  • This apartment was beautiful and tastefully decorated, if a little on the small side.

    "Many thanks to the owners for making our stay enjoyable. The apartment was as it was described in the listing. It was clean, and everything was in working order. The kitchen had everything you need and more. The owners were very friendly and gave us good information about the local area. It was so easy getting around Paris from the apartment, there were a couple of metro stations nearby but also buses and taxis which great. The local area had plenty of excellent little cafés and shops. I'd definitely recommend this property."

  • As good as it gets !!!!!!!!!!!

    "Our group of 11 enjoyed the La Citronneraie villa in Nice very, very much. The kitchen had everything that we needed to make our meals, the dining area was large enough to accommodate us all comfortably. The outside dining table could also comfortably hold our entire group. We loved lounging in the pool and hot tub, after a day of touring the beautiful Cote d'Azure. When evening fell, we all retired to the large living area to continue our conversations about our days' outings. The bedrooms were comfortable, charming and spacious. The owner was very easy to communicate with and she responded to each and every question of mine, via email, very promptly and completely. Most of our group rented cars. There is room for four cars in the driveway, all safely locked behind an automatic gate. Note - getting the cars in/out of the gate was a little challenging, but nothing that our group couldn't handle. Two in our group relied on mass transportation. There are two local buses that stop about 50 yards from the entrance. From that pickup, the buses head to the Nice rail station, where all other local transport can be found. I can heartily suggest hiring a local chef named 'Sofonea Emmanuel' to cook at least one dinner for your group. The dinner, dessert will be remembered for a long time. Thank you again, we all enjoyed your villa very much !"

  • Loved this conveniently located apartment!

    "My friend and I recently visited Paris for two days and stayed in this apartment. The apartment is small but all that two people need. The location is great--in walking distance of shops, bakeries,and many famous sites in Paris! The owner, Leila, was accessible and extremely helpful in making our dream trip to Paris a reality."

England Travel Tips

Eager to Get Away? Try England

England, with its ancient and rich history, is the largest country in the United Kingdom. It is home to many famous sites including Westminster Abbey, the Tower Bridge, Stonehenge, and the Globe Theatre. From its sprawling green countrysides to its modern metropolitan centers, England travel will afford you the cultural and peaceful retreat you are looking for. Many people consider London as the place to visit when coming to England. Other cities such as Manchester and Liverpool (home of the Beatles) are also worth a look.

Traveling to England

For most people visiting England, traveling by air will be the first, and longest, part of the journey. There is no shortage of flights going to and coming from the United Kingdom, so really it comes down to when you want to travel and how much you want to spend. You will find that the best-priced tickets are available for winter travel. It is during that time that many of the most popular attractions are less crowded and open. Another way to obtain affordable tickets is to plan a trip that has several destinations. As long as you have got the time and are up for the adventure, that may be a great way to spend your vacation! Just remember, when you fly internationally, get to the airport with plenty of time to spare-–at least two hours-–and make sure your passport is current.

Getting Around England

If you plan to stay in the metropolitan areas like London, public transportation is the way to go. There really is no need to rent a car. There is so much traffic and hardly any parking; who wants to deal with that? London has a really well organized public transport network that consists of the tube (subway) and buses. There are also plenty of black taxis willing to take you anywhere you would like to go.

Where to go in England

As you book England vacation rentals, it is essential to think about where you might want to go during your trip. A very popular pastime for tourists is to visit historic buildings and cathedrals throughout the country. In London alone, there is a wide selection of landmarks that you might want to see. Some of the most popular places to visit include Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Canterbury Cathedral, the Tower of London, the London Bridge, and Canterbury Cathedral. And the London Zoo is always good for the kids! Think about the places you would like to see most and plan your trip and accommodations accordingly.

Outdoor Adventures in England

Who said vacationing in England meant you had to stay indoors? The great outdoors definitely calls to the Brits so once you reach England, it might do you some good to take in some fresh English air. The Lake District is a protected area that spans miles upon miles of pubs, walking trails, and lakes. Some of the most beautiful England cottages are located in the Lake District. If you would rather stay a little closer to the city, try Hyde Park in the heart of London. The park is filled with many monuments and will not take you away from the center of things for too long.

The Shopping is Amazing

When you visit England, London especially, you must not go home without a day of shopping. Even if you do not buy anything, the window shopping alone is worth talking about! London is one of the fashion capitals of the world which means you will have all the designer duds you can think of right at your fingertips. As you shop 'til you drop, the rest of your family might like a bite to eat. There are plenty of cafes, restaurants, and eateries offering a variety of gastronomic delights and locale fare.

Planning Your Trip Around the Weather

First and foremost, there is no dry season in England. Though the climate is fairly temperate, it is also very wet throughout the year. If you do not like cold, wet winters, the summer may be your best bet. Though there is still rain, the temperature is on the warmer side. No matter what time of year, do not forget to pack your umbrella and rain boots.
