Does anyone have an idea how to say "A cheval sur le week-end" in English ?

My sentence is "Ce serait bien si tu pouvais venir 3-4 jours ici, à cheval sur un week-end, comme ça je peux te consacrer plus de temps".

Thanks guys!

    "à cheval sur" literally means "astride" so I was going to suggest "a long weekend". There would seem to be a connection with the phrase "faire le pont"..."make a long weekend of it".
