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.
As soon as you walk through the front door you are struck by the sheer tranquillity and elegance of your surroundings. Mot Mot Lodge is beautifully appointed with everything you could wish for to make your stay a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. A short walk throug …see more
