Mare Verde apartment TenerifeIf you own a property and would like us to feature it, please email us some basic details about your property, location, number of bedrooms, type of accommodation (villa, apartment, hotel, cottage etc) with your contact details and website address if you have one.  We can then bear your property in mind when looking for accommodation in your area.

We offer cottages, apartments and villas, some of which can be booked through us and others directly with the owners.  We provide a friendly and efficient service and the accommodation on offer is good value for money.  Some of our accommodation is situated on the coast and some in more rural areas, further inland.  We feel confident therefore that we have something for everyone.

We have featured below a few of the areas covered by this website:



Cornwall is located in the farthest south west tip of England and features a nature environment and a mild climate. It is a very popular holiday destination.  It is surrounded on the North by the Atlantic ocean and to the south by the English Channel and to the east by the river Tamar.  For this reason it supports a wide range of inland and marine wildlife.  Many of the beaches are excellent for surfing, the most well known of which are Fistral, Perranporth, Portmeor, Sennen, Whitsands Bay, Porthleven.



The above apartment is situated in the exclusive Torviscas/Fanabe area on the south west coast of Tenerife, near to Playa de las Americas.  The apartment is within 5 minutes walk of Torviscas and Fanabe beaches.  This large two bedroom apartment has 2 balconies which overlook a quiet area of the Mare Verde complex, but at the same time the apartment is near to the pools.  It has a kitchen with oven, fridge/freezer, and all the usual utensils such as kettle etc.  The lounge and dining room area includes 2 large single sofa beds, which means the apartment sleeps up to 6 people.  Linen and towels are provided, as well as a large welcome pack including wine and beers.



We have cottages in Devon in towns ranging from Torquay, Dartmouth, Beaworthy and Branscombe in East Devon.


Seville, Spain
Seville lies on the banks of the Guadalquivir and is one of the largest historical centres in Europe.  It's treasures include the cathedral (one of the largest in Christendom), the Alcazar Palace, Casa de Pilatos, Archive of the Indies (where the historical records of the American continent are kept), the Fine Arts Museum (the second picture gallery in Spain), plus convents, parish churches and palaces. 

The Sevillians are great actors and put on an extraordinary performance at their annual Feria de Abril, a week-long party of drink, food and dance which takes place day and night in more than a thousand especially mounted tents.  But above all it allows the men to parade on their fine horses and the women to dance in brilliantly coloured gypsy dresses.  Immediately before that is Holy Week, Semana Santa, a religious festival where hooded penitents march in long processions followed by huge baroque floats on which sit images of the Virgin or Christ, surrounded by cheerful crowds.


Argeles sur Mer, Languedoc-Roussillon

Argeles-sur-Mer is situated in the southernmost part of France, at the foot of the Pyrenees in the Languedoc-Roussillon region.  The resort is awarded annually with the Blue Flag for clean, attended beaches.  There are sporting and relaxing activities including childrens' clubs, sailing schools, windsurfing, bobskiing, deep-sea diving, boat hiring, sea-trips, sea-kayak, waterskiing and pedalos.  Along the waterfront, discover the 2km promenade which is flowered with numerous Mediterranean plants such as mimosas, olive-trees and laurels.

Argeles is a typically old Catalan village with a quite particular mediterranean charm: narrow streets decorated with flowers and lined with pebble fronted  houses.  The village is lively and welcoming all through the year, thanks to its numerous shops, its traditional market, its craft market and its social life.


Torquay is at the heart of the English Riviera, the largest and most buoyant town of Torbay.  It is an ideal venue for family vacations, quiet breaks and as a base for exploring the area.  This continental style town is full of elegant Victorian terraces and  Italian style white villas perched on the surrounding hillsides.  There is a palm-lined promenade, seafront gardens and a lively harbour with its splendid yachts which are moored there.  Yet within minutes of the town centre there are beautiful beaches easily accessible by foot, road or water.  There are superb views from the cliff-tops coastal paths.
