Washington State is located on the coast in the Pacific northwest, and is set north of Oregon, west of Idaho and south of the Canadian province of British Columbia, the perfect location for your next villa holiday.
Named after George Washington, the first President, it tends to be referred to as Washington State so as not to be confused with the nation's capital Washington D.C. Also known as the "Evergreen State" it is the birthplace of grunge or the Seattle sound and speciality coffee and the producer of world-renowned wine.
A state of many contrasts, with the hot and dry Wine Country to the south, the cosmopolitan "Emerald City" of Seattle to the west which sits in the shadow of the snow-tipped mountains. There are also plenty of great outdoor activities and national parks such as North Cascades and Mount Rainier, quiet beaches, giant forests including a temperate rainforest, remote coves, salmon-filled, great waterfalls, volcanoes and magnificent snow sports during the winter months. Whatever you decide to do in Washington, you will not be disappointed.
