  • Everything was great!

    "This was our first experience renting an apartment and Jose quickly made us feel comfortable as he was there, as promised, upon our arrival. The apartment was clean, quiet and comfortable and conveniently located to transportation and great streets with wonderful outdoor seating. Jose is a perfect host and was always available. Thank you Jose! We loved Barcelona!"

  • Perfect Parisian Apt in a Perfect Location!

    "After several trips to Paris and staying in several different hotels, we decided to try an apt. It was absolutely perfect for 2 couples. The location can't be beat, close to Metro Stations, La Bon Marche ( for shopping), and bistros for wonderful Parisian food & wine! The owner, Anne, is a lovely lady, helping us with arrangements, meeting us at the apt, and thoroughly going over all aspects of the apt, and all the amenities! It was so nice to come "home" every night and enjoy a glass of wine while reviewing all the photos we had taken. So much nicer than being in a small hotel room! This is a perfect place to stay, especially for 2 couples. I am looking forward to our next visit to Paris, and staying again in this wonderful apt! No more hotel rooms for us!!"

  • Lovely apartment - full of character

    "Two of stayed here and had a wonderful holiday. The apartment had everything we needed, is very clean and is in a really convenient location close to the waterfront and all the restaurants. Cassie itself is lovely but so is the surrounding area - whether the crystal-clear water of the Calanques which run from Cassis to Marseilles, or the wine areas, including Bandol, so close by. We hope to return soon."

  • Tuscany as it should be

    "We stayed at La Ginestra in early September 2014 and it was fabulous. The property is situated just outside of Celle Sul Rigo where you can get all that you need for your stay in a 5 minutes walk. However, when you are in the house or its nice garden, the property seems quite remote and we liked that. From the terrace you have a perfect view on the Tuscan hills and valleys. The facilities of the house are perfect starting with the gas powered oven to a bedroom where you can take a look outside in the Tuscan hills while lying in the bed. Special thanks to Maurizio who is the property manager. He is very obliging and helps you out whenever you need something. Perfectly organized. Don't miss out: - Breakfast on the terrace of La Ginestra with the fog floating in the valley below - A drive from Pienza via Radicofani to Celle Sul Rigo at sundown - A bath in the public hot springs in San Casciano - A meal at La Pace in Celle Sul Rigo Thanks again Richard and Maurizio!"

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.
