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 a quiet place. We usually go to a Hotel in Cadiz, because is a beautiful place, where you can find relax, you can practice sport, you can go to the beach .... everything there, is really amazing. The bedroom has everything you need, a comfortable bed, a big bath, a balcony with a table and chairs ... all you need for be happy during your holidays.

I prefer to go on holiday to a place that doesn't have many people, good accommodation and services, and warm weather.

I prefer the countryside because it's a calm place. there we feel the peace of mind and soul, we smell fresh and clear air. and the green view there is amazing. I live in a city, but in summer we love to take break from the noise and go to rural areas where we can enjoy and have time to think & work effectively as well.

As a person living and working in a city, I would love to spend my holidays in the countryside. yes, it is time to escape from hectic and busy life and get close to the nature. Well, for me nature heal. Go spending your time at the beach while barbecuing,picnic. Go see a spectacular view of the nature and go get fresh air is all I want!

I love the second one.I would like to take a break from my normal life and don't want to spend too much time on social medias and just want to talk here and there to my friends in person.I bet that would be fun and great way to relax our body and mind.
