LakesideThere are few things on earth that beat a holiday surrounded by like-minded friends. Group holidays, with their broad casts of colourful characters, are always unforgettable experiences; but they also promise a very practical benefit: by spreading the cost of a holiday over many heads, you can really keep prices down. In fact, this is one of the best ways to enjoy special interest tourism, as it allows you to spend less money on accommodation, and more on your chosen activities. With activity-oriented holidays especially, taking a large group allows you the option of splitting into teams of similar ability, so no one's left out and everyone enjoys themselves.

 

So what do you want to look for when booking accommodation for larger groups? Perhaps the first rule to remember is that you'll want to balance the enjoyment of each others' company with the peace of a little rest-and-recharge privacy. And that's where the large holiday villa comes into play: with the amenities and space for even large groups of holidaymakers, these accommodation options marry the efficiency of hotels with the intimacy, comfort and quirk that only private rentals can offer. So, whether yours is a large family, or a special interest group on retreat, know HomeAway can help you find the perfect home from home.
