Leave The Crowds Behind This Summer
Escape the crowds this summer and do as the rich and famous do…rent your own luxury villa. It’s your holiday so why share it with every other holidaymaker in the resort. Exclusivity is where it’s at.
We all love staying in plush hotels and having our every need and whim catered for but now and again, we all crave our home comforts and just a little bit more privacy on our precious holidays. There’s been many times I’ve gone out to put my beach towel on a sun lounger by the hotel pool only to be greeted by folk from my neighbourhood or a work colleague. Bang goes the sunbathing!
Additionally, what are the options when you are travelling with the kids and you all need your own space? Do you ever wonder how you can maintain a feeding or napping routine when you are at the mercy of a hotel’s dining schedule? We have found the ideal solution to keeping even the fussiest family members happy. talkholiday has some fabulous luxury villas available through their travel partners and you will be spoilt for choice not only in the range of destinations available but the selection of properties on offer.
A villa holiday really is home from home …but with better weather and a private pool! The absolute joy of waking up to warm sunshine streaming in through your window and not having to rush to get dressed so that you don’t miss breakfast. That’s one drawback I am always aware of…my morning being dictated by a restaurant’s opening hours. In your own villa, you can simply rise and shine at whatever time you like and perhaps take a refreshing dip in your private pool before you’ve even put the kettle on. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Villa holidays offer so much freedom. Dine out or eat in – whatever takes your fancy…just enjoy being spontaneous. Breakfast on the terrace, ice creams by the pool, chilled glass of wine in hand and perhaps a barbecue lunch?
Travelling with kids? Don’t you just crave some space for everyone? That’s another bonus when staying in a villa. It’s your holiday too, so what could be better than having a nice living area all to yourself once the kids are in bed? Some quality time watching a nice romantic movie with a bottle of wine at the end of a fun filled day. Or, you could be sitting out on your terrace watching a sunset that feels like your very own evening light show. That, you cannot have when all of you are cramped into one room. As the saying goes, happy kids = happy parents and when everyone is content then your holiday will be off to a flying start.
If you’re new to the villa scene, a good starting point would be James Villas who have over 2500 properties across 50 destinations to choose from. These villas offer comfort and privacy in well appointed accommodation and at surprisingly realistic prices, you won’t need a lottery win to stay in them but you’ll certainly feel like your ship has come in!
This summer, you could be jetting off to one of many idyllic locations but for some of the best of the Mediterranean sunshine and places that will really suit all the family, there are some great villas in Ibiza, Majorca, Menorca but you can choose from properties in all of these sunkissed hotspots:
- Malta & Gozo
