  • Perfect Location in Rome!

    "My family of 4 stayed at Dorotea's comfortable courtyard apartment over the New Year's holiday. She was very gracious and answered all my questions before our trip and made transportation arrangements for our late arrival to the city. She also helped us with NY Eve reservations to a wonderful restaurant. Georgio met us at the apartment and made sure we were comfortable with the apartment and our surroundings. He made sure we had transportation back to the airport for a very early flight and everything went very smoothly. The apartment is spacious, the wifi worked great and even though the apartment is on a little street with a lot of foot traffic, it faces into a beautiful courtyard that was very quiet and serene. The apartment is conveniently located to every major sight and we walked everywhere. We only took a taxi once during our stay and there is a grocery and plenty of shopping/restaurants steps from the apartment."

  • Beautiful traditional farmhouse

    "The farmhouse has everything you require for a great holiday: lovely bedrooms with excellent and modern bathrooms and lots of room, a farmhouse kitchen with all the equipment you would need, several public rooms which cater for all numbers and moods, excellent outdoor facilities and pool and not least an attentive and helpful host who was there when you needed him but left you to enjoy the holiday. We particularly liked the inner courtyard for meals and relaxing in the evening and when we wished some shade. The barbecue was well used. It was also a great place for the children to play as it was private and fully enclosed. The outer garden was a lovely sunny area and the pool was clean with sparkling water and lighting for an evening swim.The main lounge was great when we were all together but the games room and the library were always there for quiet moments. Robion has a range of eating places to suit all tastes and a good range of shops. It is also well placed for visiting all the popular tourist and beauty spots in Provence. Last but not least, the owner was always ready to provide information and help particularly when we organised a celebration meal in the farmhouse when we had the food provided by a local restaurant. All in all everyone from the youngest to the oldest had a wonderful time and we would certainly recommend St Roch Farmhouse for a great family holiday."

Scotland Travel Tips

Be Enchanted by Scotland's Beauty

Scotland's dramatic and seemingly ever-changing landscapes never fails to enchant visitors. The age-old cities embody the rich Scottish culture. The gentle rolling hills give rise to dramatic mountain peaks in the highlands. The rugged coastline is often shrouded in mist, making it simply magical. The nine different regions have many diverse attractions but some things they have in common are warm Scottish hospitality and stunning landscapes. Many people travel to Scotland cottages to experience the culture and beautiful landscapes. What they often discover is that there is so much to see and do, they end up wishing they could extend their stay a little longer.

Getting to and Around Scotland

Traveling from the U.S., you will arrive at the international airports in either Glasgow or Edinburgh. Most often, you will usually have to route via one of the major European hubs such as London, Amsterdam or Paris. Once in the cities, it's easy enough to get around. The rail and road network is extensive and the public transport system pretty reliable. One of the best and most affordable ways to tour Scotland is using a rail or bus pass. Many Scotland vacation rentals are located in the historic city of Edinburgh which means that public transport can take you to see the vast majority of sites. If you've selected a more remote vacation home along the coast or in the highlands, you may need to hire a car and drive a portion of the way. Remember that in Scotland they drive on the left side of the road and that most rental vehicles are manual transmissions. If you want an automatic car, you usually have to pay a premium.

Scotland Travel is a Photographer's Dream

Characteristic of Scotland, especially in the summertime, are the vibrant colors reflected in the landscapes. Clear blue lakes are tucked between rolling hills dotted with wildflowers, and occasionally a majestic castle juts out against the horizon. The seasonal moods can be reflected in the contrasting light. On some of the backroads, as you capture the moment, you may get the sense that you have traveled back in time. As you tour historic and cultural sites, you'll find the people as fascinating as the rest of the country. There's always an interesting tale to tell and some fine whiskey to warm the bones. The annual Edinburgh Military Tattoo is one of many events on the Scottish cultural calendar. The brightly colored kilts and marching bands are an incredible sight and the event is well worth attending.

Tourist Attractions in Scotland

When visiting Scotland, it's best to decide which area or interest you are going to focus on. The tourism authority is well organized and there are several themed routes that you can follow. Choose from beautiful castles and lochs, Scotland's historical sites, a world-famous whiskey route, magical isles and peninsulas, poets and pilgrims, golf circuits, national parks and a range of outdoor recreational activities.

For the active traveler, Scotland has some of the best mountain biking routes. Long and winding, they climb through valleys and forests with sections of thrilling single track and amazing country views. For a number of years, the mountain biking world cup has been held in Scotland, reflecting the quality of the trails. Water sports enthusiasts can enjoy some whitewater fun on the rivers or a more relaxing canoe excursion on the many lochs. There are hundreds of hiking routes that can be enjoyed in the summer. In winter, the snow-covered peaks provide excellent skiing and snowboarding trails.
