Doorways, Ltd., has been renting vacation villas and apartments in Europe since 1994, when president and founder Kit Burns launched the company's Italian division from the living room of her Bryn Mawr home. Since that day, Doorways has expanded its services to include rentals in France, Spain and a few top villas in London and the Caribbean as well. Our staff, too, has grown — and we have moved to a more spacious office— just down the street from the original. But Doorways' most essential and definitive characteristic remains unchanged: our staff is still committed to offering a uniquely personal touch in helping you plan your ideal independent travel vacation. We are proud of this commitment to first-rate personal service and believe it sets us apart, among rental agents.
Doorways caters first and foremost to travelers who are thrilled by the prospect of "living as the locals do" in a delightful European locale — enjoying the novelties of a foreign climate and culture while making independent choices on a day-to-day basis about where to go and what to see or do. This is the essence of the "independent travel" tradition, also referred to as the "self-catering" vacation. (For travelers seeking full-service accommodations, including housekeeping and chef services, Doorways offers a number of very special serviced properties; please inform us of this preference when you first contact us.) Years of experience have shown us that the most precious service anyone can offer the independent traveler is information — information about every aspect of the travel and rental experience, including the minute details of what to expect at the villa, the train station, the museum, or car rental office. We also tell you what to look forward to: the breathtaking botanical garden, tucked away and overlooked behind a crumbling wall, or that amazing gelato shop just around the corner.
We're BACK with another scintillating Holtecast. Coming fresh off of two wins over West Bromwich Albion, Aston Villa will be looking to put even more distance between themselves and the relegation fight this weekend. The trip to Sunderland comes as seemingly the entire defense is injured or dying, but improved performances in the past few matches are giving us a little bit of hope.
Before we get to that, though, Jack and I look back at Saturday's glorious, amazing, wonderful, FA Cup quarter-final victory over the Baggies. Was this what we can expect going forward? Which goal was the best? How terrible and horrifying were the crowds rushing the field? What will happen when civilization falls thanks to those same mobs?
We answer all of those, your questions, and more.
Jack and Robert are back and we swear that we won't make any predictions. Three matches without a prediction, and three wins for Aston Villa. The latest was last weekend's 0-4 drubbing of Sunderland at the Stadium of Light that led to Gus Poyet getting fired. Nice to be on the other side of that for once.
We'll take a look at the relegation race as it stands after the weekend. With their win, Villa look much better, but Burnleytook a surprising 1-0 against Manchester City and made safety a bit harder to achieve. Jerks. We'll also be taking your questions from Twitter and Facebook.
And of course we'll glance ahead at this weekend's match against Swansea. The last before a two-week international break. Can Villa keep up their winning ways?

Todays show we will talk about how the benefits of vacations, date nights, staycations, and taking time for self.

So here's a novel idea: we're podcasting after an Aston Villa win. Yes, that's right. And what's more, it's a win in the Premier League. We haven't gotten to do a podcast like that in nearly three months, so you can imagine how excited we are.
We begin, of course, by recounting the thrilling win over West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday. There is no shortage of gloating over the win, and especially the gut-punching manner in which it happened. After that we take on all sorts of Aston Villa news: the return of Stiliyan Petrov, the defensive injury crisis, and more.
And how can we leave you except by looking ahead to Saturday's FA Cup quarter final clash against the Baggies?
Jack and Robert return for another Holtecast. And we've got our third manager in three episode. First Paul Lambert, then the double-headed beast that was Scott/Andy Marshall, and finally we're onto Tim Sherwood. We take a look at whether or not Tactics Tim is a good fit at Villa Park.
And over the weekend something strange happened: Villa scored two goals and beat a Premier League opponent. Now, it wasn't in the league, but still. That's a win! And it sends the club to the quarterfinals of the FA Cup, one win removed from Wembley.
We've also bumped our recording time from Wednesday mornings to Thursday mornings. If you're sitting on the edge of your seat eagerly awaiting the Holtecast every week (bless you), you'll find it on the feed sometime later on Thursday and here on the site on Friday.
We were going to record at our normal Wednesday morning time this week, but Robert had a scheduling conflict and thank heavens for that. We would have spent half an hour speculating about the news that we can now spend half an hour actually talking about!
After losses to Chelsea and Hull City since last we had an episode, Aston Villa have finally put Paul Lambert out of his misery and sacked him. We take a look at the leading candidates to replace him and what they might do once they get here.
And of course we preview this weekend's rubber match against Leicester City. After splitting the series in the Premier League this season, they head to the FA Cup for a Sunday draw in the fifth round at Villa Park.
Jack and Robert are here to talk about Aston Villa, even if thinking about this club is seemingly more than they deserve right now. Remember the win over AFC Bournemouth in the FA Cup? Well, a 5-0 demolition by Arsenal in London has put an end to the good feelings we had for a hot minute. It was fun while it lasted.
And then the club didn't have anything to offer us on transfer deadline day. But since we've last recorded, Villa did add Scott Sinclair from Manchester City. We'll cover the January window in full and discuss Jack and James' grades for the window.
Jack and Robert are back after an Aston Villa w... wi... win? Is that how you spell it? It's their second in the month of January, but this weekend sees the club try to get back on track in the Premier League, where they haven't won since December 7. Unfortunately, the challenge will be stiff, as Villa travel to the Emirates to take on Arsenal, who currently sit in fifth.
We'll have a recap of the FA Cup victory (with 2 [two!] goals!), and a look at what Villa might do as the transfer windowcloses. We'll also be welcoming on Zito Madu to talk about the Arsenal match. Zito is one of the best football writers around, and he plies his trade on The Short Fuse as well as on SB Nation (where he writes about more than just football).

A fictionsal account of a true story involving someone who emancipated from his flock, family and personal identity. Written by yours truly. It's a hypo-series.
Povery makes people suspicious and the residents of Villa Azul who live in the crossroads of the San Fernando Valley are no different. An influx of Section 8 recipients have invaded the lot, some with life skills and some with life perils. Some of the tenants are jovial comrades while others are plotting Sherlocks, wondering when the schizophrenic onsite manager will uproot their fragile existence next. Aram, a quiet man, who resides in 2B seems to be a steady man with few external interests. When the apple cart of Villa Azul is uncovered, the whole tenancy issue may backfire and no one will survive the wrath of the management and housing authority.
Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest.
Author David Robert joins me this week to talk about his book: Wanderlush.
When David, a self-proclaimed anxiety-ridden introvert, convinces himself he’s dying of cancer, he invites his delightfully unpredictable, -popping, chardonnay-swilling mother on a series of international good-bye vacations. By doing so, he unwittingly opens a Pandora’s Box of hilarious and humiliating events that will test just how far they are willing to go to get a laugh.
David knows the trips will be anything but boring because he and his mom have been causing a scene for as long as he can remember. He describes her as a cross between Bea Arthur and Karen Walker from Will and Grace, and she is notorious for bending the rules.
But nothing can prepare him for escapades that include digging his mom out of a rain gutter in Costa Rica and being dragged across the Arabian Desert by a psychotic camel named Forrest Hump. As the vacations unfold, David discovers that although he and his mom are having the time of their life, she is ready to share a secret that will change everything.
