Nor are they favoured only by families with children - although indeed this demographic undoubtedly accounts for a large portion of the Spanish villa rental market.

Indeed Spanish holiday villas are becoming an increasingly viable option for all types of holidaymakers, in particular those travelling from Britain who are feeling the pinch of the credit crunch.

Spanish holiday villas are also popular properties to rent for those who are perhaps not feeling the effects of the credit crunch as much as others, such as celebrities.
