Has anyone ever booked a villa holiday in Florida? Looking to organise a family holiday for 8 of us next year, so cheaper to hire a villa than get a hotel and was wondering if anyone knew any good companies?

Despite the TF lack of help I have booked somewhere <diva>

5 bed villa with pool for £1,500 for a fortnight which doesn't seem bad. 8 of us going.

Accommodation for less than £200pp for a fortnight so ideal. Only a 25 min drive from Disney too.

Going to Portugal in a few weeks, flying to Faro then making our way up to Porto via Lisbon. Any recommendations for other places we could visit?

Yeah, I was in Lisbon last year but it was quite a brief visit and have been wanting to go back ever since.

Are you hiring a car or reliant on public transport?

Sintra outside Lisbon is well worth a visit. Views are stunning.

Coimbra is half way between Lisbon and Porto so well worth a nights stay.

From Porto, head up the Douro river valley.

Went about 7 years ago. Went to a few safari destinations then Tanzania. Didn't do any of the beaches though.

Yeah it will be amazing round there. Make sure you get downtown as well though - I love the West Village and TriBeCa and all that, so many nice restaurants and bars.

Thanks gents <gent> Very much open to suggestions. I'm there for the best part of 8 days so should be able to cram a fair amount of stuff in.
