Check the Pique online and you can normally find some short term accommodation for a month or two. Alternatively just look for a share house (I'm in one at the moment) pretty simple you pay 1 months rent at a time which will normally include internet, cable, heating etc etc you get your room and a spot in the fridge.
Thanks Mitch. Think we have identified a house share that might suit - reasonable price, with wifi, cable, heating etc covered, close to gondola etc. In Creekside. Are you in Creekside or the main town? Is Creekside a good choice for a medium term stay?
