When you are booking a holiday it is always essential that the accommodation you book is perfect for you and your family. Before you book accommodation, make sure that you do thorough research into the area and the accommodation itself. This research could include looking at review sites where you can read what other holiday makers have made of it. Travel Maestro has kindly compiled the following list that gives you a list of holiday accommodation options:

  • Yurts – In this modern day and age, camping has begun to become more glamorous as opposed to sleeping rough for a few days. Yurts are the way forward when it comes to camping as it provides some of the comforts that are found in your own home including, separate bedrooms, hobs and even plumbing! Yurts are perfect for the whole family and the experience is bound to be one that you will never forget.
  • Holiday Cottages – This type of accommodation is perfect for both couples and families, more so for families as these cottages usually have plenty of bedrooms. Luxury cottages can be usually found in the beautiful countryside away from the hustle and bustle that the city usually brings.
  • Holiday Villa – Villas are great for families as you can let your kids run wild by the pool whilst also having a relaxing time out to relax and rejuvenate. If you are wise about it, you can usually find plenty of deals on villas online on several sites. As well as families, villas are also ideal for friends as they are usually away from nearby housing, so you can make as much noise as you want.
  • Hotels – Hotels are usually cheap and easy to book at short notice. Make sure you are careful though as not all hotels are the same. Once again, make use of any review sites that you can look at that will indicate whether the hotel is up to your standards. Another thing to bear in mind is the location of the hotel. Make sure that it is nearby to local transport links and close to entertainment.

    When I travel, I love to stay in my barge and enjoy its comfort. The wind coming from the river is also refreshing and the sound of the waters makes everything perfect.

    Dear James,

    This is a very nice post , well informed and correctly organised.
    I am curious to know are there any Bed and breakfasts in Sweden for the travelers.

    Kind regards
    Clive Viz


    I would also stay in my barge like you Tom, if I did own one! Sounds absolutely fantastic to travel that way :-)

    …and I loved to read a bit about it at your blog too. (We also were in Champagne this summer actually).


    I’m glad you liked our guest post author and I’ll answer your question about B&B’s in Sweden instead of James. Yes, we do have B&B’s in Sweden nowadays, it has been growing during the latest years, but perhaps not as much as in other countries.

    When I travel with my family, we usually stay in some holiday villa. But it’s totally different from the type of holiday I prefer. The best is just to pack your stuff and go… on foot, by train, by hitchhiking… and sleep anywhere… on the grass, on the train station. If you’re lucky, someone maybe invites you to his house, make a dinner… I travelled by hitchhiking two weeks and it happened to me twice in this time! People are very nice, more than you expect. :)

    These are great travel accommodation ideas. Couchsurfing is another option to consider these days. host for travellers in London

    Very nice post. I own some villas in Greece at Trikala Korinthias. Families prefer them as you write in your post, mainly for their kids. In my opinion, hotels can be very expensive sometimes too, according to their facilities etc. But if i had a family, i would choose villas for sure


    It is quite true that we spend a huge part of our budget on accommodation while travelling. So finding a cheap place to stay is necessary if you want to save some bucks. Thanks!
