Beautiful holiday villa on the Croatian island of Hvar
Nov 7th, 2013 by elisa

Hvar Island

Hvar Island

With vast fields of lavender, olive trees and vineyards, surrounded by stunning beaches and crystal blue waters, the Croatian island of Hvar has to be one of the most beautiful places to visit in the world.

Now is a particularly good time to book as the school holidays are over and many low cost airlines are offering great winter deals on flights.

With special offers when booking as a family or group, or for those staying longer than a week, this recently renovated island house might be just the accommodation for you!

It has stunning views of the Adriatic sea, town and hills. There are five double plus one single bedroom and the property has recently been renovated to an excellent standard. With all the amenities one would expect with such a substantial holiday villa, guests also benefit from two large patios, a garden, sunbeds, outdoor tables and chairs. Laundry will be done each week and you can expect to be greeted by an English/Croatian couple who will give advice on what to do and where to go on Hvar island and other nearby islands and mainland in Croatia.

The property sits five minutes away from the beach, and cafes, restaurants, piazza, market and boat hire is only a 10 minute walk away. It’s great for a relaxing holiday, but also ideal for those in search of more activity as within half a mile of the house there is sailing, water skiing, sea kayaking, paragliding, windsurfing, diving and tennis.

You can find this Hvar island house in the Croatia section of VillaSeek. For more information on the property and what to do there, go directly to the listing for the villa, where you can contact the owners directly.

Year-round sunshine – the Algarve

One of Europe’s premier holiday destinations, the Algarve is the most southern region of Portugal and can easily be reached by flights from various airports in the UK to Faro.

The Algarve is perfectly positioned for some of the best sun in Europe and has an enormous array of sandy beaches to enjoy it on. There are different areas to suit different people: Lagos is often a draw for a young crowd after a good nightlife, Faro has a fascinating medieval quarter, and Sagres and Carrapateira are a hit with the surfers and water sports enthusiasts for an activity holiday.

It is also a year-round destination for visitors, with much more chance of sunny weather even when northern parts of the country are covered in snow. Winter is short and mild, and spring and summer are long and sunny. It’s coming to the end of winter and into spring at the moment, so it’s a great time to visit for cheap accommodation in the off-peak season with it still possible to enjoy a trip to the beach.

This pretty, detached villa with its own pool and colourful garden is only 10 minutes from the former fishing village of Tavira. Comfortably furnished, Villa Casasol, accommodates up to six guests. It has an en suite master bedroom, 2 twin bedrooms and a separate second bathroom. A fitted kitchen with all the amenities, a large dining room/lounge with satellite TV and a wood-burning fire.

You would be forgiven for not spending much time indoors however, when outside has so much to offer: a tiled patio, garden with sun beds for those lazy days soaking up the sun, a pool-side barbecue and secluded outside terrace. You don’t even have to go in at night as there is outside lighting, and even the private L-shaped swimming pool can be illuminated for an evening dip! Prices start from a very reasonable £300 for long winter holidays of three weeks or more, and from £500 for all other times.

Villa Casasol is only a 5 minute walk to the beautiful Ria Formosa Lagoon (an area of great international conservation importance), Cabanas Village, and the golden sandy beach of Cabanas Island – reached by a short trip on a fisherman’s ferry boat.
