Hello! Not sure how to go about so I thought this nice community would be my last chance to get some help.

I am looking for a studio/flat to rent over Christmas in Shad Thames. We live in The Circle (1 bed) and due to personal problems this year we have to spend Christmas at home in the Circle. My mom (lovely 65 years old lady) is alone for Christmas in France (I am French) so I would love to pay her a return ticket so we ca spend Christmas together in London. As you know, hotels around are crazy expensive and same for holiday rentals like the former Think Apartments so we simply cannot afford (we have no space at all in the flat either..). So, in fact, I wonder if anyone knows about affordable flats to rent in the area but ideally, I am looking for neighbors going away for Christmas that would be ready to meet me and make a plan together so we can make this happen :))

I know it is a lot to ask for but I know that if it was the other way around, I would feel happy to help (like we all do in smaller towns..)

Many thanks!

Kindest regards

Hi Paul, well we don't have set up dates as we will only be able to decide about if I find something, but ideally the week of Christmas (I am very flexible). Many thanks :)

Hi Cristina,

I'm not in the Circle but about 5 minutes away.
My plans aren't finalized at the moment, and this is purely speculative right now but where in France does your mum live?
Might consider a house swap for a week?

We are in Bermondsey Wall West and away for Christmas - is that too far?

Thank you very much for your responses, I have received great and useful help from this forum and I couldn't be more grateful.. I have actually found a lovely neighbor who is going to help me with the rental (thanks SE1 !!). Many thanks to all that offered help :)
I wish you a beautiful end of the week and a lovely Christmas time!
Kind regards,
