Brilliant little villa
Great view from fig tree cottage
Paid a visit to the massive lake at the bottom of Corfu island. There are some fab tavernas - best lamb chops ever ! And amazing scenery- no flamingos today!!

Gorgeous setting with stunning views of the bay. The food is very good and the service excellent but you pay for it!!!
The Villa, pool and surrounding area are absolutely stunning! The hosts are so warm and welcoming and have thought of many little extras such as extra large towels or plastic cups for kids that make the whole stay much easier. It's in a great location to explore, the market at Barcelos and Caminahs restaurants being winners with us. Beautiful beaches close by too, this really is a slice of heaven!!
Really gorgeous, if slightly quirky villa. Pool and outside areas are amazing. The villa is quirky, decor rather dated, but everything and more you can possibly need. Immaculately clean.
Perfect place for an aperitif

Beautiful water and great snorkelling. Well priced popular beach cafe. Really steep walk down from the parking, quite do-able but not for those wary of slipping
This villa is beautiful, amazing sunsets every night, nice size pool, plenty of space, fantastic!

Amazing food but soooooo big
Great Tapas in Moraira - off the main strip but well worth a visit. Exceptional plates of food and a good wine list. Caters well for the children as well
Beautiful villa in fab location
We went to this restaurant/ takeaway last night! Well worth a visit if you enjoy freshly baked pizza. The pizza's are more than enough for 2 people! Tasty and fresh!

Interesting, but make sure you are covered up as it gets v hot in the baking sun! Beautiful views of the coast! The Cliffs restaurant serves sharing platters at €12 for 2 people on a lunchtime!
A cruise from Latchi a 30 minute drive from the villa. Cruise to blue lagoon for an hour swim and sunset cruise back. Really great afternoon.
Very hot, but great views
Despina is a lovely villa, situated within walking distance of some really nice restaurants. You'll need a car for the beaches as they're a little too far to walk in the heat. 10 minutes from the airport does mean this view regularly throughout the day.
Thought the pool may be to small, but it did the job just fine for 3 kids! Villa in brilliant location. On the edge of the old town, which is the nicer part for me, and seconds from a good shopping centre
6 Restaurants in Costa Blanca recommended by you
A lovely comfortable villa. Walking distance to sea front and restaurants. Fairly quiet, but a few barking dogs nearby! Lovely pool, one of the best we've had,deep end quite deep though. We did have to contact the local owners though. There were only 3 sunbeds when we arrived even though the villa sleeps 4. A fourth sunbed appeared the next day though. Also the hot water went AWOL for 2 days, but we mentioned it to the cleaner and it was fixed the next day. Despite searching high and low we could not find any bluetooth speaker which was mentioned on the villa facilities. On the whole though we would reccomend this villa and location.
Omg!!! Seriously this is the most amazing place to eat .
I really can't recommend it highly enough.
Food is to die for and soooooo big and the staff are so lovely , nothing is too much trouble for them .
Keep up the fantastic work guys
We went for a meal at the restaurant in the festival square in Pollença. It was by far the best meal we had, a brilliant atmosphere in the square and very good value for money

Had the most amazing week in this villa everything you could need and just been upgraded beautiful furnishings pool was great and plenty of sun beds all amenities a short stroll away would return
We opted for heated - makes all the difference
Main bedroom- dual aspect balconies
Stunning sunsets. Definitely a villa with a view!
We arrived early in the morning on the way to the other side of the Island, even in July there was only a few other people venturing through the tunnel at that time. Great fun for children . Nice place for refreshments .

Lovely relaxing day and stunning location
Easy night beside the pool
We have just had a 2 week holiday staying at Villa Principe, Pertici near Groznjan, Croatia. the villa was outstanding everything was catered for, the pool being the standout feature! The weather could not have been better, hence having regular dips in the pool too cool off.
Groznjan is a wonderful little village very pretty, with about 4 restaurants and a few more bars/ cafes. Their is a wide range of shops selling the artists work and souvenirs , The is live music every night and the village has no cars bar a few roads.
Villa Principe is about the 1 Km from the village on a single track road, it is furnished to a high standard and the beds are very comfy, the owner Silvio was swift to assist in a WiFi issue. I would highly recommend staying, it is stunning.
The cost of food and drink is very cheap 2 L of the local beer is £3.40 !!! And a meal for 4 plus drinks was on average about £50. Pool was a welcome retreat from the blazing sunshine & definitely made the holiday.
A short walk away and perfect for a river swim

