Why should I book a villa instead of a hotel?
When you break down a per-person rate for a villa rental and compare it with an upscale resort or high-end hotel,
you’ll find it’s highly competitive. Also, a holiday villa has features and amenities that you won’t find in even the
best hotels, or resort: complete privacy, gourmet kitchens, private swimming pools, spas and grounds, and often
beautiful, stunning views. Your time in a luxury villa also lets you experience your destination as the local
residents do. You get to live daily life in a favorite locale among luxurious surroundings. Best of all, at a BE&D’s
villa you’re surrounded by the people you want to be with – friends, family, and significant others.
Are the villas children friendly?
Almost all our villas have spas or swimming pools, as well as state-of-the-art entertainment systems. We can also provide you with a list of local playgrounds; bike paths, attractions and children-oriented activities that can help you plan your children’s entertainment. All of the nannies on our preferred providers list are experienced at keeping children happily occupied. We can also help you organize baby equipment so you can travel lightly.
