Spend your days exploring deep, green countryside and skim stones across lazy streams. Follow the scent of salty air and head to the coast, spending long days on the beach flitting between soft sands and cool sea. Perch on a bench and watch as life goes by, before heading to a local restaurant to dine on fresh, local produce lovingly crafted and prepared by skilled hands. Then, when you've had your fill of exploring, turn your attention to relaxing. Throw yourself into the holiday spirit and land in your own private self-catering cottage, primed and ready for you. An early summer break in your own slice of paradise can give you the chance to unwind, catch up and settle into a slower, more considered rhythm.
