If the winter weather is getting you down, then looking at holidays for the summer is certainly a good way to cheer yourself up. Wherever you’re thinking of going, one of the biggest decisions that you’ll face after choosing your destination is the type of accommodation that you’re going to be staying in. With most popular holiday destinations offering a selection of hotels, apartments, and villas for tourists to choose from, which is the best one for your needs? We’ve put together a list of reasons why a villa is always the best choice.
When it comes to how much you’re spending on your holiday, a villa can be a much more cost-effective option than any other type of accommodation. When compared to renting a top-notch hotel room, the cost of a villa isn’t always that much more expensive. And, the best part is that since villas are so much larger and tend to have multiple rooms, you can invite more people along with you on your trip and save extra money that way.
#2. More Room:
Put simply, hotel rooms on holiday can be a cramped experience. When you’re confined to just one room with all your belongings, it can be difficult to have a relaxing stay unless you want to venture further outdoors every day, or are lucky enough to be staying directly on the beach. On the other hand, villas in Crete, such as those provided by Blue Villas have much more room and are far more of a ‘home from home’ experience, so even if you want to spend a day or two lounging in your accommodation, you won’t feel like you have missed out.
#3. Added Privacy:
If you booked a stay at a hotel with a pool, then you can guarantee having to share it with other guests. During peak season in the summer, this can often mean crowds of people all around the pool at once, leaving little peace and quiet for you to enjoy. On the other hand, travellers who choose to stay in a villa with a pool can enjoy the peace, tranquillity and privacy of having it all to themselves. Many villas will even offer gyms, games rooms, and other awesome extras for you to enjoy.
#4. Amazing Family Holiday Experience:
If you are thinking of taking your little ones abroad for a family holiday, then a villa is certainly the best option when it comes to picking family-friendly accommodation. Instead of all being cramped into one hotel room, staying in a villa means that you’ll be able to have different rooms, giving the kids some space to relax or play and ensuring that mum and dad get some quiet time and privacy too. Many villas will also offer plenty of child-friendly extras such as cots, high chairs, and even outdoor play areas that your children can have all to themselves. If you have a family pet, you may even be able to bring them along too!
#5. More Quality Time:
Since you can find plenty of large villas housing several people, it’s no surprise that the majority of people who book a villa stay do so in order to enjoy a trip with their friends or relatives. If you’re thinking of going on a big family holiday or perhaps have a large group of friends who all want to spend some time together, a villa is the perfect option. Instead of being confined to separate hotel rooms, you’ll all be able to spend quality time together under one roof whilst still having the privacy and comfort of your own rooms.
