Short term 1 or 2 weeks or the whole of the 6 week summer holidays, or long winter let’s.

If you are for example in a city say Malaga, or Mahon or Ciutadella, demand may be high for a short weekend breaks. This may be particularly attractive to potential guests if transfer times are short to the international airport and are easily accessible either by road or public transport.

Consider how many weeks you intend to use the apartment/villa?

What time of year or season do you wish to use it?

Is it suitable for short breaks or more suited for longer rental periods?

If you have a large number of weeks where it will be vacant, perhaps a few rentals can offset any annual running costs.
