Long term holiday rentals are rising in popularity, as people take their post-lockdown freedom back and seek to enjoy life at a more leisurely pace. Sure, a seven-night holiday is still amazing, but time flies by and you’re soon packing up your suitcase again ready to return home. The interest in longer stays is broad; perhaps you’re retired and looking for extended relaxation, a professional working remotely or simply want more time to settle into your surroundings. Our fantastic villas in over 25 sun-kissed destinations all come with a private pool, giving you that holiday feeling week after week. You can choose to get away for a fortnight, 21 nights or over a month if you like. Just think about that post-holiday glow!
The Benefits of a Longer Stay Holiday
• Settle into your surroundings
If you have free time for rest and recuperation, we don’t blame you for wanting to get away for a change of scenery! A villa holiday for two weeks or longer gives you that bit of extra time to fully, completely escape and switch off. You can enjoy the fact that your return to the pace of real life is postponed for a little while longer.
• More time to immerse yourself in the destination
Imagine getting to know the locals, improving your language skills or even learning a new language altogether! With a longer period abroad, you can strike the perfect balance between relaxing in your villa and getting out to see the sights. Spend long summer days around your private pool and balmy evenings dining alfresco at your villa, or frequenting your favourite tapas bar. It is this variety which makes a holiday for a month often more fulfilling than a week away.
• A chance for more family time
With families often living long distances apart from each other, or grandparents downsizing to smaller homes with little room for guests, a holiday may be the only way to spend quality downtime together. Having a place to go to get away from it all with an abundance of activities on tap can only be a good thing for busy families. Retired grandparents may want to rent a villa for six weeks over the summer, while their families with grandchildren come and go as they please. Whatever your family situation, a villa holiday is always a good idea!
• Our villas are equipped for longer stays
All of our properties come with great facilities to ensure your comfort, so you’ll feel right at home while you’re away. Whether you’re after a large villa suitable for groups or multiple families holidaying together, or a villa by the beach for fun with the kids, our abodes provide endless entertainment for as long as you need. What’s more, we have some very impressive long term holiday rental rates for extended holidays in Europe.
• Remote Working
The pandemic has seen many employees opting for remote work in their houses, local cafes and even abroad! Many professionals are getting bored with the same four walls and have decided to work remotely from another country for a month or two. And who wouldn’t love a quick dip in the pool on their lunch break?
• More sunshine!
If you are lucky enough to have time-a-plenty in the winter, summer months or both, you can swap the unpredictable British weather with sunny all-year round destinations such as the Spanish Costas, Canaries or even Malta. These countries are also popular winter sun destinations, so you can escape the freezing UK winters.
• Long stay holidays are more than a trend
It’s likely that extended holidays are here to stay. People won’t take travel for granted again, and they’ll want their breaks to be long, relaxing and memorable. Whatever your reason for an extended excursion, our list of villa holiday rentals cater to a diverse selection of holidaymakers.
