- Introduction - I've been with my parents on a number of holidays that were booked through James Villas and so I feel I am quite familiar with the company, certainly in terms of the type of holidays you get through them anyway. We've been to a number of different places through the years, from a...

EFROSONI II Coral Bay, Cyprus First off, I should say that I have no connection with James Villas or the owner or anyone else connected with the holiday we took at this villa. So, having got that over with, here are some of the things you need to know about a holiday at this villa. We stayed for...

Prowonderful property

Consterrifying access road

James Villas had a strong advertising campaign over the last 2 years and, after a very happy holiday with them to Mallorca in 2004, we decided to book a week in Tuscany for the end of August 2008. The website is very informative and we decided on our accommodation - Villa Podere Il Renaio in...

Propackage holiday

ConsLow value for money and bad customer relations

Initially we wanted to book our package via the internet. However the flights on the site were either extremely unsociable hours (departure 5am etc) or you missed both ends because you arrived past midnight and left the villa around 6am the last day. Finally we rung an agent who seemed to have...

ConsCharter Flights!

A long time a go we toyed with the idea of going away and booking a private villa, but decided it was probably going to be too expensive. Then one rainy summer’s afternoon, some surfing brought up James Villas website. We put in a few figures and realised that for 4 people, we could have a very...

Oh, it's that time of year again, when most of us sit day dreaming thinking of faraway places. Well to be honest, I daydream all the time. I actually work for a travel company who specialise in boating holiday in the UK, but whilst I appreciate they like this type of thing, my choice is somewhere...

ConsUnfortunately most things.

Have been reading other reviews with interest. Wow. We must have been unlucky. The reviews are so good and in so much detail that they almost could have been written by James Villa holidays (joke) My wife, 3 children and mother and father in law and myself of course took a 2 week holiday to...

I booked the Villa Oliva through James Villa Holidays believing it to be a quality organisation. Nothing was further than the truth. The villa in Guadalamina on a golf course on the Costa del Sol proved to be a great mistake in the opinion of myself and 8 members of my family. I reported to James...

We have just returned from our second JV holiday this year (Lanzarote in January), to Pollensa in Majorca. This was, again, a great holiday at a very reasonable price at around £1100 for everything including villa, flights and car hire. Once again, we found booking to be easy and painless, via...

We wanted to go somewhere warmer than the UK in February 2004, so we decided to go to Cyprus. There was a special offer on Queens Paradise 6, so we chose this one. The online photo was cleverly shot so that the rest of the villas in the development did not look as close as they were. Alright...
