Unusual holiday homes (3003)

Looking for something outrageously different for your next holiday? Then take a look at these holiday castles, windmills, yurts and manor houses that are all available for you to book and make your holiday an extraordinary one.


And there’s plenty to choose from: you could set your loved one's heart racing with a fairy-tale break to a French chateau or rent a houseboat in Amsterdam with your pals. Or how about escaping to a cosy log cabin in the mountains, or going glamping on a yurt holiday in Devon or Cornwall.


If stunning and unusual architecture is for you, rent a regal castle in the Scottish Highlands, a quirky lighthouse by the sea or return to a bygone age on a windmill holiday in Greece.

Dear client, Thank you for your review. Please let me clarify the following points : The riad was ready to welcome you when you arrived. However, it is important to explain that, for your comfort, we clean up the patio twice a day. We very seriously look after the pool every day in order to keep a clean and clear water. Regarding food and beverage, it is essential to specify that no food or beverage are included in the riad rental. As a guest house, we offer a bottle of water for 2 and, when lunch or dinner time, a tagine. You have booked the all riad, which is not the same. All services are duly listed on the website. However, I'm sorry to remind you that we did indeed offer several bottles of water as soon as you arrived ! Please refer to the riad's page, you will see that this is absolutely not included. We are happy to do so though. Moreover, no staff is normally included in the riad rental... Regarding coffee, it is specified on the menu available in the all riad that Nespresso is charged 3 €. Classical coffee is included. It is important to specify that you refused to pay the espresso, which haven't been charged. We are very glad to read that you overall enjoyed the riad and it's location. We do all our best to make our clients happy. From our point of view, you cannot honestly make us responsible for services which are not included in the booking, and moreover please consider the fact that we offer services not included. I do hope to welcome you again and wish you all the best. Warm smiles Jerome
