Outstanding location

Baldregat | Mallorca, Balearics | Sleeps 4

The Tramuntana Mountains are one of Mallorca’s most emblematic sights and it is here, nestled in the wooded hillside of the Ca'n Bosc Valley, that one finds Baldregat in what is, without doubt, a unique location offering privacy, tranquillity, panoramic sea views, against a backdrop of soaring mountainside where birds of prey such as eagles and hawks regularly circle and swoop around the rockface.

All This...Just for Two

Bolara | Istria, Croatia | Sleeps 2

Bolara is also one of the most incredibly spacious properties for two that we have come across. Originally conceived as a two bedroom property the owner decided that he liked the space so much that he would leave it as a one bedroom house and maybe, one day, add another bedroom. Or maybe not. He’ll see how he feels!

Spectacular Setting

Soulages | South West France, France | Sleeps 8

Stunning views surround Soulages and in fact, one group of guests described Soulages as a 'little slice of paradise'. They had planned to do a lot of sightseeing whilst on holiday but were so ‘seduced by the sheer beauty and tranquillity of’ the house and its setting that they simply stayed by the pool relaxing, returning home refreshed and re-invigorated. We feel that they have so aptly summed up Soulages, there is little more we can say except why not experience it for yourselves?

As we reached the top of the sweeping driveway that winds its way up a wooded hillside, the grand and imposing façade of El Torero with its fine stone tower and unquestionable sense of grandeur left us in no doubt that this was an important Andaluz residence.
