Home away from home
By the sea, in the mountains or a million miles from anywhere, there is simply nothing like making yourself at home on holiday. For us, a private house is the perfect setting for a special occasion, an intimate celebration or a well overdue reunion with loved ones. For friends or family, this selection of remote boltholes, unique hideaways and exclusive villas are the pick of the bunch when it comes to finding privacy, peace and quiet and pools with a view.
