Vacation Apartment Hack: How to Feel at Home in Someone Else’s

on Tue, 02/23/2016 - 15:49

When opting to vacation in an apartment instead of a hotel there are many advantages. Firstly, it makes it easier to immerse in the culture if you’re not returning to a sea of other tourists every evening to a large, corporate-feeling hotel. Secondly, nothing can replace the warmth and welcoming environment an apartment can have over a single room with cups covered in plastic bags. Thirdly, you’ll probably get more space for your money since you’re renting a home over one room. Renting an apartment through Untours over a hotel is a no-brainer, but how to do make someone else’s home feel like your own? Especially if you’re staying in that apartment for a week or more, it is important to settle in and make it your own.

Raymond Heald, Untours

1. Tell us a little bit about your most recent Untour.

It was a dream vacation: 8 days on the Variety Voyager, the sleek 73-passenger yacht that put us ashore at the fabled ports of Capri, Lipari, Malta, plus 4 ports in Sicily. Then, a train ride to the sparkling Cinque Terre for 4 nights and a heavenly 2 weeks in the fabulous Bonalumi apartment in Locarno, with a breathtaking view of Lake Maggiore.
