Devon self catering cottage in England
Very good. Great for families and for getting away from it all. It was all lovely and relaxing. Borrowing the bikes and cycling around the countryside was great fun! (more)bronwen burgess
The most memorable part of the vacation was relaxing in a peaceful setting with buckets of very fresh air...Very good. (more)Bob Simmonds
Excellent....The peaceful comfortable cottage and surrounding green and fertile countryside, with a good variety of walks and small market towns nearby. Our first vacation with the dog who soon felt very much at home. (more)Bob Simmonds
From 200 - 495 per week (sleeps 4)
Andalucia villa near Malaga, Spain
We really felt that we got to know this area of southern Spain thanks to our hosts. Really great time. We'd love to go back. (more)Laura Greenman
You couldn't ask for a more idyllic location, or more welcoming hosts. Shane met us at the villa when we arrived and gave us a quick run through the basics, while Bea would always let us know when she was around to water the plants (twice during the week), a much appreciated sign of the type of consideration they show towards their guests. (more)David Mervik
The peaceful setting, serene surroundings and the warm and gracious hospitality of our hosts, Shane and Bea, are our fondest memories. From the moment we arrived until the minute we left, two weeks later, we rarely thought of our hectic, fast-paced life back home. (more)Nancy Lipson
From 799 - 1340 per accommodation per week
Devon eco lodge accommodation, England
Maggie, joint owner with Ian, took us on a walk through the wet grassland area of special scientific interest. Not only was it interesting from an ecological point of view it was such fun. (more)Jenny Brace
We'll remember the brightness of the stars on clear nights with no light pollution, watching bats flying around our lodge at sunset, waking late because it was so quiet and comfortable and the blackout blinds were so good, the ruby red cows really glowing like rubies at sunset, being content to just potter around the farm in the sunshine without getting bored. (more)Sue Stanwell
The most memorable part were the ...scones on arrival (they were the best I have ever tasted!), walking around the beautiful country side and the farm... (more)Jenna du Plessis
From 250 - 595 per accommodation per week
Umbria B&B farmstay accommodation
The stunning location of the farmstay - spectacular views, and we were extremely fortunate to have glorious weather for two of our three days. Also good, close proximity to town (short drive), which turned out to be the best dining option with our two young boys. (more)Fiona Dell
Our vacation in Umbria was absolutely fantastic! The accommodation was beautiful and Francesco and Monia (the owners) took great care refurbishing the old farm house, being sensitive to the architecture, nature and the Umbrian tradition. (more)Tamar Feldberg
The house was beautiful and the surrounding garden (fantastic olive groves) and swimming pool. House staff were all very nice and accommodating. (more)Kate Aydin
From 110 per person per night
Gozo self catering with sea views, Malta
You feel more like friend than guest but always treated with professionalism and respect. (more)Maureen Astles
Excellent - I would say the experience that we had was unique in giving us an insight into the local people and customs/history becuase of our host. It has made us want to return to get to know the island more. (more)shona hudson
We loved everything though the hospitality of our host Frank Tabone really made the difference - sea kayaking to quiet beaches and coves, being taught to make bread in a local bakery and eating some amazing Gozitan food with him really set this vacation apart. (more)Sarah Black
From 390 - 900 per week
Scottish Highlands luxury self catering accommodation
SUPERB, didn't want to come home...The house was memorably comfortable and well equipped especially in the kitchen, it was such a pleasure to have sharp knives, mixers, salad spinners and an aga. (more)Carrie Hawksworth
The setting of the cottage itself and views from the hot tub were most memorable. We were in Rose, the smaller cottage, and the views were beautiful...The whole family, including boys of 10 and 5, loved it. Being on a croft with the animals made it extra special. (more)Susanna Dermody
We had a brilliant time and it was everything we had hoped for. The accommodation deserves its 5 stars and is a very relaxing place. We prefer self catering as it provides the flexibility required with the baby, but appreciated the option to have homemade food prepared for us. (more)Paul Bradshaw
From 450 - 2200 per cottage per week (sleeps 2-16)
Self catering farmstay in Tuscany
Just wonderful. Beautiful place to stay. Friendly, local, well informed and English speaking hosts. Most memorable was sitting outside the farmhouse on an evening, looking at the stars, listening to the quiet, and thinking about the beautiful day just spent. (more)Judy Powell
Outstanding. (more)Lou Limoges
The stunning views and setting were most memorable. Great walks right on the doorstep. We appreciated the helpful and welcoming style of the staff. They were always ready with a smile and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. (more)Nimet Rener
From 100 - 320 per apartment per night
