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.

Thanks for your review Albert. We tried to contact you several times on phone, messages and on email, to discuss this issue, as you requested compensation after staying for 5 nights. This is also the first time a guest has had an issue with the listing, so it came as a surprise.
I spoke with Tripadvisor who said that offering you a release was in line with their policies and a good option, however you did not respond to us, or them, as they too tried to reach you. We would not want guests to feel they have to stay and I tried to offer you a way to find something more suitable for you - I am sorry if you felt this was unpleasant - it was offered with good intentions.
The house has 2 bathrooms, and 3 separate toilets, and this is what is indicated on the site so we remain perplexed as to why the booking was made if having 5 bathrooms were a criteria. We hope that you still managed to have a good holiday.
