Why Rent a Holiday Villa?

Your very own villa and private pool

Holidays are just so much better when you're making all the rules – especially when it comes to your private pool. Cannonball to your heart's content, splashing as much you like! Sit on the edge and dip your toes undisturbed, enjoying a little quiet time as you make a few ripples on the surface. And in those early morning dips, you can actually swim like nobody's watching!

There's no limit on the number of inflatables you can bring to the pool either. So you won't have to make that tough call between inflatable unicorn and blow up flamingo – everybody gets to come along. Nobody wants to see a sad unicorn, especially when you're packing for your holiday! You decide the pool opening hours too, so you can swim as early or late as you like. And when you get peckish, there's no worries about losing your sunlounger as you grab a bite to eat. There's no dish worth risking that perfect spot in the sun for! But with your sunloungers always reserved, that's a dilemma you won't be facing.

Sharing your pool is a thing of the past when you rent a holiday villa. But be warned, once you've jumped into that all-to-yourself pool you won't want to go back to sharing.

A villa for every group

Couples getaways, large group celebrations and those in between Big Holidays – there's a villa for every group. If it's just you and your special someone, you'll want your own space, seclusion and somewhere to enjoy each other's company! How about a romantic hideaway off the beaten track? With your villa's kitchen on hand, why not put in a cheeky request for breakfast in bed? Or maybe it's better to simply enjoy a morning coffee, sipping together by the pool - we don't want to cause any holiday dramas.

Sleeping up to 22, our villas are just the ticket for large groups. When you're heading away with lots of loved ones, it's all about creating those treasured memories together. Whether that's grilling up a feast on your barbecue, with everyone pitching in or splashing around in your villa's pool. It might be as simple as sitting together and watching the sunset – these are priceless moments. A villa holiday gives you the space and privacy you need to create these, with your friends and family all under one roof. And if you are in one of those in between groups, you get the best of both worlds!

Home comforts and much more

Make yourself at home might be the kind of polite offer you hear people make, but we really mean it! Your villa is your holiday home from home. So come in, kick off your shoes and spread out on the sofa. Pop the TV on if you like, it's your living room! There's plenty of home comforts waiting behind your villa doors. Whether that's being able to cook your favourite dish or taking your morning cuppa to a tasty new level with a coffee machine. It's these little touches that make you feel at home…

Then there's those stand out features, the villa facilities that really add the 'wow' factor! Feeling a little tense? Slip into a Hot Tub, melt those troubles away in a sauna – we've got villas tailor-made for unwinding! Does sitting still for that long sound like your worst nightmare? There's plenty more ways to work up a sweat! From villas with gym facilities to those with their very own tennis courts, it's time to burn some of that extra energy. Or maybe we can meet in the middle? Pool tables, table tennis and darts are less intense ways of keeping yourself amused. Although that doesn't mean you can't bring your competitive edge. You make the rules, after all.

Locations to suit you

If you're itching to get to the sand from the moment you wake up, our villas by the beach will feel like heaven! You could be strolling to the beach in a matter of minutes.

Buzzing markets, lively towns and chatty locals – it could all be at your door. If you're craving some peace and quiet, it's time to find a private and secluded retreat. Nestled away from the rest of the world, just sit back and drink in the tranquillity. And who doesn't like a great view!? Sea scenery, rolling countryside, towering mountains – you could be enjoying it all in your home from home.

Freedom to Explore

Where we're going, we definitely need roads! It doesn't have the same ring to it as that famous film quote, but what would a holiday be without a little (or a lot of) exploration?
