What type of rental properties are available?
There are a wide range of villas available to suit your travel needs. We have rentals for budget travellers through to luxury seekers looking for lavish villas and estates, including private beaches and butlers with full household staff.
How much are the villas to rent?
Prices vary according to the type of property, location and season. The first considerations are where you wish to be and what type of rental you're seeking. Some properties are more affordable than others, and renting in periods that are not high or peak season will save you money.

The price details are given on each of the villa particulars on the website.
