  • Would return in a heart beat!

    "Owners Peggy and Ben were easy to work with and a delight. The comfort, spaciousness, and beauty of the apartment exceeded our expectations. The location was great for experiencing and getting around in the old part of Beaune. The kitchen had everything we needed. We even hosted a simple dinner for 10 people! Anyone who has an issue with stairs should know that it's a third story walk-up."

  • Nice apartment in perfect location

    "My husband and I spent ten nights in this apartment and had a wonderful time. This is really in a perfect location for sightseeing. It is close enough to easily walk to all the sights of Florence, and yet it is on a quieter street away from the crowds of the most "touristy" areas. This apartment is very quiet since it is in the back of the building. It has nice hardwood floors, a beautiful view, a comfortable bed, and a very small but quite well-equipped kitchen. It was clean and bright. The A/C and wifi both worked well. (Keep your window screens closed in Florence or mosquitoes will come in.) There is a book in the apartment with lots of information about neighborhood services and restaurant recommendations, which we found very helpful. There is a wonderful farmers' market very close by. We had so much fun eating out in Florence that we never cooked in the apartment, but it was nice to have a small refrigerator for snacks and leftovers. The neighborhood and building are extremely safe and secure. We enjoy walking and had no trouble walking to the train station from the apartment to visit other towns (we took day trips to Pisa, Siena, and Arezzo). The apartment is best for two people; although it has a pull-out sofa, I think it might be a bit tight for four people. For seating, there is a sofa sized for two people and two dining chairs. There are a lot of stairs to climb to reach the apartment, and the spiral staircase to the bedroom is fairly steep and narrow, so this would not be suitable for some people. We have rented apartments before, and the communication with this owner/manager was the best we have experienced. All emails were answered promptly, everything was handled professionally, and Liana speaks perfect English. There were people in the building who could help if we had any questions or problems. I would rent this again."

Iceland Travel Tips

Getting to Iceland Vacation Rentals

The main international airport is located approximately 30 miles outside of the capital city of Reykjavik. The Kevlavik International Airport hosts regularly scheduled flights from many major U.S. cities, including Boston, New York City, Orlando and Minneapolis St. Paul. There are also frequent daily flight connections with Europe. Most flights route via London. Iceland is also a popular stop for cruise ships crossing the Atlantic. There are ferry services that connect Iceland with Germany, Norway and Denmark. Taxis operate in all major cities and serve the adjoining airports. There is also an extensive bus service in Iceland which is the more affordable way to get around. Car hire is available and rentals can be organized at the airports.

Visitors to Iceland Lodging

Iceland is one of those travel destinations that most first-time travelers won't think of visiting. Rather it is a destination that well-seasoned and more adventurous travelers prefer. The many distinctive natural attractions are things that you won't find anywhere else in the world. It is also a relatively expensive destination and therefore attracts the more affluent traveler. Those who love nature and the outdoors won't have a moment to spare if they want to explore all that Iceland has to offer. The birdwatching and whale watching are reported to be some of the best in Europe.

Iceland Travel Recommendations

Iceland is often referred to as the land of fire and ice, owing to the many volcanoes and glaciers that dominate the landscape. It is a destination that attracts the more adventurous traveler and offers a variety of cultural and outdoor activities. Snowmobile adventures are offered on the glaciers and make for a thrilling experience. Horseback riding excursions traverse lava fields and deserted beaches, and are a great way to explore the country. Iceland has some of the best whale watching sites in the world. Here, you can see humpback, minke, blue and sperm whales among others.

If you enjoy hiking, there are many routes you can follow. Some of the more popular hiking regions are in the Skaftafell National Park and Westfjords area. The Snaefellnes Peninsula is also known for its beautiful scenery. Because of the geothermal activity on Iceland, there are many areas that have mineral baths. The Blue Lagoon is one such area that attracts many visitors each year. The Westmann Islands are the breeding grounds for puffin. Each spring, these cute birds return to the islands to nest and stay for the summer season. When the autumn season starts, you can see some of the puffin chicks learning to fly for the first time. From May through September each year, visitors can experience the Northern Lights. These spectacular light formations keep the night skies ablaze and are something incredible to witness.

Seasons to Visit Iceland

Iceland generally has a cold climate and visitors need to be properly prepared. Even in the summertime, temperatures rarely reach 20 degrees Centigrade and in winter, they are well below freezing. Rainfall occurs throughout the year and good snowfall is experienced in the northern regions in winter. In the summer months, there is almost 24 hours of sunlight, owing to the country's far northern latitude. The Gulfstream is what dominates Iceland's climate and strong winds have been known to blow across the interior. If you want to explore the many landscapes, the summer months are the best time to do this. Summer runs from May through August. If you want to enjoy snow sports and see the Northern Lights, it's best to visit during the winter months which run from September to early May.
