Villa Select has expanded its portfolio of self-catering rental villas to include properties in Madeira and mainland Greece for the first time.

A total of 13 new villas have been introduced in Madeira, sleeping between five and ten guests each and all with access to either a private or a shared swimming pool.

Choices include the three sister villas Casa Xavier, Casa Tiago and Villa Torres, each accommodating six guests and within 50m of a quiet pebble beach in Calheta.

For larger groups, Casa do Carlos sleeps ten guests and is close to the centre of Madeira’s capital, Funchal. Along with leisure facilities including table tennis, table football, a pool table and fitness equipment, a stand-out feature of Casa do Carlos is the heated indoor pool which can be used year-round. On the outskirts of Garajau, the ten-person Villa Terra has sea views from the terraced garden and is accessible for a wheelchair user.

Halkidiki sees the introduction of five new properties in the Hanioti area. Here, the one-bedroom Villa Ormylia would suit a couple on a romantic break, with a private pool, whirlpool and sauna along with daily housekeeping and a welcome basket including wine and fruit.

The largest villa in the cluster is Villa Sane, which sleeps eight across four bedrooms. Guests at any of the Halkidiki properties have access to a shared spa offering an indoor salt water thalassotherapy swimming pool, gym and beauty and massage treatments (at an additional cost).

The company's brand manager, Becci Aldridge, said: “With the introduction of these villas in Madeira and Halkidiki, we now have the biggest choice of properties available year-round. “Temperatures in both destinations remain pleasant throughout the winter months, with flights available beyond just the peak summer season. We’re now taking bookings to Madeira and Halkidiki for autumn 2017 and beyond and look forward to offering rentals in both destinations throughout the whole of 2018.”
