The phrase ‘home from home’ is used a lot to describe holiday accommodation, but I have never stayed anywhere where it is as appropriate as at Auchteralyth Steadings. There was literally nothing missing; from tin foil to TV, everything was provided and all of it high quality, not just the cheapest you can get away with like some places have.

A perfect bolthole for stressed owners and their dogs. Anne has thought of everything to make this a home from home in lovely rural Perthshire.

Escaladieu was perfect for our stay. The property is in a beautiful setting, quiet, well equipped and with a fantastic pool. It is within easy reach of many very good restaurants. The coast , Gorge du Verdon or the many hill top villages provide picturesque opportunities to travel a little further afield. If not, just relax by the pool and smell the lavender fields in the distance.
