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.

We are very happy to here you enjoyed your stay at our villa in Albufeira.
We are also sorry for the barking dog. There aren`t any present dogs all year round, near the villa, that we know of. But what we do have sometimes, are people coming on holidays to nearby villas bringing there pets along, and this might have been the situation.
That`s why we always ask our guests to keep in touch with us so we can solve these minor issues. I simple phone call could have been enough to solve this issue.
Thanks for you opinion.

I would just like to respond to this review.
Firstly the email conversation regarding the mess that was left was started on 22nd May so pretty much straight after your departure.
The cleaners arrived to find the house doors wide open, front and back.
The house was found to be in a real mess with food remains, cigarette buts, bottles and clothing left strewn across the house. The sandwich maker in the house had to be disgarded as it was in a real mess, leather suite was covered in food/drink marks, glass tables were badly scratched, marks all over the walls and 2 sun loungers went missing.
In all the time we have been renting the house out we have NEVER kept a deposit, but the damage to the house, replacement items (such as sandwich maker and sunloungers) plus the cleaning left us with a €380 bill to pay. Keeping the €300 deposit has still left us €80 short in the end but we decided just to draw a line under this.
As you will see from all of our other reviews and comments we provide a high standard house and personal service which every one of our guests have enjoyed. We have had nothing but positive feedback in the past and where people break items they own up or replace them before departing.

Thank you for having stayed with us and for posting your review. It was our pleasure to have met you and your lovely family and to have contributed to making your stay as comfortable as possible. Having stayed with us for almost a month over Easter, your experience in Gold is invaluable as it helps future guests to better understand what the apartment offers and its pristine location, practically surrounded by everything anyone will need while on holiday. It is good to know that the school you attended was very close and that you also made full use of the bus service (just across the road, as are the ferry boats as well).
We hope the children loved the Easter eggs and the 'figolli' and trust you had a wonderful holiday experience which you will hold dear for a long time to come. We look forward to hearing again from you and to have you again as our guests in the future.
