Looking for something outrageously different for your next holiday? Then take a look at these holiday castles, windmills, yurts and manor houses that are all available for you to book and make your holiday an extraordinary one.
And there’s plenty to choose from: you could set your loved one's heart racing with a fairy-tale break to a French chateau or rent a houseboat in Amsterdam with your pals. Or how about escaping to a cosy log cabin in the mountains, or going glamping on a yurt holiday in Devon or Cornwall.
If stunning and unusual architecture is for you, rent a regal castle in the Scottish Highlands, a quirky lighthouse by the sea or return to a bygone age on a windmill holiday in Greece.
The self catering Chateau and its delightful Gatehouse (2 adjoining properties) provide a truly relaxing environment to enjoy a Wedding, holiday or other special occasion with family and friends. The Chateau was built in 1820 and is set in 10 acres of beautiful parkland …see more

Dear Phil and Lorraine,
thank you very much for your review.
I am sorry to read that you have been troubled by mosquitos. All our apartments are provided with mosquitos nets at the windows and besides there is a spray mosquitos repellant in the bathrooms: indeed there was one also in your apartment on the shelf near the bathroom door, but alas I forgot to tell you; I apologise for that.
I will be happy to welcome you again at Villa Di Lupo Parra and next time I will put the repellant in a more visible place, I promise.
