Summer 2012: Time to treat yourself to a luxury villa holiday?

During the predictably long winter, your thoughts inevitably turn to that sunshine holiday you’ll be taking in the summer; after months of dark nights, thick clothing and rainy days, the prospect of a break somewhere warm and sunny is a very exciting one. So this year, why not really indulge and treat yourself to a luxury villa in your dream destination?

Staying in villas is a great idea for those who like to do exactly as they please on holiday. You can sleep, eat and drink whenever and whatever you want, and go on any excursions that may take your fancy. Unlike some other breaks, where mealtimes or certain trips may be set, staying in a villa means you can totally construct your dream holiday. As a result, choosing a villa in the right location is very important: a destination with plenty to do, fabulous restaurants and great weather will certainly give you lots of options for the holiday of a lifetime.

If you’re looking at luxury villas Lanzarote is the perfect place for those who want a quiet break to really recharge the batteries. The relaxed pace of the island is great for chilling out and enjoying some you time, and there’s also plenty to do if you feel like it. Water babies should head to Costa Teguise, one of the main resorts on the island to try scuba diving, snorkelling and dolphin spotting along the coastline, before settling down for a relaxed tapas lunch to refuel.

If you want to splash the cash then Arrecife, the island’s capital, has a weekly market offering hand-made crafts, jewellery and lots of locally-sourced fruit and produce to sample. There are plenty of villas in Lanzarote to choose from, but the small scale of the island means that where you stay has no real impact on where you can explore. The coastline resorts are perfect for anyone who wants to be right in the centre of things, but for a quieter time there are some beautiful inland villas that offer plenty of privacy to visitors.

If you’re looking for a fast-paced, cosmopolitan holiday though, then the Algarve is a great option for trendy bars, beautiful beaches and plenty of friendly faces. Sports fans will love the activities on offer, particularly hiking and cycling, and the world-class golf courses are perfect for a competitive round or two. In the evenings, sip local wine and watch the sun go down across one of the marinas, and sampling fresh fish and fine food in one of the seafood restaurants is a must.

The area is known for its welcoming atmosphere, and when looking for luxury villas Algarve locals will certainly make you feel at home. But while the Algarve is the last word in fashionable, thrill-seekers looking for an action-packed break should consider Florida. America’s Sunshine State not only has beautiful weather, but enough activities to suit every taste and budget. The Walt Disney World Resort is ideal for anyone travelling with young children (or big kids), allowing you to try thrilling rides, swim with dolphins and meet your favourite Disney stars all in one. Those wanting to get in touch with nature should head straight to the Everglades to explore, with the help of a guided boat tour to find the best animals. And of course, the endless sandy beaches are perfect for relaxing between excursions, providing the perfect opportunity to enjoy the state’s famous sunshine.

When looking to stay in luxury villas Lanzarote, Florida and the Algarve are all great options for those who want plenty to do and of course, plenty of sunshine. After a long winter, and the prospect of a traditional damp British summer ahead, one of the best feelings is having a fabulous break to look forward to. Book now and welcome summer in style.
