Classic – A home from home
A villa holiday gives you a chance to live your holiday out to your own, personal timetable. There’s no sticking to hotel schedules, no set mealtimes and no interruptions from ‘Housekeeping’ when you fancy a lazy start to the day. A villa holiday puts you back in control of your time away, but it still has to tick plenty of boxes to make sure it’s a holiday to remember.
Your Classic villa will be a home away from home. At the end of a brilliant sun-filled day with the family you’ll come home to your beautiful villa, equipped with just what you need to maintain that holiday high. A comfortable interior, an enticing spacious pool for the kids to splash around in, and air conditioning are only the start when it comes to the features that Classic villas offer. So, what else can you expect from your classic villa holiday?
All the mod cons
So that you, the Classic James guest, are able to fully relax on your holiday we ensure that everything is conveniently at your fingertips. That means air conditioning, Wi-Fi connectivity, barbeque and excellent kitchen facilities. In short, all the mod cons are on hand to take care of the little things, while you focus on enjoying yourself.
Even if you’re planning a break away from modern 21st century life you still like to have certain comforts. So we make sure your Classic villa features a fully equipped kitchen with all the appliances you need, including the likes of a real coffee maker. So, you can wake up naturally and kick-start the day with a delicious fresh coffee in your favourite spot. All enjoyed in total privacy of course, unlike arriving at an overcrowded breakfast buffet at a set time – now that’s the beauty of a classic villa holiday.
Those little touches
The little touches can make all the difference, enhancing the enjoyment of your holiday even more. A Classic James Villa comes with all those personal touches that really make a holiday special. With a Classic villa all your linen is supplied for you, so you can wake up in soft cotton, and wrap yourself in fluffy towels after your morning dip. Don’t worry about packing a hairdryer either, as you’ll find one in your villa. So all you have to do is relax and enjoy yourself.
Pre-book a welcome pack
The first day of any holiday can be chaotic, especially if you don’t arrive at your villa until the evening. So rather than hunting for a local supermarket to pick up those essentials like tea, coffee and milk, why not pre-order a welcome pack? You can pre-order your welcome pack when you book your holiday. These are a great way to make sure your first evening in your villa is relaxed and laid back, setting the tone for the rest of the holiday. In a welcome pack you’ll get provisions for up to four people, including mineral water, milk, coffee, tea bags, sugar, fruit juice, bread, jam or marmalade, margarine/butter, ham slices, cheese, biscuits and crisps.
The interior of a Classic James Villa is elegant and cool, with matching décor throughout - but Mother Nature is the best designer there is. So we make the most of the palette she’s given us, by choosing villas that compliment rather than contrast. You’ll still get the very latest facilities and all those little extras, but you’ll also get a real feel for the region you’re staying in too. We pick villas that epitomize the region, whether that’s bright, whitewashed walls and cool tile floors, or a balanced blend of contemporary and traditional décor. From an early morning dip to a late night swim under the stars, a family barbecue or a lazy day relaxing in the sun, outdoor living at your villa will be at the heart of your holiday. So, don’t forget to make the most of the outdoor facilities such as sunny patios or covered terraces, pretty gardens and that all-important pool.
A great base for exploring
When you book a Classic James Villa you can decide what kind of holiday you want. Whether you prefer something a little off the beaten track or right in the middle of all the action in some of the world’s most desirable locations, we have the perfect match for you. Hire a car, head to the hills and discover local villages, unusual attractions and hidden beauty spots that make your holiday your own journey of discovery from start to finish. At the end of the day you simply head back to your spacious and comfortable home and relax – what could be better?
The kitchen – the heart of every home
The kitchen is the heart of every home. So all of our Classic villas have just what you need to rustle up something tasty, from pastries at breakfast to a fresh lunch platter filled with delights from the local market. Why not head down to the local village and pick up some fresh local ingredients and see what you can find? Our villa kitchens have everything you’ll need to take the stress out of feeding the family abroad!
A true home from home
No matter how glorious the scenery, how sparkling the pool or how well stocked the kitchen, a true home from home has that special holiday feeling that you can’t quite put into words. It’s where everyone, from tots to teenagers, parents to grandparents, all feel they can simply kick back, relax and enjoy their time away. It’s lazy days and nights filled with laughter, exploring new places and spending quality time together. We do everything we can to make sure your villa really is a home from home, and your holiday is one you’ll remember for a lifetime.
