Bright, modern and boasting a hotel-like finish, this elegant apartment by the River Itchen in Southampton is an ideal base from which to explore the city. Wood floors and a neutral palette set a calming tone in the sociable open-plan living room, with a comfy sectional sofa begging to be relaxed in as the sunlight pours through the large windows. You also have a private balcony here, ideal for starting the day with coffee in the fresh air, as well as a desk to help you catch up on work. The kitchen area, meanwhile, is sleek and inviting with a glass dining table ready to host hearty breakfasts ahead of a day of exploring and intimate dinners soundtracked by the river outside.
