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.

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.

Very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our villa and that it more than lived up to your expectations. We appreciate the pictures and are happy to welcome you back to Goa next season. We can actually accommodate upto 8 people in the villa as the 2 large cane sofas are the same size and width of 2 adult single beds. The lush coconut groves and surrounding paddy fields along with the magnificent Varca beach just 200 meters walk from the complex make this one of the most sort after locations in South Goa. We will pass on your thanks to the housekeeper Amelia and the local taxi firm all staffed by local villagers who really appreciate the guests who come to their village and provide much welcome revenue.
