You may have decided upon your destination, but what about the location of the villa itself. Are you looking for somewhere near the beach, the countryside or close to a city?  An isolated retreat may seem ideal when you're booking it, but think carefully about the practicalities – especially if you're with children or a large group. Is there a shop or restaurant within walking distance, for example?
Second home and holiday home owners used to be able to claim discounts in their council tax in the United Kingdom, as the property is vacant for much of the year. This is no longer true in many areas, including Carmarthenshire; if the property is empty (but furnished) no discount is permitted and the owner will be liable to pay the tax in full.[12] But, In Cornwall, since 2004 second home owners can claim a 10% discount in their council tax.[5] Prior to 2004, they could claim a 50% discount in Cornwall,[13] they are still able to claim 50% in many other areas in England.[6] The Welsh movement, Cymuned, promote the principle that owners of holiday homes should pay double the standard rate of council tax, as they do not otherwise invest in the local community.[14] Testimony of this is to be seen in a report on the effect of holiday homes in Scotland, which found that those who went on holiday to Scotland spent an average of £57 a day, in comparison to just £32 a day spent by those visiting their holiday or second homes.[4]

Some villas have specific days of the week for check-in and checkout, (usually a Saturday) so ensure this fits in with your plans. If you're looking for a 10-day break, for example, you might want to book a week at a villa plus three nights at a hotel.  The same goes for weekend breaks – during peak holiday periods these may not be permitted unless there's a last minute booking or a cancellation.

We stayed at the villa for two weeks in August. We went as two families who are still really good friends!!! We pulled up outside and decided we must have the wrong place as it was a castle! It is very clean and very well equipped. It is obviously a well loved, lived in family holiday home.The beds were very comfy and the air con a must in August. The pool was an amazing 32 degrees and it was lovely to swim in the evening with the lights on. A car is a must. We fished from a boat (and shopped at the markets!) for our supper. Seafood, and fresh fruit and veg are a foodies dream. We all love to shop and cook and spend time together so was our ideal holiday. Loads of games and books so you won't need to take any. We had such an amazing time we have booked to go back next year already. Thankyou Noel and Sue we are counting down the days! … see more

The outside space was amazing, very large secluded garden with loads of seating areas and the best pool (heated) we have ever had. The villa was furnished to an exceptional standard, with many extras included e.g. free wi-fi, sky tv with hundreds of films & hairdryers. The villa was far enough out of town to be quiet but close enough (10mns) for walking to restaurants in the Old Town at night. We were pleasantly surprised to have a maid service in the middle of our week and the pool was cleaned mid week too. Great to have an owner who called our first night to make sure everything was ok, and called again on our last night to check all was well. Eric (the owner) was really helpful and easily contactable. … see more

There are some key advantages for staying in a hotel. Hotels (and other types of traditional accommodations such as motels, inns, resorts, etc) are the most popular choice among business travelers and people traveling alone or with large groups. When traveling to a city for the first time, hotels are usually the safest accommodations you can find due to their centralized locations and security features.
We had the most relaxing, thrilling and genuine vacation experience imaginable. The house, its pool and its beautiful setting is a paradise in itself and Giuseppe took care of us in a wonderful and most hospitable way. Sant' Ambroggio's inhabitants welcomed us in every way and we felt very much as part of the village life for a week. We would return tomorrow if we could! … see more

Hotels also feature more outside amenities such as pool areas, restaurants, on-site exercise facilities, etc. Hotels also feature more personal safety features when visiting a foreign city for the first time due to their on-site security and central locations.
