I absolutely love a villa holiday. My family (mum, dad, brother, sister-in-law, husband and kids!) and I try to go away as a group every other year, and have visited some top notch villas in Portugal, France and Spain.
I love the freedom you get with a villa, which is especially true if you have small children; tuck them in bed at night, and you can still chill by the pool/bar outside in your own private villa, within hearing distance of the little ones. This is so much more preferable than lying on a bed in a hotel room, with the TV on mute, reading subtitles and trying to be quiet!
A holiday to me means relaxing; I’m not into travelling around, seeing the sights/long bike rides/hidden coves kind of girl. I go on holiday to switch off, and that’s exactly what I do. Well, I switch off from the everyday chores/bill-paying/work mode – you never switch off from Mum Mode! And what better place than this lovely villa in Ibiza to chill out in; luxury for the adults, with plenty of open-plan space to keep an eye on the kids.
With all that relaxing around the pool, how much do you need to pack? I must confess to you that I am a GREAT packer. I pack light when I go away, with as many mix and match outfits as possible (mostly to avoid paying for hold baggage…!) I went on a long weekend to Majorca in May, and managed to fit everything I needed into my carry-on bag; I was very proud of myself, and had plenty of different outfits to wear.

My ultimate holiday outfit would be this super cute playsuit, teamed with the statement necklace, black wedge espadrilles and straw sunhat (I am on holiday, after all!)
I can imagine relaxing of an evening with my family, sitting by the pool in the perfect villa in Ibiza, sipping a cocktail or 2 and feeling glamourous; it would be a world away from normal day-to-day life!
And with plenty more outfits in your capsule wardrobe, you can change the look completely the next day; each piece can be worn in more than one way.
