Making a splash! Why young families love our villas with private pools

Question: What do armbands, swimming goggles and inflatable unicorns all have in common with each other?

Answer: They all make villas with private pools 100 times more exciting!

When taking your family on a villa holiday, you want to guarantee you're all going to have a great time, kids of all ages, parents, and grandparents. One guaranteed crowd-pleaser is the outdoor swimming pool found in the majority of our spectacular villas. Every family has its share of fussy eaters and those who can't agree on where to go or what to watch; yet when it comes to holiday villas with private pools, you'd be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn't fancy a dip after coming home from a long day out exploring.

For many families, a pool is high up on the list of requirements for choosing where to stay, and it's easy to see why. For those considering dipping your toe in the water, let us explain why villas with private pools are such a popular choice.

Stay cool with a pool

Unless you're holidaying in the colder months (and not visiting countries that enjoy warm weather all year round), you're probably going to be experiencing some hot weather while on your villa holiday. As fun as exploring local sights or soaking up rays on boardwalks can be, there's no greater feeling than returning to your villa to jump into the pool. Even if it's just to make a big splash, a refreshing dip is a great way to wake yourself up after a sleepy stroll in the heat.

Likewise, if you're choosing to spend a day lounging around your villa, rather than retreating indoors in the midday sun, a pool can be a great way to continue enjoying the outdoors, with the combination of waterproof sun cream and plenty of fluids.

Having fun in the sun

Some days all you want is a day by the pool. Fitting in the local sights, soaking up the culture and trying new cuisine can all be very exciting, but at the end of the day, you don't want to come away from your trip abroad needing a holiday for your holiday. Whether it's lounging by the pool or playing a game of Marco Polo, family members of all ages can relax and have fun by the water in a villa with a private pool.

One added benefit is that if you fancy heading home at any moment, you needn't worry about packing up because you're already there! Something that may come as a relief to those tired of carting around more towels and swimming costumes than a taxi heading to the airport.

Making Waves

Unless you're playing a large-scale game of hide and seek in a villa for a large family, it's only natural to want to be able to know where your kids are at a given moment, but at the same time, you're not going to want to restrict them from doing the things they want to. If you rent a villa that comes with a private pool, you can rest assured that you know where the younger family members are without having to keep an eye on them at all times.

Likewise, you don't have to worry about sharing the pool with anyone else, meaning you don't have to worry about how much noise you're making, how much space you're taking up or how much water you splash across the pool! Whether you're looking for villas for large families or small villas, a private pool can make all the difference to your holiday experience. If you're looking for a villa in hot parts of the world such as Spain, Crete or the Algarve, a pool can feel as much a necessity as the front door! That's why we at SPL Villas choose our homes with care because we want to guarantee your holiday is as comfortable and memorable as possible.
