Food, entertainment and special needs are easily handled in the home-like atmosphere of a scenic cottage or a luxury property with heated pools, Jacuzzis, plush bathrooms, acres of manicured gardens – things that you've only seen in shows like Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.

Here are some of the options available:

Creme de la creme: Top of the range opulence with plush interiors, extensive grounds, private beach/pool, designer furnishings and decor, heavily staffed, climate control, specialist chefs, butlers, masseur or maid service. Limousine service, horse-riding are some other options available. At a fat price, of course!

Family: Child and/or pet-friendly. Priority is safety, hygiene and an informal atmosphere, with entertainments for kids and teens, baby-sitting, family activities like barbecues. Usually self-catering, located close to urban areas, with easy access to supermarkets, medical facilities, restaurants.
