City flat

Beautiful two-bedroom city flat five minutes' walk from the cathedral. Fully equipped kitchen, living room with a large sofa and chairs, big TV and balcony. The balcony has space for four people to sit and gets the sun in the mornings, and the flat is light and warm. It has Wi-Fi and fast internet. The upstairs bedroom sleeps four people, with two double beds; the downstairs bedroom sleeps two in single beds. The flat is perfect for families and is near shops, bars and restaurants.

Farmhouse

Four-bedroom farmhouse in the countryside. All of the four double bedrooms are en suite with luxury shower and bath. Farm kitchen with barbecue, tables and chairs outside. Great for groups of friends. The supermarket is half an hour by car and you can take a train from the village into the city. Escape from normal life for a few days as we have … NO INTERNET and you can only use mobile phones at the bottom of the garden!

I prefer the farmhouse, because I like staying near the nature.

I choose a flat city for my holiday.

I prefer farmhouse, because it's quiet place and yes i live in the city.

I prefer bouth, maybe farmhouse in summer and the flat in autmn or winter when is the Christmas time.

I don't like living in city. So in a holiday i would choose a farmhouse away from noise and crowding

i would love to chose farmhouse, because in countryside you really can rest and enjoy the holidays. There are fresh air, healthy food, nature, cerenty away from crowd and traffic and you can stay at the garden and have barbeque.

Hello, I think these both places has their individual features. If you own them all you can spend sometime in the flat then in the farmplaces. Are you agree with me?

Actually I prefer to spend my holidays in the countryside rather than the city, because there in the countryside the life is quiet and I can not find traffic or crowds ,the air is fresh an healthy,the best thing I love there is the sunset time ,I really enjoy there.But as the countryside is my favourite place there are some things bother me such as the weakness of the internet and the absence of some services I may need it daily like supermarkets,hospitals and education centers

I know new people now that I travel to Malta and I am studying English

I would choose a place on the beach, or a place in the mountains, away from the city and noise
