The figure in France is also fairly high: approximately 10% of all the housing stock is a holiday or second home, but the majority of these are owned by French. There are approximately 300,000 homes, or 1% of the total housing stock which are the property of owners from abroad. Of this percentage 28% are owned by British owners, 14% Italian, 10% Belgian, 8% Dutch, 3% Spanish and 3% American.
Take a breathtaking mountain drive through the Sierra Almijara and Tejeda ranges or wander around some of Andalusia's famous 'white villages' such as Frigiliana - a restored Roman town with narrow vehicle-free cobbled streets and Maro - the picturesque village with panoramic views across the sea and a secluded beach. The historic city of Granada with its famous Alhambra Palace (booking essential), Malaga, Puerto Banus, Mijas, Antequera and the El Torcal National Park are all excellent options for those looking for day trips.

We stayed at the villa for two weeks in August. We went as two families who are still really good friends!!! We pulled up outside and decided we must have the wrong place as it was a castle! It is very clean and very well equipped. It is obviously a well loved, lived in family holiday home.The beds were very comfy and the air con a must in August. The pool was an amazing 32 degrees and it was lovely to swim in the evening with the lights on. A car is a must. We fished from a boat (and shopped at the markets!) for our supper. Seafood, and fresh fruit and veg are a foodies dream. We all love to shop and cook and spend time together so was our ideal holiday. Loads of games and books so you won't need to take any. We had such an amazing time we have booked to go back next year already. Thankyou Noel and Sue we are counting down the days! … see more
Eating out is a real pleasure in Majorca but be warned – you may not feel like cooking at the villa once you have sampled what is on offer in the restaurants. The seafood is sublime! Sea bass baked in rock salt is an island classic, and the catch of the day might include squid, lobster and sardines. But you don’t have to rely on what comes out of the sea – there are plenty of meat options, from fillet steak to lamb shank. Try the smaller family-run [more] places that will give you a huge welcome and are happy to advise you on your choice of tapas and other traditional Spanish food such as slow roasted lamb, rabbit with crayfish or sobrassada, a meaty spicy sausage. For your pud try the ensaimada, a very sweet, spiral-shaped pastry dessert. To finish your meal, you could try Hierbas - also known as Herbes - a local liqueur produced using fennel and other herbs and spices. Hierbas tastes of aniseed, similar to Pernod or Ouzo. Then there are the cafes where you can enjoy the great Majorcan desserts and cakes. Calories consumed on holiday don’t count! [less]

It has been a few years since I last been to Holiday Villa. It was a pleasant surprise to see that they have changed their menu. We decided to give their new menu a try and ordered leek/chive pockets, beef noodle soup, noodles with black bean sauce, scallion pancake and corn chicken dumplings and they were amazing! The dishes were definitely better than I have expected. My family & I greatly enjoyed their handmade noodles. We will definitely be coming back here!

Second homes are immensely popular, particularly during Canada's summer season. They are referred to differently in different parts of the country; in Ontario it is usually 'cottage', while 'cabin' or 'the lake' is used in much of the rest of Canada. In Ontario, the most popular destination is the Muskoka region of Ontario, known for its many lakes and forests. Muskoka is even referred to as "cottage country" and sees over 2.1 million visitors annually. On the East Coast, the Maritimes are home to many oceanfront cottages. Likewise, British Columbia on the West Coast is another popular vacation destination for seekers of vacation properties. In the Canadian Prairies and British Columbia Interior, vacation properties are located near or on freshwater lakes. Chalets at ski resorts are also common during winter.
La location de maison pour les vacances possède également quelques aspects pratiques : pas forcément éloignée du centre-ville, vous pourrez jouir de plus d'espace et profiter du calme et de l'intimité propre aux locations de vacances. Plus besoin également de passer une heure à chercher une place de parking et on ne risque pas de déranger les voisins lorsque l'on se trouve sur un grand terrain.
Our comfortable, well appointed, self-catering holiday apartments are an ideal base from which to explore the unspoilt beauty of the Scottish West Coast. From the grandeur of the mountains with their deep mysterious Lochs, ancient castles, abbeys or prehistoric stone circles, there is a wealth of scenery and history in this beautiful corner of Scotland. Arguably, no other area of Scotland offers so much: from the ancient capital of the Scots in the 6th century at Dunadd in the Kilmartin Glen, to Easdale Island and its fantastic history.
Our experience both with you and at 32 Marble Arch budget Flats has been fantastic. Regarding your customer service I can only say that in our interaction you have been extremely responsive, friendly and helpful; I can only thank you so much. Personnel from reception was very kind and also very helpful, attending our requests. The place itself I consider to be excellent value for money. The room was spacious, well equipped and -except on weekends- with daily cleaning service. The location is simply superb.
