‘Small party’ deals on villas with private pools from Vintage Travel

With peak season now behind us, Vintage Travel – specialists in villas with private pools – is offering small parties the option to stay in one of their larger houses at considerably discounted prices.   Guests do, of course, still have exclusive use of the property and grounds, but can enjoy the extra space  provided by a bigger villa.

As an example of ‘small party discounts’ a week in October in Casa do Eido da Deveasa – a magnificent eight-bedroom property near the riverside town of Ponte de Lima in Portugal – is priced from £1998 for up to 18 guests.  However, parties of up to eight can enjoy a week’s stay at this 17th century property for £1598, a discount of £400.   Facilities at the villa include a private swimming pool, a poolside shower, lawns and open terraces, table tennis, a badminton net, plus a sauna and small gym.

In Aveyron in South West France is Soulages, an impeccably restored four-bedroom stone house which enjoys breathtaking views over tree-clad hills and the deep river valley below it.  A week in October for eight guests costs from £1086, but for parties of up to four the price is £732, a discount of £354. The villa has a games room with top quality gym equipment and in its landscaped grounds of 2.5 acres there is a private heated swimming pool, a poolside gazebo and dining terraces,

Small party discounts are also available at more modestly-sized villas such as Can Jomil, situated in the ‘picture-postcard’ scenery on the Catalan coastline on Spain’s Costa Brava. This light and spacious three-bedroom villa costs £898 for parties of six during October, while parties of up to four pay from £598, a discount of £300. The villa has a private pool, open and shaded terraces and a built-in barbeque.

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

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.
