  • Beautiful La Capanna

    "Our family of four, including two younger adults, enjoyed our stay at La Capanna. Beautiful location and vistas. Peaceful, very quiet, overlooking vineyards and olive groves. Perfect for those who want to get away from it all, with limited wi-fi! The house itself was spacious, clean, and a wonderful place to cook family meals, with high quality amenities. Centrally located, day trips are recommended. Agritourismo property contains a working winery, producing renowned Castell' in Villa Chianti. Our hostess Coralia was cordial and helpful. Tuscan scenery was amazing. A truly unique and beautiful place for those who want peace and quiet and a base from which to visit Tuscany."

  • Perfect Place to Perch!

    "My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this flat very much. It was very comfortable and though small, had plenty of space for the two of us to rest and relax after long days of sightseeing in and around London. The flat was quiet and the bed was very comfortable so we awoke refreshed each day and ready for more London fun! We thought the Highgate neighborhood was lovely and especially enjoyed our visit to the Highgate Cemetery. We also appreciated the list of restaurant suggestions Krista sent to us. We had breakfast at Cook's on the Hill several days and had delicious kabobs from Rose for dinner one night. There were plenty of stores nearby for getting necessary groceries and supplies for our stay. I believe that Krista also suggested getting a double decker bus from Highgate into London and we loved that ride. We got to see so much as we rode in above ground. We did, however, use The Tube most of the time and found the location of the station very convenient to the flat. We felt very safe walking to the flat even at night. We were happy to have the washer and dryer in the flat. The limits on the hours of use were a bit difficult for us as we were usually out early in the morning and did not return until around 8 p.m. each night. They requested that we night do laundry after 8 and I understand that neighbors below could be disturbed by the spin cycle. I did manage to get my laundry done one night though and I was pleased that I could pack fewer clothes so I would say it was worth the inconvenience of having to come home early that night. Working with Krista was very easy. She responded quickly to questions and processed the refund of the deposit quickly. We loved her detailed letter with directions to the flat and clear instructions on what to do as we left the flat. I highly recommend this property and hope to return to it at some point!"

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.
