Are you starting to come around to the idea yet?
No? Ok, clearly more convincing is needed.
Do you like your privacy?
Do you want to be able to do what you want to do when you want to it?
Do you want to stay in 5-star accommodation without the 5-star price tag?
Sound too good to be true?
Well, it’s not. These are just some of the many benefits of staying in your own private, luxury villa; keep reading to find out more.
You can save money
Hard to believe but true. With villas available that can accommodate up to 20 people, renting a luxury family villa can be a lot more affordable than you may have previously thought.
In fact, if there are four or more of you staying, then it is almost always cheaper per head than staying in a luxury hotel. What’s more, the more people you invite, the cheaper it gets. Plus, the more relatives or family friends you invite, the more people there are to help look after the kids! It’s a win-win situation.
There are many child-friendly villas available
You may be worried about keeping your little ones entertained without the help of a hotel entertainment team, but you need not. There are many child-friendly villas available in exciting destinations across Europe such as Cyprus, Turkey, France, Italy and good old sunny Spain. Most of which have facilities specifically designed to keep your kids happy; from table tennis, to pool tables, even their own games consoles for afternoons when they have had too much sun. Your children will never be bored on family villa holidays.
You can even find villa holidays that have been created especially for families with babies and toddlers!
You can go for total isolation or book into a family resort
If the thought of being in a secluded villa in a rural setting with two, three or even four of your hard to please children is making you break out in a cold sweat, then why not take advantage of a family resort.
You can still stay in a private villa and enjoy most of the benefits of this type of accommodation, but you will also have access to on-site facilities such as kids clubs and laundry service.
This type of villa holiday is ideal for those who want their privacy and the additional living space that this type of accommodation provides, but who also want to experience some of the perks specifically linked to staying in a hotel.
You can enjoy quality time with your loved ones
Arguably the most important aspect of a family holiday, a villa offers a level of isolation and tranquillity that enables you to spend quality time with your children. Yes, kids clubs can a life-saver when you want a few hours peace, but surely the point of a family holiday is to be able to switch off from the pressures and hecticness of everyday life and have a chance to reconnect with your children?
A villa holiday allows you to spend time with your family without being disrupted and distracted by other guests, ensuring that you can focus on creating long-lasting memories for just you and your family.
