Why book a private and secluded villa?

Sit back and imagine the heat of the sun on your skin, the slight breeze of warm air swaying the palm trees, the tranquillity and quiet, with only the gentle noise of trickling water permeating the air as you gently kick your feet backwards-and-forwards in your own private swimming pool. Jump in and take a swim with no one to disturb you. There is no need for a costume if you choose a private and secluded villa that is not overlooked (www.secludedescapes.com). Feel the freedom and relaxation as you swim, then return to your own choice of sun lounger, take a sip of your drink and relax without a care or a worry – no one around to bother you.

Sounds idyllic doesn’t it. Close your eyes and hold this image in your mind – imagine yourself laying there. Heavenly.

Now picture yourself at a hotel, on a sunbed, surrounded by other people. This is the same sunbed you had to put your towel on at sunrise to mark as yours for the day. You’re hot and need to cool off in the swimming pool. You hide your valuables and head to the pool! You step around people and queue at the steps to get in for a quick swim. You dodge people and the splashes. You keep peering back at your sunbed to make sure your phone and money hasn’t been stolen and that your sunbed hasn’t been taken!

You get my point! Having your own private and secluded villa, your own pool and your own space is a special type of holiday and there are villas that offer this special experience for a range of budgets. It really is a no-brainer. So what are the other great reasons to book a Secluded and Private villa?

Your own space

Having your own space on a villa holiday allows you to enjoy your holiday however YOU would like. There is no need to queue and you will have no worries about your security or annoyance from other people. You can choose your hotel, but not the people you have to share it with. You will free yourself from the constant awareness of others and the security of your valuables.

Private and Secluded Villas that aren’t overlooked provide perfect privacy. This is appealing to those that like privacy on their holiday without the bother or prying eyes of others, allowing them to get away from it all, switch off and holiday however they want to.

Naturism and your first experience

Some people grow up in naturism and others find naturism later in life. Regardless of when you discover it, there is always a first time.

Your first experience of naturism can be a daunting one. Whilst you may be comfortable being naked in your own surroundings, being naked in the presence of others and taking that first step can be a nail-biting experience.

In my previous role as the Youth Officer for British Naturism, I have introduced so many people to naturism helping and supporting them to overcome those initial nerves. Ironically, being the only clothed person in the presence of other naturists can equally be an unsettling feeling, which itself helps with motivation to take that first step.

What goes through a person’s mind at that moment?

It can be a variety of reasons and are individual to each person. For some it can be the unfamiliar sensation of being naked outside, the thought that others may stare at you, or maybe the anxieties from beliefs about body image and appearance may take hold.

Whatever the cause of the initial apprehension, once that step has been taken, in so many cases these feelings of anxiety are replaced by elation and then ease and relaxation. So many people look back and can’t believe the worry they felt in the lead up to their first experience ,wishing they had tried it sooner. Soon after it becomes so normal and a natural way of life. Such experiences are made easier with so many naturists being genuine, understanding, caring and accepting people – these traits run throughout true naturism and is what makes our way of life very special and unique.

What is the best way to start?

Having introduced so many people to naturism and helping them with their first experiences, I’ve learnt what can help. I’ve found the best way is to join a group of naturists at a social event (clothed), such as the pub. Getting to know a group of naturist friends first and by finding how nice naturists typically are, this can help allay some of those jitters and your first naturist experience will be amongst new life-long friends. Remember, everyone is unique, and all bodies are natural, yours is no different and naturists do not stare or judge.

I can promise that once you have taken your first step you will never look back.
