Weekend Getaways from Geneva ... to somewhere warm!

I want to surprise the hubby with a weekend trip for his birthday, yet I have no ideas where to go! Our ideal weekend trip would be somewhere where we can sun & swim, eat like kings and of course, isn't too far from Geneva (by flight).

I was thinking about Olbia, Sardinia, since the flight from Geneva is 'cheap as chips' and I adore all things Italian. Has anyone been there? Would you recommend it?

Big thanks!!
Spatzl

Have you considered Montreux?! It seems to meet all your requirements although I don't believe they have an airport.

Sardinia would be a great weekend away and I wish you luck with keeping it a surprise!

Corsica is also another top venue for a quick break ... Propriano is particularly nice this time of year ....www.propriano.net

Hi Spatzl, I haven't been to Olbia, but I have heard it is lovely. Other alternatives from Geneva to sunny places by the sea include
Alicante, Ibiza, Malaga, Nice & Palma with Easyjet. All should have good eating!

Have fun!
