If you’re currently thinking this beautiful weather is too good to last, you’re probably right; we all know the UK summer after all. If the recent sunny spell has you looking for more surety around your sunshine, you might be tempted by a last-minute escape. The good news is that booking somewhere to stay at short notice doesn’t have to mean settling for what’s left. Our range of luxury villas are visited and handpicked by us for their exceptional facilities and comforts, so if you do want to make a quick pick, you know it’s a good choice.
Casa Melody, Algarve
Located in Lagos in the western Algarve, Casa Melody is packed with everything you need to entertain a large group or family. With both indoor and outdoor pools, plus a cinema room, this large villa sleeps up to 16, so you’ll feel as though you’re staying in your own private resort.
Lagos is a fantastic town with plenty to see and do, including over 2,000 years of history to experience at the Santa Maria church and church of St. Anthony, as well as the Praça de Gil Eanes square, which regularly hosts public events.
Casa Melody is available for 7 nights, from 18th and 25th August.
La Estrella, Costa del Sol
Few things say ‘luxury escape’ like relaxing in your own infinity pool, surrounded by stunning views of a premium Costa del Sol golf resort. La Estrella offers every comfort and convenience that you would expect from a luxury James villa, while also boasting its own games room with pool and football tables. The sprawling Mijas Golf Resort is on your doorstep, with sports facilities, a cinema and fantastic restaurants.
La Estrella is available for 7 nights, from 6th August and 20th August.
This villa encapsulates all that’s chic. The private pool is fabulous – especially when it’s lit up at nigh – and the décor throughout the property is elegant and artless. Enjoy views over the pool and gardens when you’re having breakfast al fresco on the terrace, before walking the short five minutes it takes to get to the beach. Part of the lavish Vale do Lobo golf and beach resort, you’ll spend the entire week living the luxury life.
Gabriella is available for 7 nights, from 27th August.
In the heart of the Algarve, the popular resort of Vilamoura boasts a long, golden sandy beach and is home to a wealth of amenities, such as the stunning marina with its fantastic bars and restaurants. Our luxury villa Velma is perfectly situated to enjoy it all. It’s just around the corner from the local golf club, and is located just outside of Vilamoura’s centre, so you benefit from the bustling town while still having your own tranquil retreat. The sprawling gardens surrounding the pool are fantastic for kids to run around in, and there’s plenty of shaded seating if you need to escape the heat.
Velma is available for 7 nights, from 20th August and 27th August.
Electra, Rhodes Town
The final property on my list is on the beautiful Greek island of Rhodes, nestled in one of the scenic hillsides. The design features throughout Electra are meticulous, with wooden-beamed ceilings and views over the ocean; it’s a luxury home away from home. Sleeping four, it’s perfect for small groups who are looking for something really special.
Just a short walk from the beach, there’s also a spacious private infinity pool, with its own open poolside shower, and incredibly spacious living area with floor-to-ceiling windows, offering views over the nearby town.
Electra is available for 7 nights, from 31st August.
