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 had a great time when we stayed at the old workshop. The caretaker could not have been friendlier and the welcome bottle of wine was very nice. Would definitely recommend and we would love to visit… More

Thank you for your kind review and am glad you enjoyed the place. We now have a new staff called Amit replacing Kamal who is a good cook. So going forward it would much more kitchen support if you wish to have BBQ, family dinner etc. Other than that, i think you misspelled the distance to the beach, which is only 100-150 meters from the villa rather than a kilometre. Thank you once again and we look forward to you staying with us in the future.
