Why book with James?

We know holidays really, really matter. That feeling when you sit down, bags unpacked with a glass of something cold in your hand - the "wow, I'm on holiday" feeling - that's what we specialise in. Our job however starts long before this. From handpicking unique, stand-out villas, to the exceptional service you get when you call us, we offer a holiday experience exclusive to you. You could say we take the weight off you having to arrange a holiday and onto living one instead. Even in resort you can be assured that there is expert help and support on hand from our Villa Managers.

There are no hidden extras or booking fees* - we even include baggage in your flight price, so the price you see is the price you pay. This is your holiday on your terms - not ours. Don't just take our word for it though - 96% of our customers would rebook and have voted us the Best Villa Holiday Booking Company - an accolade we have achieved the last 6 years. What's more, your holiday and money is protected with our ATOL and ABTA bonding.
