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.

Thank you for your review and I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Villa da Naranja. I have investigated the point raised re the barking based on your and the other guest in August. It appears that a new dog has arrived into the neighborhood and on investigation it seems to bark when the gates of Naranja are opened (we observed no barking at night or when guests were around the pool, alfresco dining etc). However, the police have been visited on the matter and they have been to see the neighbor. This seems to have met with success since then, as there have been no more instances of barking (other then when the dog is excited to go out itself once a day on its walk). I hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Naranja in the future.
