Great Houses of Europe
Were these, then, Jewish country houses, and if so how can we integrate them into our understanding of Jewish heritage and the Jewish built environment? The answers to these questions are not straightforward. These are all properties with individual stories, and the Jews who owned them related to their Jewishness in very different ways.
Sometimes of course they were religious. The Montefiore synagogue and mausoleum in Ramsgate mean that the Jewishness of East Cliff Lodge is part of its legacy. Of course, most of the Jews who bought or developed country houses were relatively disengaged from their Jewishness. Many felt conflicted about it, and some sought to escape it through conversion.
Yet their contemporaries — unlike the heritage industry — invariably related to these men and women as Jews. And in a rural landscape so powerfully shaped by Christianity, it is hard to argue that their Jewishness did not matter. Seller Rating:. Condition: Good.

It's modern and stands out architecturally in such a rural environment yet it's also comfortable, with three large doubles. It has stark walls, polished concrete floors, oversized Anglepoise lamps and butterfly chairs on the raised veranda, and an internal courtyard has a table for shady breakfasts and candlelit suppers.

The heated pool is on the roof and is surrounded by a deck with bright-orange sunbeds. Sal restaurant , one of the best in the area, sits on stilts at the head of the beach — book for lunch. This family-run self-catering complex has studios and apartments, but the half-dozen two- and three-bedroom villas are the real draw.

There's no pool but the low-rise whitewashed buildings, behind the calm waters of Vromolimnos beach, have smooth stone floors, sea-view balconies and billowing muslin curtains. As the name suggests, this place is all about the garden: mature olive trees, trailing fuchsia, bougainvillea and a gate on to pebbly Barbati beach. There's a small pool, rattan sofas under a pergola and a barbecue for sizzling fish.
The unusual layout — one bedroom is downstairs by the sitting room; the other is accessed by an outdoor staircase and has its own kitchenette - makes it great for two couples. In the north of the island, just a minute potter from historic Rethymnon, this two-bedroom terraced house shares a pool and deck with three others. If you don't mind a bit of neighbourly chatter over the picket fences, it's great; if you do mind, get a gang of friends to rent the others. Rooms are furnished in dark wood and have beamed ceilings, but oversized glass doors let in masses of daylight.

It may be Ikea'd up to the nines, but this house has been kitted out with exactly what you need if you have toddlers in tow, with sleek and, most importantly, wipe-clean furniture , tiled floors and a pool that can be watched from almost every room. Through the arbor at the end of the garden lies the European Blue Flag-awarded shingle-and-sand Latchi beach, with excellent swimming and a handful of tavernas.
Right on the water's edge with fantastic views across to the Greek island of Symi, Askim is one of a trio of modern vine-covered villas along stony Saranda cove. There's a private jetty jutting out into the warm Aegean and sensational snorkelling. Extras such as kayaks, gulet trips and car hire are all chucked in, so the set up here is much more all-encompassing than the average house hire.
On the island of Brac, a minute ferry ride from Split, this castaway blue-shuttered cabin overlooking the Adriatic has its own private beach and no neighbours in sight. And with electricity from the rooftop solar panels, rainwater tanks hooked up to the bathroom and kitchen, and thick stone walls negating the need for air conditioning, it's an eco hideout, too.
As well as two double bedrooms there's also a small area for kids to play in, too. The glitz and megayachts of the Costa Smerelda are km to the north, but feel a million miles away from this sweet, straightforward house by a postcard-worthy beach just outside the small town of Villasimius, an hour from Cagliari airport. The interior is very simple, but you'll be outside the whole time anyway, lounging in the shady seating area or in a swing chair on the roof terrace.
