Family Traveller are experts in villa holidays. We love them ourselves because they give kids so much freedom and there’s nothing like a family holiday villa for making a success out of multi-generational holidays.

If you’re new to the idea, we have plenty of advice to offer on everything from renting villas with private pools and the warmest place in Europe in April to packing tips for your first family villa holiday.

Although if you already have a taste for independence, our carefully curated collections are exciting to browse and very easy to book too.

The ideal destinations for family villa holidays

You’ll find European villas well covered from the gorgeous coast of Croatia and its charming Adriatic islands to the beautiful Balearics, year-round-sunny Canaries, amazing Andalusia and all over the rest of Spain.

Holiday villas in Turkey are a great choice for a mix of spectacular scenery, Mediterranean beaches, historic cities and fun resort towns.

Cyprus is another good choice, not least of all because it’s one of Europe’s sunniest countries and a great destination for villa holidays with younger kids in spring and autumn.

Historic villas in Italy or Greek island design icons

Since the ancient Romans pioneered the concept of holiday villas you won’t be surprised to find Italian villas are beautiful, from beachy homes in Sicily and Puglia to Tuscan villas with Florence as your neighbour.

Speaking of ancients, no line-up of perfect family properties to rent is complete without Greece. Sleek contemporary villas on islands like Mykonos and Corfu are designed to make you want to stay home, a lot. Although authentic holiday homes are another Greek signature and they’re found everywhere from Crete in the far south to the Halkidiki Peninsula in the north.

Another great advantage of villa holidays is flexibility which any larger or smaller than average family will understand. So it’s good news that there’s no such thing as a ‘standard’ size when it comes to villas: just the right size for you, your kids or whoever else you want to bring along. And easy to arrange getaways are something else we take seriously, plus we believe in finding you value for money, even on last minute bookings. So why not have a browse to begin with.
