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.

Simon and Dorothy,
Many thanks for going out of your way to leave a fantastic review, this is really much appreciated and gives other guests confidence in booking.
The area at the back is nicely secluded and we have young children ourselves who enjoy roaming around there. The playhouse, swing, and slide are always a hit with the children but a BBQ for the grown ups is something we have been considering but not managed to implement in a safe manner....perhaps it will be there the next time you visit!?
Very best wishes,
Liz and Glen
