Escape to the country – book a beautiful rural retreat! Choose from cosy country cottages, exquisitely converted farmhouses and Mediterranean-style fincas bursting with character.
Rural retreats provide the perfect setting for total relaxation. See our holiday cottages in Cornwall, the Cotswolds and the Lake District, or find a cottage with a mesmerising backdrop in Snowdonia or the Scottish Highlands. Further afield, explore the tranquillity and native wildlife in France, Italy or Spain from your own gite or trullo.
Some of our rural retreats come complete with private pools, BBQs, Jacuzzis and real log fires. They make perfect bases for hiking, cycling, fishing, or simply enjoying the peace and fresh air of the great outdoors.

Thankyou very much for taking the time to write such a comprehensive, honest review of our casa ! I think this will give future guests a great idea of the accommodation as well as Casarabonela itself.

Many thanks for your positive comments. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay and found the people of Peebles welcoming and friendly. You are not the only ones to enjoy pre-dinner drinks in the Tontine-their cocktails are also very popular with us locals! I take on board with your comments regarding the steep stairs to the rooftop terrace and sitting room and will double check that this is made clear in our property description. Hope to see you again for some further R&R.
