Self-catering accommodation is described as any accommodation where guests take care of their own meals and other needs, such as laundry.
And it’s becoming the most popular kind of accommodation to stay in while on vacation. Mostly because it’s the economical choice especially if you have children to feed, as we all know all too well how expensive things are these days. And speaking of children a self-catering holiday accommodation is the most convenient option not only for the parents, but also for the kids who gain a sense of home routine whilst away on vacation.
You can still cook the meals they love and need, and also because you’re in your own space the rules aren’t as rigid then if you were staying in a hotel with other guests. Therefore it’s a win, win situation for everyone, which will ultimately make for a little more relaxed vacation.
