So you decided this year to go on a villa holiday abroad….
but which destination would best suit you?
How can you make sure your villa holiday fulfills its real potential?
Here we will give you some important tips for easy and stress – free villa rental, wherever you want to put your hat, and of course what you have to know before you are going to such a trip abroad!
Be clear what you want from your holiday! – there’s a difference between a seaside, quiet holiday house and a fancy expensive villa that’s few meters from the nearest bar or a beach.
After that tell your rental agency clearly about your needs. The villa rental companies should take an active interest in matching your perfect experience.
Choose a good and trust villa rental company, villa owner or tour operator. One of the best recommendations is word of mouth or friends who were there already and they have had good impressions from the place.
Renting through a villa company like Bulgariavilla.com, Booking.com, Airbnb.com, and TripAdvisor.com is generally safer. You can be lucky with private rentals and there are some beautiful properties and good prices. If you plan to take this route, you should be aware that there is an element of risk.
If you book through an agency or company, look for one that knows, monitors or even better – maintains all of its properties, which can provide you with the experience and choice to match your ideal villa.
Ask as many questions as you can.
Is the villa in the countryside, village, or urban and busy location?
Is the villa same like in the photos that you are looking?
What is the view? Is it suitable for kids?
Will you need a car or a taxi? Could the company provide you an airport transfer?
How many does the villa sleep – is it possible for extra guests?
One of the most appealing things about villa holidays is the opportunity to select the villa by your needs. But remember to ensure the villa you want, the early booking is essential. Rental villas are pretty well booked all the summer, and the best ones, the well-maintained ones get a lot of returning guests.
When renting a holiday villa in Bulgaria your contract will usually be with the tour operator or agency, but they are acting as agents for the property’s owner, so your contract is actually with the owner. So it is better if you can find the owner itself and rent the villa directly from him.
Always ask the agent or owner about the directions to the property, when and where you will pick up the keys and how you will be accommodated upon arrival.
Usually, the villa owners and companies require a refundable breakage deposit (normally paid on arrival) to cover damages, but unless you do something drastic it is unlikely to be withheld – breakings like a couple of glasses rarely counts. They can also include deposits in the price, so do check with your agency or owner.
Always ask what amenities and property features are included in the total rental price when you book. Electricity, water, and swimming pool usage are sometimes considered an optional extra in places such as Italy and Spain, but our holiday villas in Bulgaria included all of these. Also, make sure that bed linens and towels are provided and included in the price.
Check to see what facilities are available if you have small children. Are there baby chairs, and cots available? Does the villa have a washing machine or there are washing facilities?
It is important to ask if the owner does live on-site? Occasionally owners and caretakers will live near the holiday villa or complex. He can help you with useful information or guide you with routes about the area’s sightseeing, beaches and activities.
Check if your villa company provides a welcome pack. A welcome pack of essential food items such as coffee, tea, milk, bread, eggs, beer, ham, cheese, and butter is often provided to tide you over when you arrive. If a welcome pack is not included, ask, as the service can normally be provided at an additional cost.
