Water sports holidays (2107)

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.

"A Jewel in the Crown gives you a real taste of France"

We stayed in this Old 18th Century house which is typically French and has been sympathetically renovated by the Owner. Situated in the pretty village of Descartes, the nearby tourist information with… More

We indeed, as it is said, renewed this old house, with the help of craftsmen wishing to maintain the local skills (tiled floors of old clay, coating of lime + sand, hemp thermal insulation, usw..) while maintaining the original aspect of Touraine. Maybe it was disturbing for somebody used to modern housing. That could explain the "terrible" and ununderstandable review the house obtain last week.

"une maison poétique"

Que ceux qui cherchent confort standard et maison stéréotypée s'abstiennent ! C'est une vieille maison qui traverse les époques, les histoires, les familles et qui nous a offert un espace de car… More

Voisine de la maison natale de René Descartes (Ce gentilhomme français..., 1596-1650), mais largement remaniée au cours des siècles, la maison garde le souvenir des époques traversées: anneaux pour attacher les chevaux, puits partagé, vaste cheminée,cuves à vin, vitrages artisanaux, etc. Située au lieu-dit "Les Vigneaux" séparé de "la ville" par une rue qui descend vers la rivière, la maison bénéficie des commerces et de l'animation de l"hypercentre" sans en avoir les inconvénients décrits par René Boylesve (contemporain de Marcel Proust): demeures anciennes et sombres qui entourent l'hôtel de ville. Ayant eu la chance d'acheter la maison "dans son jus", nous l'avons rénovée avec le confort d'aujourd'hui en préservant au maximum l'ancienne demeure. Pas facile pourtant d'installer lave-linge et sèche-linge dans une maison où la grande lessive (annuelle ?) réunissait les lavandières au bord de la rivière. Au prix de supprimer une douche, nous aménageons ce mois-ci (fin 4/12/2013), un espace laverie bien équipé et accessible au rez-de-chaussée de la maison. Les simples vitrages des fenêtres anciennes vont être doublés pour l'isolation thermique et phonique (le pas des chevaux ayant laissé la place aux pétarades, rares mais gênantes des motos et des camions.)

We very much regret that Mike was not fully satisfied.We actually had a specific PB in spring 2014 due an abnormal amount of rain, inducing infiltrations in the bathroom.This is now behind us.This bathroom, which is now OK, but "basic" will be renovated in the coming months. But we will do our best to keep our prices as affordable as possible !
