Many travelers think of a Spanish holiday as an incredibly luxurious vacation. The beautiful countryside, festive events and fascinating culture and history offer a welcome change from the standard "vacation." Now there are more reasons than ever to pursue the dream of a Spanish vacation.
Private villas are a hot trend for the avid vacationer. With such endless possibilities, it's easy to see why the demand is rising. Private villas offer many accommodations and amenities that you won't find elsewhere.
Villas are constructed to be lived in. Unlike hotel or motel rooms that cater to single or double-night occupancy, villas are there to welcome travelers who want to stay a week or a month. They are also less expensive than many hotels.
Villas are much more open and welcoming. They are expansive in comparison to the majority of hotel or motel rooms. They also have all appliances, furniture, linens and towels. Some travelers may even want to take advantage of the villas that offer staff to cater to your every need.
Spanish villas offer all the modern amenities that travelers are accustomed to. Many have private pools, gyms and entertainment centers. The fact that you are staying in a reserved facility ensures you will have more privacy. Each bedroom can have its own closet and bathroom, if that is what you are seeking.
The greatest benefit from villa living is the ability to go where you wish, when you wish. You don't have to stay in a remote area that's miles away. You can stay in the urban area of your choice.
Costa Calida is a beautiful spot for your villa vacation. This Spanish coast is located in the province of Murcia. It has warm weather year-round and offers the largest saltwater lagoon in Europe.
When deciding to rent a villa on this Spanish coast, there are some tips to keep in mind. First, when you locate a suitable property, is the advertisement reliable? It is best to attempt personal contact with any villa owner and speak with a person as opposed to arranging everything via the Internet. The result will be worthwhile. Speaking with the individual ensures you are responding to a legitimate query.
If possible, attempt to get references from previous renters of the property. These should be available online if the owner has an established rental history. Another venue is to find organizations or tourist groups the owner has worked with. This process of verification may save you time and money in the long run.
There currently isn't a "standard" process of payment; this varies by agent or owner. Many owners will request anywhere from 20% to 50% of the amount when you make the reservation. There may also be an amount requested as a security deposit or insurance against damage to the property. This extra amount should be refundable at the end of your visit.
Once you have responded to an offer on a villa, you should allow up to two days for the person placing the ad to return your query. If no reply is given, check with the organization hosting the ad. They may have alternate methods of communicating with the property owner or representative and can help you maintain communication.
Once your villa is rented, you will need to look into transportation during your stay. The Spanish coast is filled with a variety of rental facilities that meet a variety of budgets and preferences. A rental car gives you the freedom to travel wherever you want, when you want.
A private villa and private transportation will give you the freedom to vacation as you please. You can easily have a tranquil and empowering vacation experience in a new and inviting country.
