A poll of 1,826 British holidaymakers has found the â€˜dream holidayâ€™ would be ideally three weeks long.
The study, by online travel agent www.sunshine.co.uk, found 67% said three weeks would be ideal.
â€œI was surprised three weeks was considered a perfect holiday for the majority, as I really thought it would be longer,â€ said Chris Brown, the companyâ€™s co-founder.
â€œWhen we looked more into it, however, we found that 41% thought they would miss home by the fourth week. Itâ€™s really interesting to break it down like this and see all the factors that make up a 'perfect' holiday for the majority.â€
The survey also found that the optimum temperature would be 28Â°c on average, while the dream choice of accommodation for most (78%) was a private villa.
When asked how far they would like their accommodation to be from the beach, 59% of people stated 100 meters would be perfect.
Some 81% said Â£1000 per week would be the perfect amount of spending money and 98% said their dream holiday would be on an all-inclusive basis. However, 76% would also like to eat out every evening.
