With such a wide selection of holiday villas to choose from, we have only selected the ones that offer that certain 'something special'; so understandably the standards of our villas are generally high.
Generally kitchens are modern and fitted with full hob, oven and microwave. There will be a fridge with freezer and most villas feature a dishwasher and washing machine amongst the inventory. As well as the kitchen, all villas have barbecue facilities, most are built-in on the terrace and there will also be an outdoor dining area.
Where the number of bathrooms is listed under the villa name, we make no distinction between a bathroom and a shower room with either a bath or shower stall. The facility in each bathroom will be described in the descriptive copy with separate toilets detailed where present.
Air conditioning, where available, may be subject to an additional charge. The more modern villas in Spain are often equipped with ceiling fans. Some Spanish villas have central heating or electric radiators which make them attractive for off-season and winter lets.
Most of our villas have an open fire or in some cases a wood burning stove. The fire will warm the villa nicely on cool evenings and give an added cosy atmosphere. Logs are cheap and readily available, a starter supply is often provided for off-season lets.
With the accessibility of high speed internet and satellite services, most villas now have a wide range of familiar channels provided by satellite subscription or HD internet TV. Video recorders and DVD players are also widely available, standard UK videos and Region 2 disks will play in colour just like at home.
The swimming pool dimensions quoted in the villa descriptions have, in most cases, been measured then rounded to the nearest half metre. Depths are generally accurate but please reassure yourself on arrival for the safety of your family. With irregular shaped pools, the maximum size is quoted.
Some pools benefit from pool heating and this is noted in the description. Supplementary charges for pool heating are usually around £140 per week with actual pricing provided at the time of booking.
Living rooms in our villas are well furnished with comfortable sofas and chairs so you can truly relax. Terraces are furnished with sun loungers, quality garden furniture and parasols or pergolas. Bedrooms will usually have ample storage and hanging space but not always in every bedroom.
Bed linen, tea towels and hand towels are provided in our Spanish villas, but you're expected to take your own beach and pool towels unless noted in the description. Linen and towels are usually changed weekly. There are no formal maid services but often these can be arranged and paid for locally, please ask for details.
Whilst most of our holiday villas are very attractively decorated and furnished, we make no apologies for the taste of some of our Spanish villa owners. We occasionally accept that not all rooms are exactly as we would like them and we endeavour to either "tell it as it is" in the description or make any design faux pas clear with photographs.
A security deposit is sometimes required to cover the cost of any breakages or incidentals during your stay. This is normally administered locally by pre-authorisation on your credit card. No money is actually taken at the time, an amount is set aside and deducted if required. You will be advised by our agents if any charges are due.
Occasionally we may have to collect a deposit here in the UK, which is held safely and refunded on your return.
