Rural hotel breaks

If your idea of the perfect 'weekend break' is something as far away from city life as you can get, then our Rural Retreats programme could be for you! We have chosen our favourite rural hotels - including former coaching inns, converted olive mills and restored monasteries - perfect for people just wanting a rural hotel break away from busy day-to-day living. All the rural hotels we've selected are unique, but all offer beautiful surroundings, high comfort levels and superb regional cuisine.

Below is our range of rural hotels

Auberge du Centre

Short hotel break in france
 

Tucked away in the elegant little village of Chitenay is the lovely ivy-clad Auberge du Centre, run by Gilles Martinet and his team - the food here is superb! Dinner is served either in the pretty dining room, or on the terrace - Gilles is a keen wine buff, and will happily advise on the best local tipples! With 27 bedrooms, Headwater guests are always accommodated in superior rooms with bath and feature satellite tv (including CNN) and telephone.
The hotel has a pleasant terrace overlooking its gardens and swimming pool, which are a real treat on a summers day, as well as an attractive sitting area inside, complete with wooden beams and comfy chairs.
There is a car park behind the hotel, or on road parking available at the front of the building. There is also a public car park opposite the hotel. All non-secure.
Access to the Spa area is payable locally at 12€ per person per day. Access is free to those staying in a 'Balneo' room.

Locanda Senio

Short hotel break in italy
 

This tiny hotel is set in the beautifully romantic wooded hills of the Alto Mugello. The most northerly corner of Tuscany, it is overlooked by the majestic Appenines, and lies in the centre of a 'magic triangle' with Bologna, Faenza and Florence at the corners.
Your hosts and chefs are Roberta and Ercole Lega. They only use organic ingredients in their tasty cuisine - including herbs straight from the hotel gardens. They vary the menu to reflect the seasons - if you're there are the end of the summer, Ercole will be out in the woods at dawn collecting wild mushrooms for dinner that night!
The hotel has six rooms which are comfortable, quiet and traditionally decorated. There is also a small swimming pool, jacuzzi, sun terrace and sauna.
