To celebrate the upcoming release of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, HomeAway are running an amazing competition to win a holiday for you and 20 guests to Duns Castle. Plus, five runners-up could win a HomeAway® holiday. I have already mentally prepared my invite list!

If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen that I have just got back from a brilliant weekend in Lisbon where I stayed in a HomeAway apartment. I went with a couple of girlfriends and had a brilliant time.

Lisbon had been on my wish list as somewhere to go for ages and it didn't disappoint. The people were friendly, the bars and cafes lively, the architecture stunning and the shopping was great too.

We stayed in a beautiful apartment that we rented from HomeAway and it was perfect. It had 2 bedrooms (1 twin, 1 double), 2 bathrooms (with gold taps), a fully equipped kitchen (with a washing and coffee machine - the most important things in a kitchen!), a sitting room (with TV), dining area and loads of storage - all to ourselves.  

The owner was so welcoming and organised - he sorted airport transfers for us, adviced us on places to go and things to see - nothing seemed too much trouble. The apartment was so centrally located and we were able to walk everywhere and were even able to pop back during the day to collect something we forgot. 

I have stayed a few times in HomeAway properties and they have all been great. We have rented a large house in Formentera with my entire my family, an apartment with an amazing roof top in Malta when my son was a baby and a flat in London during London Fashion Week. And we have never had a bad experience.

HomeAway have over 2 million places around the world so if you are looking for a place to stay then make sure you check them out.
