  • We guarantee you the best price

    Our cottages are professionally managed by our partners and payments are taken by them, but rest assured, by booking via Snaptrip you'll pay the lowest possible price for your trip.

    We never charge you more than you would pay booking directly on the partner's site and if you become a Snaptrip member you can save even more. If you find a property priced lower anywhere else on the internet (we’d be amazed if you do), simply email us at marketing@snaptrip.com and we'll refund you the difference.

    "A very comfortable, well equipped house. We were very impressed by how quickly the place warmed up when the evening turned a little chilly."

    "Pleasant property in interesting non-touristy area with opportunity to both relax and visit local tourist opportunities."
    Haq ‐ 12 Aug 2018
    "Can't fault anything. Lovely cottage & location. Was expensive this time of the year. No local shops arround though."
    Lorraine ‐ 22 Jun 2018
    "House in general very tidy but needs a good clean, lots of dust and cobwebs. Needs someone to check it before guests arrive for light bulbs out, iron not working and general things.For the price it costs it would not hurt just to leave a couple of tea bags, milk etc."

    "Lovely place. We had everything we wanted and a peaceful holiday!!"
