Short breaks (1301)

Get away from it all with a short break to a stunning weekend retreat. Whether you have a couple of nights or a long weekend to spare, a short break at one of these holiday homes is a sure fire way to recharge your batteries.



For long weekends away you could fill up on tapas from an apartment in Barcelona. Or hop on the Eurostar for city breaks in Paris, Brussels or Avignon.

Alternatively combine a mini break in one of the apartments in London with a show in the West End. Or live the good life in a choice of holiday cottages in the Cotwsolds, Cornwall or the Lake District.

Whatever you're looking for out of a short break, there's a villa, cottage or penthouse suite with your name on it!
