Stay a While
Europe is a wonderful choice for a holiday, so many beautiful countries to visit and cultures to experience. Flights from Australia to Europe can be expensive and long, so it is tempting to see and experience as much as possible while there.
However the way we travel is starting to change, travellers are becoming more interested in immersing themselves in culture and feeling like a local rather than ticking a ‘must see list’. Accommodation options in Europe and the UK are changing to accommodate this cultural trend.
When you choose to stay a little longer, there is time to explore all the wonders of your destination without rushing between sites. Explore the areas off the tourist track, find the restaurants known only to the locals. Take the time to relax in a park, observing the daily life in a different country.
Apartments are great for longer stays, as you will have laundry facilities, a kitchen to prepare meals, central locations and you will be living with the locals.
Rent an apartment in the middle of Paris, there are some beautiful authentic options from Studio to 4 bedroom apartments. You can stay in St Germain, I’ll St Louis, Le Marais, around the Louvre, Eiffel Tower or Champs-Elysées. Spend your days walking the gardens, visiting museums, stroll along the Seine, relax with a coffee in a beautiful old coffee house or join a local food tour.
Italy offers some amazing villas for couples or larger groups. Base yourself at a beautiful Villa and spend your days exploring the local towns and countryside. Walk the country lanes, shop at the local market, and discover food authentic to the region.
There are also many options in the UK, France, Greece, Italy, Spain, Morocco and more; from apartments for two or stately homes for lager groups.
Consider staying a little longer the next time you visit Europe, you will be glad that you did.
