We've used Villa Plus for years and they've always been great but I agree with previous posters, they've handled things terribly this year. They do have some great villas though, I find their website more informative than most, ,plus a lot of their properties are within walking distance of shops and restaurants etc.

Main things we go for are all amenities we want nearby, wi-fi, good sized pool and privacy (some villas are semi detached, not for us)

Thank you everyone. I will have a look at all these sites. Yes we have been looking at package deals with flights and car included.

Check the villaplus reviews on Trustpilot since lockdown. Absolutely do NOT book a villa only deal. You must add the flights through the villa company for it to be considered a package. If its not a package they don't have to refund you if there is a pandemic-type scenario.

Used villas plus a few times. Very good.

Depends what you want really. We picked a destination then drew up a shortlist of what we wanted. We didn't want to hire a car so needed to be central. Then basically trawled Air BnB, Home and Away, James Villas, Jet2 Villa Holidays until we found one we liked.

We always look for free WiFi and air con and a pool. Depends what you are looking for really. We've had hire cars with the ones we've used so we can travel around a bit more

Hi we are looking into maybe hiring a villa abroad next year, not sure were to start, any usefel websites or any villas recommended.
We haven't been away for a few years now, family of 5 so going all inclusive somewhere isn't an option due to ridiculous prices.
