There can be no denying that a holiday, by definition, is all about escaping the trappings of normal life. We can toil and trudge our way through the year, focusing on paying bills and meeting deadlines, but our holiday is something we have deservedly earned. For many, the common package holiday suits just fine, but this is not the case for everyone. The more discerning prefer tailor made holidays that serve up exactly what is needed.Whether it is heading to some far flung corner of the world, to white sand tropical paradises in exotic lands, or whether it is heading to the mountains for its crisp clean air and snow covered slopes, it is possible to get practically whatever holiday is desired. For example, holiday makers can stay at luxury ski chalets in the French Alps, take in some skiing and enjoy the famous Alpine views. Alternatively, for those more interested in sun and surf, but unhappy with the standards of public resorts and package deals, one can take advantage of luxury villa holidays. Through the mixture of privacy, luxury and pampering that these holidays provide, the whole experience is simply far superior.
Winter Holiday PossibilitiesIt might seem that a tailored winter holiday is more limited in terms of range, but this is actually untrue. The whole basis of the concept is quality, rather than quantity and the rat race that surrounds it, is concentrated upon. So, the first part of considering a winter holiday is what kind of experience is desired. There are professional holiday agencies that go far and beyond the typical high street travel agency. Their job is not to simply book the flights and hotel, but also to provide a higher degree of service. So, a chalet maintained to the highest 5 star standards is a certainty. Typically, these chalets house between 4 and 16 people, allowing groups of varying sizes to stay together, a logical preference to those who travel with friends and family and want to enjoy their company. The contemporary design of the chalets guarantees comfort, while modern facilities, like jacuzzis, steam rooms, home cinema and games systems, means entertainment and luxury are equally guaranteed. But even more significant is the fact that these holidays also include personal staff, such as a dedicated house keeping team, nannies provided to look after children, and even an on site chef producing exquisite cuisine to greet the group when they return from a day on the slopes.Summer Holiday PossibilitiesFor those who prefer the exoticism of sun drenched beaches, there are equally impressive choices available. For example, it is possible for a holidaying party to stay at luxury villas overlooking the white sand beaches of Sri Lanka. These villas have everything that one could possibly want, to make the experience a magical one, from infinity pools that seem to stretch out into the Indian Ocean, to fresh green lawns littered with mature coconut trees, to onsite spa treatments and excellent cuisine arranged by a dedicated concierge. But staying at a villa is only part of it, with a range of excursions and activities also specially arranged to enhance the experience of being abroad with friends and family. Whether the guests want to visit national parks to view wildlife, or go scuba diving to see the coloured variety of marine life in the area, these trips can easily be arranged.
Culture is what sets different areas of the world apart, and getting close to local culture is often an essential part of the experience for guests. Thankfully, there is little difficulty in having visits to age old temples and other cultural sites in the area organised. This is the great advantage with tailor made holidays. The luxury of the accommodation, the culture and exoticism of the particular corner of the world, is not simply bought, but is fully experienced. There are no preset activity timetables, with activities swamped by a hundred other guests. Instead, there is freedom, independence and choice. So, with bespoke luxury villa holidays, the dream of floating in peace on an infinity pool is standard, while for those who prefer a break on the slopes, staffed luxury ski chalets ensure their stay is everything they could dream of too. Quality, rather than quantity, always provides a greater experience.
