  • Passeig De Gracia -Plaza Catalunya, Eixample

    "We were very happy with this studio. I think it is perfect for a couple, more than 2 would be possible but less comfortable. The location is perfect, the studio very pleasant and beautifully prepared for visitors who may arrive with no more than their clothes ie milk, juice, shampoo, detergent etc etc all provided at least for starters. Also Barcelona handbooks for tourists to borrow. Close to airport bus, Hop on Hop off bus, Metro, public buses."

  • Wunderschön and delightful!!!

    "I could not have asked for a better location for my research visit and short family vacation to Swabia. Indeed, arriving a week before my family so that I could undertake some research in Stuttgart, I was welcomed by the incredibly generous and gracious host and owner. Hedelfingen is not far at all from downtown Stuttgart (20 mins max with the U-Bahn), which made my research at the Hauptstaatsarchiv a breeze. And, the town itself is quite cute, with wonderful neighboring towns as well (e.g., Rohracker, Obertürkheim, Uhlbach, Esslingen, etc.). All amenities are within 5 mins by foot, and the links to public transportation are amazing and most convenient. When my family arrived, including 13-year-old twins, we felt right at home, and the owner made sure that we had everything we needed, like parking for our rental car. For the week that they joined me, my family and I made several excursions throughout Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria. Other reviewers have noted how ideal the location is for sightseeing, and they are not at all wrong. We visited parts of Bavaria, Lake Constance, the Black Forest, and lots of Württemberg. The property was perfect for us. We enjoyed a number of meals around the table, rested comfortably, and even spent one afternoon just relaxing and reading in the apartment. Although as an historian of Swabia I am clearly biased, I must say that modern-day Württemberg is an undiscovered gem for tourism. So much to see, so much to do, so much good food to eat, and so few tourists. The other tourist traps of Germany pale in comparison. Of course, now that I have written this, I am sure to incur the wrath of my Swabian friends, who like the fact that they are not overrun by tourists. Seriously though, I cannot overstate how pleasant, warm, and friendly this region is. There is nothing quite like walking through the "Weinberge" of Swabia. The views are amazing, and the wine is "nicht so schlimm auch." After my family returned to the States, I had another 2+ weeks of research in the city archives of Göppingen. They were most productive and most enjoyable, particularly because the transportation was so convenient to the location, everything was close by, and the owner stopped by regularly to invite me to various events. Indeed, if I hadn't had so much to do in the archives, then I easily could have spent the time exploring and enjoying the region and the warm friendship of the owner! Most highly recommended!!!"

Croatia Travel Tips

Best Time of Year to Visit Croatia Vacation Rentals

Croatia’s climate is largely dominated by the warm Mediterranean Sea. The coastal areas in particular benefit from a relatively mild climate with warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters. Because it is drier, summer tends to be the most popular times to visit Croatia. Even though it gets hot, there is typically always a cooling breeze from the Mediterranean that provides some welcome relief. The summer months are from June to September and the peak tourist season is during the months of July and August. For those traveling to Croatia for its cultural and historic attractions, you can benefit from off-season rates. Many of the attractions are indoors so good weather isn't crucial to your trip.

Croatia Travel Attractions and Activities

Croatia is a spectacularly beautiful country. Tall mountains and high cliffs contrast with the calm turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea. The result is a spectacular and dramatic coastline. Croatia is one of the Mediterranean’s most popular destinations for cruising. The more than 1,000 islands that are located off the coast, providing the perfect destination for sailing. You can charter a yacht with a crew or go sailing on your own if you have the required qualifications. In recent years, more dive sites are being opened up. There are impressive walls and drop-offs, a collection of ancient wrecks, and magnificent corals. For most of the summer, the visibility is good and the warm water temperatures complete the combination that makes Croatia an excellent scuba diving destination. You will need to obtain the necessary diving permits. Also be aware that there are some areas in marine reserves and near busy sea routes that are off limits for diving.
