Get away to...Sweden

Looking forward to a long summer holiday getting to know your family again after the all-consuming tasks of term time? Maybe camping or in a cottage or villa? But what about you and your partner? Can you remember what you first saw in each other? If the answer's a blank, park the children with your relatives for a night and book a romantic weekend for the two of you to make a little night music in Sweden, where summer nights are long and light.

The Nordic, a luxury design hotel in Stockholm, has a one-night offer for pound;99 per person (based on two sharing, of course), weekends only, all summer - if you can't wait until the end of term, you get bubbly to drink, bubbles to bathe in, chocolate-coated fruit, and bathrobes to lounge in, and breakfast in bed.

And if all that makes you feel too hot and bothered, the hotel has recently opened the world's first year-round ice bar, where your refreshing drinks come in glasses made of ice.

Details and booking: SAS offers return flights from pound;120 pp including taxes: 0845 607 27 727. Further information: Swedish Travel and Tourism Council, freephone 00 800 3080 3080, or email
