It’s a nerve-racking game booking a villa for the summer. The ultra-cautious with large families leap into the market in September securing their ideal house for the following August. They pay a premium but at least they are guaranteed their choice of houses. Come June, the discounting starts. Even the very best villas will have the odd un-booked week, which to secure a booking they are willing to discount. Here’s our selection of some of the best properties still on the market from agencies. Holiday hunters should also check the larger owner websites such as – www.ownersdirect.co.uk , VRBO , and holidaylettings.co.uk , where offers also begin to appear at this time of year.
