Water sports holidays (2108)

If you're looking for an active break and aren’t afraid of getting wet, book one of these holiday homes near fantastic water sports destinations worldwide.


Water sports holidays by the sea allow you to spend energetic mornings on the water and lazy afternoons chilling on the beach. Inland destinations near lakes and rivers are less tied to the summer season and can offer great windsurfing, canoeing and sailing throughout the year.


If you’re planning an action-packed holiday, choose a villa or cottage with plenty of home comforts. You’ll really appreciate a bubbling Jacuzzi, steamy sauna or cosy log fire after an active day on the water.

The cockerel of our neighbours should leave us soon as many people conplain about it. Kind thanks for the real good estate of the house when you left and your great comments here.

"Comfortable, charming, fine view and good base for exploring the area"

We stayed in this charming house in the small village of Montazels during March and April. Three large bedrooms, a good sized dining room as well as a den and kitchen. One bathroom only. Did not appea… More

Thank you for taking the time to review Maison de Vigne. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. No, we don't have air conditioning. In the days when these cottages were built I guess they knew how to keep a place cool in summer and warm in winter by using thick stone walls. Thank you also for your TV tip. It's good to know that even on holiday in France you can receive your favorite home channels from around the world.

Thank you for your positive comments. Fortunately the vehicle access problem is only temporary and soon to be rectified, unlike reviews which are permanent.
