Ever wondered what a villa holiday would be like compared to your normal holiday in a hotel in one of the hundreds of busy resorts throughout the Mediterranean? One of the most popular destinations for this type of holiday is the island of Mallorca in the Balearic Islands.
Probably the first thing that comes to mind is the fact that you will be totally independent. You can select a villa for just the 2 of you, or a villa that will be suitable for a large group. Take it easy and take advantage of the fact that you do not have to be up and ready for breakfast to coincide with the opening times of the hotel dining, or breakfast room. You can have breakfast at whatever time suits you.
You can also relax in the knowledge that if you lie in and take a late breakfast, the sun loungers around your private pool will still be available, and you can even move them to a shady spot on your terrace. If you are not particularly bothered about a swimming pool, then you can select a villa with just a private garden.
The majority of villas come with a BBQ [ranging from a small poolside BBQ to a large area complete with preparation area and small kitchen]. This enables you to break away from the pool for lunch or dinner to be taken around your patio furniture. However, if you prefer to eat out, you can choose a villa where there’s a variety of restaurants available in the vicinity.
One factor to consider is where you would prefer your villa. Would you prefer to be near to a resort or town where you can go during the evening, or a rural villa where you can explore the countryside, or even a villa near to a beach.
In summary, when you choose a villa holiday, you are deciding you want a break that gives you freedom to come and go as you please with the independence to be able to eat when you wish without the constraints a hotel places on you.
