From Cappadocia to the mountains of Montenegro via sublime beaches in Morocco or the Sporades: new direct flights enrich the offer of sunny destinations from Paris.
A small lively island in the Sporades archipelago, Skiathos has, in addition to one of the most impressive airports (the “Saint-Martin” of Greece), around sixty beaches, each as heavenly as the next. Yes, the island is certainly the busiest and most touristic of the Sporades. But given its rich and verdant natural setting, its sea caves, its monasteries or its fortress, it is easy to understand why.
On departure from Paris-Orly, up to two flights per week from April 23 until September 24, with Transavia.
The ancient capital of the Kingdom of Asturias, founded in the 8th century, is a perfect destination to discover the marvels of pre-Romanesque art. In the old town with its medieval atmosphere, stops are a must at the Gothic cathedral, the archaeological museum (retracing centuries of Asturian art, from prehistory to the Romanesque, passing through the Roman and Visigoth periods), the palace of the Marquis of San Félix, and of course in a figures (cider bar). But Oviedo is also a very good starting point to discover its Costa Verde, dotted with fishing villages.

Dakhla is a pearl of the desert, located on the borders of the Sahara and the Atlantic Ocean, where sand and water mingle. The old Villa Cisneros, where the heroes of airmail once stopped, has more recently become the world capital of kitesurfers. In Dakhla, ideally located on an endless sandy lagoon, the temperature and the wind are mild and regular all year round. Many original eco-lodges have emerged there in recent years, on the initiative of the Moroccan authorities, who want to develop responsible tourism there.
