Looking for a villa for next year but there is SO much online, it's sending me doolally. Thought I'd try mumsnet instead to see if anyone can recommend somewhere.
So, we are looking for:
- Beach holiday in Europe- early August for sunshine. - villa with a pool that will sleep 9 (5 bedrooms) - two families - preferably with a housekeeper who possibly would prepare breakfast. - walking distance to the beach and (crucially) a selection of restaurants/ beach bars. - ideally £4000 per week total. (Could push up to 5)
I think that's a healthy budget but all of the villas I fall in love with are around 8-10k per week which is just too much. We are looking for a 'luxury' type place. We went to the Caribbean earlier this year and the villa was perfect but flights were extortionate and really drove up the cost of the holiday, we also only had one restaurant/ bar nearby so spent money on cabs. (Really don't want fancy restaurants, just chilled places we can go with the five children aged 5-10)
Anyone? I'm hoping just one person will think 'I know exactly the place'!!
magenta - your links are the nicest I've seen and I love Mallorca (met DH there!!!) it's still that 'short drive' that bugs me. We want to wander to a bar and wander home a bit tipsy- am I being far too picky??
Bonsoir- have sent you a pm. Please send it to me, I know I will weep.
Villa Parade have a load of nice Villas -I have stayed in Mallorca with them 3 times at different villas and they have always been really clean and as seen in pictures-I think most of the Mallorca ones are around old town Pollensa or Puerto Pollensa so within walking distance of cafe's and restaurants.
I think they also do other countries now so worth a look at the website.
You also get some lovely villas on golf resorts in Spain and Portugal that are very luxurios and contemporary and very reasonably priced. However you would probably need car hire unless you were happy to stay at the on site restaurants and club houses.
