Community, Announcements


As the nation eagerly plans their next sunshine getaway, why not take inspiration from some of the amazing locations featured in Netflix’s most watched shows over the last 12 months? From the gritty medieval streets of The Witcher’s Continent, to the polished perfection of Paris, there are plenty of cinematic worlds to look forward to exploring this year.  

As Netflix celebrates its 200 millionth subscription, we have compiled the ultimate destination wish-list for any boxset buff looking to immerse themselves even further into their favourite series.  

The Queen’s Gambit

The Queen’s Gambit was perhaps one of the biggest surprises on Netflix last year, with the 1960s period drama focused on chess encapsulating the nation. The series oozed charm and sophistication, featuring an array of wonderfully majestic building interiors, many of which situated in the heart of Berlin. Jet2CityBreaks has some beautiful vintage inspired hotels based in Germany’s capital to transport any avid Queen’s Gambit fan to the centre of this iconic series, and provide the perfect base from which to go location spotting. 

The Witcher

Based on the classic fantasy drama by Polish Writer Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher is famed for its stunning and atmospheric world dubbed ‘the Continent’. With locations Inspired by the Old Town area of Krakow, Witcher fans should look no further than staying right in the heart of the Polish capital. Jet2CityBreaks features an array of luxury hotels, many of which encompass classic medieval features to make any Witcher fan feel as though they have been transported right to the heart of ‘the Continent’.  

Emily in Paris

The glitz, the glamour, Emily in Paris has it all. The city of love is nearly as much the main character in this Sex and the City style sitcom, as Emily. With shots of the iconic Eifel Tower to the smallest, off-the-beaten-track, cafés and restaurants, this series will make any fan yearn to be whisked away to this romantic capital. Jet2CityBreaks has a host of fantastic, classic Parisian hotels on offer, allowing guests to dive straight into the elegance and culture this city is famous for. 

White Lines

A tense and unpredictable thriller set on the paradisal island of Ibiza, White Lines has to be one of the biggest rollercoaster rides of 2020. Between the seat-grabbing scenes, are breathtaking panoramas of the island in all its beauty, which for those of us in lockdown, offers the perfect sense of escapism as the narrative itself. Rally up your friends, as Jet2Villas has you covered for the perfect group getaway, with some of the best villas on the island.
