Why Go Private?<
Benefits of renting a private holiday home over a hotel
Spend less, enjoy more<
Private holiday rentals offer exceptional value for money and are one of the most cost effective solutions for your holiday. With a private rental you can save up to 50% compared to the average family hotel stay so you're free to spend the saving on enjoying yourself! And, with great accommodation at affordable prices, you can afford real luxury for less.
A space to call your own<
When you stay in a private holiday rental, you'll never have to worry about being disturbed by hotel staff so you can enjoy your holiday in total privacy. And since you're not restricted to a single hotel room, you'll have plenty of space to spread out and enjoy your family time together. When night falls, you can tuck the kids up in bed and claim the evening for yourselves knowing they're sleeping safe and sound upstairs.
Make your own schedule<
With a private holiday rental, you choose to enjoy your holiday, your way. Unlike with a package deal, there are no restrictive check in times, dining options or tour schedules – you tailor your itinerary to suit you and your family. From choosing the attractions you want to visit, the restaurants you want to dine in and the experiences you want to have – you're free to come and go as you please.
The choice is yours<
With such a wide range of properties available, you set your own wish list. Whether you want your own private pool so the kids can splash around safely or outdoor dining so you can enjoy a family evening around the BBQ – the choice is yours. From luxuries such as a private pool or jacuzzi to everyday comforts such as satellite TV or internet access – we'll have the perfect property to match your needs.
Get all your friends and family together<
Want to enjoy a getaway where there's space for everyone? Whether you're thinking of a New Years Eve with friends in the city, or a family reunion at an idyllic country retreat – private holiday rentals offer plenty space and privacy for the whole party to get together, whatever the occasion. And what's more, the larger the group, the lower the cost per head, so private holiday rentals offer great value group holidays.
Share the perfect family meal<
Flexible dining options are one of the many benefits of a private holiday rental. You can cater to your own family's tastes by creating mouth-watering meals, cooked with the freshest ingredients from the local markets – or choose to escape the cooking completely and enjoy regional delicacies in the best local restaurants. Even if it's just somewhere to make tea & toast in the morning, your own kitchen is invaluable.
Great for the whole family, even your dog!<
Private rentals can be the perfect solution for pet lovers. With plenty of pet friendly rentals to choose from across the UK and beyond, you'll not only be able to enjoy a great holiday for the whole family but save money on expensive kennel fees and rest assured your pet is safe and sound.

The Grantourismo Project<
At HomeAway we are strong advocates of renting holiday homes. Between us, we have stayed in an impressive number of properties, discovering for ourselves the benefits of staying in a private home instead of a hotel. Having more space and privacy; the option to come and go as you please or simply kick back and relax; cooking up a local treat and generally enjoying a more authentic holiday experience.
Whatever type of holiday you’re looking for, and whatever type of home, there will be something to suit. Why settle for just a room when you can have so much more?
What is The Grantourismo Project?<
It is our mission, along with seasoned travel-writing and globe-trotting duo Lara Dunston &Terry Carter, to help more people discover this unique and liberating way of travelling. Although many people have been holidaying in private rentals for years, many are still to try it and yet it caters so well for the millions of travellers today who are looking for a more experiential, more involving holiday.
