Choosing Your Villa

This will largely depend on who you’re traveling with and your unique needs. Perhaps you’re traveling with kids, or a larger group of friends and family, or maybe it’s just you and your partner — each type of traveler with come with their own needs and expectations and it’s important your villa can meet these needs. Opting for a smaller home with little child-friendly considerations will prove challenging if you’re trying to keep the little ones entertained!

Consider the amenities and the layout of the property — are there sufficient communal spaces for relaxing together? Is there an adequate dining area for enjoying meals together, or alternatively, does the property offer spaces that are too big for your group? Nothing kills romance like dining at opposite ends of a table suited for 10! Be sure to read descriptions and reviews thoroughly to determine whether the rental is going to be the best choice for your entire group — this is key!
