With our Project Happiness well and truly underway at GowithOh, we’re celebrating everything that’s making us smile. So now is a better time than ever to take a look at our happiest apartments throughout Europe. We’re showcasing some of our favourite apartments from Venice, London, Barcelona and Paris to share the love and put you in a good mood!

Festival of Colour in Venice

You can’t help but smile when you see this colourful, hip apartment in the Illa della Giudecca area of Venice. Situated on the ground floor, before you even enter the apartment you’ll notice the sun-baked decking at the front, which is absolutely perfect for enjoying the glorious Venetian sunshine. Upon entry, you’ll be met by a bold living area with chic red chairs, ocean blue sofa, and matching furnishings that really stand out. Looking around the duplex, the walls are adorned with film and pop culture posters to make this rental really feel like a home from home. The living area continues into the bright kitchen and dining area at the back, which uses a morning yellow colour scheme to wake you up as you come down for your breakfast!

Staying Classy in London


There’s no other word for it, this London apartment is the epitome of cool. Sandwiched in between Ravenscourt Park, the Thames and perfectly located for going to concerts at the nearby Hammersmith Apollo, apartments like this are just a little bit special. The large living area is the main attraction of this flat. It’s well-lit and again uses pop culture posters to decorate the chic exposed brick work. This living area has all the mod-cons you could need, with a flat screen Satellite TV, DVD player and stereo system for kicking back and relaxing with friends after a long day in London. In a nice contrast from grand living room, the sloping ceiling of the bedrooms creates a cute and more intimate vibe to help you settle down for a well-earned rest. One’s thing for sure, once you’ve stayed in this luxury London apartment, you’ll never want to leave!

Wake Up with a Smile in Barcelona

Next we’re off to Barcelona for a truly welcoming apartment. What we love about this is the decoration throughout the flat. The walls carry uplifting happy slogans which just make us smile from ear to ear. The attention to detail is impeccable and everything has been tastefully chosen to compliment the white and black theme. What’s more, this happy flat also contains a Nespresso machine for that perfect cup of morning coffee to start another fantastic day in Barcelona.

Dreaming of Paris?

There are few places that bring a smile to our face quite like Paris. There’s something about a cute apartment on a quaint Parisian backstreet that just tugs at our heart strings. The thought of waking up with the morning light filtering through the window and heading to the bakery on the corner to pick up freshly baked pastries is close to perfection. Although we have a huge selection of apartments in Paris that fit this dream perfectly, we’ve selected two which we are particularly enjoying at the moment.

Our first choice really appeals to our perfect vision of a Paris getaway. It has everything that we could want, from muted colours, to its aged oak furniture and of course, a little study to enjoy a good book with a glass of wine. The large windows let in a plenty of light which adds to the charm of this truly Parisian home. The area of Montparnasse is a great place to stay as well. This part of Paris lives and breathes music, demonstrated by the array of live jazz clubs close to the apartment, just waiting for you to come and dance the night away

Our second and last featured apartment is a little bit different. It’s a very bright and clean apartment, but our favourite aspect of this flat is that it appeals to the child within all of us. It is a split level apartment with a luxurious double bed on the upper level. This apartment may not be for everyone, but for the young at heart, this is a truly fun place to stay.

Paris is ALWAYS a good idea
