Despite the global situation derived from the covid-19 virus, we can say that the islands of Ibiza and Formentera have known how to offer a safe destination for all those who have decided not to let this virus spoil their holidays. The rents of the villas on the two islands have remained stable and even increased during the opening months, with preference over hotels or apartments where more people are concentrated and therefore the risk of contagion increases.
It’s quite clear that villas will be a popular option for those that wish to have a holiday next year. The very nature of a villa means you can remain fairly isolated from strangers, and also that are well suited to families and larger groups that want to spend time together after months apart. So, When should you book your 2021 holiday? The sooner, the better. Keep in mind that some of the confirmed reservations for this year have been carried over to next year so some of the villas may no longer be available for your period. On the other hand, the demand will be much higher than this year, so it will be only a question of who found the villa before.
