Edinburgh Holiday decorations at Edinburgh Villa Holiday Rentals

Edinburgh Villa Christmas Tree

We've decorated our Edinburgh city centre holiday house with a Christmas tree in the living room and the dining room fireplace has been decorated too, all ready for our Christmas and New year holiday guests. It'll be January 2014 before we know it! Special Edinburgh rates for January reservations at our Edinburgh accommodations. January is also the busiest month for enquiries, we probably receive 4x the number of enquiries and bookings in that month for the year ahead so if there's particular holiday dates you are interested you'll need to be quite quick! Summer months are starting to book up already, as well as the peak winter weekends for the 6 Nations Rugby games at Murrayfield in Edinburgh. It's never a quiet moment here at Edinburgh Villa Holiday Rentals as we book out year round with high occupancy and many repeat guests.

Weather in Edinburgh in December?

Today and for most of this week it appears we are going to have extremely mild temperatures in Edinburgh, up to 15 degrees C on Thursday, that's nearly 60F for all our Fahrenheit readers (and being that over 60% of our guests are travelling over from America there will be a lot of Fahrenheit' readers). Rather uncommon temperatures for December in Edinburgh, we will make the most of it though. I see that the east coast of the USA is getting hit hard by a snowstorm, and it always appears that the weather front travels over the sea and hits the UK about a week later, so perhaps we will have snow this time next week?

We always advise to bring layers of clothing to Scotland, and this is for all seasons. As temperatures and weather patterns can change hour by hour. December is no different. It always feels a little nicer and festive walking around the German markets on Edinburghs Princes Street with a cup of warm mulled cider or wine in the snow, but you cant go wrong with this weeks temperatures. It's the rain I dont like when Christmas shopping but the forecast looks good with bright clear weather. So why not have a last minute visit to Edinburgh before Christmas?

It's Christmas tree putting up time for our Edinburgh Holiday Rentals ! We will be busy putting a tree up in our Edinburgh 4 bedroom rental living room bay window and in the bay window of our Bruntsfield 3 bedroom holiday apartment

Pictures to follow once we have the trees up and decorated. The Villas dining room fireplace also get nicely decorated for Christmas as we know the dining room is well used over the Holidays.

Edinburghs Christmas is worth travelling to Edinburgh for!

Edinburgh Christmas Markets and the first snowfall

We had our first snowflakes yesterday in Edinburgh. This was the sky just after the stormy weather front had left our region.

Places to stay in Edinburgh for December

Yet again we've had guests who are staying at our Edinburgh Quartermile Apartment tell us that the photos dont do it justice, the apartment is much bigger than the photos show on our Edinburgh holiday rentals website. We plan on taking new photos of our Quartermile Holiday Rental in a few weeks. All our Edinburgh holidays rentals are now booked for the Christmas and New Year holidays, however we do have some super prices for January visitors to Edinburgh and if you happen to be lucky enough to be in Edinburgh when it snows then both the Quartermile Apartment and the Victorian Apartment have fantastic views of snow covered hills and streets. The Quartermile and the Victorian are only a 15 minute walk away from each other, and between the 2 properties is this fabulous city centre park.

These photos were taken back in 2011. If you stay at our 4 bedroom holiday house in Edinburgh then you'll be able to make snowmen in the garden!
