Villa holidays are all about flexibility; of taking things at your own pace in a luxurious home-from-home setting. Secluded and tranquil, generally sited well away from the hurly-burly of the resort centres, the self-catering nature of villa package holidays gives you the freedom to come and go as you choose, with no restrictions on meal times. We at Coop Travel have bargain villa holidays in Spain, Cyprus, Greece, Florida, Portugal and many other destinations world-wide.
A villa holiday offers the chance to really get to know the area you’re staying, and ‘go native’ with the locals. Imagine chatting to the locals at a taverna in Corfu, haggling over the price of vegetables at a market in Turkey or exchanging pleasantries with the gardener at your Majorca villa. Last minute villa holidays are the perfect way to learn a foreign language!
Cheap villa holidays cover a large range of options, ranging from traditional farmhouses in rural France, to all-inclusive holiday villages within the shadow of the Florida theme parks. Most villas have pools and many offer the use of a free hire car, especially if the property is ‘off the beaten track’. This gives you endless freedom to explore the local countryside, go sightseeing in neighbouring cities (imagine a villa holiday near Barcelona or Athens!) or buy food from the local markets.
A villa holiday offers you a level of quality you’d be hard pushed to find in a hotel. Private villas are often furnished to a very high level by their owners, some having luxury hot tubs, courtyard gardens, satellite TV and other extras. When booking last minute villa holidays, don’t be surprised to find you have your own private beach, or a gym with a Jacuzzi. We at Coop Travel suggest that, if you’re new to villa package holidays, you choose an all-inclusive resort somewhere like Majorca or the Algarve. The villas are in village-style complexes with sports facilities, restaurants, bars and live entertainment, but with all the privacy and freedom of your own ‘home from home’.
