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.

Excellent location but villa is poorly maintained and the description on the website is misleading to say the least. The pool was nice but there were no umbrellas & no life ring which is not good when… More
I appreciate that you have provided your comments with regards to the Villa and the grounds. I am saddened that you did not bring these points to our attention as we could have supplied addtional umbrellas around the pool. There are permanent shaded areas which clients usually use if they wish to not be in direct sun. The life ring is located on the wall beside the BBQ next to the pool, this is quite visable and again could have been pointed out if asked.
We have noted the issues that you have raised and although they had not been raised throughout your stay we will ensure that all aspects are to the standard expected.
