Book Now or Miss Out: Med Villas for 2018

Villa specialist Freelance Holidays has made 90% of its properties ready to book for 2018, citing a bumper 2017 season and highlighting properties that, says managing director Paul Fogg, “will sell out early thanks not only to their size and style but to their location.”

Freelance Holidays is unusual among villa companies in allowing any day arrival at virtually all properties, even in peak season, making it easy for customers to mix and match with low-cost flights to create great value holidays of varying durations, from five nights to 9, 13, 17 … any length of stay!

Paul’s top tips to book early for 2018 include:
On KEFALONIA, Villa Penelope, Villa Odysseus and Villa Anna Maria. They sit together – but orientated away from each other – on a finger of the Liakas peninsula, with footpath access down to a natural level platform for a dip in the Ionian Sea. Each also has – of course – a private pool, and spectacular sea views.  Anna Maria was completed in 2016; but Penelope and Odysseus welcomed their first guests only in May, so that photographs of the finished villas were not available until late on in the booking season.

“Now the pictures do these luxurious properties justice, peak season dates will be snapped up by Christmas,” forecasts Paul. “All three villas sleep up to six in three ensuite bedrooms, making them perfect for families with older children.”

2018 prices (the same for each villa) start at £229 per night, rising to £759 per night in peak season.

On CRETE’S north-west coast, Villa Argiro is also tipped to book early. This tastefully restored village house is comfortable rather than luxurious, but the location ticks all the boxes. Not only is it in the heart of a real community, but it is less than 1km from the pretty resort of Almerida, where two gently-shelving sandy beaches fly a Blue Flag.

“The village square, with a choice of tavernas and a minimarket, are a couple of minutes’ stroll away and Almerida’s superb beaches are little more than 850 metres down the hill,” says Paul.  “Argiro offers outstanding value for families, with a peak week only £2359 for six people, and off-season rental from only £118 per night!”

A recently-added 8m x 5m private pool is the reason Villa Paxaco on MALLORCA will be hugely popular in 2018. With Roman steps for easy access, and a shallow corner section for young children, the property is also all on one level, making it a great family villa. The location – not more than six kilometres from both Pollença Bay and Alcudia’s old town – is also excellent.  2018 rates start at £125 for the whole villa, which sleeps six, rising to £285 in peak season.

In all cases, the price is for the whole villa, and excludes flights and car hire.
