James Villas - a new design
James Villa, one the largest names in holiday villas - and a firm favourite of
us at Cottage Choice - has relaunched itself just in time for the January rush.
The new website certainly looks the business, and should make it easier to
find the villa you're after. However, what I want to mention here is not just the new look of the website, but
another feature James Villas have introduced to help you find the villa you want. The villas have been broken down into
"collections", with villas having similar attributes being grouped together. For example, assume you want
to get out and explore the area, while using your villa as a base - and not really needing too much more - you may want to
look at the "Simply" collection. Or, at the other end of the spectrum, or may be after a villa which is a little bit special;
something with all mod-cons - in this case you may want to head to the "Ultimate" collection.
James Villas have various collections of villas: Simply, Classic, Signature, Luxury, Ultimate, Individual

of the collections.
