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.

Thank you for your review, please note service was not used. This is because it is a self catering apartement and the agent is usually only seen at the beginning to meet and greet with keys and they can help with finding nearest shops and restaraunts. They also clean the apartment to excellent standards. Of course a contact telephone number is provided for the agent as they can provide extra services if required. The beach is a 15-20 minute walk, or a 2 minute drive. Although if hiring a car you may explore all the wonderful beaches in the vicinity.
