Our Villa Holiday Destinations
Oliver’s Travels Villa Holidays
Our love affair with villa holidays first began when Co-Founders Oliver Bell and Ravi Sabharwal spent a week at a crumbling chateau in the Dordogne with a group of their closest friends. As fate would have it, that holiday was the start of something special. It was the beginning of Oliver’s Travels.
Today, we have over 2500 luxury villas, chateaux and holiday homes across Europe and the Caribbean – with new destinations launching every year. So, whether you want a summer jaunt in Mallorca, or a winter escapade to the South of France, you can choose from our luxury villas that will make you rethink the very definition of ‘wow factor’. We have villas with pools, games rooms, home cinemas, tree houses, villas with hot tubs and the list goes on.
We know that your holidays are precious, so next time you go away, make an occasion of it and book something quirky and one-of-a-kind. Ditch shared dining rooms in an overrated hotel and see what a villa holiday is all about!
Why a villa holiday?
Villa holidays capture the essence of ‘home away from home’, so really, it's a no-brainer. You’ll be free from the constraints of staying in a hotel; there will be no more staring at the same four walls or waking up at the crack of dawn to bag a sun lounger. A villa rental opens up a whole realm of new possibilities; enjoying your own private pool where inflatables are actively encouraged, modern kitchens that were made to be used and enjoyed; terraces with panoramic views and gardens where the kids can be kids without the disapproving looks. Exclusivity, privacy and space unlike any hotel - it’s the holiday dream come true.
Before deciding on the where, it’s important to consider what you want from your villa holiday. Is it to relax around the pool, dining al-fresco with a spot of sightseeing? Or you are looking for an action-packed trip? Whatever you decide, it’s a good idea to put your requirements at the forefront when discussing with our experts so they can match you up to your perfect holiday rental. Trust us, we'll find you a holiday home to surpass your expectations. And who knows, it may end up being more affordable than you first thought (with our average booking value of just £39pppn!!).
Fancy a dose of vitamin sea? Our villas in the Cote d’Azur will tick every box and then some. If it's peace and quiet that you're after, choose a cottage in the Dordogne and take a slow-paced approach to life in rural France, or if you're seeking the French fairy-tale dream, our opulent chateaux for rent will provide the ultimate backdrop. Any villa holiday to France is sure to include gastronomical fare, beautiful countryside and, it goes without saying, incomparable wines.
Britain & Ireland
Ah, the British Isles! Be it a staycation or a hop from across the pond, our holiday homes in Britain and Ireland are treasure troves waiting to be unlocked. Weather may not always be on our side, but the UK is still overflowing with luxury cottages with pools and hot tubs. Gather in one of our party houses in Scotland or be close to the action in one of our houses to rent near London and remember you can always ditch the kennels because Fido is welcome at any of our dog friendly cottages in the UK!

Where to take your villa holiday
When it comes to the ‘where’, we've got you covered. Traditionally us Brits have favoured the Balearic Islands, the South of France, Cyprus and Greece, but further afield we have some absolute gems waiting to be discovered. Whether you opt for an exotic villa in Morocco or a tropical Caribbean villa, you can expect the same levels of quality, service and luxury throughout. With so many great places to choose from, deciding where to go for your next villa holiday may well be the hardest part of the process; so if in doubt, ask our travel consultants to find the ideal luxury villa holiday for you.
Take your Spanish getaway to new heights and stay in a high-end luxury villa in Mallorca or its noisy neighbour Ibiza. And the fun doesn’t stop with the Balearic Islands, take to the Canary Islands and unearth the unique differences between Lanzarote and Tenerife that make these destinations so special. In the south of Spain, choose one of our villas in Andalucía where you’ll live like a local or you can soak up the sunshine of the Costa del Sol. It’s all up for grabs in Spain!
Enjoy la dolce vita with a stay at any one of our villas in Italy. A reputation of wholesome food, captivating history and culture in abundance, Italy will steal your heart and run away with it. For a relaxing retreat, whisk yourself to a Trulli in Puglia or if you'd prefer, absorb the rolling countryside of Tuscany. For island lovers, Sardinia’s crystal clear waters need to be seen to be believed and everyone's bucket list should include the very best of the Italian Lakes.
