Surprise your partner by whisking them away to a romantic retreat. We have plenty of holiday lets around the world that the owners say have that certain je ne sais quoi. They're perfect for Valentine’s Day, an anniversary or just because you fancy treating them to something special.
Explore your passionate side on a European city break in Paris, Venice or Rome, or lock yourselves away for a few days in a countryside hideaway in the Cotswolds, Lake District or Scottish Highlands. For a sumptuous backdrop for wooing your loved one, book an exotic beach break in Barbados or Thailand.
Also available to book are grand chateaux, quirky houseboats, lavish penthouse suites and fairy-tale towers. For that extra special touch choose a place with a bubbling hot tub, steamy sauna or mesmerising log fire.

We're very glad that you enjoyed your stay at The Hobogîte for your "get-away-from-it-all" escape, and we're delighted that you particularly enjoyed the gardens and pool area.
It is such a shame that some of the shine was taken off your enjoyment of the stay by the difficulties of providing Broadband in our part of rural France. We recently "upgraded" to satellite, as it seems we're just too far from our telephone exchange for normal broadband. At least this provides a reliable connection (if rather slow at times) and, as you say, all the local cafés, supermarkets, etc. provide free Wi-Fi.
Lene and I were are so happy to hear that you both had such a good time at The Hobogîte, getting full enjoyment both from the futuristic "shower pod" in the house and the (huge) old stone Wet Room by the pool. By the way, do you think we should patent the special "parasol holes" around the pool, they are rather nifty, aren't they?
Thanks again for coming, and we hope to see you again.
