Why not try a villa holiday?

Think a villa holiday can’t possibly match up to a hotel? Think again!

We know that once customers experience a CV Villas holiday they come back year after year, enjoying our beautiful destinations, personal service and the freedom that a villa holiday offers. But if you’ve yet to take the plunge, it can be daunting making the switch from your usual hotel to your own home away from home. Here we address some of the concerns that arise when booking a villa holiday for the first time.

Self-catering is no fun on holiday…

Yes, it can seem simple to base yourself in a hotel, perhaps on an all-inclusive basis, especially if you have children in tow. But in reality children are often fussy eaters, hotel buffets can be unappetising, and dining times can be inflexible. Our villa kitchens are well-equipped with all the mod-cons to make cooking a pleasure, and it’s a great opportunity to experiment with local ingredients that may not be readily available at home.

But if the thought of cooking on holiday truly does fill you with horror, we have a wide
range of villas both close to a good selection of restaurants and with cook service either
included or as an optional extra. Browse our villas with cook service included here.

Villa holidays require a car…

Although we recommend car hire with our villa holidays so that you can enjoy complete freedom and make the most of the surrounding area, we have a wide range of villas where a car isn’t a necessity.

If you’d rather not drive while on holiday then our Travel Experts can help you choose a villa that is within walking distance of all the amenities you’ll need. Browse our villas within walking distance of amenities here.

Villa holidays are boring for children…

Almost all our villas boast their own private swimming pools, which in our experience is more than enough to keep kids entertained all day once you throw a few inflatables into the mix.

However, if you want to make sure there’ll be no complaints from the children, we offer a range of villas on resorts offering plenty to keep the younger ones entertained, from kids’ clubs to tennis lessons. Browse our resort villas here.

Villas are away from all the action…

If you’re looking for peace and quiet, a villa holiday can offer the perfect answer, and we have plenty of properties in beautifully secluded countryside locations.

But we also have villas within walking distance of Dubrovnik, within easy reach of Ibiza’s best clubs, close to quaint seaside villages and resort villas with plenty of activities on hand.

Villas are only for big groups…

This is possibly the biggest misconception about villa holidays – that they’re only affordable if you’re a big group of friends or more than one family travelling together.

In fact, villas come in all shapes and sizes, from romantic boltholes for two, houses perfect for families of varying sizes looking for a week in the sun, all the way up to palatial villas and collections of properties sleeping upwards of 20 people and perfect for special occasions.
