Who to recommend a CV Villa holiday to?
With a wide range of villas, we have something for everyone and we provide superb value for money. Please don’t believe the misconception that villa holidays are expensive – they are often less expensive than hotel stays.
We serve a lot of families, including some incredibly special multi-generational holidays and celebrations but we also have villas that are perfect for two.
Clients that want time together, either as a couple, a family or a group of friends. They want both the space to breathe and do their own thing, and comfortable, high-quality communal areas to come together and share their holiday experience. If they have children, safety and security is also , of course, particularly important.
They want their own private space in the sun - great weather in an amazing location. They want their accommodation to feel exclusive to them, like a home from home for the duration of their stay.
They want to do things at their own pace, choosing when, where and what to eat and drink, rather than having to fit around hotel serving times. They want the freedom to organise their days as they see fit, whether that’s a day of relaxation by the pool, or exploring the local area.
And most importantly, they want a high standard of accommodation and great service. That’s why they choose a villa holiday and the flexibility and control it provides.
At CV Villas, we understand this and provide your clients with the holiday they expect and deserve – their holiday, their way. The key word with a villa holiday is ‘choice’ – a villa provides the ultimate holiday choices for your customer; who they want to share their holiday with, what services they require, what décor they prefer, what facilities are a must. NO other type of holiday can offer this level of flexibility, personalisation and choice.
