We've found five breaks where you can escape the Olympics. No TV, limited phone signal and barely any wifi. See you there - just don't say the 'O' word...
Discover the wilds of Sweden
Take a six-day tour into the wilderness of the Bergslagen forest with Tabor Holidays to get up close with its animal inhabitants. You'll take part in an evening moose safari, listen to the sound of the wolves howling in their natural habitat and go on a beaver-watching tour at sunset by boat.
Trip highlights include time at the Grimsö Wildlife Research Station, Sweden’s leading research centre for predators such as lynx, brown bears and wolves, and you'll spend a magical night under canvas in the heart of wolf territory. There's no TV in the forest, so you're guaranteed to be free, for five nights at least, from medal madness.
Soak up the sun in the Maldives
We like the attitude in many Maldives resorts of 'no news and no shoes'. If you stay in the Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu, the cheaper rooms and villas don't have TVs at all.
What might you do now you can't stare slack-jawed at the trampolining final? Well, how about snorkeling around the reef, enjoying the sheltered lagoon, perhaps a spot of soaking up the sun on the deck after a hearty champagne breakfast?
If you have to have five-star all the way, then try Soneva Fushi instead. The Rehendi rooms have hidden TVs - your butler need never let on where they are... Also, wifi is only available on request - just make sure you don't ask for it. Let the digital clatter be replaced by the sound of lapping waves and cries of the birds instead.
Hide away in a Welsh cottage
Get far, far away from everyone in a rural retreat in Wales.
You'll have to pass through three farm fields along a gravel track and through three gates to get to Manal Cottage but when you do, you'll be awfully glad that you did.
This south-facing farmhouse is surrounded by fields and your new neighbours are the sheep. The phone signal is pleasingly bad - you'll have to scramble to the top of the hill to get a good signal - and although there is a TV in the cottage, it's for playing DVDs only as there's no reception. Olympic-free bliss might be in the Brechfa Forest...
La vie en rose in Morocco
Idyllically set on a rose farm, 45 minutes from Marrakech, there is a view over the Atlas mountains. Spend your days walking the mountain trails, swimming in the lake, mountain biking and horse riding, and, of course, when in Morocco, a must-do is a hammam and scrub - the raditional skin-smoothing spa treatment.
Not remote enough? Then book in for a camping experience, no electricity, just the stars and moon to light your way. 100 meters? What 100 meters?
Rugged retreat in Scotland
Get almost as far away from the London Olympics without leaving the UK or falling into the sea, by heading for Kilchoan, north of the Isle of Mull and south of Eigg to the isolated Old Kimeroy Church, a renovated retreat miles from anywhere.
Board games and books will be your entertainment for your stay here, along with walks through the beautiful gently sloping mountains and along the rugged seashore. While you're there, hop on a ferry to Tobermory to see the town that gave its name to our favourite womble - how often do you get the chance to do that?
This is a real retreat, no mobile reception, no TV and no shop or restaurant for more than three miles. Easily a gold winner in the Olympic-avoidance stakes.
