  • Summer - August 2014

    "Sensational location - superb view. Area and villa are actual better than photos!! Villa is equipped with everything you need for a pleasant vacation and owner ( Jacques ) very cordial. During our stay we enjoyed the pool as much as possible, the small superb village of Gilette and the city of Cannes. We strongly recommend it to anyone with the intention of vacationing the area."

  • Outstanding!

    "From the first moment to the last, I and my 2 friends absolutely loved staying at this apartment. The spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower and the balcony alone would be worth booking it! It is spacious, the furniture is comfortable, and there are ample linens. The kitchen was packed with everything you could possibly need. The location is excellent. The Passy Metro station and bridge across the river are a short walk away. Take time to continue up the stairs to enjoy the lovely town of Passy. Crossing the river leads to restaurants and shops, and the Eiffel Tower. A walk down the avenue in the other direction leads to the Trocadero museums, parks and fountains, and bridge across the river to the Eiffel Tower and Champs du Mars. Alexi was at the apartment when we arrived and even met us very early the morning of our departure for checkout due to our flight schedule. He was wonderful. I highly recommend this apartment, and would definitely stay here again. You may be charged an additional 40 euro if you pay via the VRBO/HomeAway process as we did. The payment process is easy to use and secure, with prompt receipts and notifications. The Homeowners pay a transaction fee for this service, and this owner passed the fee on to us. By no means should this stop you from booking the apt! I only mention it so that future guests can avoid confusion when the final payment is due. This is a very minor detail when compared with the extraordinary experience of staying here. You will not regret it!"

Seasons to Visit the United Kingdom

The weather of the United Kingdom is characterized by rain, and a lot of it. The advantage of this is that the rural landscapes are perpetually green and very scenic. Winters are generally quite long and in the central and northern regions, snowfalls are not uncommon. Winter starts from mid-October and generally lasts until the end of April. Spring and autumn are usually quite short-lived. Summer is from June to August and daytime temperatures can get quite hot. On a sunny day, especially if it is on the weekend, you will see many of the locals out and about making the most of the good weather. Summertime is traditionally the peak tourist season and major tourist attractions can get very crowded. If you are willing to travel out of season and possible put up with a little bit of bad weather, you can benefit from some great travel deals.
