If you're looking for a fun-filled getaway that you and the kids will love, then a family villa holiday might be just what the doctor ordered. Enjoy the ultimate feeling of freedom and flexibility while spending some much needed quality time together. With over 3,000 handpicked properties to choose from, your dream family villa might be closer than you think.
Holidays together are a short but significant part of your lives. Fortunately our family villas let you make the most of each and every moment. Your schedule is yours to set - or not - as the mood takes you. Your plans, your privacy, your pool and your precious moments together are just that - yours.
Piecing together the perfect family holiday means finding a villa that feels like home. Somewhere for you all to recharge, relax and most importantly enjoy quality time together. Whether you're after a beach on your doorstep or rural recreation and outdoor activities, there's plenty of features to keep everyone happy. Our villas cater for all family sizes – from 3 to 20! So if you're planning on holidaying as a large group, you'll easily fit under one roof.
Child friendly villas are fun for parents and little ones alike, teeming with special features that are sure to keep everyone entertained. Games facilities and extra amusements such as table tennis, pool tables and gaming consoles tick all the good time boxes, plus a little healthy sibling rivalry never hurt anyone right?
Swap sunlounger scrabbles and crowded pools for oodles of personal space and the most precious commodity – privacy. There's not much that'll top having your very own swimming pool, and we're sure the kids will agree!
Freedom is the best part of a family villa holiday, and hiring a car keeps it at the centre of your getaway. There's no need to worry about deciphering public transport timetables or how you're going to get from A to B. Car hire brings you closer to the good stuff! Facilities of all kinds are at your fingertips, those hard-to-reach bucket list spots are suddenly a cinch to visit – plus you'll always have a handy base for day trips. Adventure additions like picnic blankets and extra drinks can be stored safely in your boot, leaving your hands free to take more pictures and play with your little ones. After all, no one wants to lug around heavy bags all day!
For parents who spend most of their time ferrying the family around, a week or two without driving might sound a little more relaxing. Treat yourself to airport transfers instead, perfect for families staying at 'car optional' villas. You'll find there's plenty to see and do right on your doorstep, so wheels can be traded in for a leisurely stroll. Transfer times match up seamlessly with your flights, so you'll be arriving at your home from home before you know it.
Picking the perfect destination is paramount to any family villa holiday. Whether you're after winter sun or a summer sizzler, there's no shortage of hot spots to top up your tan year-round. Mountain lovers will marvel at Madeira's wild scenery, while culture vultures can explore Dubrovnik's iconic Old Town. Choose between rural retreats, country hideaways or beachside beauties. Re-live childhood dreams in out-of-this-world Orlando or wander the lunar landscapes of Lanzarote. Will it be breathtaking beaches in the Caribbean or the mellow shores of the Mediterranean?
With over 60 destinations to choose from, you're sure to find the perfect setting for your family villa holiday.
Despite what you might think, family holidays don't have to revolve around the kids. Introducing Holiday Resorts – the proverbial best of both worlds. Here you'll find all the perks of villa living, set in a purpose-built, community-style setting. Think child friendly pools, family-friendly restaurants, adventure playgrounds… and the coveted kids' club!
