Villas and Cottages

Villas and Cottages

New from Headwater, a selection of seven-night self-catering villas and cottages – ideal for multi-generational families and groups of mixed abilities who have the complete flexibility to do as much or as little as they wish on holiday.

You’ll have access to a range of itineraries, for walking and/or cycling, giving you a choice of activities for you and your family or friends. You’re free to choose how much or how little you do each day.

Each individual – and unique – property is looked after by the owner or managed by our local agent, and is decorated to the owner’s taste.

Hand-picked properties

Each property provides the perfect mix of privacy and shared space, just like a family home. After a day’s activities you can return to your villa or cottage and come together to share your experiences of the day’s adventures, and relax.

When it comes to meal-times, each property has a fully-equipped kitchen so you can easily cater for yourselves. And if you fancy heading out for dinner, all the properties are situated close to local restaurants too!

Our 'family' programme

We’ve developed a ‘family programme’ in each area – made up of shorter, interesting walks and/or cycles that are suitable for little ones or less active members of your family or group, alongside a selection of walking or cycling routes that you’d find on our traditional Headwater holidays.

However, the beauty of a villa or cottage holiday by Headwater is the complete flexibility that this type of accommodation provides - relax and enjoy some down-time in your villa or cottage, maybe take a swim in the pool, read a book in the sunshine or sit and admire the view.

Headwater expertise

The local Headwater Representative(s) will brief you shortly after your arrival and help you plan your week, using their invaluable knowledge of the local area and of the various routes and activities. They're just a phone call away if you need them, but won't interfere if you prefer your own space.

Why not enjoy the picturesque coves and beaches of Catalunya, the farmers markets of the Dordogne and explore the coastal paths of Brittany to name but a few.
