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.
“Fantastic holiday” Great apartment, very well located and useful air conditioning in 2 of the 3 bedrooms. 2 balconies with one plenty big enough to accommodate large table and lovely view. Third bedroom only a box room but it's fine. Close to resta
We spent 5 nights in the 3 bedroom apartment in late Sept 2011. We couldn't have asked for a better location - 50 metres from the beach (which we could see from both balconies) and less than 400 metre… More

Si, he disfrutado mucho de la visita de Silvia y su madre. Al principio fue aprehensivo que una señora de tantos años no se ponga a quejar, que lo típico de señoras de avanzada edad. Pero se lanzó a hacer todas las visitas; Santes Creus, que le encantó, y los demás monasterios, donde Poblet la impresionó por su tamaño y la belleza de las alrededores. Las llevé a restaurantes un poco más modestos (10€ el menu con bebida,postre y café incluido), y quedaron sorprendidas que se come mejor por aquí que en Barcelona.
Siempre estoy dispuesto a llevar a visitar los muchos sitios interesantes por aquí a gente que se encantan y disfrutan tanto como esas buenas señoras venezolanas. Creo que el equipamento que menciona refiere al cabina ducha con sauna turco que tenemos en el tercer cuarto de baño en la planta baja al lado de la sala de yoga.
Como está haciendo mucho calor ahora en la costa, yo me quedo en mi pueblo sobre un monticulo, fresco y bien aireado. Todo un placer.
