Vacation rentals in Luxembourg
The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, with its capital of the same name, offers numerous possibilities nationwide to find a vacation rental adapted to your needs. A holiday apartment in the city allows you to reach the stately gardens and palaces in just a few minutes walk. If you prefer to discover the natural landscape with its rolling hills, wooded mountains and deep river valleys, then rent an apartment in the north of the country.Enjoy luxury equipment in your holiday home
There are vacation rentals not only in the country, but also in the outskirts of Luxembourg City. Here there are a few real, extremely generously furnished luxury homes, such as a converted barn or villas from the 19th century. The family-friendly accommodations often have a garden or terrace with barbecue. Most accommodation providers allow a dog to be taken into the holiday home, so that nothing stands in the way of a holiday with the four-legged friend.
