Welcome. We at are a small group of people who enjoy visiting small villages with a bit of character. Villages that are small enough that if you don't know what you are doing it doesn't matter. Because everyone else does.

While there we prefer to look after ourselves, eat when we like, come and go as we please, etc. This eliminates B&Bs and, to some extent, Hotels. So we always stay in self-catering accommodation.

To this end we have put together a web site () which you have obviously found. Hopefully you were looking for a little village for that peaceful weekend away from the pace of the city, the job stress, the career competition - basically the Rat Race! If so, you have come to the right place. We have been and will continue to build lists of villages and cottages that cater to people with our preferences.
