Leave the car at home and explore Europe by train. We’ve got plenty of holiday homes conveniently located near train stations serviced by high-speed rail across Europe. So don’t sit in traffic – reduce your carbon footprint and arrive at your holiday destination in comfort and with minimum delays.
High-speed train travel allows you to kick back and enjoy breath-taking views of Europe while you travel. Plus, unlike air travel, there are no weight restrictions on luggage. See the continent from a different perspective by hopping on the Eurostar and arrive in style on Spain's AVE, or make your way through France on the TGV.
Whether you're looking for stylish apartments in Cannes, Barcelona boltholes or Amsterdam holiday houseboats, travelling by train opens up a world of possibilities.
