I don’t know about you but all this cold weather is making me want to visit somewhere warm and sunny! I could spend all day looking at villa holidays, dreaming of laying by the pool in the sunshine, with the kids playing in the pool and warm evenings. 

However when it comes to going aboard it isn’t as easy with kids, you have so many things on your list of requirements, and things you need to think about. You need to pick a country that is family friendly, with activities to do around, places to visit that interest both kids and adults and the accommodation needs to be suitable for all. 

I decided that I wanted to look into villa holidays in Greece, it came up a few times in my search for family friendly countries to visit. With beautiful beaches, blue sea, stone villas, interesting places to visit and there are some good deals to be had too! 

I picked a villa because I want to escape and relax, I don’t really want to go on holiday and have to fight for a sun bed or have other people around us,  and sun bath with my Mummy tummy out in front of them! Downside is that you have to still cook, or go out to eat. 

First up, here are my requirements for villa holidays to Greece for my family

  • Air Con
  • Family friendly property 
  • Reviews from other people 
  • Flight time from UK 
  • Private outdoor pool 
  • Near the beach
  • Internet 
  • Sleeps 5 
  • August summer holidays 
  • Around £2000 

ClickStay had 581 properties for me to choose from based in Greece for 5 people for a week in the summer holidays, this was without adding any of my filters and requirements in. So I then filtered down what I wanted, and then had 23 to choose from. This really helped narrow the choice down, because it can become over whelming if there are too many to choose from. Prices listed below are for 1 week 18th-25th August 2018. 

My Favorite 5 Villa Holidays To Greece 

Villa Asterea, Ratzakli – Kefalonia, Greece  – £1,752.99

A newly built luxury villa with a private pool, close to the beach, and set within a peaceful location. Sleeps 6 people, with en-suite bedrooms, verandas and sea views.

Harmony Villa, Lefkas – Greece £1,261.73

 This traditional two bedroom villa is one of two independent villas, each with a private infinity swimming pool to watch the sunset from. Set in a natural environment of Olive trees surrounding the house, and Athani village only 500 mts away. Even the opportunity to take a private skippered cruise around the islands of Meganissi and Scorpio (the famous Onassis property).

Stonebuilt Country Cottage In Big Olive Yard, Koskinou – Rhodes £1,422.09

This stone country house is set in a big olive yard this villa is a very peaceful location, set 11km from Rhodes, this is a perfect if you’re looking for a relaxing holiday and getting away from it all. Sleeping 7 people this cute little villa has so much character, and the bonus of a private pool in the large garden. 

The Olive Grove Villa, Kaminia – Zakynthos £1,384.28

This stone villa has over 100sg mts of internal space, and with extra external space in the large garden set among the olive groves. Within the garden is a fantastic private swimming pool, BBQ and al fresco dining. Each year, organic extra-virgin olive oil is produced from the olives picked from the garden and a bottle of it is provided for free to guests during their stay. With beaches, shops and transport nearby, this is a perfect villa to be able to explore the area more, but the peace of coming home to the villa. 

More luxury, but more cost! 

If you are looking for a little bit more, and can afford more than take a look at this one. I really like this one! 

Sea View Villa, Karavados – Kefalonia £3,084.97 

Furnished and designed to a high standard throughout, this offers you somewhere to relax and take in the amazing views along the coastline. Sleeping 6 people, and including modern fittings, this villa is only 5 minute walk from 2 small sandy beaches. However you also have the private pool to use, and a covered terrace to enjoy your dinner.  This one is perfect for me!

  1. This is a nice guide! It seems you have it all figured out when going on holiday. You could always have considered South Africa’s sunny wildlife resorts. It’s something to behold! Maybe when your kids are older.

  2. Ah Greece. It’s so beautiful. We have been to Corfu and Lefkada but we are yet to visit any of the places above…hopefully soon as it’s such a great part of the world to take a holiday to. These villas sound and look lovely

  3. I love that air conditioning is your number one…mine too! I don’t like the hot weather, so this is a must. I’ve also never been to Greece, but it looks like a stunning place to visit 🙂

  4. My best friend is from Cyprus so I have always wanted to go to Greece! I think Clickstay has some beautiful properties and I know what you mean about dreaming about warm weather x

  5. I love Kefalonia and haven’t been there since I was a child. I would love to go back and villa holidays are perfect for us as we have a large family

  6. I think Greece is such an interesting place. I love visiting the old towns, with cobbled streets… just beautiful.

  7. Oh my ! Greece looks absolutely stunning . Would love to take the children and visit some gorgeous places like this x
