Limassol self catering accommodation in Cyprus
Memorable parts? The tranquil position of our accommodation at Kontoyiannas House in Kalavasos. Set within a pleasant & friendly village in the valley and only minutes drive from one of the loveliest beaches we discovered in Cyprus. Tips? To make the most of the self-catering accommodation including the bbq since the variety of menus in the island's taverns & restaurants is generally very limited. Kontoyiannas House would also be great to rent for a group of families - using all... (more)Nicole Mouton

Porto de Pedras self catering beach house in Brazil
Memorable parts? An unexpected but totally delightful encounter with a sea cow in the shallows off the beach. He nibbled my toes and allowed me to stroke him. Magical! They are very friendly characters, vulnerable to extinction. A project near the house to support sea cow conservation is a must see. Tips? If you're looking for nightlife, don't visit! The only nightlife here is nature. Travel light. Swim, snorkel, relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. A decent phrase book is... (more)Beverley Whatford
