Catering options for groups renting large villas are worth considering even if its only for one or two evenings, so that you can all relax and enjoy the holiday.
At Villas Worldwide we have a fine collection of large villas amongst which there are a number with tried and tested catering services which have been enjoyed and recommended by our clients.
One of the most heartfelt recommendations came from some Polish clients who stayed in a chateau in France this year and they were absolutely thrilled to have enjoyed home cooked French food in a real French chateau.
We also had a group from Austria who stayed in one of our most expensive villas in Corsica and the organiser wanted to be sure her invited guests would feel that both the villa and the catering service were of a high standard whilst remaining authentic Corsican. The local cook who also takes care of the villa made sure all went well.
The interesting thing is that with a catering service in a large property not only do you free everyone from the chores of cooking and washing up and clearing away but you can actually eat more appropriate food than if you were to go to a restaurant and you don't have to drive anywhere.
It is a fact that in some countries, such as France the food eaten in the home is in many ways superior to what is on offer in a restaurant as it is more authentic, down to earth and homely, more in tune with everyday living. It's one of the great joys of a holiday abroad to eat out in a restaurant, there is no doubt about that but the food is often "richer" than what you would normally eat and that isn't necessarily what you want on a day to day basis. Sometimes you just want something simple but tasty.
That is what you can expect when you take up the catering services on offer in some of our larger villas. We will help you organise your basic requirements in advance with the local caterer then once you are there it's up to you. The caterers are used to what most people want so everything tends to go smoothly despite the inevitable language differences.
If you feel you would like to switch off and have a real break, if only for a few days, it is certainly something worth contemplating when you are choosing a large holiday villa for your group.
The feed back we get from our clients is that the catering services offer good value and more than match expectations.
