You can find plenty of comfort and convenience in a bungalow, villa, cottage, cabin or house that's budget friendly and will allow you to enjoy all that Europe has to offer without putting a dent in your bank account.

Family cheap holiday accommodation allows you to save money by using the fully stocked kitchen or backyard barbecue to self-cater meals so you don't have to spend so much on eating out. That way, you can have more money to hit the local shops and find that perfect souvenir of your journey.
