DEBUNKING THE MYTH BEHIND VILLA TRAVEL
Villa travel is growing in popularity, yet some travelers remain skeptical. Here are some of the most common misconceptions, and the truths debunking the myths:
Myth: Villa is just a fancy way of saying ‘vacation rental’
Truth: That’s like saying a Studebaker is a Rolls Royce! In order for a ‘vacation rental’ to be elevated to the status of a ‘villa experience’ several criteria must be met. The property must be in a highly sought-after vacation destination, and should be in a coveted location within that destination, like ski-in/ski-out, on a golf course, or offer lovely ocean views. Likewise, the home itself should have superior upgrades
Myth: A Villa Doesn’t Come with the Same Amenities as a Hotel
Truth: There’s no reason to accept anything less than 5-Star amenities from a villa experience. Expect luxurious robes, sumptuous bath amenities, quality beds and bedding, and superb services like daily housekeeping, top chefs and butlers, and reliable concierge
Myth: Villa Travel is Much More Expensive than a Hotel
Truth: Simply not true. It is often a better value! Villa travelers can often save money by booking one villa as opposed to multiple hotel rooms every night of their stay; and gourmet kitchens allow meals to be taken in. Think of the money to be saved by not eating at pricey resort restaurants 3 times a day, each day of your stay!
Myth: Villas are only Found in Europe
Truth: It’s true, Classic Villas are found throughout Europe, and usually consist of grand historic estates, however, modern villas are found throughout the world. They offer 1-10+ bedrooms and are a great option for couples, families, reunions and retreats
