Are you tired of the traditional package holiday where everyone boards the bus and gets off at the same hotel? Do you want your holiday to be free from pressure and have the time to do exactly as you please every day?
Then maybe it’s time you considered hiring your own home in the sun for a week or two in the form of a holiday villa. For location, there’s no better place than the beautiful Balearic island of Ibiza to do this.
The choice of land or sea
Ibiza has a range of beautiful villas which can accommodate large groups as well as small. One choice you will have will be to decide whether to rent inland or overlooking the sea. Villas will not usually be set in the heart of the main resorts so hiring a villa is an excellent way of discovering more about this pretty little island as you will be away from the main action. Inland villas will usually have private pools and sun areas while villas next to the beach will have the Mediterranean on the doorstep.
Perfect for Families
Villa hire in Ibiza is perfect for families. Accommodation ranges from small to large enough to sleep at least eight people so a villa is an ideal solution for families who want to travel together. This is a popular arrangement because it means the young ones have company on holiday. Most Ibiza villas have three to four bedrooms as well as their own pool and sunbathing terrace. No more hiking back from the beach carrying heavy wet towels and inflatables; simply step outside your own door and relax.
Do what you please
Choosing a villa in Ibiza to rent means that you can quite simply do as you please. If you have had a night out and want to continue the party until early hours while having a late night swim, then you can. If you have young ones and they are already in bed then what better way to end the day than having a barbecue around your own private pool knowing they are sleeping safe and sound close by? If you have had a hard day at the beach or want an early start next day, you can go to bed without fear of disturbance from late arrivals at the hotel.
Discover the island
Some villa hires include a hire car although others may require you to hire your own. There are villas in the major resorts where coach transfer is possible but for inland villas, a hire car will be essential. Not only does this give you the freedom to come and go as you please, it gives you the chance to explore the real Ibiza under your own steam. It also means you don’t need to worry about getting back late and missing dinner at the hotel – you can eat when it suits you.
