Rural retreats (21881)

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.

Thank you for the positive review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I would like to respond to the niggles reported. The multi-socket power adapter went missing after the previous guests left and we didn't notice. But thanks to the excellent management team they replaced it immediately after you alerted them. The oven is now rectified, thanks for the report. Satellite TV is something that we may add in the future, but right now DVD media is the only option and this is reflected in the pricing.

What a lovely review! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment .. its the last thing you have time to do when you get back into normal life after a holiday and we appreciate it. Our family think exactly the same thing of course but that is hardly the point! We can't be in Spain all the time, all with busy lives and love to share with others what is, to us, a very special place. Its great when people enjoy the house as much as we do.

Delighted you weren't disappointed! Sometimes a second visit can be a bit of a let-down but not this time. We're so glad you all had another excellent holiday at Casa Louisa.

We are all delighted you enjoyed your holiday at Casa Louisa! We all work hard to make sure this spacious house shines, the pool sparkles and that everything works to a tee. The setting is stunning of course but you need to be very comfortable to relax and enjoy. And yes .. its not a place if you want razamataz! I guess its the peace, tranquility and gorgeous views that appeal to us. We never go to the beach to swim either. We prefer the pool, the inland mountain lakes and rivers!
