This was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. The location was beautiful and there were many moderate walking expeditions to be made in the area. Travel to Cascais and Sintra was straightforward using the local bus service. (more)Janet Dear

WONDERFUL. Out first three generation family holiday in several years and it couldn't have been better. (more)Melissa Elliott

From £325 - £425 per cottage per week (sleeps 4-5)
Algarve holiday accommodation
Allow yourself time to just hang-out at the quinta. It's so relaxing and there are plenty of places to sit/lie while reading yet another good book. A true possibility to stop life for a bit. (more)Kerstin Lindley-Jones
We spent 10 nights and it was all really great, friendly and helpful hosts and beautiful, clean accommodation. (more)Jayne Ross
100%. Exactly what we as a family of three generations, age range from almost 3 to 71, were looking for. The freedom to wander their land, pick oranges, lemons and apricots. The beautiful swimming pool with a natural rock surround which all three generations used every single day. The meals were superb and the service outstanding. (more)Patricia Brenchley
From €45 - €190 per accommodation per night
Carmarthenshire self catering cottage in Wales
We had a great time - relaxing, some beautiful experiences (beaches, hills, islands and all the above animals). We were in bed every night by 9.30pm - tired but blissfully comfortable after a day spent exploring. (more)Jayne Obeng
Perfect!....The best thing about the holiday was having no internet connection & very little mobile coverage. It made it a total break away & allowed us to appreciate everything about the location of cottage & the amazing surrounding area. It was a complete break away which is what a holiday should be. (more)Kirstin Robertson
From £290 - £470 per cottage per week (sleeps 4)
Mercantour Park self catering gite, France
Excellent. We travelled with young family and would certainly stay again so cannot recommend it too highly. (more)ROSIE KELBRICK
A really worthwhile and memorable holiday: the self guided walks were well planned and gave us a great idea of the locality; the food was very good and the garden(s) excellent for relaxing on our days off. We were given a very warm welcome and a friendly stay. (more)Jon Nay
Amazing 360 degree views on the walks in the Maritime Alps and the relaxed but informative approach of our guide Mel. The gite is very comfortable and well equipped and the food which was prepared by Liz was delicious and varied. (more)Cathy Wiggins
From £420 per week (sleeps 2)
Loire Valley self catering farm cottage, France
Five stars for getting the right amount of things done & rest. The countryside is beautiful, the gite and courtyard were lovely, the hosts wonderful and the chateaux have to be seen at least once in a lifetime. (more)Ilinca Anghelescu
It was the perfect family holiday with a 15 month old. With 3 separate cottages all surrounding one courtyard, it provides the perfect place for a shared family holiday, but still giving you your own space to retreat to! (more)Becky Reid
Despite some inclement weather on a few days, it was one of the best holidays we have ever had. We didn't want to leave. We would love to get back in the near future. (more)Valerie Guihen
From €560 - €700 per cottage per week (sleeps 2-4)

It is the best holiday we’ve had in France and that's from a perspective of over 40 years holidaying in France...The walking in the beautiful mountains in the Mercantour with snow,sun,isolation and good companions.Why did I reach 67 before finding this most beautiful place? (more)Tony Bell

Luxury Greek Island holiday accommodation
A wonderful holiday which far exceeded our expectations. (more)Susan Purnell
The location of the accommodation, our home for the next few weeks was simply stunning. The gardens lovingly tended to by the owners Marilyn and Spero, provide a perfect relaxing haven to unwind. The entrance to our cottage was awash with wisteria and the fragrance of white jasmine filled the air. Spotting a Pine Martin one evening was really exciting for all of us! The place is awash with all kinds of wildlife, green lizards, giant centipedes, and birdlife galore. A very exciting playground for... (more)Alison Brookes Day

Loire Valley self catering accommodation
Memorable parts? Everything! We loved being surrounded by historic French villages; staying in a beautiful rustic (but VERY comfortable) 19th century stone cottage; the warmth and approachability of our hosts Nicole and Alex Crawford; and being spoilt for choice when arranging our daily activities. We went for lovely long walks; visited outdoor markets; ate wonderful, good value food at local restaurants; explored castles, chateaus and other historic sites; people-watched from snug, friendly...
