Does next year mark a milestone birthday or anniversary? Or perhaps you need no reason for a celebration other than the sheer pleasure of grabbing a holiday with your oldest friends. Either way, now that the summer’s over and the kids are back at school, if you are thinking about planning a big group holiday for 2019, this is the ideal time to set the wheels in motion.

Book now to eliminate the stress of finally agreeing on a villa, only to find it’s unavailable on the dates that you want! Once you’ve picked the perfect villa for your party, we’ll do as much as you want us to do, organising maid and chef service and, if you wish, private tours.

Need inspiration? Take a look at some of our most popular large group villas with pools.

One celebration, two pools

The layout at Villa Antica Aia Resort, with its two adjacent villas, is a popular choice for a mixed group of families and couples. Both villas have their own garden and pool which makes staying here more like holidaying in your own private 13-bedroom hotel. Idle away the hours alongside one of the two pools, amidst sprawling lawns and shady verandas, or make tracks for the clear water and powder-soft sand at the nearby beaches.
