The Canary Islands

Go star-spotting in the Canary Islands region, which boasts incredibly clear skies, while in the day you can explore lava lakes and volcanic views. If you're visiting La Palma, stay at the £43-a-night traditional house Casa Los Geranois or try B&B Olio la Palma for a still-reasonable £77 a night. There's also crimson colonial mansion Finca las Longueras – the oldest in the Canaries- in Gran Canaria, offering rooms for £94 a night. [Photo: Getty]
