Why choose a private holiday villa?
Choosing to rent a private villa rather than a hotel room (or two, or three) is a far better money-saving option. Most of the times, renting an entire villa works out to cheaper to one hotel room.
Our holiday villas are all individually located, all have their private gardens, private pool, private hot tub. This means that the only people you have to share your villa with, are the people you choose to share your holidays with. Whether that’s your spouse and kids, your parents, your friends, or anybody else YOU choose to go on holidays with!
Last, but not least, you have all the privacy in the world! Want to swim at 12am, there’s nobody there to stop you. Want to have a private barbecue in your private garden? You can do so every single night of your holiday.
Want to go out? Great! You’ll find a booklet in your house with information tips.
On the next day after your arrival our representative will come to meet and greet you and aslo she can advise you what’s on in your area.
Contact us for more info! We are happy to help and solve any questions or concerns.
