Signature - A room with a view
At James Villas, we've got a reputation for finding our customers some of the most fabulous villas in truly spectacular surroundings. We look for the 'wow' factor – those little touches that elevate an ordinary villa into something really special. So what is that elusive 'wow' factor?
What is the Signature 'Wow' factor?
It's that 'Ahh!' moment, when you breathe out, the stresses of everyday life are forgotten, and you realise you're in a stunning location with nothing to do except relax, unwind and enjoy your holiday. It's arriving at your chosen villa and setting your eyes on its stand out feature for the first time – it takes your breath away. "Yes", you think – "this was an excellent choice... I'm happy not to move from this spot for a week or two!" Plus knowing that every detail has been taken care of - from the temperature of the swimming pool to the bottle opener for your evening glass of wine. And it's those little extras, like free pool and bath towels, large barbecue, and a luscious garden to enjoy or spectacular views to take in.
How do we pick the right villas?
We know our guests want the very best in villa holidays, and in some of the best locations too. So we search across destinations to find those villas that match the strict criteria of our Signature Collection. We're looking for villas that have that “Wow” factor from the first moment you see them, so they have to have real visual impact when you arrive on your holiday. Then we take it one step further. Has this villa got a larger barbecue, bigger pool, better view? We then focus on the surroundings. We're looking for serenity, and an escape from everyday life. That's what makes a Signature villa.
Our aim is to provide something for everyone, whether you're looking for complete peace and quiet or you want to balance those tranquil, lazy days by the pool with a bit of sightseeing and a night on the town. We try to get the balance right between tranquility and peace with convenience and proximity to attractions, for those who don't want to be too far from the action. But if you really do want total seclusion – we have Signature villas for your holiday too.
It's the buzzword of the moment, but at James Villas we think there might be something in this concept of Mindfulness. Maybe it's because it fits in very well with our own ethos! We believe that a holiday isn't simply a chance to 'recharge your batteries', it's also the opportunity to open your mind to new experiences, discover new places and try new things. Mindfulness is also a chance to listen to our mind, body and even our spirit, and nourish all three. That could be anything from a workout with a personal trainer, to a slow walk through a pine-scented forest, a swim in a refreshing pool or a relaxing massage. What better time to fully immerse yourself in relaxation than on your Signature villa holiday – the freedom and peace is yours to embrace – so you can fully feel the benefits to your wellbeing.
Stunning views that enrich the soul
A view can have a remarkable effect on your mood. Wonderful scenery can enrich the soul and remind you of just how much beauty there is in the world. Towering mountains and limpid pools, deserted beaches and pine forests – the right view from every window is a crucial part of a Signature Villa holiday with us. We make sure nothing spoils your view, and we pick villas that let you capture that perfect sunset or sunrise from your balcony or pool, so you can enjoy that special moment everyday of your holiday.
Beach view or Mountain vista?
With a Signature Villa you can choose from a world of possibilities – quite literally! Our Serenity Villa in Beloussi is just a short walk from the beach, while our Vall d'en Marc villa at Pollensa in Mallorca is a fabulous farmhouse style villa surrounded by dramatic mountains. Villa Hecktor at Plaka, Chania in Crete, overlooks the sparkling blue waters of Souda Bay, while in the south of France our Villa La Sienda, at Frejus in the Cote d'Azur is surrounded by gently rustling trees.
No matter what view you are after to make your villa holiday special, you'll find it in our Signature collection.
“Our Signature villas have a real “wow” factor which make your holiday extra special.”
