The benefits of a self-catering holiday

When choosing holiday accommodation, it can become confusing with all the choice available. Trying to find someone that meets your budget and caters to everyone’s needs can prove tricky. Self-catering holidays offer great value for money and have some real advantages over staying in a hotel and here’s why:

  1. More like home

If you’re travelling with family or friends who have special dietary needs, self-catering accommodation makes it easier for you to cook what you want and when you want. Modern self-catering apartments and villas have all the mod-cons, making it easy for you to control portion size, cooking methods and choose your own ingredients. Travelling with a baby is easier in self-catering accommodation as you can prepare and store bottles and food for whenever your child needs it.

  1. More freedom

When you’re not bound by hotel schedules and eating times, you can come and go as you please. Whether you want to relax completely or spend every day out on excursions, you don’t have to be tied to set meal times. Everything can be done at your own pace. If you want a lie-in, you don’t need to worry about missing breakfast. For Kas Villas in Turkey, visit

  1. Value for money

Self-catering holidays tend to be far better value for money than staying in a hotel, particularly if you’re travelling in a large group or as a family. Booking a hotel for a group would require paying for multiple rooms, whereas apartments and villas are available with a wide range of bedroom numbers. Shopping for ingredients and choosing what you eat can also save you money. Of course, you always have the option to eat out at a local restaurant whenever you feel like it.

  1. More space

When you book self-catered accommodation you often have considerably more space than you’d get with a hotel room. This can be a great option for larger groups and you don’t need to be in each other’s’ hair all the time either. There will be separate bedrooms, living rooms, dining rooms and optional en-suites and second bathrooms. Other useful amenities include balconies, patio decking areas, barbecues and even a pool if you want one.

  1. Greater flexibility

Whether it’s relaxed meal times, the chance to do your own laundry, save money by sharing a larger property or the desire for a bigger living space, self-catering accommodation offers far more flexibility than booking to stay in a hotel.
