Rural retreats (19324)

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 your review, and I hope we see you again soon. This time of year can be windy, and all the wind/kite surfers gather for competitions. It is less windy in summer, and hotter, but you can generally guarantee the sunshine, with only a few days now and then of cloud and the odd spot of rain (which can be heavy sometimes), but never lasts long. Flights are getting cheaper too, as more tour operators start coming to Cape Verde from UK, so that should help.
