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.

I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Challis. Sorry it was a bit windy when you were there. You are right - occasionally you do get a breeze, though sometimes this can be a pleasant relief. We have just been there for 2 weeks ourselves and we could have done with the odd breeze! Thanks very much for your great review.

Dear Richard , I thank you for the good review, despite the mishap in check in , i will confess it had never happened, I'm always waiting for the tourists (and rightly) , but unfortunately that day I had a problem with another customer (I manage several apartments in Sicily) he came with about 6 hours late , so I had to send my parents who have done as quickly as possible. I'm so sorry, and I apologize.I'll wait for you again in Taormina, proposing a reduction of 20% and prove that the problem with the check-in was the first and last.
I found the house very clean and I thank you for that.
My parents told me that you have a beautiful family!
I hope see you soon in Taormina
All the best
