I make no apologies for my outright LOVE of holidays.
I am the sort of person that just doesn’t function effectively unless I’ve had some sun on my bones, a sun lounger to relax on, late nights, late mornings, no rush to do anything, no hustle and bustle, just please yourselves and keep on doing it.
We have tried almost every kind of travel experience, be it camping, caravaning, B&B’s, self catering and hotels, at both end of the spectrum for quality and value and I have to say without exception, we have found that Villa holidays are just perfect family holidays in every way. Goodness knows I adore my city breaks with my husband, but when it comes to travelling with children I just don’t think you can beat what a Villa holiday gives you
For me the reasoning is simple
Its ultra no hassle,come and go as you please
There is no dressing up for dinner, or breakfast for that matter.
No enduring the children in a hotel dining room, picking at food that they (and frankly you) don’t want and wouldn’t ever choose
No requirement to play sun lounger roulette.. will you wont you get one today?.. will it be in the full sun or shade?
Free and easy access to your kind of food and drink when you want it (i.e. the good stuff and Spanish measures of course)
No hoard’s of (other peoples) children making your lives a misery
No coach drive from hell from the airport and back, simply get your car and drive it to the well directed villa
No queuing for drinks, or snacks or requirement to wear a wristband!
Your music playing.. British TV if you want it.. perhaps a bit of WIFI should you fancy it
Lots of bathrooms, lots of space and separate bedrooms!
Explore your surrounding area and beyond – try as many or few restaurants as you like, BBQ at home, a glass of something in the hot tub – oh yes I think so
But most of all the utter peace and tranquility that can only come from being in a home from home, be it in the city or out in the country with no requirement other than to relax.
So for our family, its Villa’s all the way, be it Florida, Spain, Majorca, France, Italy or anywhere else, its always my first choice for the family and I cant imagine a situation when I would feel differently, we have travelled to villa’s with just our family, or with an au pair to help with the childcare, with grandparents and even with other families with children similar ages which is a fantastic option
We have travelled before with Villaparade and a couple of other firms but I can without reservation say that Villaparade have the most extensive selection of the most amazing villa’s to suit all budgets and based on my experience with them this year, I couldnt rate them highly enough. Take a look, there is something there for everyone
