Winners of the 2012 Photo Contest

Selecting winners gets harder each year. This year we chose the finalists and engaged everyone's help on Facebook to determine the winner. All of your entries were truly wonderful, as each one uniquely sums up the villa rental experience in an inspiring way. A heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in the contest. Scrolling through this gallery of photos, leaves everyone with a "feel good" vibe. Whether it's the fun-filled images that bring a smile to your face or the reflective moments that create a much needed sense of peace and calm, everyone can relate to these special moments caught on camera. Thanks again for sharing them.
