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!

Hi. Thanks so much for your review. We love to get the feedback as we love Chateau d'oex so much and its great to hear that other people have had a good time too. It's also really kind of you to take the time to share the specific things you enjoyed to help other people with their stay. We provide lots of information but other people's experiences are so helpful as well. Often we have jam packed holidays in Switzerland involving loads of activities, but this Easter we chose to have a more chilled time and just really enjoyed the views, the scenery, the lovely shops for tea, coffee and hot chocolate in the village, local walks and the wonderful facilities at La Soldanelle as well. It's just a great place to have time special time together. Thanks again for taking the time to write.
