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 wouldn't mind going both. I don't used to have such a trip for a holiday, however, I need to go to a one with my family.

we usually stay at the village on vacations. I often choose farmer house which has table outside, private restroom, and especially full equipments.

I live in a large city but my father and my mother were born in a small beautiful village in the countryside. I usually go to this village for the holidays.

I was born in a small countryside near Hanoi city. So, I will choose the flat city for my holiday. My family has five people while the flat city has room for six people. It's wide for my family. The flat city near shops, bars, and restaurants. So, my family can go shopping, go to the restaurants on foot. Moreover, the flat city has Wi-Fi, my family can watch famous movies together on big TV. I think the flat city is suitable for my family on holiday.
