Save money on a city break by booking a stay at one of these top holiday rentals. Opting for a holiday apartment over a hotel will save you money per person and it means you can live like a local while you’re away.
City getaways make fantastic mini-breaks in the new year. Jet off to Rome, Florence or London to soak up the centuries of history, art and culture. Or turn your trip into a shopping spree or a romantic post-Christmas getaway.
With so many cheap flights on offer, European city breaks are even more affordable than before. You could even squeeze in a city stop on the way to your main holiday. And inviting friends or family along means you’ll each spend less on a shared city apartment or villa.

“Artistic video created too high expectations”

New construction and cleanliness of property

Even thought I respect every customers review I was surprised to read this one in particular because we are used to have very good opinions regarding our villa. Firstly I would like to emphasize that the video we show in our web was not made to create high expectations. The truth is that the great majority of our clients think that the villa is even better than what they expected.
We support the positive points this customer outlined in his review however we absolutely disagree with the negative opinions because we don’t consider them to be solid arguments.
1) I consider that the itinerary from the airport to our villa is clear because we always remember to send an email with the map and all the necessary information to guide our clients as better as possible. In 5 years we haven’t had any complaints regarding this point and I always give my phone number in case there is any problem.
2) Regarding this point I think that there was a misunderstanding because my mother doesn’t speak English. I am sure that the client probably understood that the towels and the sheets would be changed every 5 days however we always explain that we do this every 5 working days (therefore every week).
3) I always reimburse the deposit the day I tell the customer I will. If the client is not present when I arrive I leave the deposit in the entrance. I don’t specify an exact hour because I prefer not to bother my clients on their last day of holidays.
4) We don’t understand why this client complains about the 20 euro charge in swimming towels because it is just an option we give to our clients and no one is forced to pay for this service if they don’t want. Furthermore this client didn’t ask for this service neither paid for it. We don’t charge more money than the price we accord at the beginning.
5) Normally in all private renting villas there are no gimmicks; however we always leave what we consider necessary for our clients when they first arrive to the villa.
6) We are always flexible when our client asks to return the house at another time (we are sure many clients agree). In this case, we couldn’t be able to let them return the house later on that day, even though the calendar showed the availability of the villa on Saturday, because we had a private event on the same day.
7) Bed mattresses are white, clean and new.
8) We agree that the TV is not new but it works perfectly and we have all satellite channels.
9) The client’s last complain was concerning the noise that came from construction work going on nearby, however this is not possible because from April to October this is not permitted as it is a residential area.
In conclusion, our villa is a beautiful and peaceful option for family vacations. We ensure that our clients feel as comfortable as possible by taking care of every detail. We invite you to come and enjoy our family villa.
