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'd choose a farmhouse for holidays because I like barbecue and the nature.

If I were to choose 1 of em', I'd choose the farmhouse for a Holiday. Why? Because, Everything there is fresh and It can even reduce your stress. But, As there are advantages of your choice, There could be disadvantages, too.

I would choose the country house because I never lived in the country and I think it would be fun

I would choose the farmhouse, because I like to be on the countryside and I like my family prepare a barbacue outside.
