It has been brought to my attention that there are people who have never ever had to search for a Last-Minute Villa.
There are people who book their annual summer family holidays a year ahead. For some it’s because time off work needs to be meticulously planned and family schedules organised. For others it’s just a natural progression for an organised mind (Oh how I wish I was one of *those* people).
Other people book at the start of the year, easing the January Blues with a spot of sunshine dreaming and planning. I totally understand those ones.
And then there’s the third kind. My kind. People with flexible schedules and a rather indecisive turn of brain.
For us, the school holidays have started and we’re probably still thinking about what to do with that week in August…
I was just meandering through Clickstay, like you do, and happened across some honestly amazing properties which still have August availability. To help you out I’ve shortlisted my favourites here… if you have an open week in August I strongly suggest you take a look before someone else nabs them.
Last-Minute Villa Stays for August 2017
(Everyone has different needs, so I searched for basic staple requirements; family of four, private pool and WiFi. Try a different search if those aren’t necessary requirements for your own family holidays)
Just look at this stunning villa in Maras, Dalyan, with magnificent Rock Tombs views.
This spacious villa has 4 en-suite double bedrooms, with a large lounge/kitchen/diner on the ground floor and a Turkish Salon/lounge on the first floor of the villa which extends onto the large colonial balcony overlooking the magnificent Rock Tombs.
Perfect for larger or combined family stays, Zeytin Koru comfortably sleeps up to 10, with an additional 2 infants. The villa layout makes it quite flexible, ideal for two families sharing or for three generations of one family for a very special holiday. It’s generous balconies and shaded areas make it an ideal choice for the heat of a Turkish summer.
