Country Trips

A cup of tea, a good book, a picture-book cottage window rimmed with flowers, and the promise of a nice long walk—what’s not to like about country vacations?

Sometimes, even the most adventurous travelers need a rest, and nothing fits the bill like country holiday breaks. Living + Nomads’s editors and contributors have searched the world for the best rural retreats so vacationers can have the relaxing countryside refuge of their dreams.
