Make a holiday cottage, apartment or villa in Europe your home away from home

Beachside or rural; mountains or cities – wherever you want to stay HomeAway will help you track down your ideal Europe holiday rental. It’s a part of the world that packs in a wealth of different climates and landscapes, as well as some of the world’s most important cities and most luxurious beach destinations. The selection of rentals is staggering, but you’ll be able to narrow your choices down according to accommodation-types, like chalets, cottages, villas and apartments and holiday homes in Europe. What’s more you can define the facilities and options that will make your holiday at an apartment in Europe extra comfortable and convenient – whether it’s pet-friendly owners and parking included, or modern essentials like internet and air-conditioning.

Things to do while staying in a European holiday rental

-Culture. Western culture was born here, so it follows that Europe should have abundant heritage, much of it impeccably preserved. There are more than four hundred UNESCO World Heritage Sites on this continent, including prehistory and the vestiges of Ancient Greece and Rome, through all eras - Byzantine times, medieval, the Renaissance and much more.

-Beaches. All countries are members of the Blue Flag organisation, which provides a international standard for beaches according to their cleanliness and services. There are more than 3,000 Blue Flag beaches of all varieties across the continent, in Mediterranean countries like Greece, Spain and Italy, but also on the Baltic, North Sea and Atlantic.

-Food and drink. Europe’s food and drink is anything but homogenous, with regional and local cheeses and wines protected in places by the EU and set to thrive into the future. The most popular cuisines have spread throughout the world - think haute-cuisine from France, tapas from Spain, pasta from Italy; the list goes on.

-Outdoor recreation. Europe boasts more than 350 national parks, many of which protect internationally renowned natural landmarks like volcanoes, mountain peaks, lakes and gorges. Hikers and cyclists are well catered for, with well-marked and maintained systems of trails. In winter skiing is available in all mountainous regions, but especially popular in the Alps, which span much of Central Europe.

-Family attractions. Iconic buildings and sights, both modern and historic, abound across Europe. Major cities also feature some of the world’s most prestigious museums, while there are a scattering of state of the art theme parks – Europa-Park in Germany, Disneyland Paris in France and PortAventura in Spain.

Weather in Europe

There are a range of climate systems across the continent, thanks to the huge variety of latitudes, topographies and proximities to oceans and seas. Visiting the Mediterranean region you’ll encounter warm, dry conditions in summer and mild winters. In the north and northwest there are temperate conditions, influenced by the Gulf Stream, while central and eastern Europe gets a continental climate of warm summers and cold winters. Mountainous areas have their own systems, like the Alps, which are cold and snowy in winter, and mostly mild and humid in summer.

Travel to Europe

There are a number of networks and international agreements that make road travel between European countries easier. For instance, the Schengen Agreement brought an end to border controls between participating countries. Interail and Eurail passes also allow visitors to travel with convenience on trains over large distances. Many countries also have high-speed lines, such as the TGV in France. It should be easy to reach your Europe holiday apartment by plane. Western and Central Europe has its main air travel hubs at Frankfurt (FRA), Paris (CDG), Amsterdam (AMS), Madrid (MAD) and London Heathrow (LHR), but almost every popular destination in every country is close to an international airport.

He was very warm and friendly and welcomed us with a bottle of wine & chocolates plus milk in the fridge! This 2 bedroom apartment with an ensuite is beautifully decorated, very well-equipped and the cleanest apartment we have stayed in throughout our travels! It's really a home away from home. It was very spacious for the four of us, we had very good sleep and enjoyed watching the Euro matches on TV while eating our dinners. The apartment is located by the marina and beside the beach (you have a view of the walkway from the living room..what more can you ask for?). It's a wonderful walk by the beach if the weather cooperates. Unfortunately, it was the rainy season while we were there but it worked out well as we had such a lovely place to stay indoors in. We still managed to visit Mumbles and Rhossili Bay by bus which we took from the bus station (Tip: buy the Go Gower Day Ticket £5.40 which allows you to go all the way to Rhossili Bay and also take the buses to Mumbles. Do not buy the Gower Rider £5.00 which does not allow you to go on the frequent buses from the city to Mumbles). The bus station and city centre is an easy 15 mins walk from the apartment which was very convenient. There's a huge Tesco near the bus station where we got all our groceries. We stayed for 4 nights which passed by too quickly. You won't regret staying here..it's thanks to previous reviewers' comments which helped us decide to stay here. Thanks Anthony for such a memorable stay!

It's very well equipped, comfy beds, spacious living area, lovely large veranda and a luxury to have a bath tub insitu!! Good location for the town and beach. Visited the local RSPB reserve, which was well worth a visit! Although it is situated on a large site, this caravan is located at the 'quiter' and 'more exclusive' part of the park... Perfect if you want a peaceful holiday! Beautiful outlook over the duck pond! Would highly recommend this accommodation, happy holidays!

The cottage is finished to very high standard and is very comfortable and cosy. It has all of the fittings and features you can need. It is VERY well located for visiting all of Cornwall. The only thing that lets it down is no outside space where you can sit and have a quiet read, as the cottage is right on the road, but this is a small price to pay. We would definitely recommend this property and will look to stay there again.
