CHOOSING THE

right villa

Family gathering, indulgent holiday, privacy required, ‘cheap holiday in the sun’ or just a base to explore. The reasons guests choose a holiday and a villa is as unique as them. Our Villa Collections are designed to help this process, all based on the facilities so it’s really easy to pick and compare. Turn the next page for a chart to help you, this is also included in the brochure and on the website and of course we are on hand to help with any enquiry.

It’s simple and affordable. Your customers can enjoy the privacy and freedom a villa holiday brings, at great value. Although our starting range, there is no compromise on what makes a villa holiday amazing. Private pools, kitchen, TV, sun loungers, outdoor space, linen and towels. Sending customers to a SIMPLY villa with James will be the easiest thing you do.

This is our bread and butter, what we are known for. A warm home-away from home vibe, modern comforts, with oodles of space. The pool is bigger than a simply so plenty of room to splash around. Wi-Fi? Tick. Air conditioning? Yes. Washing machine? Of course. Those little things like hair dryers, flat screen TVs and Bluetooth speakers all taken care of.
