There are so many reasons why France is the ultimate holiday destination that it’s hard to know where to start.

Life on Mallorca - from Scotland to our Rural Mountain Retreat

Eco & Luxury: How two simple words have become natural bedfellows in Scotland
Created: 19/10/2016
A few years ago if you used the words ‘eco’ and ‘luxury’ in the same sentance, people would have laughed in your face.  Eco was seen as shorthand for cheap & soulless,  luxury on the other hand, could only mean expensive, exclusive & sycophantic. Scotland is the place to go to see this theory turned on its head.  Glorious lochfront eco luxury pads are springing up everywhere; perfect fo..
Bulgaria’s Mountain Holidays are possibly Europe’s best kept secret
Created: 13/07/2016

What you won’t find is tourist menus in English, Starbucks or your neighbours from home! What you will find is local food in locals’ restaurants, a real espresso for a euro and warm welcoming people who genuinely want to share this special region with you.  ..
