Our favourite destinations for family holidays in 2022/23

While 2021 may already be drawing to a close, the potential for travel in 2022 and 2023 is something to look forward to, especially in these colder months! As travel opens up and holidaying returns to its former glory, many of us are considering booking that big family holiday next year now that things are finally looking up for travel.

After two years of uncertainty, we at SPL Villas wanted to make booking a villa holiday with us as carefree as possible. After all, the run up to a trip away shouldn't leave you anything but excited.

In the unlikely event of a lockdown, a change in vaccination status, either where you are or where you're going, we have safe booking policies in place to still provide you with options. Our free cancellation policy will allow you to either postpone your holiday to the following year, receive a voucher that can be spent against another villa of your choice or a full refund.

We have villas on sale for next year and even some properties available as far ahead as 2023, so if you’re looking for foolproof holidaying with private-villa luxury, you’ve come to the right place.

When to book?

Lagos beach, Algarve, Portugal

While our villas make fantastic destinations all year round, our pools and nearby beaches really do come into their own once the warmer months roll around. With most Mediterranean destinations warm enough for t-shirts shortly after April (if not sooner), the May break is an excellent opportunity to travel with your family to one of our villas if you want to catch some late spring sun. 

Travelling in the summer holidays brings its own rewards, consistent high temperatures, great food and the assurance that seasonal attractions will be in full swing. If heat is something of a concern, our villas come with air conditioning, ideal for beating that midday sun and enjoying a reviving siesta.

Regardless of when you want to travel, our luxury villas are popular choices for families and large groups, so if you're going to guarantee a stay in your ideal villa, when and where you want, book now!

Family favourite destinations

With villas across the width and breadth of the Mediterranean, it's hard to narrow your holiday destination down to just one of these spectacular destinations. We've put together a selection of our favourite locations to help you find the perfect family holiday for you.

Spain & the Balearics

Cala Saladeta, Ibiza

Home of mouth-watering cuisine, fiestas and the fiery flamenco, Spain is a beautiful country with a coastline that's hard to beat. Whether you're looking for an island retreat in the Balearics, a beach holiday on the Costa Del Sol or something further afield in the Canary Islands, Spain is a great holiday destination for families.

Greek Islands

Places of myth and legend, millennia-old stories and traditions; the Greek islands in the 21st Century have moved on beyond doric columns and mosaic tiles but still hold that same magic in their beaches, attractions and food. With many islands to choose from year after year, whether Corfu or Zakynthos, these beautiful locations have something for all the family.

Zakynthos, Greece


Cyprus is an incredible island floating in the eastern end of the Mediterranean, home to family friendly resorts, traditional mountain villages and beautiful beaches. One family favourite is Nissi Beach, an idyllic stretch of white sand washed over with crystal blue waters, only a short distance from the hustle and bustle of Ayia Napa.

A firm favourite in recent years, Croatia has everything needed for a perfect family holiday. Vibrant coastal towns, rich historical cities awash in great cuisine and attractions, and lush national parks are all waiting to be explored.

Dubrovnik, Croatia


What can be said about Italy that hasn't already been said before? From the rolling hills of Tuscany to the rustic charm of Sicily, Italy is a country that rewards exploration and offers up so much to visitors. You can expect phenomenal food and warm welcomes from your holiday to Italy.

Booking your holiday with SPL Villas

When booking your perfect family holiday, there are several things to take into consideration. If you're planning on spending a lot of time on the beach, it may be worth booking a villa that's close to the sand or comes with a sea view. Likewise, if you want to make the most of a private pool or stay somewhere with plenty of outdoor space for al fresco dining, it can help to do some research beforehand into what you want.

We have a wide range of villas available to suit every need and taste, booking today can guarantee you'll find that perfect villa for your holiday. With our free cancellation and refund policy, you can rest assured knowing that if the worst should happen, you don't have to worry about losing out on a wonderful break.
