Rural retreats (21920)

Escape to the country – book a beautiful rural retreat! Choose from cosy country cottages, exquisitely converted farmhouses and Mediterranean-style fincas bursting with character.



Rural retreats provide the perfect setting for total relaxation. See our holiday cottages in Cornwall, the Cotswolds and the Lake District, or find a cottage with a mesmerising backdrop in Snowdonia or the Scottish Highlands. Further afield, explore the tranquillity and native wildlife in France, Italy or Spain from your own gite or trullo.



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.

Unfortunately, wifi problems made life difficult for this guest, who needed to keep in touch with his work. There is currently no wifi directly connected to this property but a portable wifi dongle can be supplied by the resort. One was ordered for the guest. Unfortunately, it seems that the resort had none remaining when he arrived. It was peak season and they were all out on hire. One was eventually made available. This is the first time, in my experience, that this has happened. I texted the guest to suggest various locations where free wifi might be found but it seems that none were up to the download job required. Clearly these are technical issues and I’m not sure if this was (when connection was established) the result of slow download speeds. I find this a big problem in my part of England and it seems that even certain regions of the UK vary greatly in terms of download speed. Someone living in a region where fast speeds are the norm might not be aware of this. ‘Which’ Computing Magazine recently stated that, ‘According to OFCOM’s Dec’14 Infrastructure Report there are people in every Local Authority across the country (UK) receiving shockingly low download speeds of zero to 0.2 Mbps from their service providers. Connection speeds are restricted by the technology used and that, in turn, is largely down to where you live.’ I would imagine, therefore, it not uncommon to find areas of Portugal where download speeds are low, particularly at certain times of the day. The dongles provided by the resort have always served me reasonably well but I only check emails or browse web pages. The guest also described the beds at the property as ‘rock hard‘. They are certainly quite firm, especially the ‘superking’ in the master bedroom. All the beds are relatively new and this is the first time anyone has complained about their firmness. The guest also commented that 2 sun umbrellas had been damaged by strong winds. Indeed, they had but the previous guests had not reported this to Reception or myself as they had remained in Portugal for another week or so. The resort had not picked up on this either. As soon as I read of the damage in this guest’s review I asked the property manager to have them replaced. Hopefully, this helps explain some of the negative aspects contained in the review. There are, of course, a number of positive ones there, too!

Thank you so much for writing a review about Les Vignes Anciennes; it’s always good to hear that guests have enjoyed their stay at our villa. As the local team got a very positive mention in your review, we have sent a copy to our House Manager. Hopefully she will pass this on to the cleaner, who obviously deserves a lot of praise for maintaining the high standard of cleanliness that you mention. We are glad that you found your evening walks to the centre of Pezenas an easy stroll away; we think it’s a great advantage not to have to drive back home after visiting restaurants or bars! Many thanks again for finding the time to write a review. You would, of course, be very welcome to return to Les Vignes Anciennes at any time in the future.
