Family Villa Holidays – Idyllic With or Without the Sea!
- By: Sam Paul
Family villa holidays can be a wonderful way to get your family to relax and enjoy the stunning surroundings of the Greek islands. Greek islands holidays at this time of year guarantee excellent prices, stunning weather and all the romance of the Aegean. You can even add a yacht into the equation if you are feeling nautical!
The villa and yacht combination is perfect for families that have small children, or who are composed of some people who feel a little less sea worthy than others. The yacht is the ideal way to enjoy Greek islands holidays to the fullest, so it is certainly recommend to considering it – but as noted, family villa holidays even without the use of a yacht will transport you to a different kind of place, where spending time is all about relaxing, unwinding and letting the soothing scents and sounds of a Greek island wash over you.
When you book a holiday with a yacht included you will normally be expected to crew the yacht yourself (a bareboat charter) – though you can book with a skipper if you want to let someone else do some of the work! Crewing a skippered yacht is fantastic fun and will make your Greek islands holidays completely unforgettable. Combine the crewing during the day with family villa holidays for the evening and you'll have the twin advantages of enjoying the freedom of the ocean by day and having somewhere spacious and beautiful to return to at night.
While sleeping on a yacht for a week is a lot of fun, there is something to be said for combining the island lifestyle with the adventurous fun that is yachting. You are on holiday after all – and unless you are a hardened seafarer it can be a bit strange sleeping in a seaborne craft. Yacht and villa based Greek islands holidays offer an ideal compromise, and give you the chance to really relax at night – something you can't always do when you are sleeping in the hull of a craft bobbing around on the sea!
Family villa holidays tend to include normal services, like linen and heating. You won't pay for your airport transfer within your villa and/or yacht price, though, so bear in mind that this will be an extra cost on top of the cost of your accommodation and recreation.
Imagine it now – the warm night air, your faces warm from a day of sea air and sunshine. The memory of the rigging in the breeze, making that electric sound that only a yacht under wind power can make. Returning to your villa and preparing an al fresco meal from local ingredients. Drinking wine and listening to the chirp of cicadas, the sounds from a nearby village. And knowing you are going to be doing it all again tomorrow.
Greek islands holidays make the perfect escape from the pressures of daily life. Think about family villas holidays for your next getaway – yacht or not!
