    Our holiday home in Edinburgh is a bright centrally located one-bedroom mews house with views to Edinburgh Castle. Situated in a quiet lane beside the historic Grassmarket, one of the most famous quarters of the Old Town in the centre of Scotland's beautiful capital city, the apartment is within easy walking distance of the major tourist attractions, University, Festival venues, shops, night life and transport connections. The apartment sleeps two people in a bedroom with king-size double bed and can comfortably sleep another two guests on request on a double sofa bed in the living room. All linen and towels are included in the price. The apartment is an ideal base for a short city break in Edinburgh or for a longer holiday if you want to explore further afield.

    The house is situated on King's Stables Lane, a few metres from the Grassmarket, in the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town. (The name of the street recalls that this is where the royal stables attached to the castle were situated.) It's a short walk through the Grassmarket to the Royal Mile, the backbone of medieval Edinburgh, which connects Edinburgh Castle at one end with the Palace of Holyroodhouse and the new Parliament at the other. Edinburgh's main visitor attractions are on your doorstep and the neighbourhood is full of attractive independent shops and restaurants, bars and cafes to suit all budgets, from cheap and cheerful pizzerias to fine dining establishments. The Hub (the official centre for the Edinburgh International Festival) and the Festival Fringe office are on the Royal Mile, and you can easily walk to many Festival venues; the Usher Hall, Royal Lyceum Theatre, Traverse Theatre, Filmhouse and Dance Base are all only a few minutes' walk away. You are also ideally placed to enjoy the Christmas and Hogmanay/New Year festivities.

    The house is light and airy and has views to Edinburgh Castle. There is a living room with dining area, a kitchen, a double bedroom and a shower-room. The door opens on to a sunny shared courtyard; where better to enjoy a relaxing drink after a hard day's sightseeing?

    With windows to the front and back, the spacious living room is full of light. There is a comfortable dining area for those occasions when you forego the attractions of Edinburgh's exciting restaurant scene. The three-seater sofa converts in to a double sofa bed, and a comfortable armchair, attractive rugs, a TV/DVD and a wee library of books and DVDs complete the home comforts.

    The modern kitchen is well provided with crockery, cutlery, glasses and kitchenware, as well as a washing machine, fridge-freezer, cooker and microwave.

    A spiral staircase from the dining area leads down to the bedroom and shower-room. The double bedroom is fully carpeted and attractively furnished. The shower-room has a standard-size power shower (no bathtub), wash-hand basin and toilet.

    The apartment has gas central heating. The price of gas and electricity and use of linen and towels is included. For the comfort of future guests, the apartment is non-smoking and pets are not allowed. Spanish, German and Russian spoken.
