, October brings pleasantly warm weather to Andalusia. Discover the rich cultural heritage of cities like Seville, Granada, and Cordoba, relax on the Costa del Sol’s golden beaches, explore whitewashed villages – all from the comforts of Karma La Herriza, nestled in the hills just a short drive from the coast. Solo travellers – Karma Curated Experience once again has you covered!
