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. But, In Cornwall, since 2004 second home owners can claim a 10% discount in their council tax. Prior to 2004, they could claim a 50% discount in Cornwall, they are still able to claim 50% in many other areas in England. 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. 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.

Besides the added space and privacy, you’ll see that vacation rentals are a great value, too, often costing about half what a hotel would cost. If you’re wondering if that savings might come at the expense of comfort and amenities, the answer is not at all. You can kick back on the couch as if it were your own, cook your favorite meals in the kitchen, and check in on friends or colleagues with in-house Wi-Fi.
Eating out is a real pleasure in Majorca but be warned – you may not feel like cooking at the villa once you have sampled what is on offer in the restaurants. The seafood is sublime! Sea bass baked in rock salt is an island classic, and the catch of the day might include squid, lobster and sardines. But you don’t have to rely on what comes out of the sea – there are plenty of meat options, from fillet steak to lamb shank. Try the smaller family-run [more] places that will give you a huge welcome and are happy to advise you on your choice of tapas and other traditional Spanish food such as slow roasted lamb, rabbit with crayfish or sobrassada, a meaty spicy sausage. For your pud try the ensaimada, a very sweet, spiral-shaped pastry dessert. To finish your meal, you could try Hierbas - also known as Herbes - a local liqueur produced using fennel and other herbs and spices. Hierbas tastes of aniseed, similar to Pernod or Ouzo. Then there are the cafes where you can enjoy the great Majorcan desserts and cakes. Calories consumed on holiday don’t count! [less]
"Ten friends and one bambino enjoying the delights of Villa Santoro - what more could we ask for? This amazing place has the real ‘wow’ factor, we’ve really enjoyed relaxing, swimming, drinking gallons of vino, eating like kings, laughing, pool games, siestas in the afternoons, cooking on the barbecue, making the most of the space and relaxing atmosphere. We visited Cisternino and Martina Franca markets, tasted amazing pecorino and bought kilos of fresh local fruit and vegetables.We dined at Bel Italia in Cisternino, tucked into pizzas in Martina Franca, visited vineyards and olive groves and had several walks in the lanes around the villa picking wild blackberries on the way. It has been 'trulli trulli amazing'."
On peut également opter pour l'option partage, en proposant à ses amis de venir résider aussi dans cette fameuse villa de vacances en bord de plage. Ainsi, on divise les prix en optant pour un séjour à plusieurs couples ou familles, et on économise un maximum en un rien de temps. Enfin, on a aussi la possibilité de voyager légèrement hors saison : les mois de juin et septembre sont deux périodes souvent intéressantes pour partir en vacances.
This property is in a perfect location, just a 5 min drive or 15-20 minute walk from the old town and beaches and a 5 min walk to a lidl and mercadona supermarket. The villa is in a private little area accessible only through the properties surrounding the pool. On street parking was always available outside. Everything you need inside: washing machine, dishwasher, fully equipped kitchen, outside seating front and back of the property, clothes airer, fan, smart tv, dvd player (no HDMI cable so couldn't use it but logged into our netflix account. Joan Marc said it may have gone when the new tv arrived so he will get a new one), wifi. The area is beautiful with the ruins, small and beautiful medieval town, the old town and further along a busier more touristy area but still not massively commercialised. In the surrounding area there are waterparks, watersports, stunning beaches within short driving distance (Montgo). Parking in the area is great, mostly free on the streets, near beaches and free car parks - small areas are pay for parking but mostly in the old town area so makes driving more accessible. The ting ting train runs all the time and is great if you walk along to any of the towns/beaches then don't want to walk back :) One minor downside was that on arrival at the property at 9pm saturday night there had been a misunderstanding with the cleaner and our arrival date so we had no towels or bedding but the lovely man who let us in; Josep couldn't do enough to help and we got some blankets and towels (too hot for anything more than a sheet luckily). We emailed the owner Joan Marc who was abroad himself but he replied very quickly and had a cleaner round first thing in the morning and then the lady who dealt with the bedding and towels arrived and sorted all of that out, he also offered an additional clean if we wanted it in the week but we didn't feel it was necessary, we were just happy it was all sorted so quickly and we could enjoy our holiday.
The Caves of Drach or Dragon Caves, just outside the pretty harbour resort of Porto Cristo are among the island's most outstanding tourist attractions. These sensational cool, dark limestone caves are spread over 2,000 metres of spectacular formations of stalactites and stalagmites. As if this wasn’t enough, in the middle is a massive floodlit lake - one of the biggest underground lakes in the world. The hour long tours are highly organised and vast [more] numbers of visitors are 'processed' through the system every day during the summer in groups of several hundred people at a time. Multi-lingual guides give you the lowdown on the weird stalactite formations with names like the Fairies' Theatre and Diana's Bath, before you are treated to a 10 minute classical music recital by a string quartet. After a light show imitating the sunrise you have the option of crossing the lake by boat or on foot over a bridge. [less]

Our comfortable, well appointed, self-catering holiday apartments are an ideal base from which to explore the unspoilt beauty of the Scottish West Coast. From the grandeur of the mountains with their deep mysterious Lochs, ancient castles, abbeys or prehistoric stone circles, there is a wealth of scenery and history in this beautiful corner of Scotland. Arguably, no other area of Scotland offers so much: from the ancient capital of the Scots in the 6th century at Dunadd in the Kilmartin Glen, to Easdale Island and its fantastic history.
Belle Vue Apartments is probably the largest holiday resort complex in Europe, covering an area of 150,000 square metres in the Port d'Alcudia, housing 1,474 visitors across 17 buildings. In other words, its ginormous! Within it you will find the Hidropark, with acres of slides, rides, wave pools and splash pools as well as bouncy castles, trampolines, paintballing, giant floating balls and mini golf. If you are feeling bold, try one of the two 15-metre [more] Kamikaze slides without screaming! Or sample the thrills of the Spiral with its superfast descent ending with a big splash directly into the water. The 1000-square metre Wave Pool generates waves over one metre high – are you ready? When you get peckish the cafe Neptuno will sort you out. Hidropark is open every day from the 1st May to the 31st October from 10.30am. until late afternoon, and it’s free for the under twos.
