If you're looking to take a break this year, rather than the usual package holiday, why not consider holiday rentals? Villas for rent have a lot of benefits over traditional camping or hotel-based holidays.
Villas for rent in Spain, Italy, France (or whatever your chosen destination) have the great benefit of allowing the whole family and assorted pets to get together- no-one's left behind. Whether you're a a large group of friends looking for adventure, or an extended family looking to spend some quality time together, renting a villa will allow you all to stay as a group without splitting off into smaller factions (and villas often come with extra bonuses such as a sun terrace or large private pool, with no-one to fight for the sun loungers). Renting a villa will give you both luxury and privacy, and will almost certainly make you savings if your other option is to stay in a hotel of similar quality.
Eat out if you feel like it, or stay in and take turns to shop and cook using quality local ingredients. Have a BBQ at 4pm by the pool, or a late brunch on the patio as a cool breeze blows in. Make cocktails as the sun goes down, or toast your good fortune in the balmy moonlight as you all share a meal together. When you find a villa to rent for your holiday, you make the schedule!
