  • Second visit

    "This is the first review but in fact it was already the second time in this apartment. Being an engineer on assignment in France, sent abroad by my company, this time we arrived with our two daughters who are now 12 and 14 years old and who also enjoyed it very much to spend one week in the French capital. In fact we didn't spent much time in the apartment but this is a good sign! We spent many hours in the city during daylight and in the evening we discovered the quarter around the Lourmel metro station on our own. And in fact this is something I really like very much in France, it's not necessary to always go to the famous addresses like 'Les deux Magots' etc in the heart of the city., but very often there are nice restaurants and bistrots just around the corner and I always found it worth to discover ones' own quarter of the town. For example the former Portuguese restaurant 'Vasco da Gama' is now an Italian one called 'Casa Roma' where you can find a good Pizza and just beside, still rue Vasco de Gama is a Catalan restaurant, named 'Au Derrick Catalan' with Spanish and Catalan food, located at the corner rue Vasco de Gama/rue Lecourbe. There's even a traditional French restaurant to be found in rue Vasco de Gama, it 's the 'L'os à Moelle' who offers a menu of several courses. Needless to say that we tried and tasted them all and just after leaving the Lourmel Metro station we discovered the bistro Le Buron for us, where we spend several hours - not just once but each night or evening just after leaving the metro we entered into this bistro to take a sundowner. All in all it has been a fantastic week for us and everyone enjoyed it very much. Especially the girls had a lot of fun in discovering a European capital where they understood each word! After now three years in France at an international school they are now quite fluent in French - and I hope that they will keep it"

  • Excellent Apartment and Superb Location

    "The property was bright, clean, well-maintained and in a secure apartment block. It had everything you could need, a home from home. It was well-managed by the very helpful owner, who gave excellent customer service, along with her English-speaking colleague, Alain. It was in a perfect location for seeing the best of Cannes, access being from the grounds of the Grand Hotel and directly on the Croisette. I would highly recommend it, with ample space for 4 people staying as both the bedroom and lounge are separate rooms with doors to the hallway and access to kitchen and shower room. There is a good sized full-width balcony, with afternoon sun and plenty of chairs/sun loungers with access from both the lounge and bedroom. This is the second time we have stayed, the extra layer of double glazing to the bedroom made a big difference when blocking out the street noise. There is an abundance of restaurants within the immediate vicinity. The Saturday antiques fayre in the square is interesting. We will miss our evening walks along the colourful Croisette. There's always somewhere to sit, day or evening watching the boats and harbour lights. The apartment is close to Cannes Marina/Old Port, Castle and Le Suquet, as well as the famous Rue d'Antibes. Boules is played near the Old Port. There is a good supermarket just two streets back from the apartment with English/French pharmacy very close. The apartment has everything you might need, is suitable for all ages and comes highly recommended."

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.
