Villa news, events and resort information

The articles in our news blog below contain items of interest connected to the countries in which we offer our villa holidays. Our aim is to offer a resource for our clients and website users which can be used when planning a holiday or to gain insightful knowledge about a particular country, region or town and information on things to do or how to get there. Many of the villa news articles draw on our own first hand experience which we hope will help you get the best out of your holiday.

In addition we also feature occasional items which relate to celebrities who for whatever reason are on holiday or doing something of interest connected to an area where we offer our holidays. Many of us are interested in celebrity activity and these particular articles give some insight into why these people visit such areas.

We have listed our news blog articles in date order according to the country or region. If you come across useful travel information or celebrity activity which you feel we should feature in our news blog section then please let us know and we will do our best to include it.


Earlier this week Villas du Monde received a call from a client wanting to reserve the SOLA24 Villa Proche Cabris which is in the pretty village of Saint Cezaire sur Siagne in the hills 30 km behind Cannes on the French Riviera. On their last holiday they didn't go through a reputable company like Villas du Monde and they found that the distance between the base line and the net of the tennis court at their holiday property was insufficient, the result was two broken racquets, smashed against the back fence by their big swinging teenagers. They didn't...

After a particularly hot summer in the Mediterranean many families are considering turning towards holidays in mountain resorts where temperatures are more bearable, the air is clean and pure and there are lots of healthy outdoor activities. Skiing holidays are also proving increasingly popular in the last few years as many skiers are equally conscious of how good the winter snow conditions have been in the French Alps and Pyrenees recently. At Villas du Monde we have increased our range of self catering chalets in France to reflect the increase in...

The lure of warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine are reasons enough for many to head towards the Mediterranean in the south of France. Then it becomes a bit more complicated to decide between the main areas of Provence and the French Riviera.Many choose Provence mainly because of the Romans. Yes strange as it may seem it is the legacy of the Roman occupation of large swathes of the South of France and Provence in particular which attracts visitors from all over the world to Provence as it has some of the best preserved feats of roman engineering...

Rome saw the first workings of democracy in the civilised world and it is this which also made Rome a world power with a legacy unmatched anywhere, which we can still marvel at today. There are a number of reasons why people visit Rome which skews many lists of what to see and do. The major unique swing factor is religion which whilst obviously massively important isn't behind your average tourists reasoning although it does contribute to the prime splendours of the Eternal city. The top five attractions in RomeThe Colosseum is undoubtedly the main...

Brittany is located in the extreme north west of France and it is really big, so large in fact that independentist Bretons have for some time been campaigning for a referendum like the one held in Scotland recently as they feel actual self governance would be appropriate.Most holidaymakers have next to no interest in such weighty matters, they are far more concerned with the big decision which is "do we go for the north coast or the south". The administrative capital of Brittany, Rennes is in the middle, it tends to be bypassed.The north of...

Bordeaux is one of the most popular and visited cities of France after Paris, Lyon and Nice, here is what you can expect to see and do on a day visit.Given its status as the wine capital of France it is no surprise that the local Bordelaise folk have a refined pallet for their food and drink.

There are literally thousands of restaurants to choose from...

The islands of Croatia are legion and offer a quite unique holiday experience, the two main ones are Brac and Hvar, the question is, which one to choose?As far as travelling to Brac and Hvar is concerned there is little to choose between the two as the ferry from Split to Supertar on Brac takes just short of an hour whilst the boat connection from Split to Hvar takes is a little further but is still only an hour and twenty minutes journey time.One of the big swing factors for Brac is the Zlatni Rat beach which is unusually beautiful and sandy, it...

Greece is the cradle of western European civilisation and has a history complemented by legends which is second to none. Geographically it is unusual too as it has a large mainland which fragments as you go south, with a vast peninsula and numerous islands, large and small and is flanked by three seas, furthermore it is close to Europe and Africa. So the question many legitimately ask when it comes to Greece is where do I begin? Well to an extent, generally speaking it depends where you are at in life, if you are young and free, a romantic couple, a...

Infinity and beyond to any parent with young children immediately brings up images of buzz lightyear and his fellow toy friends but for villa holidays it is something else; a blue water blend with the sea to the horizon.It is an image which whenever you come across it staying in holiday villas in France, Spain, Greece or even Saint Barths in the Caribbean the visual effect never ceases to have an effect on you and you find you don't want to leave. A view of the sea and an open horizon has something else to offer, an open perspective.Put a swimming...
