Is he your landlord? If not just tell him you’re planning on staying. If he’s the landlord you need to understand the contractual obligations. Clearly he doesn’t feel it’s working out as well as you do as flat companions, but this is tuff if you’re happy.
If yes, calmly tell him that you don't plan to move out of the flat or visit family during the holidays.
Then politely let him know that you will be happy to replace him with a new flatmate if he wants to leave before the tenancy ends and move into his own private accomodation or live with his friends.
