Polish speaking accommodation in Edinburgh - Wojtek in Princes Street

Edinburgh Villa Holiday Rentals not only has a close connection to the USA, but also to Poland and particularly Warsaw. Where Astras partner lived for many years. If you are Polish, visiting Edinburgh, and looking for vacation holiday rental with Polish speaking accommodation in Edinburgh then we can help you out!

Edinburgh recently unveiled the Wojtek war hero statue. Located in Princes Street gardens and with Edinburgh Castle as a backdrop this is quite an impressive statue!

Wojtek the soldier bear!

Just over a half hour drive from Edinburgh we also have the fantastic Polish Map of Scotland. This is the largest terrain map in the world. A highly impressive 3D map of Scotland built in the 1970's. This is located in the grounds of Barony Castle. We recommend anyone staying in Edinburgh with a car (and remember that our Westside Balcony Vacation Rental Apartment has parking!), to try and take a trip out to Eddleston where this map and hotel is located, visit the hotel and it's grounds too, this is one of our favourite spots for a day trip away from Edinburgh! There are many places we also recommend for day trips away where you can use public transport such as Edinburgh Lothian Buses or by train however a car is needed for here!

Late Availability in Edinburgh for Rugby Game

We currently have availability at our Edinburgh Garden Apartment Vacation Rental for the upcoming Murrayfield Rugby Game on 4th February! Unfortunately for this game our other apartments including the Westside Balcony Apartment are booked. The Westside Balcony Apartment is located just a 25 minute walk from Murrayfield Stadium, a pleasant walk through Ravelston and Murrayfield.

On another note - the weather in Edinburgh has been quite nice recently with clear sky and frosty mornings. Cramond is a lovely place to visit with historic buildings and walks along the Firth of Forth. The number 41 Lothian bus from the WestSide Apartment can take you there in 15 minutes!

Quartermile Holiday Apartment and Edinburgh Apartment with Castle Views

Happy New Year from Edinburgh!


 Although we at Edinburgh Villa Holiday Rentals didn't go to the Hogmanay party on Princes Street ourselves, our guests who stay at our Edinburgh Self Catering Apartments had a great time, and as a bonus it didn't rain! The view from our Westside Balcony Apartment was seemingly fantastic when the fireworks were on. I'm sure it was - here's a view on a clear January day from our Westside Apartment. At the moment we have quite a lot of availability for the holidays such as Easter and Summer, and also availability for when the RBS Six Nations Rugby game is on. This apartment is located in the same area as Murrayfield Stadium (West of the City Centre), and you could walk to the Stadium if you liked. The walk would probably be around 25mins to Murrayfield. 2016 was the first year of short term Edinburgh rentals for this apartment and we have received glowing reviews for its comfort and views!

Edinburgh Vacation Rental with Castle Views

If you are specifically looking for accommodation at 'The Quartermile', which has become very popular with repeat guests over the years then visit our 'Quartermile Apartment' page on our website for further information. This Quartermile Holiday Rental again has lovely open views over parkland, is bright, sunny, modern and comfy. Again we do have availability for the peak weeks coming up and this apartment can sleep 4 adults + 1 teen (or younger) on the sofa bed. Visit our Edinburgh Villa website and contact us direct to check availability.

Edinburgh Craigleith Shopping - Gluten Free

If you are gluten free and visiting Edinburgh, you may wish to consider staying at our lovely Westside Balcony Apartment. Apart from the fact its a comfortable and bright vacation rental in Edinburgh, and has a fully equipped kitchen for home cooking, we can also provide you with a gluten free toaster (please ask in advance to arrange this - basically a 2nd toaster that we keep for guests with food allergies)!

Westside Balcony Apartment with fully equipped kitchen and gluten free toaster (ask for details!)

This Edinburgh holiday rental apartment is particularly useful for Coeliacs visiting Edinburgh as its across the road from many stores that have a reasonable range of gluten free food. There's a M&S foodhall which has its gluten free food scattered through the store (look for items in green packaging). A decent fridge range includes such items as gluten free lasagne, gluten free scotch eggs (lovely!), and there is a separate section for items such as bread and biscuits. Many of their sausages are gluten free too however M&S seem to have less than other stores in their freezer section.

The Sainsburys grocery store has a good selection of its gluten free food in one aisle. Look or ask for the 'Free From' section.

Both the above stores are 5 minute walk from our Westside Apartment.

If you fancy delivery then both Dominos and Pizza Hut in Edinburgh now offer Gluten Free Pizzas, both are very good. Order easily online for delivery. If you are staying at one of our Edinburgh Apartments and require further information on Gluten free eating in Edinburgh then feel free to ask.
