Choosing from the iNDIVIDUAL collection means you get a real insiders tip on where to stay. No one knows villas better than our Product Team, who handpick all James properties, so when they selected these as ‘stand out’ villas we know they are really unique. They've been there, seen and experienced the villa - now they want to tell you all about it!

Our iNDIVIDUAL villas may not tick every box. The features vary from property to property - that's part of what makes them different.

A full list of amenities can be found on each iNDIVIDUAL villa page, along with commentary from the Product team member who explains exactly why they are so excited to have chosen the villa to be part of this collection.

Of course at James we expertly handpick all of our villas for a reason! So you can rest assured that our iNDIVIDUAL villas will be up to our usual high standards, and above all else a superb base for a big holiday.

We have iNDIVIDUAL villas across some amazing destinations, so take your pick!

“Quinta da Luz may be missing a couple of small facilities which would otherwise mean it would be classed as one of our 'Luxury' villas, but this is more than made up for with its stunning countryside views and inviting pool.”

      It was really great. I am quite fussy and could not find fault with the villa. The maid was lovely too and a bonus the fact that she was there twice during our week.

      The most fantastic villa we have been to with James Villa's and we've been to a few! Would go back there in a heartbeat and have been telling all our friends that are looking for a holiday to try there, it was everything it said in the blurb AND MORE can't wait to go there again.

Glasgow Family (the eldest child is at school)
Beautiful house with stunning views. The owner was really helpful and friendly. The pool is great. A bit cool so 2 of the 4 swimmers wore wet suits ( October so not surprised it wasn't warm. It is big and deep so will change temp slowly). The villa is stunning with loads of space and the bathrooms were all immaculate. Everything we needed and much more.

margate Group
Quinta da luz is far and away the best villa we have ever stayed in. The beds were the most comfortable of any accommodation we have visited.
All our bedrooms had en-suite bathrooms which were massive.
The views and shared balcony for the top 2 bedrooms were exceptional.
The pool was everything we could have wished for, we played water volleyball daily.
The nearest bar/cafe called cafe dos matos, run by fatima served lovely food, you need to give her notice if you want a full meal as she buys it all in fresh.
We had 2 great meals there, out of the villa turn right, bottom of the hill, then left and it's the first bar you come to on the left hand side.

Would visit again and again and again.
Fantastic place

Oooh almost forgot....sauna in basement that we all used, a table tennis table downstairs and a pool table in the main area were a great addition and many fine tournaments were had by us.

Highly recommend

Bagshot Family with Grown up
Overall a great villa in a lovely location with plenty of space. The views are fantastic and the pool is lovely - a pity it is not lit for an evening swim. There are a few points that need a little attention - a couple of the showers leak and need repairing / replacing and the current outdoor furniture lets the villa down slightly - but these are pretty minor points. The facilities with Sauna, Table tennis and Pool are enough to keep everyone occupied.
The unmade road to the villa takes a bit of getting used to but the benefit is the peace and quiet and the amazing views - the bumpy ride is certainly worth it !
The location is good - a short drive to the nearest supermarket and village and only 10-15 minutes out of Albuferia and only about 40 minutes from Faro airport.
There is plenty of space inside and out for a family or a couple of families and good space for socialising. Nearly a 9 out of 10 overall and could easily score top marks.

Family (the eldest child is at school)
What a great villa, spacious and in a lovely setting, yes the road upto the villa is narrow, but in 2 weeks we only encountered one car and there were places to pass. The owner popped in a couple of times a week and had plenty of great tips for days out and places to visit.
The furniture outdoors was a little dated and was the only thing that stopped this being a 10.
A very peaceful location with great views

Walsall Couple
Fantastic villa and a very enjoyable holiday. Villa owners were extremely helpful and welcoming and kept us supplied with wine which was a lovely gesture.

Warrington Family (with only pre-school children)
The villa is lovely with great views. But this comes at a cost. It is difficult to get to, at least 1km by dirt track up a very steep hill.
The pool is a lot bigger than expected and comes with everything you could need.
Any problems we had were sorted very quickly by the owner.
A car is a must as it's not easy to go for a quick nip to the shop if you fancy something, although it is near the main road systems so it is easy to get around once away from the hill.
