People like to congregate with extended families over Christmas and perhaps invite friends who may be alone for Christmas. Modern houses and apartments simply do not have the space to allow for a large dining table and a crowd of people. One option is to rent a large house for Christmas and invite your guests to it. These lucky guests would arrive to a house decked with Christmas decorations, a tree and sit down to a festive lunch that they haven't had to prepare. That's festive heaven.

New Year is another occasion that demands a large party house and plenty of friends. This does not have to be a choice limited to the wealthy, a group of friends could share the costs and have a great time together over New Year. One of the big advantages of self-catering at New Year is that alcoholic drinks are bought in at supermarket prices. Let's have a party.

Party time can be any time of year if you have a special birthday or anniversary. Rather than paying for hotel accommodation, guests can pay their portion of a holiday rental and make their money go further. Although large houses are in high demand at Christmas and New Year, it is far easier to find a suitable house at other times and there should be a wider choice.
