If you're a keen fisherman, then a week by the river may well be your dream holiday. These holiday homes have all been selected with fishing in mind - private lakes, unlimited fishing, boats, licences and angling tuition are among the attractions.
And if some of your party aren't that keen on fishing, then there's no need to worry. With beautiful countryside and beaches, thriving towns and plenty of home comforts, there's something to make everyone fall hook, line and sinker for these properties.

This reviewer certainly has an appreciation of the spirit of the project in its totality. The surroundings contribute massively to the character and to the ambiance of the holiday home. To compliment the natural local amenities, where all types of outdoor pursuits e.g. walking, cycling swimming, surfing kite and wind surfing hill walking, rock climbing etc. can be enjoyed, the local restaurants provide cuisine to suit all tastes. In less physically demanding moments concerts at the local St. Thomas’s Church and at various other venues can be enjoyed. The cottage of the 1972 Nobel Literature Prize winner, Heinrich Boll, is just over the road, and is just one example of the many gems which one can come across when going walkabout.
