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.
“Fantastic apartment” This apartment has absolutely everything you need. Two bathrooms for those that like their own space, great views, comfortable beds and good bars in walking distance. I can't stress enough about how lovely the owner was and how

Thank you for a fabulous review, you’ve just about covered everything. We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay. I am going to have to do something in regards to the WiFi. The gadget’s called a T-Mobile pointer. It’s called a pointer because you find the best signal available and simply point it at it (or just fix it on the wall in that position). It might just be in the wrong place. I’ll move it about and see if I can get a better signal. Glad it didn’t spoil your holiday.
Haste ye back.
