About Arcobaleno

Arcobaleno provides versatile self-catering for large parties of up to ten guests. This large holiday home sits in the tranquil picturesque Hampshire village of Sway, within the boundaries of the New Forest National Park.

Perfect for families and friends, Arcobaleno is just four miles from the bustling quayside market town of Lymington. A popoular haunt for those with a passion for sailing, Lymington has a great Saturday market, boutiques, high street names, pubs and restaurants, as well as the Keyhaven Nature Reserve, a short walk away along the sea wall. From Lymington you can catch the ferry to the Isle of Wight with its fabulous beaches - a great day trip out whether you explore the island by car or bike.

Offering the perfect mix of forest and sea, Arcobaleno is well positioned for discovering the beauty of the forest and enjoying its many attractions. Enjoy days exploring mile and miles of forest tracks and trails on foot or bike with an abundance of wildlife to spot along the way (including the famous New Forest ponies, donkeys, cows, pigs and even deer). Or head to the beach at Milford on Sea or Highcliffe with your blanket and picnic basket for a lazy day.

Attractions are plentiful with Beaulieu National Motor Museum, Buckler's Hard, Paultons Park (with Peppa Pig World) and Exbury Gardens being popular day trips out, or venture further afield and visit Salisbury, Portsmouth and the Dorset coast.
