Many visitors choose to spend their holidays in a villa especially if they have a family or just they love the privacy and freedom. The villas work under the same specifications which are required by the G.N.T.O. (Greek National Tourism Organisation) for the hotels and the rooms to rent. The customers who prefer the villas mainly look for quiet and discretion and the prices are very competitive with those for a hotel suite. Most houses and apartments which are offered for holiday villas and homes are either built to be rented under the operation of rental apartments and rooms or repaired and reformed to accommodate visitors. They are usually advertised through specific sites.
It’s easy and is also a bargain. Someone can find advertisements for villas in Corfu, Crete, Kos, Peloponnese, even for apartments in the centre of Athens. To rent a house instead of hotel rooms is cost-effective, especially for family holidays or holidays with groups of friends. For example, to rent a house of 100sq.m. in Rhodes which hosts 6 people are needed 1.100€ per week. So the cost is approximately 60€ per night for every couple if one supposes and compares the prices for 6 people who would stay in 3 double bed rooms in a hotel. At the same time, the visitors can prepare some meals that decrease the daily cost of the holiday, in addition to other “comforts of home”. Villa with pool in the price of an apartment. The person who wants to rent such a house can have a direct contact with the owner through the site in which the advertisement is registered, accompanied by a lot of pictures of the house. The most of the villas provide basic hotel amenities such as housekeeping, linen and towels, internet access and full kitchen equipment. In Greece through the years, the villas have been multiplied, prettied up, have pools, BBQ in the spruce gardens, and have adjusted the prices according to the facts of our era and thus gain the interest of families and large groups who want to spend their holidays in an accommodation that could be their cottage.
Rent a villa in Greece for ideal holidays, but where?
Renting a villa often is considered ideal for a vacation especially during the summer months when schools are closed. Villas are usually perfect for families with children or large groups of friends. You can choose villas which are located away from the crowded tourist resorts and tourist areas, next to a beach for you to fully enjoy the relaxation of your holiday. The visitor has the possibility to rent a villa in areas with “special gifts” which are the cultural heritage of this beautiful country. Such areas are Knossos in Crete, Mycenae in the Peloponnese, and many other places with historical monuments. Greece is rich in such places and there are many options. As for costs, especially for tourists from abroad and mainly from the northern Europe, Greece is the “paradise” in places but also in prices. Usually 1-2 weeks in July-August period is the most appropriate from many viewpoints.
As it’s already mentioned, the options to rent a villa in Greece are really many. But what is the ideal place? This depends on the type of holidays who someone wants to do. For example, if we talk about families with children who want to rent a villa for relax holidays and for a long period; the ideal options are Attica, Peloponnese or Central Greece. These territories have a lot of advantages as they are full of trading centres, medical facilities, café bars, restaurants, museums and in additional whatever may happen to any member of the family is totally covered. Also, these areas offer clean and nice beaches, close to airports, quality and well equipped facilities, great variety of kids’ entertainment as zoo parks, sea parks, toy centres, museums and many more. The port of Piraeus is near so there is the ability for a daily trip to the beautiful islands of the Argo-Saronic Gulf, Hydra, Salamina, Spetses, Poros, Aegina and Angistri. However, the renting of a holiday villa in one of the stunning Greek islands is a better option for unbound, for couples or for a group of friends.
Why choose holiday villas in Greece
A villa offers an advantage in price as if you rent it for a longer period; it’s more possible to get it in a much lower price especially for weeks of lower call. You can save money as the villas offer a fully equipped kitchen so you can cook your own food and do not spend every day money in restaurants. Also, if the villa has a private pool you can save money as some days you can swim there and do not pay for the set of umbrella-sunbed you might pay in an organized beach. However, the big advantage of a holiday villa is of course privacy. The feeling that you are at home and you don’t bother or be bothered by someone else, that you don’t have to wake up early to arrive on time for breakfast or to eat every day in restaurants, while the same time you can spend some treasured time with your beloved people. And finally, Greece is without doubt, one of the most beautiful countries worldwide, with countless charming places and islands to stay, with many options for activities, accommodation and entertainment and the most important; warm, welcoming people ready to offer you the best they could.
