Welcoming Estates

discover a pallet of leisure activities on European estates

This website gives an overview of the many interesting things you can do on several European Estates, all members of Friends of the Countryside and/or members of the European Historic Houses Association. Think of a short stay in a B&B, small hotel or an inn, a longer stay in a cosy cottage, a luncheon, supper or even a wedding; sports like canoeing, sailing, swimming or golf. Quite a few estates have their own produce, such as wine, fruits and vegetables.
