Finding a Spot of All Important Alone Time on that Large Group Villa Holiday

by Saron Lease 10th May 2022

Family and friends time is precious but what about when you all descend on a holiday villa together?

Would you really like to holiday with your friends or extended family but don’t want to spend every waking hour with them? It is often when we are forced to live together that we realise that Uncle Joe’s proclivity to offer his candid opinion on every subject under the sun, gives rise to tensions and can spoil a much needed and longed for holiday.

What better then, to choose a large group villa which can accommodate you all in separate apartments or separate buildings or wings, that you can retreat into for privacy and much needed R&R from the rest of the group, but which also has great socialising areas so you can get together to cook, eat and relax?

Have a look at lovely large group Villa Sophia which has a variety of sized apartments for your group of up to 20 people, but also has a fab large space with a kitchen and dining area where you can all socialise and eat together.  The villa is in beautiful Zaton on the Dubrovnik Riviera, with its beaches, bars and restaurants, and  just around the bay from the Sun Gardens resort.

Also Dubrovnik area, how about Villa Belvedere, set in a quiet spot overlooking the Adriatic? Four apartments sleeping up to 15 guests, and a large dining and socialising space – perfect!

On the Split Riviera, have a look at one of the new Cinquento villas that sleep 12, for example Villa Cinquento 2 has two x 3 bedroom apartments sharing a heated pool, or Villa Cinquento 4 has three x 2 bedroom apartments sharing a pool; based on a development of just five villas, all these large Split villas have boat mooring and have 24/7 access to the on-site gym.

If budgets are a little tighter, Villa Zelen at Okrug Gornji, has three self contained apartments (sleeping up to 12) sharing a pool and children’s play area.

Up the coast from Split at Rogoznica near Primosten, you’ll find Villa Bianco with four apartments sharing a pool and everything else you’d expect at a villa, and sleeping up to 15 guests.

In a super location in Sumartin on Brac island (just a 50 minute ferry hop from Split old town), Villa Reflection is a large group villa, actually formed of two new self-contained, well-equipped 3 double bedroom villas, sharing a pool, all within walking distance of beaches restaurants and a shop.

Just outside Sumartin, but close to a couple of restaurants, is 6 bedroom Villa Tika, which sleeps up to 15. It has three apartments plus a large dining and socialising area, and of course a large pool.

Coming soon to our website is beachside Villa Ciello at Orebic on the Peljesac peninsula which is up the coast from Dubrovnik. Sleeping 16 in 8 double bedrooms, this villa is split into two wings, with a central cooking/dining/living area. There is of course a pool and several terraces and also informal gathering areas with gazebos in the garden, with paths leading down to the beach – nice!

We do have other ideas for large groups so do ask for advice or have a look on our villa search page, but if you don’t find what you want there, also look at our On Request only villa collection.
