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 would just like to respond to this review.
Firstly the email conversation regarding the mess that was left was started on 22nd May so pretty much straight after your departure.
The cleaners arrived to find the house doors wide open, front and back.
The house was found to be in a real mess with food remains, cigarette buts, bottles and clothing left strewn across the house. The sandwich maker in the house had to be disgarded as it was in a real mess, leather suite was covered in food/drink marks, glass tables were badly scratched, marks all over the walls and 2 sun loungers went missing.
In all the time we have been renting the house out we have NEVER kept a deposit, but the damage to the house, replacement items (such as sandwich maker and sunloungers) plus the cleaning left us with a €380 bill to pay. Keeping the €300 deposit has still left us €80 short in the end but we decided just to draw a line under this.
As you will see from all of our other reviews and comments we provide a high standard house and personal service which every one of our guests have enjoyed. We have had nothing but positive feedback in the past and where people break items they own up or replace them before departing.
