Sarah

West Yorkshire Family (the eldest child is at school)
Quiet and peaceful when we were there in early June. Even though there are a number of other villas in the surrounding area, it felt private due to its positioning and was not overlooked. Lots of space both inside the villa and in the outdoor areas. Guests would have to be able to cope with steps as there are two flights to reach the pool from the living area. For us this wasn't an issue and provided good exercise! Due to the steps and balconies, the villa would probably not be suitable for young children. There is plenty of off road parking on a driveway outside the villa. Whilst we didn't need it, the villa was fully air conditioned. We did self cater for the full week and little things like kitchen roll, cling film and tin foil would have been a helpful addition. The kitchen was well equipped, however, there wasn't much free cupboard space for food storage. A nice touch was that there was a maid service mid week with a change of towels and bin emptying. There is a supermarket close by which had everything we needed. Disappointingly, on arrival the pool water wasn't as clear as it should have been, however, once reported, this was addressed quickly and the issue rectified. The pool is big and we took the option of having it heated which was great, so we spent a lot of time in it. We would recommend this villa and would visit again.

Dronfield Group
While the pictures of the villa in the brochure looked fantastic in real life it was not as good. The furniture was tired and for the money paid I take exception to notices everywhere telling me what I can and can't do. These included instructions not to sit on the leather settees unless sitting on the throws provided, and not to sit on outdoor chairs and lounges if wearing suncream.
During the two week stay, the pool towels provided, one per person were never changed and the mid holiday clean never happened.
However when we did contact the James Villas agent over a couple of issues she responded very quickly and organised an engineer who was on site within an hour.
The process of booking/travel information/service etc. provided by James Villas was excellent, it was only the villa that did not live upto expectation.

Ormskirk Family (with only pre-school children)
Great place to stay with family - far reaching views and overlooking the signature 15th hole green and lake. Well equipped, hidden from view of other villas and secluded. Issues with hot water, WiFi and pool were sorted during our stay.

Edwin

Reading Family (the eldest child is at school)
This villa was perfect for our family holiday and worked wonderfully as a base to explore the local area. The villa had everything you could need to make it almost a home from home - as well as being extremely clean. It provided that comfort and peacefulness to return to after a long day exploring and, if we didn't want to venture out, it was perfect for relaxing in. The size of the pool was also perfect and allowed our two children to play safety and practice their swimming. The location could not be faulted - secluded enough to provide privacy and quiet but close enough to local places to really get to know the surrounding country. We cannot provide any negative comments and had a wonderful holiday - it is on our list to return to in the future.

Nicholas

Family (the eldest child is at school)
Excellent Villa. Secluded location that is also very near to e.g. Supermarket. A very relaxing stay with polite and frequent services (pool guy, gardeners, linen and towel change).

We have 2 almost teenage children and I would definitely recommend this Villa to a similar family or families as this Villa could be used by 2 families of 4. They spent a lot of time in the pool, which is deep enough for them to safely jump in (multiple times). I would NOT recommend this Villa for anyone who with young children who are not confident swimmers as the pool would be too deep. I would also not recommend it to anyone who struggles with stairs. Not sure if you have this in your description of the Villa and it would be useful to add.

For a family like ours it was perfect and your Rep was very helpful.

We would definitely use you again. Not only was the Villa an excellent experience but the whole package was as smooth. EasyJet and Gatwick/Faro all provided excellent service and this made the start + end of our holiday as stress free as possible. Thank you.

Fantastic villa - the pictures did not do it justice. Had everything we needed, including lots of pool floats of different varieties. WiFi, TV, kitchen all very good. Very clean and well kept. Regular pool maintenance. Fantastic shower in master bedroom and all ensuite bathrooms good. Tastefully decorated.
