Last-minute summer holidays
Set in Mallorca's valley of orange groves (it's rumoured that Louis XIV would only eat the citrus fruit if it had been grown in Sóller), this Jumeirah outpost stretches for a kilometre along the island's north-western coast. The staggered white buildings, linked by stone paths studded with local plants, feature sea-facing suites, a sunset-facing sushi restaurant and a super spa, with a hydrotherapy pool perfectly positioned for taking in the Serra de Tramuntana mountains. Some of the bathrooms have tubs that look out to sea, creating the impression that you're actually on a yacht – rather than just watching the ones peacefully bobbing in the distance. There's also a tapas restaurant up by the infinity pool and a seafood spot serving fish caught that day.
Jumeirah Port Sóller, from £267 a room a night, including breakfast ().
With all the whitewashed, bougainvillea-draped buildings and bright blue backdrops you've probably voyaged to the Cyclades for, the newest Canaves outpost opened on Santorini this summer. The hotel has an Aegean-facing restaurant, a soothing spa and suites with plunge-pool-enhanced terraces. See what all the fuss is about before 20 October.
Canaves Oia Epitome, from about £535 a room a night (canaves.com).
This hotel joined the Psarou Beach party earlier this summer with the usual Mykonos crowd heralding its arrival (Paris Hilton helped get the fun started). Next-door neighbour Nammos Beach Club may be their regular hotspot, but this curvy, contemporary haven is doing its best to compete, offering a slightly quieter alternative, especially in the serene spa. The restaurant serves sublime sushi and Josper-grilled seafood and the mojitos keep on coming at the pool and beach bar. Get in the queue before it closes for the season on 7 October.
Kenshō Psarou, from about £435 a room a night (kenshomykonos.com).
Set in a former monastery in the foothills of Mount Etna, Monaci delle Terre Nere is an eco-friendly design hotel that blends Philippe Starck chairs with chicken coups. There's a vineyard, olive grove and 60 acres of farmland – not to mention views of the famous volcano and classic Sicilian street food a short drive away in Catania. The coast is half an hour from the hotel and the charming owners will gladly arrange a private boat trip for you.
Monaci delle Terre Nere, from about £135 a room a night in low season (monacidelleterrenere.it).
Thanks to its southerly, Adriatic Coast setting, Puglia is still basking in sunshine this month. Don Totu, a boutique hotel a 40-minute drive from Lecce, has a charmingly simple set-up, with just six rooms, no restaurant (but plenty of traditional osterias within a short drive) and helpful multi-tasking staff. Aperitivo hour is hosted by the pool or up on one of the precarious rooftop perches. There are no TVs, but guests are kept busy: Vespas and bicycles are lined up to borrow, wine tastings are held in the cellar, there’s an underground hammam and the owners occasionally bring in chef Raffaele from the lively La Bersagliera restaurant in nearby Surano for cookery classes.
Don Totu, from about £185 a room a night B&B (+39 0836 992374; dontotu.it).
Legend has it that the rock of Es Vedrà, two kilometres off the west coast of Ibiza, is the third most magnetic spot on Earth, after the North Pole and the Bermuda Triangle, and you will certainly feel its pull when staying at Seven Pines Resort. An all-suite sanctuary atop a cliff, it affords guests the utmost privacy and unrivalled sunset views, as well as two world-class restaurants, which serve outstanding Spanish cuisine; the Pure Seven spa, where uplifting treatments use local ingredients such as pine honey and almond oil; a fully equipped gym; alfresco yoga lessons; and even a private yacht.
