Firstly you should be clear about the kind of property you like and the one that suites your lifestyle. For example if you have a car then a parking space is a must or if you are there for a week then short term letting and a small place will be suitable. You should decide if you want a furnished or unfurnished property? Are you prepared to share the property with someone? Whether you need a garden?

Finding a good property to rent can be a difficult job. You can look through the newspapers but it is time consuming and often not much of a help. Sometimes by the time you find a property it has long since been rented out to someone else. If you are prepared to share a property then you might find friends helpful who are looking for a flatmate. Additionally there are letting agents and property websites. These have a wealth of properties listed for you to choose from.
