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.
Charming and quiet, very well equipped apartment, 3 minutes walk to the Burriana beach, 5 minutes walk to the town center streets and 10 minutes walk to Balcón the Europa. Located in a gated community with beautiful communal gardens and a large communal swimming …see more
“Perfect location and excellent facilities in this quaint old town property” We stayed here easter week and the Easter buzz in the old town with numerous processions was so atmospheric. The house up a delightful lane way in the old town was excellent.

Thank you so much for leaving this nice review - we have to limit the airconditioning as many people leave them running 24 hours a day when they are not even in the property and spending the day at the beach. As long as you are in the property it is only a matter of pressing the button to restart the air conditioning. Of course all hotels us a key card system and door sensors so if a client is not in the property or if a door is opened the aircon is switched off. Unfortunately we have to put in timers as i would not be able to offer such a good rental rate as the electricity bills can be as high as €250 Euros per week when the airconditioning is abused and of course pushing the units 24 hours a day is also going to damage the units.
I do appreciated your feedback and hope to see you again :-)
