How to find the best villa for a family holiday

This is a collaborative post. 

Holidays are something completely different when you have children aren’t they? To have any chance of relaxing, you really do need to find the ideal accommodation. The advantage villas have is their generous size. Much like at home, you’ve all got your own space. Unlike at home, you’re also in an idyllic location with a swimming pool. But there are other factors to take into consideration as well, which is why using a service like Villa Finder can help you to find perfect villa for your family.

Why use Villa Finder?

Villa Finder was founded in 2012. They now have in excess of 1000 villas across Mauritius, Bali, Phuket, Samui and Sri Lanka. What makes them unique is that when a customer books through Villa Finder, a dedicated travel consultant will phone them. The consultant will talk through their needs, including whether they have children and of what age, whether they need car seats, a fence around the pool and any other requirements.

Based on this discussion, the consultant will show the customer all villas that fit their requirements. Once a booking is made, Villa Finder’s concierge team arrange your stay free of charge. From airport pickup to day tours, catered dinners and massages, everything will be organised for you. You’ll only have to pay the service providers you book with rather than being stung with an extra payment from Villa Finder for arranging it. What’s more, if there is anything you need during your stay, Villa Finder are on hand to help you.

Villa Finder also take their environmental commitment seriously. So, for every booking they get, they plant a tree in Sumatra in Indonesia. This is particularly close to my heart because Sumatran rainforests are being destroyed by the palm oil industry.

Why stay in a Villa?

One thing I love about staying in villas like this one in Samui is the privacy. Once you get home at the end of each day, you can close the door and rest assured that it’s just you and your family. Every villa has its own style, so you can choose one to suit you. The personalised service offered by Villa Finder will arrange any barbecues, parties, pool toys and other equipment or services you need, so you don’t have to.

The other thing you might not be aware of is the value for money a villa holiday offers. Whilst you pay a similar amount for a villa or a hotel, it’s much easier to save money by self catering when staying in a villa. So, all the advantages of a villa holiday come with a lower price tag than a hotel stay.

    Oh wow these villas look amazing! We have actually been looking into booking a villa for our honeymoon next year, as I love the idea of having our own pool and more room than a hotel room x
