3. Why booking a Villa instead of a Hotel or a Resort?
There are 3 main reasons why consumers choose a Villa over a hotel room for their holiday:
- Space: a Villa offers much more space than a hotel: A typical Villa ranges from 2 to 5 bedrooms – and offers additional space such as living room, dining room, fully-equipped kitchen and outdoor areas including private pool .
- Privacy: The Villa will be yours for the time of your stay and you won’t have to share the pool or bedrooms with anyone, you will have complete privacy.
Price: Private villas are often more economical for traveling families and couples than luxury hotels: A private Villa costs approx. the price of two 4-5 star hotel rooms whereas it offers not only more rooms, but also a private pool.
4. Is the photo on the website the exact villa we would be staying in?
Yes. All our villas have their own pictures that represent that exact property, except of a very small number of resort units that resemble each other.

Depending on the location, the size of the property, the number of bedrooms, or even the quality of design and architecture, the price range varies. For Blue Collection Villas , the price range can go from EUR 500/night up to EUR 50,000/night. This also depends on the season during your travel period (if it’s low, middle, high or peak season).
Another factor that the price would vary can be based on the number of guests and the number of days or weeks you want to stay at the villa. The longer you stay, the better rates you can get.
