Europe is open!

A private villa is the perfect option for a holiday this year.  Relaxing and restorative, that poolside sun bed beckons!  July and August have a very few weeks left, but September onwards is the perfect time to go.  Lovely weather, less crowds, restaurateurs welcoming and markets brimming with late summer fruit and veg.  

Owners are allowing extra time between guests for their villas to be professionally disinfected prior to each group’s arrival.  Rigorous hygiene measures will be taken in relation to staff and the deep cleaning of the house and pool.

2021 is already busy with the transfer of bookings from this year, so availability is at a premium.
