Rent a cozy cottage house

The cottage style has its origins in the 19th century, in England. The cottage was actually a very small farm with possibly an outbuilding. The word cottage is derived from cotter, the term that refers to the concerned farm worker. Today, the word cottage conjures up romantic images of cozy, old thatched cottages with exposed wooden beams in the ceiling or in a rural setting, such a traditional English cottage with garden. Cottages have evolved over the centuries from working-class cottages into popular holiday retreats. Because the size differs per cottage, the amount of people you can stay in a cottage with also varies. There is, therefore, suitable accommodation for every travel group. In a cottage, you will generally find all the luxury and comfort you need and the landlords often offer various extra facilities, such as bicycle rental, hot tubs, WiFi, or a sauna.

If you want something other than a holiday in a hotel, then a holiday house in the middle of nature is the right choice. Be it in the forest, in the mountains, by the lake or by the sea, with a pool or your own sauna - here you can enjoy the freedom and beauty of nature in the fresh air, far away from mass tourism. Moreover, a holiday home is often cheaper than a hotel and you can then use the money for your leisure time. You can do activities whenever you feel like it, you can be spontaneous and don't have to plan everything in advance. Have you checked our tiny cottages, excellent for a romantic getaway? Check here and book your desired accommodation.

Especially when you are travelling with children, a house in the great outdoors is an advantage. The children can run around freely in the garden, regardless of anyone and whenever they feel like it. You can organize your free time as you want without sticking to fixed times. You can cook whatever and whenever you want from your cottage kitchen or enjoy a typical dish in a nearby restaurant. If you bring the children to bed in the evening, you can spend the rest of it comfortably outside on the terrace or in the garden. Your dog is also allowed in some of our unique cottages and does not have to go to a kennel or the neighbour. Enjoy the time together on endless hikes and walks, on the beach or in the forest. All these advantages will make you choose a cottage in nature. Are you counting the days till your holiday starts yet?
