Hi, we have a 3 year old and are taking our parents away in the summer to say thank you for childcare. We need 4 rooms. (sleeps 8/9 (siblings also coming).
Our problem is we want the shared space that a Villa offers but i would like it to be on a site that has a large busy shared swimming pool for our son to play with other kids. Flexible for anywhere so long as its hot and does cheap flights from local airports. I've tried googling resorts/complexes with villas but i'm not getting anywhere (or they have a max of 3 bed).
Any advice would be great.

I'm not going to be hugely helpful but...

This is exactly what I'm looking for too for Easter... If you find stuff can you pls post on here and I will continue to look took. I am going to do some research in the next few days

For summer I was considering a French center parcs - as you get a villa and then all the communal facilities too . Tho there is no communal pool as such. Some friends went and said its good fun.

If you want something in a complex why does it have to be one villa? Can't you get 2 or 3 apartments instead? It might save your sanity.

We've not stayed in the 4 bed villa but this place has a great shared pool, mini golf, restaurant and a little bit of children's club as well. Prices at the minute appear a bit excessive so I generally book cancellable and then wait until nearer the time for them to drop - although this might not work for 4 bed as I think there is only one.

Or check out James Villas holiday resorts - that's exactly what I think you're looking for - villas that are attached to a resort. I didn't tell you this, but you can use them to find what you want then google to see if you can get it cheaper as you usually can.

How about the Simpson travel ones in Greece? Not sure how many rooms and expensive though

We went to a great one in sardinia through just sardinia. Can't remember the name quite but something de felco. Private villas in a hotel complex, perfect. Trying to find the same thing in France but no luck.

Have you tried the Balaia resort on the Algarve?

We have been there a few times and have loved it every time. Great apartments, 6 swimming pools, very child friendly, tennis courts, gym, shop and lovely weather. Would recommend in a heartbeat.

Not sure if I am allowed to do this but we own a villa in the algarve that fits the bill...sleeps 8, private pool but also a communal pool and a short stroll to the beach and restaurants. Message is rented out via an ABTA agency but I would ensure you are well-looked after!

Pine cliffs on the algarve is exactly what you are looking for. We haven't stayed in the villas but they look lovely. It is a bit ££££ in high season though.
