Explore the peace and tranquillity of the Mediterranean from a rural retreat. We have thousands of rural retreats near the Mediterranean, perfect for getting away from it all.
Choose from French holiday gites in the Dordogne and Loire Valley, or Spanish farmhouses and fincas in beautiful Catalonia. Island life on Crete or the Ionian Islands in Greece is even more charming in a rustic holiday cottage, and the idyllic rolling countryside of Tuscany is an ideal setting for true relaxation.
Some of our rural retreats come complete with private pools, BBQs, Jacuzzis and real log fires. They make perfect bases for hiking, cycling, fishing, or simply enjoying the peace and fresh air of the great outdoors.
