Large properties – perfect for extended families or groups of friends – include Glenwood House in Tenby, a substantial and spacious Victorian house sleeping 12 in six bedrooms, four en suite. From its elevated position it enjoys glorious views across the town and to St Brides Bay and a stroll of around 10-minutes leads to quaint cobbled streets with shops, bars and restaurants.  The house also has its own games room giving space for youngsters in the party to ‘let off steam.’ A seven-night holiday from 29 December is priced at £2334.

In the seaside village of Saundersfoot, The Cottage is a listed period thatched property built in 1920.  This Arts and Craft home, full of character with an inglenook fireplace and beams, sleeps seven in four bedrooms (one en suite) and a few minutes’ walk leads to Saundersfoot’s huge sandy beach and the village’s restaurants, pubs and shops.  Guests can also enjoy – or take part in – the annual Saundersfoot New Year’s Day swim, when hundreds of hearty swimmers take to the water in this charity event.   A week from 29 December is priced at £1710.

New: More villas with private pools in Greece in 2018

Villa specialist, Vintage Travel, has expanded its portfolio of properties in Greece in 2018 with additions including a village house carefully restored to retain its Cretan heritage but offering every manner of present-day comforts.

Internally, Sterna – a cherished family home in the village of Xirosteni for seven generations – has an impressive stone archway, log beams, family heirlooms and exposed stone walls of a bygone era, but its open plan living area, designer kitchen, contemporary bathrooms and stainless steel staircase is firmly rooted in the 21st century.

It sleeps six in three bedrooms (two en suite) and in its grounds there is a central courtyard with a vintage wine press, a swimming pool, open and shaded terraces with oversized cushions and day beds, plus a dining terrace.  Nearby beaches include Almyrida (four kms) and Kalives (five kms).  A seven-night holiday in 2018 starts at £838, rising to £2326 in peak season.

In Kefalonia, Rabia – topsy turvey by design to maximise the spectacular views of the Ionian Sea – is a welcoming, relaxing home (sleeping six in three bedrooms) in the sleepy village of Mousata, just 1.4 kms from the sandy beach of Trapezaki.  On its first floor, the open-plan living area – with a vaulted wooden ceiling – has floor to ceiling windows leading onto a wrap around balcony.
