WHY RENT A VILLA FOR YOUR HOLIDAYS?

Thursday, September 13th, 2018

Holiday time is precious, so when it’s time to unplug, unwind and get away, you’ll want to ensure that every moment is enjoyed to its potential. Which is why many people are turning to luxury vacation homes instead of hotels for their vacations.

Offering unrivalled luxury, a private space to unwind and great value for money, there’s plenty of reasons to make the switch. Still need convincing? Here’s seven good reasons why you might want to consider renting a villa for your next break…

Villa Silvana

Enjoy Privacy

If holidays are about one thing, it’s getting-away. Renting a villa provides the perfect way to escape the daily grind without having to share your space with strangers. A private pool all to yourself, an outside dining space exclusively for your party – and in most cases, no immediate neighbors. Many luxury villa rentals, like Villa Silvana in St Barth’s, offer seclusion and luxury in a hilltop retreat, within easy reach of the beach.

Family with Kids in Pool

Value for Money

Contrary to popular belief, a luxury villa rental can be a great way to enjoy value for money. When you consider the sheer size of the property you have access to, often with added bonuses such as free parking, WiFi, gym access, cable TV and a private pool – the perks add up. If you enjoy self-catering, then it’s also a great way to cut back on expensive hotel food and drink. Furthermore, with the flexibility to check-in and out at your leisure, it makes for a stress-free way to spend a well-earned break.

Villa Rochelle

Great for Groups

Holidaying with a group of friends or extended family? Hotels aren’t always the most convenient way to spend quality time together, with groups often spread out. Luxury vacation homes, however ensure that you can spend time together without compromise. Villa Rochelle in Ibiza, for instance, is a breath-taking property offering 16 bedrooms for larger groups. It comes complete with private pool, gym, dance floor and chill-out tent (yes, chill-out tent!) to create an unforgettable vacation.

Women Shopping

Live Like a Local

The best way to immerse yourself in a culture is to live like a local. This can be hard to do when you’re surrounded by fellow holidaymakers. However, since villas are located in private neighborhoods and highly desirable locations, it’s likely that you’ll get to experience a different side of your destination. It also enables you to shop and dine like a local too!

Businessman

For Business and Pleasure

More and more we’re seeing business travelers bringing their families with them on work trips. Villas provide the perfect ‘home from home’ for families to base themselves, offering areas to work and play, without distraction.

Villa Vanya

Exclusivity

If for no other reason, a luxury villa rental gives you access to the most exclusive properties available. For example, the highly desirable residence of Jungle Island in Miami is home to Villa Vanya, one of the most exclusive properties in the area. It features waterfront views and seven impeccably decorated bedrooms in 10,500 sq ft grounds. It’s as close to a ‘money can’t buy’ experience as you could hope for.

Foodies

Foodie Lovers

Vacation homes are the way to go for foodies. With most properties boasting gourmet kitchens and endless dining spots, inside and out, it’s the ideal way to self-cater, especially enjoyed by larger groups.

Girls by Pool with Staff

Five-Star Treatment

And finally, you don’t have to stay in a five-star hotel to reap all the benefits of luxury. Villazzo offers luxury villas with an in-house concierge service, on hand to meet all your needs. This includes organizing personal touches, from stocking your favorite foods to making bookings and catering to the needs of your guests, and much more.

For an unforgettable vacation, Villazzo offer some of the most exclusive luxury villa rentals in the world. With outstanding customer service and an unrivalled portfolio of properties, you’re guaranteed a five-star stay.

ITALY VS SPAIN… WHERE TO GO THIS SUMMER?

Thursday, August 9th, 2018

La Dolce Vita versus Vicky Cristinia Barcelona, antipasti versus tapas and pasta versus paella! Spain and Italy may be neighbors, but their offerings are varied. When it comes to luxury villas for rent though, they both offer exceptional standards. Where you decide to go is entirely up to the experience you’re after.

To help you decide, we give the low down of two of Europe’s top spots to visit this summer.

Go for the Food

Both countries have a great love of food, both benefitting from their beautiful climate creating delicious tasting local produce and wines.

Villa Regina

For a love of fresh ingredients as well as pizza, pasta and steak, Italy is best served with a glass of local vino on the side. Tuscany provides the perfect backdrop for your luxury villa rental, with lots to explore in the Chianti region.

Villa Carlora

For something meatier, Spain’s famous tapas serves up a rich mix of chorizos, spicy meatballs, fried fish and patas bravas to name a few. There’s no shortage of local wine or ‘cerveza’ either, it would after all be rude not to try a local Estrella! Each region is known for its own speciality, with so much diversity, you’d may be inclined to extend your stay. If you do, Villa Carlota in Marbella is surrounded by peace and tranquillity in its expansive gardens.

Villa Adele

Soak up the Culture

Neither country is short on heritage and sights, but Italy is home to some of the most famous art and architecture in the world. From the Colosseum in Rome, to Michelangelo’s David statue in Florence. Stay in luxury villa in Sorrento and you’ll be close enough to visit the incredible Pompeii historical site.

From the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona to the Guggenheim in Bilabo and the modern architecture of Valencia. Spain’s cultural sights are endless and plentiful. Gothic architecture with baroque influences, fused with modern design deliver something for everyone.

Villa Livia

Bliss out on the Beach

Glorious weather and coastal shores are a plenty in Spain. The magical Balearic Islands provide the perfect escape for beach life. In fact, it doesn’t get much more exclusive than Villa Livia, a beautiful Ibizan bolthole set in luscious surroundings. It’s also within easy reach of some of the island’s best beaches, including Cala d’Hort and Cala Vadella. Meanwhile, the ultimate beach island of Formentera, just off the coast of Ibiza, demands a visit – least of all for its famous picture postcard views.

Looking to the mainland, Costa Brava is known for its stretches of coasts with turquoise waters, attracting tourists throughout the summer season.

Villa Wendy

Italy is of course known for its lakes, be it Como or Garda. A-listers including George Clooney are huge fans, and as such it attracts a well-heeled visitor. The seductive island of Sardinia, should however not be overlooked. With tens, if not hundreds, of beaches to choose from, it regularly tops the ‘best beaches in the world’ list. Don’t miss out on your luxury villa rental and stay close to the action.

We’ve only skimmed the surface of what these great countries have to offer. However, both are ideal to visit during the warmer summer months, and are well geared towards tourists. Wherever you decide, you can’t go wrong with a trip to two of Europe’s most popular destinations.

Villazzo and Global Luxury Villas provide luxury vacation homes around the globe, including Spain and Italy. Coupled with outstanding service, Villazzo provides all the trappings of a five-star hotel, in the privacy of your own luxury villa.
