What is a Vacation Rental?

A vacation rental is a house or apartment that you rent by the week. They are also called holiday rentals, tourist rentals, holiday cottages, and self catering.

What are the benefits?

Vacation rentals are less expensive per night than hotels. You save even more money by doing some of your own cooking. This makes it possible to have a longer and slower trip. We find it tiring to stay in hotels, constantly surrounded by lots of people and eating every meal in a restaurant. With a vacation rental, you settle in and make the place your own. You have more space. Usually you have a private kitchen where you can cook, or just reheat meals, a private area central to the city where you can spend a few hours just enjoying the sun, reading a book, recovering from the traveling, thinking about what you have seen, and planning what you want to see next.
