Listed below are a selection of what we consider to be Unusual Holiday Homes ie. Holiday Homes that offer you something a little bit different. They are located throughout all the regions that we cover including the UK, Ireland and other countries within Europe.

Sometimes it is good to experience something a bit different, an unusual holiday home, an unusual activity, an experience that will fire your imagination, something that will make you say "I'm glad I did that - it makes me look at the world or myself in a new light".

From all the holiday homes that we have on our database, we have selected the ones that we think are a little bit unusual. Whether that be the style and look of the holiday home itself, its location or what the holiday home owner is offering you, we think that you will experience something that is just a little bit out of the ordinary.

There is no bias in the properties we have selected, they are from any country within Europe, some are large, some are small and some are more different than others - all we are saying is that they are not run of the mill.
