Staying in a hotel on your holiday can provide you with friendly staff to deal with your requests and the companionship of other guests. However, there are also potential downsides to contend with such as crowded facilities and unwanted noise. Because of this, many people are choosing to rent private villas from a site like Quality Villas for a more enjoyable holiday experience. Here are 7 reasons why they do so:
Price – One of the main benefits of villas is the great deals you can find for an extended time away, especially during an off-peak season. Villas are generally cheaper to rent as they cost less money for the owners to run. You will probably be paying a weekly or fortnightly rate rather than per day which can also bring the price down.
Food – In respect to your overall costs, you won’t be stuck with extortionate hotel prices for food either. Paying for family meals every day can really dent your overall budget, whereas cooking in the villa with food bought from home or the local supermarket will be much cheaper.
Privacy – Whereas some people may enjoy the company of the fellow guests in a hotel, others may simply want a peaceful, relaxing and isolated time away. A villa provides privacy for you to relax in where you can sunbathe and swim without that sense you are being watched.
Security – The private nature of villas also means that your security will be enhanced. With less people around the chances of an item ‘being lost’ is reduced. Modern villas can be equipped with efficient security systems also which provides further peace of mind. It is still advisable to make sure that all doors and windows are locked at all times however.
Location – Villas are often situated in areas with useful local facilities nearby to add to their appeal. Shops, restaurants, bars and tourist hotspots are often located a short walk or drive from many villas to provide you with the most enjoyable holiday experience possible. The French countryside for example is full of villas.
Family Friendly – If you’re holidaying with children, choosing a villa makes a lot of sense. Booking one room in a hotel for you all to squeeze into can be difficult at times, whilst staying in separate rooms also has its worries. A villa will give you individual rooms in the same building with separate bathrooms and more personal space.
Young Children – If you plan to take babies or infants away with you, a villa can provide you with all the provisions needed to adequately take care of them. Although these can be requested in a decent hotel, the extra hassle and cost can be frustrating. In a villa, you can be supplied with highchairs, cots, safety gates and even children’s toys to make life that little bit easier.
When it comes to booking your holiday accommodation, take into account the benefits a villa can provide, especially for larger groups or families. With added privacy, security and freedom than staying in a hotel you may wrongly believe a villa will thus be more expensive. This isn’t necessarily the case however and some great weekly deals can be found online.
