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.
“Spot On.” Lovely, spacious, well equipped appartment in great location. Good size pool, with plenty of spare loungers! Just about walking distance (20 mins) to the beach (with children of 10 &11), through the natural parks alongside the beaches. Would

Thank you for your review, it was a pleasure to welcome you to our apartment and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Just to be clear for our future guests, the apartment is on the top floor of a 3 storey apartment building, so there are actually 3 flights of stairs, not 4. There are stairs in the apartment but this is because it is a double upper. Being at the top affords us the fabulous views we enjoy across Edinburgh.
Using paypal allows our guests to make credit card payments from all over the world. Whilst there are transaction charges for international payments, there are no charges for payments made in the UK. This is a secure and safe way of taking credit card payments. As owners we do have to pay for each transaction but this is not passed on to our guests. We do also accept direct payments.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm sorry if the flat was not quite warm enough for your first night - it is very difficult at this time of year to get the right temperature - one minute is freezing the next quite mild!
