Self catering apartments can be particularly attractive for couples. Perhaps you would like a bit more space than you get with your average hotel room? If so you may want to find a self catering apartment. The size of self catering apartments can vary though so do make sure that you are happy with the dimensions of the apartment you plan to rent before making any booking. Some apartments are more generous than others. Some have balconies whereas others do not. Particularly when holidaying in a hot country, renting somewhere with outdoor space such as a balcony can be very important. You may also want outdoor seating. Do check ads to ensure that apartments meet your requirements.

Find Self Catering Holiday Apartments

Some apartments may even have roof terraces or roof gardens, but these are somewhat unusual. In cities, apartments usually do not have any kind of garden. Outside cities though, you can sometimes find holiday flats to rent with small gardens. Some gardens will be for your personal use during your stay whereas others will be shared.

If you plan to holiday somewhere hot you may want to find self catering apartments with pools. Self catering with pools can be just wonderful when you want to cool down after a hot and sweaty day of sightseeing. With apartments, swimming pools tend to be shared facilities.

Self catering apartments can be particularly appealing when it comes to city breaks. Having just a bit more space can be helpful when it comes to relaxing after a long journey and very pleasant when it comes to relaxing on holiday.

Most self catering apartments are not serviced i.e. you will be expected to put your own rubbish out and your sheets won't be changed during a weeks stay for example. If you want looking after though, it is possible to find self catering serviced apartments with maid service. Look out for serviced self catering if you want to be looked after on holiday.

Self catering apartments can usually be found in cities and towns.
