Mountain Holidays

Far from the noisy crowds of tourist hotspots, and the hustle and bustle of city life, a mountain holiday provides an unrivalled opportunity for both serenity and, if you choose, adrenaline-fuelled activity. Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, an adventure weekend or a family holiday, your perfect chalet, cabin or cottage is hiding somewhere in amongst the idyllic mountains and sparkling lakes, just waiting to be discovered. Holidays in the mountains offer many ways to keep you happily occupied for the whole of your break, no matter what your activity level. Outdoor adventures come in endless variety: mountain climbing, paragliding, hang gliding, horseback riding, hill walking, white water rafting, mountain biking - even just plain old picnicking! - are all perfectly suited to the sun-kissed slopes of mountain resorts around the world. To search for mountain holiday homes specifically, just filter your property search by selecting "Mountains" from our "Themes" option.

They're home to much magnificent wildlife found nowhere else in the world, and brimming with outdoor activity locations. In your downtime, refuel with some local rooibos tea – caffeine free and naturally imbued with a slightly sweet, vanilla-tinged flavour, it grows nowhere else in the world.
