Holiday villas with pools for 2021
Check out some of our great villas with pools for last minute availability during summer 2019:
Casa Blanca, Maro Spain (sleeps 4/6)
This cute, sleek Spanish holiday villa with a plunge pool is an ideal summer retreat. Take it for four or use the extra studio space at the end of the patio for six, but either way relish the location in the heart of this lovely town right on the beach.
Fly to Malaga (45 minutes)
Villa Paradiso, Sardinia (sleeps 4)
This modern villa for four has simply incredible views down to the sea. All the rooms have those views and the terrace and saltwater pool are a delight. The airport is nearby and it’s an easy island to explore. Beautiful.
Fly to Cagliari (less than 30 minutes drive)
Trulli Roccia, Puglia, Italy (sleeps 6)
An ancient farm building converted to a stunning Italian holiday villa, Trulli Roccia is tucked away in the olives groves but with Italian hilltop towns close by offering some superb food options. Check out the other Trulli’s these guys offer for different group sizes too.
Fly to Brindisi (40 minutes drive) or Bari (1 hour 10 minutes drive)
Villa Gelosa, Sardinia (sleeps 9)
Goodness. Finding a more Instagram worthy villa would be hard going.. This Bohemian villa for 9 on Sardinia is designed as a luxury retreat – the views are amazing. It’s also just inland from super cool Pevero Beach and Porto Cervo with its trendy nightlife. Not your scene? Then head to more traditional towns like San Pantaleo.
Fly to Olbia, Cagliari or Alghero
Finca el Frontin, Competa, Spain (sleeps 8)
Newly renovated, this Spanish holiday villa for eight has all bases covered. Private enough to feel like an escape. Small Spanish town nearby with great eateries. The beach less than an hour… But why would you go anywhere with that pool and those views?
Fly to Malaga (1hr)
Villa Louloudia, Kefalonia (sleeps 6)
With much of summer already booked up this Greek island villa could be the perfect antidote to the end of summer with a sneaky trip in late September or October. The views alone make it worthwhile, but it’s also nicely equipped and perfect for a group or family holiday on Kefalonia.
Fly to Kefalonia Airport (55 minutes)
Le Manoir, Languedoc (sleeps 10 +4)
A beautiful French manor house, stylishly furnished with superb communal areas. The main house sleeps 10 and there’s space for 4 more in the self contained gites (see the gites here). Take it all and you’ve two – yes two – pools to choose from.
Fly to Montpellier (30 mins) or Marseille (2hrs)
Agrumeto, Puglia (sleeps 2 – 4)
Nardo. We love it. It’s a great town with lovely Baroque architecture and plenty of great restaurants – check out our blog on visiting Nardo a true Italian Gem. Stay with Vincent in one of his stunning apartments of if you can book Agrumeto you also have a fab little plunge pool.
Fly to Brindisi or Bari (for which there are direct UK flights) then it’s a 50 mile drive from Brindisi or a 130 mile drive from Bari airport.
House in Aups, Provence (sleeps 6)
This little house in the middle of medieval Aups is a real delight – plus you can save 10% on a stay at Stephen’s perfect French holiday villa. It’s little pool is tucked away at the bottom of the garden and you’ve loads to explore just outside the walled garden. Described by a recent Further Afield guest as “a little gem”. Lovely.
Fly to Nice (1hr 30 minutes)
Le Mas, Dordogne (sleeps 12)
Oh now, this is a treat. Le Mas and its little brother Le Mazet (sleeping 2) have been beautifully restored and have rightly been garnering industry awards, meaning most of 2020 is already booked. The covered terraces and old barn overlooking the pool are delightful.
Fly to Bordeaux (approx 2 hours)
Trinada, The Algarve (sleeps 4)
“Just perfect. This villa is an oasis of tranquility and the perfect escape. The pool is perfectly positioned with stunning views, the garden is a beautiful peaceful haven.” We couldn’t agree more but that’s in the words of Justin, a recent guest. It’s a magical place.
Fly to Faro (approx 1hr)
Dammuso Grande, Sicily (sleeps 8)
Part of the wonderful Tenuta Borgia collection of traditional “dommasi”, on Pantelleria, Dammuso Grande has its own rather lovely plunge pool – famous for its appearance in The Bigger Splash with Cate Blanchett. Amazing interiors.
Fly to the island from Sicily, Rome or Milan
Casa Violeta, The Algarve (sleeps 4)
A laid back and relaxed villa that has that “kick your shows off and relax” kinda vibe. The inside space flows nicely and is great whatever the weather, but it’s the outside that is true holiday heaven. Covered terraces, pool, hot tub and BBQ set the scene for an escape to a quieter place.
Fly to Faro (30 mins)
