12 February 2021

Given the year we’ve all been through, we’re not surprised there’s been such huge demand for dreamy summer holidays in 2021!

So, we wanted to help you sidestep the disappointment of that perfect retreat already being snapped up, by showcasing some truly fabulous properties…

…that are currently available for at least one week during the summer, throughout July and August, all the way through to early September (restrictions allowing!).

However, there’s one important note. We don’t expect this availability to last very long, so to avoid disappointment, we recommend diving straight in!
