Villa holidays have long been a family favourite for the convenience and flexibility they offer. The chance to get away from the crowds, relax by the poolside and enjoy al fresco dining with those who matter the most are often cited as the most important attractions for families. Add to this the comfort, privacy and space of a family home, Simpson Travel’s diverse and wonderful selection of hand-picked family luxury family holiday villas offers an ideal holiday alternative for the upcoming half-term and summer breaks. For the majority of schools in England, the May half-term break falls between 25 May and 2 June with the summer break beginning during the first week of July.
Simpson’s Mallorca programme has long been a favourite for families because of the island’s close proximity to the UK, and the Pollença area where the majority of Simpson’s villas are located is considered particularly well-suited for young families because of its quieter and more welcoming towns and beaches. Ca’n Tobias, a one level three-bedroom villa with a large swimming pool and secluded private garden is only a short 15 minute drive from the beach and the town of Pollença making it a perfect choice for young families. Prices during the summer break start at £820 per person for one week’s holiday based on four people sharing, including accommodation, flights and transfers.
Corsica’s law-enforced gated or alarmed swimming pools offer security to parents of young children making villa holidays on the island an attractive option for families. At family-friendlyL’Aghja, a cluster of four cottages set in an attractive garden in Patrimonio, a beautiful wine-producing region only a 15 minutes’ drive from the bustling town of St Florent, guests can enjoy the stunning landscape of rolling hills and the pretty village that gives the area its name. The beautiful garden offers plenty of space for outdoor activities and relaxation, and the alarmed shared swimming pool provides security for parents. Each cottage features a private patio making L’Aghja suitable for those seeking privacy as well as those who do not mind some friendly neighbourly contact. Prices during the summer break start at £675 per person for one week’s holiday based on four people sharing, including accommodation, flights and transfers.
The Greek islands continue to be a popular destination for the British. The political woes of the country seem a far cry from the islands where unhurried life and quintessential Greece continue to attract families. On the ever-popular island of Crete, The Beach Villas, two hand-picked villas in a cluster of four located directly on Rapaniana Beach just a short drive from the small fishing village of Kolymbari, offer a great alternative for families who enjoy the beachside. Both villas are modern and contemporary and each feature three bedrooms, a private swimming pool and a garden that leads straight onto the beach. Prices during the summer break start at £1,002 per person for one week’s holiday based on four people sharing, including accommodation, flights and transfers.
The unspoilt Bozburun Peninsula in Turkey gives a taste of rural countryside and in the sleepy fishing village of Söğüt lies two of Simpson’s most popular waterside villas, Sevdam and Ruyam. Both villas occupy an unprecedented position on the beachfront and each comes with a private swimming pool and terrace. The area surrounding the village of Söğüt is known for its rugged beauty and authentic villages making both villas a perfect base for those wishing to combine beachside relaxation with local exploration. Prices during the summer break start at £1,035 per person for one week’s holiday based on four people sharing, including accommodation, flights and transfers.