Strong currents but fun to surf at low tide.
If you're looking for a villa with the wow factor this is it!
Fantastic views, all bedrooms spacious and en suite, very spacious inside and out.
Would definitely recommend to family groups or friends.
Very quiet but picturesque. Lovely restaurant (Denis) with delicious food and very friendly staff.
Pretty harbour town. Picturesque with lovely walks and cafes
Fabulous place to take an evening walk!
1 Bars and Nightlife in Mallorca recommended by you
Shipwreck Bay and the Blue Caves are a nice trip of 2.5 hrs from Theodosis Crusies in Ag Nikolaos port, they are smaller boats which are not to crowded, a chance to swim and good fast cruise along the coast, if you go peak season there are lots of boats and people at Shipwreck bay but worth a visit
Fabulous villa and pool
Superb food and excellent service. Very friendly staff
First night in our villa, love the wine in our welcome pack
Excellent quality food and very friendly staff. Highly recommended!
We love this place. Close to Cala en Bosch marina and beautiful sunsets. Cap D'Artrux has a new restaurant open now and appears to be getting out of recession, which is really good. If you are in Cala Blanca 2019/20 please put a review do we can find out if it has improved there too. Thanks ??????

2 Bars and Nightlife in Lanzarote recommended by you
Nicely laid out accommodation with the bedrooms on the cooler ground floor. Well equipped kitchen with toaster, coffee machine and microwave. All seems in very good order and looks as if it may have been recently decorated.
An amazing villa perfect in every way. The owner was lovely and also brought us a lovely cake. Highly recommended clean and well maintained
Great villa with lots of space and a nice pool for a family or family / singles close to the beach and supermarkets
Lovely location with great views and a marvellous spot to watch the boating activities
Excellent location and the villa was exactly as described would highly recommend James Villas & Greece
Beautiful, spacious, clean villa with a lovely seafront location. We loved waking up to the sound of the waves on the beach below.
Highly recommend Rubicon and Lanis restaurant. Great food and really nice area and views. Gin cocktails a must.
But only is the food fantastic but you can also see plenty of turtles during the day. Nice cool breeze as well. Worth a try and often parking available right outside.

Excellent villa, very well equipped with excellent space.
The location is great with just a few minutes drive into Coral bay.

It is very quite and private too with a nice bar Yalos just down the road.
Easy to get to the sites of Paphos the mountain range of Truro's. etc
Polis and the harbour are worth a visit, good for food. The old village of Kathikos is a short drive away.
Sunset on our first evening.

A traditional Majorcan farmhouse converted into a holiday villa. Plenty of space inside and out of this characterful property. Be aware the pool is salt water not chlorinated. It's the first time we've had a salt water pool and we were very pleasantly surprised. It's very mild and we found we preferred it. This isn't the most modern of villas but it's beautiful and full of charm.
Lovely view of the boats you can feed the fish in the marina bread supplied and good service
This was a very good experience and well worth the money €6 each this is part of the national park
Great views from the walk along the seafront up by the port.

Fabulous stay highly recommended
Beautiful private pool and gardens at Villa Atzi II
This is supposed to be the best beach in Portugal, it's a small little fishing village where it has a small main beach, or you can get a beach ferry to take you across to a larger beach with soft white sand. On the day we went there was many people that where kite boarding. Well worth a trip.
Lovely food and amazing staff!! Right on the beach
For only €10 if booked over the phone I would recommend the simple but lovely glad bottomed boat tour. It follows the harbour viewing 24 historical buildings. It takes an hour but worth the money.
For any musicians or anyone loving the sound of an organ I would recommend to the 3200 pipes. There is a recital everyday at 1pm except Sunday for only €5 donation (2019).

Villa Fig Tree is beautiful. Well equipped, comfortable and in a quiet spot, so very peaceful. We are coming to the end of an amazing 2 week holiday here and we have been so impressed. The maintenance men come a couple of times a week to clean the pool and do anything else that needs doing and there's a weekly maid service. Kerry, the villa manager, is lovely: nothing is too much trouble, and living on the island permanently she has fantastic local knowledge.
If there is a downside, and it's probably more of a personal one than a general issue, the steps of the pool are very deep and with my arthritic knees I have struggled to get in and out - but I've still been able to enjoy the pool so it's no big deal.
This was our first time with James Villas and we would definitely use the company again. We have been very happy here and love the ambience in the town and surrounding area. It's a shame we have to go home reallly! I could easily live here!
