A holiday is an important calendar fixture for most of us. We work hard all year sometimes for that one escape abroad so you have to make the right choices. Many people will stick with what they know or perhaps book the same thing year in and year out. Some may not deviate away from a hotel package deal. Maybe they think villa holidays aren’t for them. But I am here to explain that you shouldn’t assume a villa holiday isn’t right for you and here is why.
It can be perfect for anyone
In the past hiring a villa might have been seen as an expensive choice, something you needed to have a lot of money for. It’s not like that though and anyone can hire a wonderful villa these days for a reasonable price. You don’t even have to want a private holiday because many villas are right where all the action is. It can be a suitable choice for a couple or a family, offering you a home-from-home experience.
You can go anywhere
There is a huge supply of holiday villas all over the world so you are not limited to where you can go. You could choose from villas in Italy to living the American dream in Florida. There will be somewhere offering you a villa to suit.
Do your research
You still need to do your research when it comes to a villa holiday. Much like when you’re booking in a hotel. It’s a great idea to do some research. It’s good to read other people’s opinions on the villa, location, and amenities. While one villa might be right for you, another may not.
Weigh up the pros and cons
It’s a good idea to work out the type of holiday you want. A villa, although can be luxurious, doesn’t offer the stunning buffets and staff waiting on you hand and foot but it can offer you privacy, your own pool and space, and a more relaxed vibe. The main benefit would be that in a villa you make your own rules. If your children want to have a swim at 7 am, they can do it. The same goes for eating at certain times. Hotels may have eating periods etc. It’s best to make sure the villa suits the holiday you want.
Family and friends under one roof
One of the main benefits of going to a villa is having your group under one roof. If you’re travelling as a group of friends then you are all together in one place. Just remember to discuss the normal tasks before you go to avoid any conflict whilst you are away.
When you are in the villa, it can give you a sense of security. Often in hotels, you are surrounded by strangers whereas if you are in a villa, it’s just you and your loved ones.
Finally, booking a villa can be extremely cost-effective. Especially for bigger parties. It’s worth comparing, but you will often find that a villa will provide excellent value for money.
I hope this article will provide you with some confidence that a villa holiday could be the perfect choice for your next vacation.
