New for 2017: Villas & Cottages by Headwater

Relaxed and active villa and cottage holidays in France and Spain…

With more than 30 successful years’ experience organising walking and cycling holidays, where you really experience a destination on foot or by bike, we like to think that we know our stuff. One way to ensure we’re meeting our customer needs is by listening to feedback and suggestions – from past, present and future customers. They are your holidays, after all. So, with the help of your feedback we are moving into 2017 with a brand new holiday experience…

Villas and Cottages by Headwater is a one-stop self-catering activity break, ideal for families and groups (but suitable for anyone looking for something a bit different). Because our traditional touring from hotel-to-hotel holidays aren’t practical for some families or groups of mixed abilities, staying in self-catering accommodation gives you the freedom and flexibility to do entirely as you wish throughout your stay, creating your own unique holiday, and  experiencing your moments that matter.

For the past year our local experts have been researching and travelling to regions in France and Spain to hand-pick the finest villas and cottages that offer the perfect combination of luxury, location and relaxation.

The result? A diverse range of properties suitable for multi-generational families and groups of friends of mixed ability levels. Whether you prefer a luxury house with a private pool in Spain, a quaint converted stone barn in the Dordogne or a characterful apartment for two with river view in Brittany, there’s something for everyone.

Villas and Cottages by Headwater mean that you can enjoy the best of both worlds, an active break with family and friends, no matter what the mix. On arrival, we give you all the advice, equipment, route directions and suggested activities to fill your days – and the choice is yours how you spend your time. 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. For a less energetic holiday or day off from exercise, we’ll recommend plenty of ideas for exploring the local area or even further afield. And we always recommend some down time relaxing at your villas (it is a holiday after all!).

At the end of each day you can return to your villa and come together to enjoy the day’s adventures and relax. To make your holiday even more special we’ve also put together a number of extra touches to enhance your stay, so if you’d like an evening meal cooked for you, your shopping done before you get there, a local walking guide for a day or two, or even a chef for the week, then we can arrange that for you (subject to availability and extra charges).
