Cuba is beautiful, says Julia Sawalha

Travellers who are considering booking family activity holidays to Cuba may be inspired to do so by the words of actress Julia Sawalha.

The star of BBC One's Lark Rise To Candleford singled out the Latin American island paradise as her favourite holiday destination in an interview with The Telegraph.

Ms Sawalha explained that after visiting Cuba three years ago, she was won over by the country's culture and sightseeing opportunities.

"Cuba is such a beautiful country and everywhere you go there's music and people dancing, especially in Havana," she said. "Architecturally it's stunning, too - dilapidated in a beautiful way."

It was wonderful, she said, to be able to get away from Western commercialism during her holiday to the island. While there, she said she was "amazed" not to see any adverts for consumer products and goods like Coca-Cola.

Anyone who is keen to follow in the footsteps of the actress could choose to book one of The Adventure Company's Viva Cuba! Family Holidays.
