How To Book

Browse — Inquire — Hold — Book — (Travel!)

Our booking process is simple, and can be summed up in just four simple steps.


Browse – Find Your Property

Browse our growing collection of personally selected vacation homes, villas, castles, cottages and flats. Feel free to call, email or inquire with any questions about your selections. We’ve visited every property on our site and are enthusiastic about all of them. Our intimate knowledge of each, and of the areas where they are located, will help you select the perfect property for your vacation.

Inquire – Request Availability

Found your perfect spot? Narrowed down your dates? Check availability by sending an inquiry to see if your selection is available. The form is fast, easy, and won’t take a minute. Click here or use the link in the upper right of every page to submit an inquiry. We will reply within 24-hours, and often more quickly than that.

Need some suggestions? Can’t decide on an exact area? Not sure if you want a Castle or a Manor Home, a Flat or a Mews House? That’s what we’re here for. Give a call or submit an inquiry.

Hold – Confirm & Hold Your Property

When we’ve confirmed your property is available and you let us know that you are ready to book it, we will place a 3-day hold on it and send you a Booking Confirmation email with all the details and our Rental Agreement, followed by an invoice with payment options (we accept payment in $ Dollars, £ Pounds, Euros, by check, credit card, bank transfer or Paypal).

Book – Return Booking Forms & Payment

Once you’ve signed and returned your Rental Agreement with the deposit due (50% due at booking, full balance due within 60 days of your trip), your booking is confirmed! We will send you a receipt for your payment with a reminder about any future balance due (if applicable). When your booking has been paid in full, we will send you the arrival instructions with directions to the property, the contact names and phone numbers of the caretaker or owner who will greet you at the property.


Easy peasy lemon squeezey as the saying goes – and off you go to enjoy all the greatness of a holiday in your chosen area(s)!
