Imagine a holiday without Wi-Fi, without broadband, without 3G. Sounds blissful? Escape the modern world in the following places. (Save all your Emerald Streets for when you get home.)

PRIVATE ISLAND LIFE

Denis Private Island in the Seychelles has no cars, and the beachfront cottages have no phone, TV or internet. But, there is a bar, restaurant, library, tennis courts and plenty of pristine beach. A one-week stay, full board, with flights from Heathrow is £3,359 per person; Western & Oriental

RUSTIL WALES

Rural idyll on the outside, Grand Designs project on the inside, Bryncyn is a two-bedroom cottage with expansive views of the Carmarthenshire hills. Who needs a TV when there's an outdoor hot tub?

Sleeps 6; from £259 for a three-night weekend break; Under The Thatch

INTREPID EXPLORING

Chiminos Island Lodge in north Guatemala is accesses by a two-hour boat journey from Sayaxché. It's hidden in dense forest and makes a great base for hiking, swimming, canoeing (and no surfing the web). Villas (sleep four) from £280 per night full board; flights and transfers extra; i-escape.com

LAKESIDE IN FRANCE

The Fisherman’s Cabin nests on the edge of a lake in the Dordogne, France and power is supplied by solar panels and a water wheel. If you’re missing your electronic devices, play with the microscopes and art supplies in the cabin. Sleeps four, from £210 for a three-night weekend; Canopy & Stars

TRUCKING B&B

The Beer Moth used to just be a truck, then the roof was raised, parquet flooring laid and a four poster bed and kitchenette added. It's parked in the garden of Inshriach House in Aviemore in the Scottish Highlands. Sleeps two; from £120 for two nights; Canopy & Stars
