Spanish holiday villas are always in high demand. That's why many European holiday makers take advantage of cheap prices to buy their own villas. There are some risks associated with this, especially as the Spanish government has just reclaimed land on which villas were built. See the case of Len and Helen Prior for more information.
Therefore you may wish to have all of the pleasure of enjoying a Spanish villa with none of the hassle of owning it. There is a huge selection of villas for rent in Spain and you can search for them by region. Just make sure that before you commit to rent the villas have all the things you most want for your holiday. That might include air-conditioned rooms, a pool or easy access to the beach.
In Asturias you can get villas from just £405 per week including the three bedroom Cimadevilla. This lovely villa overlooks the coast, can sleep six people and welcomes children. Not only do you get sea views but the nearest buildings are all historic and beautiful to look at.
Renting a holiday villa in Barcelona will cost you slightly more starting from £441 per week. Choose from options which include an attractive private house with its own pool which has six beds and five bathrooms. This could be perfect for outdoor enthusiasts as they can get to horse riding trails and trekking areas within half an hour. If you want to experience the style of Barcelona itself why not rent an apartment in the Gothic quarter? It is only a moment's stroll from some stunning Art Nouveau architecture.
The Costa del Sol is one of the cheapest and most popular places to rent Spanish holiday villas. There are hundreds of villas on offer from really low prices such as £150 per week. They come with pools, beach views, within strolling distance of golf courses and only a short drive from the main international airports. The choices are wide and the prices are low on everything from studios to apartments and luxury villas.
If you are looking for a villa holiday on the Costa del Sol, try Espana Breaks out as they have a great range of rental villas.
Not as popular as the Costa del Sol but in its own way more beautiful, the Costa Daurada is a good place to get a villa. There are lots of blue flag beaches in this region, though it is less crowded than the south of Spain and a bit more 'real' in that more locals visit it. For just £240 per week you could get a stunning two person villa on the Costa Daurada which overlooks the River Ebro.
Another Spanish villa rental hotspot is the Costa Brava. This rugged coast lies between Barcelona and the French border and has large resorts like Lloret del Mar as well as smaller, more secluded, hideaways. There are a number of great villas in the Costa Brava which are only three quarters of an hour away from the nearest airport. All welcome children and have private pools as well as enough room to sleep four people.
Away from the Spanish mainland villas in the Canary Islands are incredibly popular. You can get good deals on villas in Tenerife, Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria if you look around. If you book villas in Lanzarote or Tenerife early you could be paying as little as £100 per week. And that amazing price is for conveniently located villas which are air-conditioned and have their own pools. The Canary Islands are famous for water sports, duty free shopping and some spectacularly rugged volcanic landscapes.
Off the east coast of Spain are the Balearic Islands like Ibiza and Majorca. They have many beautiful villas which cater to everyone from party animals to families and couples who just want a nice peaceful holiday. Villas here will set you back at least £200 per week.
