How can I find the perfect villa holiday?

Before you start planning your next adventure check the arrival day of the destination you have in mind, as they can vary. This will ease your search too.

How do I book my flights, villa and car hire together?

Our custom trip tool is easy to navigate and provides total flexibility. Select each of the icons in turn and you'll be intuitively taken through the steps to book your flights, villa and car hire together. When you're searching for a villa, just add the number of people in your party, rather than how many rooms you require – this can be left as '1' room. You can then filter your search to find all available villas that fit.

Do I need to hire a car?

We would always recommend hiring a car on villa holidays, some of our villas will indicate car hire essential, others highlight where a car is advisory, however you may still find a car beneficial.

Villa holidays FAQs

Is there a minimum age for making a booking?

You must be at least 21 years old to book James Villas accommodation. The person making the booking will become the lead passenger and must travel on the holiday.

Where will I collect the keys to my accommodation?

Details regarding your key collection will be emailed to you 14 - 21 days before your travel date. Collection points do vary depending on the destination and the accommodation you are travelling to.

Can we check-in to the accommodation before 4pm on the day of arrival?

The official check-in time for your accommodation is 16:00 local time. The cleaners have sole access to the accommodation until this time to prepare for your arrival, therefore entry to the accommodation prior to this time will not be permitted.

Can we check out of the accommodation later than the confirmed time of 10am?

Unfortunately this is not possible as the accommodation will need to be cleaned and prepared for the next guest.

Will there be any assistance in resort?

You have chosen a private villa holiday and we intend to respect your privacy. However, should you require assistance in any way; someone will be close at hand. In many areas there is a Resort Manager and/or Representative(s). Should you need anything; a Representative will be available 7 days a week. You must report any problems affecting your holiday to the resort staff, so that we are allowed the opportunity to take remedial action and help you enjoy the rest of your holiday. In destinations where no representative visit is available, or if you decline this service, please check your travel documents where local contact numbers can be found should you need assistance.

Will I need a car?

We would always recommend hiring a car when you book a villa. To help you decide James Villa accommodation is classified as Car Essential, Car Advised or Car Optional in the relevant villa description.

  • Car Essential – you will require a car to reach supermarkets, restaurants and other amenities.
  • Car Advised – there are a few amenities within walking distance, although some amenities will require a car to get to.
  • Car Optional – the property is within walking distance of supermarkets or minimarkets, shops, restaurants and other amenities.

Are the kitchens fully equipped?

Kitchens include hob, oven/micro oven, fridge/fridge freezer, basic cooking utensils, iron, ironing board, cutlery and crockery. Some properties have additional facilities. These will be indicated in the relevant villa description where available. Please note cleaning products or materials are not generally provided and condiments or leftover food supplies are usually removed for hygiene reasons. Although each property is checked regularly, crockery, cutlery and other equipment may become damaged through regular use or removed. Please report any damaged or missing items so that there is an opportunity to repair or replace the item.

When is the pool heating available?

Heated pools are only available when stated in the relevant villa description and will be at an additional cost unless otherwise stated. Where operation is during the winter months, this is from 1 Nov until 30 Apr. Some exclusions/rental restrictions may apply in July/August. Most heated pools are electrically heated and may take up to four days to heat, providing the pool with beneficial warming, but not making the water hot. The temperature of the pool will also depend on the weather conditions, especially if it is solar heated, and therefore we cannot guarantee your pool will be heated to a personally comfortable temperature. If a pool cover is available, it must be used when the pool is not in use, or overnight to maintain the pool temperature. If your villa does not have pool heating then the temperature of the water will be subject to weather conditions and overnight drops in temperature, and the water may feel cold to swim in.

Is there air conditioning and/or heating

When accommodation is equipped with air conditioning, this will be detailed accordingly in the villa description by listing the rooms the facility is available in. It will also be stated if there are set operation hours or set temperatures and if the cost is included in the rental or payable locally. It may be that only cool air is provided from air conditioning units. The majority of villas are not equipped with any form of heating facilities, however where available, there may be a charge locally to use this facility. Fireplaces located within a property are for decorative purposes only and are not to be used.

Are towels and linen provided at the accommodation?

All bedroom and bathroom linen is provided, unless otherwise stated within the property description. Bath towels are provided, usually one hand and one bath towel per person. You will need to take your own beach towels to use around the pool, unless otherwise stated within the property description. Cot linen is not provided; please ensure you take your own.

Is there a telephone and internet access in the villa?

Unless otherwise stated, telephones are not provided in the villa. Therefore we recommend that, if possible, you take mobile phones in case of an emergency. Internet access and Wi-Fi is available when stated in the relevant accommodation description. A charge may be payable locally or pre-departure. Please note there may be restrictions with the availability and speed of the service transmitted by the local provider and technical issues may cause temporary withdrawal of internet facilities. We are unable to accept responsibility for any down time or consequences of using this service and refund/compensation cannot be offered due to circumstances beyond our control.
