From a single villa...

Here at James Villas, we like to remember that we were once a person. We still hold the family-run business values of James Villas founder, Jim Needham, who started with a big idea and spare bedroom-office. Jim started James Villas in 1985, turning the hobby of renting out his Lanzarote property into a business.

From a single villa, James has gone from strength to strength, now offering guests over 2900 villas in more than 50 fabulous destinations across the Mediterranean, Caribbean and America. Although, the first ever James Villas employee is still here today!

We are the UK's leading villa holiday specialist and we love what we do. We are proud of our reputation and passion for offering the very best villa holiday experiences.

Our owners since 2010, The Wyndham Group, provide us and our guests with continued protection and peace of mind, with the James Villas ethos very much still at the centre of everything we do.
