An apartment by the sea, a ski chalet, a cabin in the countryside... When it comes to holidaymaking, each and every one of us has his or her own needs, preferences and dreams to honour, and the amount of money put aside for the purpose varies from person to person.  A solo traveller's aspirations are, clearly, different from those of a couple travelling with a baby, or of a single parent with teenage kids, or a family contemplating a vacation that would bring together its three generations under one roof. 
Each traveler category needs some specific type of accommodation, and there is a certain set of services to meet travel style's requirement.

Family holidays

Spending quality time with one's family to share the present moment and make some beautiful memories together...
An easily adjustable vacation programme will be built based on the age of family members. This often proves to be a good premise for narrowing down the choice of next holiday's destination by resolving the all too common seaside-vs.-mountains dilemma, as well as for picking out an appropriate accommodation style. The idea is, of course, to try and make everyone happy - by squeezing in a whole variety of activities so that each member's tastes could be taken into account. In organising a perfect holiday for a family with young children, the main challenge will be to ensure a carefree stay, with all basic things pre-arranged and no need upon arrival to spend time looking for accommodation or entertainment options. All you've got to do then is to follow the roadmap, savouring every moment of your journey. 

For family sojourn, an apartment or a house to rent are, perhaps, the optimum type of accommodation. Such lodgings are usualy spacious enough, and come with a kitchen and, quite often, a garden.

Vacationing with friends

For two friends or a band of buddies, holidays are a time for sharing, for joy, for discoveries, for doing things together, for trying out new foods... And, of course, for chilling out...

This travel format has at least one obvious economic advantage: When you choose to go on holiday with a friend rather than on your own,  chances are that the two of you will feel quite comfortable sharing a twin room. With the per-person rate normally lower than a single room's, this option will save you and your roommate some money, which could instead be spent on some additional fun activities, restaurant meals, etc. or just be put aside for future investment.

 To give you an example, if the price of a twin room (with 2 separate beds) is €30 per night, each person will have to spend just €15 (or €120 for an eight-night stay).

Choice of accommodation 

I was based in Greece for as long as 20 years. During that time, I travelled all over the country and into the neighboring Republic of Macedonia, looking out for optimum hospitality offers* in terms of: 
 Location (good view, quiet, convenient for amenities... or, on the contrary, far from everything);
 Quality of accommodation (spaciousness, decoration, fresh furniture, etc.);
Cleanliness (I may be something of a neat freak, but in my profession it's an asset, actually. And it does work, with my clients often saying in their feedback comments that they found the lodgings I had recommended to them impeccably clean and therefore didn't have to spend their first day on vacation putting things in order;
 Good hosts (efficiency, friendliness, and -- most importantly -- integrity).

*All very comfortable, some with a character, the lodgings on offer are sure to make a perfect environment for any traveller's well-being, rest and relaxation.

Disabled travelers

For everyone, finding the ideal accommodation where to spend holidays is a source of much questioning (it must be suitable for all members of the family) and research (rent abroad can prove to be a real adventure). The quality of accommodation depends on its location, the style of accommodation (size, layout, decoration ...) and related services (reception, hygiene). It is the biggest budget of the holidays and it is often this who determines the success of the stay. Indeed, a hotel room, an apartment or a house, must be a comfortable, functional place, where the travelers rest. For people with reduced mobility, the often forgotten factor is the location of the rental. Because a room or an apartment equipped especially for their needs can be disappointing if the environment is not suitable. What's the point of renting a flat if you want to go down to the beach, you have to go down a lot of stairs or if you want to eat in the small restaurant of the area, you have to climb a highway? This is why it is necessary, even imperative, to choose accommodation according to its interior but also according to its external situation, in order to make the most of the place visited and ensure a pleasant stay.
