Small-scale holidays at unique locations

Where everyone goes right, I go left

A holiday stay with a friendly owner and away from the masses. Where you can enjoy your break in peace and quiet. That is what I stand for.  

I prefer to steer clear from mass tourism, which is why I'm always on the lookout for unspoilt locations to unwind. During a small-scale European holiday, you really immerse yourself into the local culture, discovering new habits and customs. You get to enjoy the silence and make genuine connections with the people around you. 

I have chosen to enjoy my holidays away from the crowds. With your rental car, which is always included in a holiday package with flights, you can explore your surroundings at your own pace. I love cruising around Tuscany's spectacular landscape or discovering tiny abandoned beaches on Cyprus. During a small-scale holiday with a rental car, an authentic experience is guaranteed! 

If you pick a self-drive holiday, my small-scale hotels, apartments and villas are perfect too! And because I know that I'm not the only one who prefers plenty of space and calm during the holidays, I am excited to share my discoveries with you.

That is what makes a small-scale holiday so special.

Frequently asked questions about small-scale holidays

What you need to know

What is a small-scale holiday? 

During a small-scale holiday, you stay at a location where the owner welcomes you personally. There are usually no more than 20 rooms at any location – and often far less! – so you become acquainted fast. Each of my spots has its own charm, from authentic to modern, and each has its own special features, so you will have a holiday experience like no other! My owners' personal service and wonderful hospitality play a big part in this. Check my Pearls for locations you won't find anywhere else! 

Where do you find your small-scale hotels and apartments? 

At any destination I offer, I go and look for unique, authentic holiday accommodations. At each of my holiday locations, you will find the peace and quiet you are after during your small-scale holiday. 

Is a small-scale holiday spot suitable for children? 

Most of my accommodations are suitable for kids, but please note that they usually don't offer extra activities or facilities for children. If you are travelling with your family, I recommend staying in an apartment or villa, so you have plenty of space at your disposal. Do you want to make sure?

How can I travel to your small-scale locations? 

I offer both packages with flights and rental car, and self-drive holidays. So you choose what suits you best!
