Top 3 singles holidays for teachers this half term

Congratulations! You’ve survived half a term of mischievous students and demanding parents. You teachers deserve a good holiday this half term. But what are the best holidays for teachers to unwind?

Kate, a teacher from London, said, “I love travelling with my partner. But he’s not a teacher, he doesn’t have quite as many holidays. So I just go solo. Why not?”

So go solo. Some peace and quiet would probably be just what you need right now.

But don’t get us wrong – travelling solo doesn’t mean you’ll be alone. Here are our top 3 singles holidays for teachers who want both the freedom of travelling solo and the company of amazing like-minded people, with very low or no single supplements.

Located in the stunning hills of Tuscany, you’ll be a world away from that classroom with your own gorgeous ensuite room and delicious healthy Italian meals prepared for you. And the best thing is when you arrive and how long you stay for is entirely up to you, giving you the freedom to plan your week off just how you like it.
