Planning a trip away can often be a lot of fun, but it can also be stressful. Decisions about where to go, where to stay and what sorts of things to do are all a necessary part of the process. While most people used to opt to stay in a hotel, keen on the idea of service and the simplicity of having a number of facilities at their disposal, more and more people today are looking to villas for their accommodation - but what are the advantages of going for a villa rather than a hotel?


Although many people think of villas as a more costly option than hotels, this is often not the case. Particularly for holiday makers travelling in large groups, staying in a villa can be great value for money. Cheap villas in Spain are common, as they are in destinations all over the world.

The ability to cater to all of your own needs can not only improve your holiday experience but it can save even more money. Just as at home, shopping for ingredients and cooking your own food is far better value than eating out in restaurants. While visiting local restaurants on holiday is all part of the experience, eating out every night makes going on holiday a very expensive experience. Shopping at the local markets is also a very enjoyable experience and a chance to get involved in the local way of life.


No matter how luxurious the hotel you choose, there is no rivalling villa holidays when it comes to privacy. It can sometimes be hard to unwind and relax fully in communal environments. Whether it is keeping an eye on your kids, making sure they aren’t causing other guests trouble, or waiting in line for some food or drink, sharing a hotel environment with others can detract from your enjoyment of a holiday. Staying in a villa means you can relax entirely, not having to worry about other guests other than your close family or friends.


Staying in your own space allows you do plan your holiday as you please. Whereas in a hotel, guests are often forced to rise at a certain time for breakfast, or to be in by a certain time for their evening meal, when staying in a villa you have no such constraints.

When catering for yourself, you can plan your time to allow you to do the things that you want to do. Where hotels can be restrictive in a number of ways, villas offer the highest amount of flexibility which can enable you and your family or friends to get the most out of their time away.

James Villas can help you choose from a wide variety of villas in destinations across the world. If you’ve not stayed in a villa whilst on holiday before, you will surely be very pleasantly surprised should you opt for one for your holidays this year.
