Holiday Homes for the Design-Minded

If, like me, you’re planning your summer trip somewhere and want to find something out of the ordinary, then look no further than these stunning holiday homes renowned for their unique design. At the heart of their architectural concept is functionality and beauty, with space to breathe in the light and fresh air. Set in some of the best scenery, they are quirky and a world away from the archetypal holiday home we’ve come to know. They are also a refreshing change to the usual hotel scenario, giving you your own space and environment. The evolution of the holiday home has certainly arrived.
