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!

Which place would you choose for a holiday?
No matter where I choose for a holiday, it will be fun if I am with my bf.
We have loved for 2 years and have travelled many places, but I love 2 places following: Da Lat city - a beautiful city with cool weather and many flowers, Thuy Chau ecotourism park where we camped, had lunch and spring bath. The next holiday in August, we are going to visit Da Nang city. This is the first time I fly to go there. I'm so excited about it!

It depends. Sometimes I like countryside and sometimes I really like to visit new cities.

I’d choose the flat because it’s in the city and there’re a lot of convenient things more than countryside. And can go anyplace easier than countryside
