Established in 1984, James Villa Holidays is the leading villa tour operator in the UK. We pride ourselves on offering you handpicked, quality accommodation, at an affordable price. Our dedicated and specialised team is here to offer you the service you expect from a company which is arranging your all-important holiday for you.
James sells holidays directly to you – you won’t find us through travel agents. Instead, deal with us directly online, by phone or face to face in our Bluewater store. This means that you are in contact with the very people who know our product best. Our team of Travel Advisors regularly visit our destinations and villas, which ensures you will receive accurate information and advice from a team who can draw from their very own experiences.
Even as we grow, we are still committed to hand-selecting every villa, scrutinising each one to ensure we are offering the best in every destination. Every year, we visit a large selection of potential new villas, but we only select those that are of the standard we expect. This includes health and safety checks to protect the wellbeing of our customers at all times.
What could be more exciting than choosing where to go on holiday? We’re proud to bring you over 50 great destinations across the Mediterranean and beyond, for both summer and winter holidays, and with every type of villa imaginable. Whether you’re looking for a traditional farmhouse, a modern villa with lots of activities on your doorstep in a Leisure Resort, or something extra special from our Best of James range, we can arrange the ideal holiday for you.
Our personal service is something we take immense pride in. Browse our website and brochure to discover our great range of villas and apartments, and if you need more help, call our Travel Advisors who will discuss your requirements and help you choose your ideal holiday. If you would like to speak to someone face to face, you can drop into our store at Bluewater shopping centre in Kent. Whatever way you choose to book, there is always someone on hand to help.
With friendly and dedicated resort teams in many of our destinations, discreet assistance is just a phone call away. Where available and if you’ve chosen to enjoy our representative visit, one of our team will visit once at the beginning of your stay and only visit again upon your request. In many resorts, our teams live locally and can offer invaluable insider knowledge on your destination and pass on great tips on places to see or visit during your holiday. If the option of a representative visit is not available in your destination or if you’ve chosen against utilising the service, your travel documents will have local contact numbers should you need assistance.
We are able to offer you a one-stop shop for the essential elements of your holiday. We offer great prices on flights, ferry crossings, car hire, and travel insurance so you should not need to shop around, and we can also arrange extras such as welcome grocery packs, car seats and travel cots, all designed to make your holiday even more relaxing. You will also find essentials such as fresh linen and bed towels when you arrive at your villa.
You can relax in the knowledge that a holiday with James is fully protected. You can tailor-make your holiday with the elements that suit you best, and our ATOL protection means that in the event of an airline’s insolvency or difficulties with any of our suppliers, we are on hand to provide assistance and to protect your payments. This assurance is something you may not get by booking directly with other companies.
At James, we pride ourselves on offering superb villas at great prices. As the leading villa holiday specialist in the UK, we are able to offer highly-competitive deals on our villas, flights, car-hire and a range of other extras. Whatever holiday you choose, we are committed to offering you great value for money.
