I've asked this before I think, and it isn't about UK or Ireland, but whatever.

We've just cancelled the big holiday we had planned for Easter for a number of reasons. I'm not sure yet what we'll do, but regardless, I'm always on the look out for European (or reasonably close) destinations where it's possible to eat vegan but relax - i.e not be in a big city. Or a big city that's close to beaches, swimming pools and relaxing things. And is doable on public transport. Has anyone any ideas? Ideally it'd be warmer than here but not baking at Easter, but we're not especially tied to Easter anymore.

I'm not sure if this is the answer you're looking for exactly, but for the last few years my boyfriend and I have always made sure we went self catering. That has been an apartment in Paris, a gite in Normandy, a cottage in Scotland, an apartment in Andalucia, and soon again an apartment in Paris. We find that going to the supermarket and stocking up means you can comfortably eat vegan and still go out for meals if you like. Just make sure there is a dishwasher!

I've booked almost all my accommodation through this site: http://www.holiday-rentals.co.uk/

Apartments can be very reasonable, though Easter will be a busy time.

That's it, Liz. Cancel Vietnam and hit those not at all spammy links.

^ Barca is ace! I loved it there and had not problems at all eating. I visited Juicy Jones many times (small place just off Las Ramblas that serves vegan fare at a great price). Also tapas by the bucket load and as we had an apartment we made breakfast and salads and things for when we wanted to eat in.

I also loved Madrid and found a few vegan places to eat there. Cant remember excatly but there was an organic place off Plaza Mayor which was fantastic.

Went to Ibizia for the first time last year in May and had a totally different experience than the one I thought I would have. Really chilled out and quiet but with a some life if you wanted it. Beautiful beaches too. We had a car and pootled round the island. The markets were great too with lots of funky cheap rings and things. Cant remember the name but well worth a visit.

Biarittz was enjoyable too but if I was going there for more than a day or two I would hire a car and head down into Spain for a few days.
