  • Everything we wanted for our vacation and more!!

    "My wife and I spend the first four nights of our weeklong anniversary vacation to northern Italy here. It was without question SPECTACULAR!! The apartment had everything we needed and was conveniently located for traveling around the Lake Como area. We absolutely loved sitting on the balconies in the mornings sipping coffee and eating pastries watching the sun come up over the lake to start our day. And we loved coming back to enjoy some wine after a full day of exploring. We would highly recommend this place and its owner Rosie who provided everything we needed so we could have one of the best vacations of our 33 years together."

  • Central, cosy, has everything you need to enjoy your stay

    "My teenage daughter and I loved our stay in the apartment. It is only a couple of hundred meters from crowded Montmartre on a more quiet yet central street, such a nice place to come and chill after spending a day in the city (don’t forget, it has its own terrace)! We could find everything we needed within just minutes of walk: supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, take away, pharmacies (English speaking staff), bakeries, kiosks, metro stations, etc.. What I really loved is how the place is organized and equipped and labelled in English for easy reference. We enjoyed going through travel guides, maps and books about French cuisine available in the apartment. There was various useful information organized in a folder on a desk, just like in a hotel, even better, that was very nice. The apartment is tastefully decorated. The kitchen is lovely – has everything in it to cook and serve a nice dinner, even spices. For us it felt like home away from home. Paula, landlord, was responsive and helpful and the whole experience was nice and easy. I highly recommend this apartment. Although it is not big, but with high ceiling it feels spacious, beds are super comfortable, bathroom is great, so all and all - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

  • Warm welcome in beautful Provence

    "Holydays House is a charming, clean, well-maintained property with everything you could need for your stay and as advertised. The owners, together with their daughter were delightful, friendly hosts and made us feel more than welcome. The use of the swimming pool as well as the barbecue area was most welcome as were the little 'extras' of local olive oil, wine, fruit and vegetables as well as a bunch of lavendar from the garden for both me and my daughter in law at the end of our stay. The property is situated in a very beautiful part of the country and just a short distance from St Remy de Provence, with it's wonderful side streets and magnificent restaurants, notably La Cigale and L'Industrie in St Remy. Holydays is a great base from which to visit the area - we would especially recommend Gréoux les Bains in the National Park, Van Gogh's bridge at Arles and of course Avignon. We would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone whether for just a relaxing break or a sight seeing base."

Greece Travel Tips

Best Time of Year to Travel to Greece Vacation Rentals

Greece enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate with little regional variation. Summers are typically hot and dry, and rain occurs mostly in the cooler winter months. For at least seven months of the year, Greece enjoys a warm climate. The most pleasant months are generally May to June and September to October. July and August can get particularly hot, and you will find that most locals make use of a midday siesta to avoid the extreme heat. Many shops and restaurants close between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. which can be inconvenient if you are not aware of this. If you want to enjoy the warm climate and beaches, summertime is definitely the best time to visit Greece. If you have more of an interest in Greek culture and history then you may enjoy traveling in the off-peak season. Many of the major sites are found in and around the capital Athens which can get very crowded during the busy tourist season. It’s often more pleasant to travel around in slightly cooler weather and you can linger longer at the sites and attractions that interest you.

Traveling to Greece Villas

To get to Greece, there are number of different transport options. For travelers from North America or northern Europe, it will be most convenient to fly into Athens and from there connect on to your domestic destination. The Athens Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport is located in Sparta which is just outside of Athens. The airport is the country’s busiest and hosts several international airlines. There are regular daily scheduled flights between Athens and most European cities. Travelers from North America and other parts of the world may need to route via London, Amsterdam or Madrid and then connect to Athens. For visitors from the eastern parts of Europe, there are good rail connections with Thessaloniki which is Greece’s main rail hub. During the summer months, there are frequent ferry connections between Greece and its neighboring countries. Many cruise ships also visit the Greek isles and this is a great way to explore the Mediterranean coast.

Depending on where you are traveling in Greece, there is a wide variety of different attractions available. If you plan to spend some time in and around Athens, you can enjoy the many ancient sites the city has to offer. One of the most famous places to visit is the Acropolis which is the site of the sacred rock. This monument dominates the Athenian skyline and can be seen from almost anywhere in the city. It also contains the ruins of the Parthenon. The Agora was once the core of ancient Athens. It was in this large open space that many commercial, political and social events took place. It was turned into a residential area in the 19th century. Although today it is mostly ruins, there are still several interesting sites worth visiting. Delphi is located approximately 100 miles northwest of Athens. It was once considered to be cultural heart of Greece and is linked to several well-known Greek legends.
