Contemporary One Bed Apartment in Edinburgh, Great Britain - perfect for couples!

 
Dear Members

We live in a very contemporary one bedroom garden apartment which is suitable for couples rather than families. The flat is two minutes from Princes St: the airport tram stops beside us and the town buses are there too. However you can walk everywhere because Edinburgh is a very compact place.

Edinburgh has been voted  'the Best City in the UK' by the British public for 10 consecutive years. It is perfectly formed!

There are many art galleries, open green spaces, museums, cinemas, wonderful architecture and restaurants and enjoys a calm relaxed atmosphere.
You can walk around easily, though public transport is superb, and reach the Old Town and the New Town easily in a day - the difference in age and archictecture is stunning.  Edinburgh Castle stands high above Princes Street, the main thoroughfare, and leads down the cobbled Royal Mile to the Palace of Holyrood and the Scottish Parliament, the old and the new buildings a stunning contrast.
You have the sea nearby and lovely coastal villages. You have mountains to the south for lovely walks.
There are golf courses all around. You can find most sporting facilities here - please ask and we'll find out for you if your particular sport or interest is available in Edinburgh.
Edinburgh is also a good base for touring: the scenery can be awesome and rugged. We have just returned from visiting the north west of Scotland which surprised even me! Single track roads with passing places, mountain ranges galore at over 900 metres high, lochs amidst mountains, four seasons in one day weather and wonderful food to boot! Our main roads are excellent - it's only in the extreme north and northwest that you find these roads with passing places.

We live in a very contemporary one bedroom garden flat two minutes from Princes St: the airport tram stops beside us and the town buses are there too. However you can walk everywhere because Edinburgh is a very compact place.

We have also a second home in central, rural France which we can exchange too. You can view the cottage here : https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/VacationRentalReview-g580139-d1951225-La_Maison_Tranquille-Sancerre_Cher_Berry_Centre_Val_de_Loire.html

Circa la nostra famiglia

We are a couple, recently retired, who enjoy very much our home. Our love of the arts makes Edinburgh city life a much enjoyed base and yet we love also the tranquility and peacefulness of life in rural France too, where our second home is found.
Our home is used to entertain our friends: we love cooking and socializing. We can eat in the garden when the sun is shining. And certainly have our apero there.
Our home is a tranquil haven, painted in soft tones and made to be comfortable and enjoyed.
