Capitalize on last-minute summer deals on villa vacations in Europe when booking a property through lavish Sanctuary Retreats. With rates on private villa rentals now reduced up to 30 percent off, this swank collection of properties in France, Croatia, Spain, Italy, and beyond are pleasantly priced within reach. In fact, for group travel, be it an extended family getaway or a rowdy reunion with friends, the cost per person, per night for the luxe villa rentals is often times a downright bargain when compared to rates at high-end hotels.
Case in point: Round up six couples to fill Sanctuary Casa in Saint Tropez, France (pictured above) and receive a 25 percent discount on last-minute bookings made for travel between August 15 and August 29. That works out to just about 224 per person, per night for a 7-day stay (based on full occupancy). Not bad for your own two-story, six-bedroom villa with sensational views of the bay at Saint Tropez from the in-ground pool, and easy access to the beach to bask in the Mediterranean sun! Or, opt to gather the gang for a stay at Sanctuary Château les Tours, a 13th-century medieval château in Saussignac, France. It boasts five rooms that can lodge up to eight adults and four children at rates that are up to 30 percent off (working out to about 56 per person, per night for a weeklong stay). Other deals are on offer, too act quickly and you can still make this summer one for the history books!
