If you're looking for an active break and aren’t afraid of getting wet, book one of these holiday homes near fantastic water sports destinations worldwide.
Water sports holidays by the sea allow you to spend energetic mornings on the water and lazy afternoons chilling on the beach. Inland destinations near lakes and rivers are less tied to the summer season and can offer great windsurfing, canoeing and sailing throughout the year.
If you’re planning an action-packed holiday, choose a villa or cottage with plenty of home comforts. You’ll really appreciate a bubbling Jacuzzi, steamy sauna or cosy log fire after an active day on the water.

We are very pleased with this review. However, there is a very important factual error in the first line which should be corrected as it will confuse future guests as to our location. She states "It is is in Kas just outside Kalkan..." Kas is the next town 40 minutes away. It should read "It is in Kisla a suburb just outside Kalkan ...". To maintain your reputation we trust you will contact our guest to approve the change. Many thanks. Sue Hawkridge.
