Mountain meadows are festooned with wildflowers come spring, and places like the Alps, the Dolomites and the Pyrenees are perfect for long walks below the snowline. Or you may prefer to take a rural break in the UK once the grey skies have lifted and the mud of winter has receded to reveal carpets of bluebells and daffodils. Meanwhile, southern Europe’s beaches and coves enjoy brilliant weather but without the crowds, the inflated prices and the heat of summer. Wherever you like to take a spring break in Europe, we’d love to hear about it.
If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.
