A good old ‘view’, a nice old ‘landscape’, that’s all you need sometimes, isn’t it? To just stand on a big rock somewhere and have a look out onto the sea – nice and relaxing, lovely and calm, you are finally at one with nature. Now, to the pub.

But where are you going to give your eyes the most exhilarating rollercoaster ride? You’ve got quite a big arena to be playing with here, lots of countries to go to, not much time – it would pay to make an informed decision.
