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.

I'm disappointed in your comments made 3 months after your 9 days August visit. When you contacted on Aug 9 you only inquired about the wifi and made no mention at that time on the state of the house. If there was a problem, you could have contacted us or the rental agency immediately to have these issues resolved to make your stay more pleasant. We have never had any issues from previous visitors in all the years with this property, and we invite you and your 4 guess for a return visit.

Thank you so much for leaving this nice review - we have to limit the airconditioning as many people leave them running 24 hours a day when they are not even in the property and spending the day at the beach. As long as you are in the property it is only a matter of pressing the button to restart the air conditioning. Of course all hotels us a key card system and door sensors so if a client is not in the property or if a door is opened the aircon is switched off. Unfortunately we have to put in timers as i would not be able to offer such a good rental rate as the electricity bills can be as high as €250 Euros per week when the airconditioning is abused and of course pushing the units 24 hours a day is also going to damage the units.
I do appreciated your feedback and hope to see you again :-)
