  • Two lovely weeks in Orvieto

    "We stayed at Casa Flavia for two weeks in September. The location of the apartment is perfect for exploring Orvieto. Everything one would like to see is within easy walking distance. The apartment is very clean and comfortable with a pleasant outdoor terrace to relax with a coffee or a glass of wine. The delightful owner, Roberta, is extremely helpful, and has an extensive knowledge of Orvieto and the surrounding area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

  • Excellent location, Beautiful flat

    "We arrived Sept.27 and spent 6 nights at the apartment. Upon exiting the cab we were immediately impressed with the building. Check-in was easy. The concierge at the desk was friendly, had our names on the list, handed us the keys and so our time in London began. The apartment was everything we hoped and more. The apartment is a corner unit and has plenty of windows to let as much light as one could want. All the essentials you would need are provided. From a stove top and oven, to dishes, glasses , linen etc... The apartment itself is a great size and the couch does pull out as an extra bed if need be. The décor is modern and overall, a wonderful apartment to stay in. As a few people have previously mentioned, there is a grocery store approximately a two minute walk from the apartment as well as a starbucks for those who need their fix of coffee. Walk out of the building, turn right and across the street is Sainsbury's grocery and starbucks. Walk out the building and turn left, you are a 5 minute walk to the Queen's Head pub (definitely a place to go should you want a traditional style pub to sit and relax in). The apartment is central to so many things. It is about a 15 minute walk to the Sloane tube station. We found after taking the tube a few times we ended up preferring the double-decker buses. It's like jumping on a tour bus each time. you get see different streets, shops, buildings. The bus routes run everywhere and I would recommend trying out the buses. An Oyster card is the way to go if you plan on taking public transit during your stay, it's well worth it. When you leave the apartment, if you turn right and begin walking, it is only about a 20 minute walk to Harrod's. Just walking around the different streets of the neighborhood you will quickly realize that the apartment is spot on in location and convenience. As mentioned at the beginning, the apartment building is beautiful and the apartment is fantastic. I also want to say thanks to Caroline as dealing with her was such an easy process.."

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.
