James Villa Holidays

In February we announced that Kent-based James Villa Holidays, the UK’s largest villa tour operator had exclusively contracted with Playas del Almanzora SL to add Desert Springs, Europe’s only international award-winning luxury family resort and championship desert golf course, to its portfolio of leisure resorts for holidays in 2010.

Initially, James Villa Holidays contracted 10 detached Villas and Cottages at Desert Springs and due to phenomenal demand from their clients, these properties were almost immediately fully booked for the summer period. Since the start of their initial campaign, James Villa Holidays reserved 110 weeks of property rentals at Desert Springs, resulting in their contracting a further 4 detached properties, 11 Apartments and 7 Townhouses.

Andy Smith, marketing director of James Villa Holidays, which offers holidays in 49 leisure resorts commented:

“We were keen to add Desert Springs to our destinations once we saw its fantastic facilities and amenities and the high caliber of the villas and cottages with pools. Demand has been unprecedented and Desert Springs has become the third most popular destination in our whole portfolio of 49 resorts!”

With their 2011 marketing campaign currently in full swing and facing further strong demand from their clients, James Villa Holidays have now requested even more detached Villas and Cottages to add to their rental portfolio at Desert Springs.

Brigid Irwin of the Property Management department of Playas del Almanzora SL explains:

“Our exclusive tie up with James Villa Holidays has been extremely positive for property rentals. It has been good to see the greatly increased level of rental activity and the increased financial rewards to those owners, who assigned the letting of their properties to us. There can now be no doubt that legally secure letting through Playas del Almanzora SL provides extra lettings and income without the increasingly real insurance, financial and tax risks and penalties incurred by unregulated private lettings outside Spanish law.

The increased demand from James Villas offers the opportunity for Owners both to increase their lettings and to correct any anomalous current legal situation. I would be very pleased to discuss our Management and Letting schemes with any Owners who wish to take up this opportunity.”
