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.
“Heaven on earth” This is heaven on earth to me. The location, view and cottage were all PERFECT. Clean cottage in the perfect location. It had everything you could possibly need there. Very comfortable for 3 adults. Full kitchen, easy to cook. Peacefu

Hi. Thanks so much for your review. We love to get the feedback as we love Chateau d'oex so much and its great to hear that other people have had a good time too. It's also really kind of you to take the time to share the specific things you enjoyed to help other people with their stay. We provide lots of information but other people's experiences are so helpful as well. Often we have jam packed holidays in Switzerland involving loads of activities, but this Easter we chose to have a more chilled time and just really enjoyed the views, the scenery, the lovely shops for tea, coffee and hot chocolate in the village, local walks and the wonderful facilities at La Soldanelle as well. It's just a great place to have time special time together. Thanks again for taking the time to write.

Hi. Many thanks for your review. We are delighted that you had a great stay. Thanks also for your feedback about the sign. We noticed on our last visit that the sign for "La Soldanelle" has been removed at the bottom of the hill. It has been replaced with a sign for "EMS La Pommerie"!! (I am not yet sure what or where that it is, but it is the sign to follow for La Soldanelle!). We have now updated all our directions so as to avoid any future confusion and provided a map of the village also in the information we send out. Thanks again for taking the time to share your experience. We hope you will come back another time soon.
