Combine rail travel with a holiday home rental for an eco-friendly, authentic holiday Wednesday 14 November 2007 PDF Print Homes to rent in Eurostar destinations; Brussels, Lille and Paris from Holiday-Rentals.co.uk Following the launch of Eurostar’s new passenger services to Brussels, Lille and Paris it has never been easier to enjoy an eco-friendly and authentic holiday in France by combining travel by rail with a private holiday home rental from www.Holiday-Rentals.co.uk. The UK’s largest holiday home rentals website now lists more than 43,000 properties worldwide, including over 330 properties in Brussels, Paris and Nord-Pas-de-Calais near Lille. By renting a private holiday home, travellers can enjoy the freedom to come and go as they please and a more authentic experience than they would get in a hotel. Think fresh croissants from the local boulangerie in the morning, baguettes and cheese for lunch then perhaps a trip to a local restaurant for le dîner! And now, by travelling out to their home from home with Eurostar, travellers can rest assured that their carbon footprint remains low too. A recent study conducted by Eurostar states that a return flight from Brussels or Paris “produces enough CO² to fill a double Decker bus, while a return rail trip generates only enough CO² to fill a mini”. Plus, by travelling by rail they can reach their destination even quicker as journey times have been cut by up to 25 minutes. Below is a range of properties available in Brussels, Lille and Paris.
