I'm in the process of booking for next years summer hols. We're a family of five (3 kids) and we mostly go self catering. We've been lookng at villas, some of which appear to be in beautiful locations, but having read some of the artices around on the net (and on the Tripadvisor forums) I'm starting to wonder whether a private villa is a good move, due to the possibility of violent attack. Although I take on board advice about not going to remote beaches alone, not walking at night, what worries me is being a sitting duck in a private villa.
Any advice about locations to book, do we need to book a villa in a secure 'compound', whether to book at all, help!
