Be it island-hopping in Croatia or white water rafting in the Caribbean, holidays are a hot topic right now. And in our haste to avoid school holiday price hikes we've been on the hunt for quirky places to stay which are slightly under the radar. From Swedish treehouses to coastal lighthouses, discover our favourite holiday accommodation finds.
Rent a Treehouse in Sweden
“If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of a big surprise…” These are the words which spring to mind when you spot the impressive Tree Hotel nestled amongst the peaceful forest! This Swedish paradise is a wonderful hideout which is decked out in true Scandinavian style. The interior is minimal but has everything you require for a comfy stay away from it all.
And if you don’t fancy the mirror cube retreat you can also choose from a gigantic birds nest, a UFO or a red brick cabin to dwell in. The Tree Hotel is located just outside Luleå in Sweden and prices start from £89 per night.
Rent a Lighthouse in Pembrokeshire
If you’re looking for a holiday a little closer to home the lighthouse tower in St Ann’s Head is a rare find. Situated on the edge of a cliff top with breath taking views of the coast, this 5 bedroom property is ideal for large groups looking for an outdoorsy holiday by the sea.
Go sea kayaking in Dale, walk the Pembrokeshire coast, enjoy the sublime views from the top of the Blue Lagoon and make hey while the sun shines in this amazing corner of West Wales.
Stay on a Houseboat under the Eiffel Tower
Most people travel to Paris for the macaroons, the boutiques and of course the Eiffel Tower, but imagine staying directly under the famous historical landmark on the river Seine! Well, now you can. Boasting 360 degree views of the famous tower, the charming houseboat can accommodate 2 people. The décor is shabby chic with nautical themed quirks and colourful plants adding character to the setting.
Excellently located in the centre of Paris, this houseboat can be your holiday home for just £45 per person, per night.
