Finding unspoiled landscapes and getting away from the holiday crowds is easy - just head for Maine. The "Pine Tree State" is vast, as big as all of the other five New England states put together. It has mountains and valleys, lakes and rushing rivers guarded by those signature pine trees.
The stunning coastline is peppered with lighthouses, a Maine trademark. Here, the Atlantic surges past thousands of little islands to crash onto granite rocks and is often likened to the Atlantic coasts of Cornwall, Ireland or Scotland.
Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the video for our take on this important topic.
