Peak season villas with private pools ‘just for two’…

Villas with just one bedroom that offer a private swimming pool are hard to find, so specialist operator, Vintage Travel, is delighted to be able to offer a selection of such properties to couples that are restricted to taking their holidays in peak season.

These include Casa Francigena, a country retreat for two nestled on the hillside above the medieval town of Bolsena – and the lake of the same name – in the  Lazio region of Italy.

Floor-to-ceiling patio windows line the entire length of this stylish villa.  These lead to a covered terrace with views over the garden – home to a hexagonal-shaped private swimming pool and a built-in barbeque – to the olive grove beyond.  Bolsena, with its restaurants and cafes, is just two kms away and a scenic drive around the lake reveals pretty villages such as Marta, Capodimonte and Montefiasco, renowned for its white wine. A seven-night holiday from 18 August is priced at £1250 (saving £200) or £1350 from 25 August (saving £100).

Or in the small town of Orgiva in the undiscovered Alpujarras region of Spain, is Casa Encantadora.  This smart property sleeps two in one bedroom and its slightly elevated position means that the lawned garden looks across rooftops to the mountains beyond.  In its grounds there is a private swimming pool, a poolside shower, a covered dining terrace and a built-in barbeque.

This is the perfect place to explore the picturesque Alpujarras; there a myriad of ancient roads ideal for walking or cycling, head south to the stunning mountain scenery to coastal Salobrena (a 30-minute drive) or, for a spot of culture, the ancient Moorish city of Granada is just 55 minutes away by car.  A week from 18 August costs just £898.

Flights and car hire can be arranged by Vintage Travel on request.
