One in ten people living in Europe are planning to go on holiday this summer, according to a new survey published this month.
The poll carried out by Ipsos for insurers Europ Assistance revealed that 60 per cent of those questions said they planned to, or had already booked their summer holiday.
This statistic comes after ‘three years of decline or stagnation’, with a six per cent increase on the number of people taking holidays in 2015 than in the previous year.
Europeans are also spending more on holiday, too with the average holiday budget increasing to 2,390 euros – some 180 euros more than last year, the survey also revealed.
Not surprisingly the dream destination is still the sea, in resorts such as Saint Tropez, with 62 per cent of those interviews saying they planned a beach holiday this year.
So if you are one of those who plan to holiday in Europe this summer but who have not yet found a place to stay, we have the perfect villa for you in Les Parcs de Saint Tropez, a resort which often leads the polls as one of the most popular summer destinations.
Villa Kalliste is the perfect home from home for a large family or group of friends looking for accommodation near the beach – but not too far from the bars and restaurants of Saint Tropez.
With five bedrooms and five bathrooms, a large swimming pool and spacious gardens, it offers the perfect setting for a truly unforgettable holiday.
The recently built villa is located in a prestigious secure domain called Les Parcs de St Tropez which is just a short walk from the famous beaches of Saint Tropez and a 4km drive from the centre of town.
One of the most delightful features of this dream property is its vast contemporary living room with floor to ceiling sliding doors which lead out onto a huge covered terrace – ideal for eating al fresco during those long summer evenings.
