Rural retreats (22086)

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.

What an amazing week !! Not only did we improve our painting technique and develop our visual accuracy but also immersed ourselves in the beauty and variety of the countryside. We were completely spoi… More

Thank you all for your lovely comments. Your time here was also an incredibly enjoyable and rewarding one for us, expanding as it did from painting into sculpture and poetry and with much laughter interspersed within the more serious painting moments. Your enthusiasm for "Le Pichet" and the surrounding Couserans (both mountains and architecture) which you portrayed so beautifully in your paintings, is something which will stay in our memory for a very long time, and we too look forward to continuing our friendship.

Thank you for your beautiful and evocative description of our garden and its views-one of balmy, scented September evenings which I think longingly of in the depths of winter cold (although winters here are also incredibly beautiful). We feel privileged that you think this was your best holiday to date; and were very impressed by the paintings you both produced from the viewpoint on the Tuc de Peyre Mensongere. Hopefully you will feel inspired to continue with your art.

Thank you for your kind comments. Mountain weather can as you know never be predicted, and it is unfortunate that he weather was unseasonally unkind for August but this does nevertheless give rise to some amazing cloud effects both on walks and for painting. We are very glad that it has not detracted from your enjoyment in any way, but sorry that you did not see many of the amazing views around here.Our local market, however, is a joy whatever the weather, full of colour and amazing characters, and we were pleased to be able to share it with you.
