A Euro trip is a dream for all of us, but if you thought that would mean spending on lavish hotels for the perfect stay, then think again. If you haven't thought of going for self catering in Europe then you have no idea what you’re missing out on.

Self catering basically means taking a fully furnished and equipped apartment or cottage on rent for either the week or weekend and cooking your own meals and cleaning up after yourself. Though it may sound like tedious work to do on a vacation but when accompanied by that special someone or even your entire family, the fun in doing so is just endless. Also, not to forget the idea of self catering in Europe can prove to be quite friendly on your pocket!

Some self catering options in Europe are -

Venice, Italy

By far one of the most romantic cities on the planet, it is safe to say that you’re probably in Venice with that special someone and if its so then what you need is a small intimate apartment for your stay here, where you can spend some quality time while being able to access the city for a long stroll or gondola ride with ease. The authentically Venetian Rialto Apartment is the perfect self catering option for you.

Scotland, United Kingdom

Scotland is a land so beautiful that if you haven't explored the countryside then you haven't really done much so getting a cottage amidst the greenery of the land is really the best option especially when travelling with your family. The Lenny Lodge located just outside the main city should be the pick for you, designed to make you feel right at home with the perfect fireplace setting and coziness all around.
