“We have been customers of Luxury Villa Living since the company's formation, and have enjoyed exceptional service over the years, covering a broad range of holidays, including villas, hotels and train journeys.
The attention to detail has been key on every trip, and the quality of those all-important "extras" has been outstanding, eg local guides or transport from airport to villa or hotel.
We expect the best. We have enjoyed the best.”

“On a visit to Barbados in April, we used the services of Luxury Villa Living and through the expertise of Colette Powell we booked a superb villa, the travel arrangements were faultless and the deal on a hire-car could not be beaten on an internet search. It took us a little while to finally decide on what we really wanted but throughout that process Colette was informative and displayed exemplary patience. I would use the services of Luxury Villa Living again and highly recommend them.”
Derek Conway - May 2013
“Using Luxury Villa Living has been the most stress free holiday I ever had. From the start Colette Powell look after me and nothing was too much for her. She will always be available either on the phone or by email answering any question. My trip, from air ticket to my resort has been so far the best organised holiday I had and at last I found someone who cares about you. Needless to say I will always use in the future Luxury Villa Living.”
Agnès McMillan - Scotland - Feb 2013
“I have now had the pleasure and I can’t emphasise enough how much of a pleasure it has been of booking 4 different types of holiday with Colette.
My bookings have been individually complicated in various ways but Colette works seamlessly to make everything fit perfectly and nothing is ever too much trouble for her. Her knowledge and suggestions help to make holidays more enjoyable. Luxury Villa Living gives you that personal touch. It really is the most professional company I have booked with and I look forward to booking again very soon!!”
Joanne Young - Leeds - Feb 2013
“The service I received when booking my holiday to St Lucia and then on to Barbados was absolutely first class. Colette could not have been more helpful and I would definitely use her again.
Nothing was too much trouble.”
Scilla Phillips - Feb 2013 - Repeat Client
“As always, our latest trip, organised by Colette of Luxury Villa Living, was a masterclass in efficiency, and as a result we could travel without a care in the world knowing that everything would work like clockwork - and perchance something should go amiss, then safe in the knowledge that Colette would sort it out in a flash. It is the little unexpected things that she does that make booking a holiday with Colette a pleasure - from checking flights are on time and ensuring the right seats the day before travel, an email a few days after arrival to check all is well, or to finding a ping pong table on an island in the Caribbean and having it delivered to your villa!
She is a joy to work with.”
Cate Heynes - Feb 2013 - Repeat Client
“We had the pleasure of dealing with Colette whilst looking for our 2012 holiday and we can honestly say that she made it a pleasurable experience. The difficulty we have is that we have 4 young children and convenience and childrens club are as important as luxury. Colette gave us a number of options and also gave her own personal thoughts as to which holiday would be more suitable for a family, she kept us updated regularly without appearing over-bearing. In this day and age with so many faceless organisations, it is refreshing and rewarding to deal with a company and an individual that offers a personal and friendly approach. We are looking forward to next year's holiday and we looking forward to using Colette again and again”
Steve & Kate, Solihull - November 2011
“Thank you again Colette. From my perspective this has been the most relaxed, informed and fun holiday booking process I have ever been involved in. You can write any quote you want about your brilliance, all round niceness, service ethos and anything else you want and I'll sign it now. You are the Carslberg of holiday organisers”
Mark Freebairn, London - October 2011

“I have recently dealt with Colette regarding a couple of enquiries for private villas in St Tropez and Ibiza. Colette was extremely helpful and quick to answer clients’ enquires and always ready to come up with suggestions about the accommodations. Colette is very professional and has a great knowledge of the villas and accommodations in her portfolio.
On one occasion, one of the clients missed a flight and we had to rebook the hotel and the flight. Colette handled the situation extremely well and I am looking forward to work with her again in the future.”
Valerio Biasion, Little Black Book - September 2011
“With a late request and the complication of a family arriving from three different locations to the Caribbean, Colette calmly, economically, efficiently and expediently put a late holiday together for us and continue to help us whilst there. I couldn't recommend anyone more highly. She reflects what service really should be.”
Rory and Kate Cullinan - August 2011
“Just a short note to thank you for the wonderful service received on our recent family villa holiday to Quinta do Lago. The resort staff were magnificent and the standard of the villa superb. As I am sure I mentioned our family have been going to the area for many years and I can honestly say that this has been the best experience we have had from start to finish. It has been a pleasure doing business with you and your colleagues ….. a rare treat these days…...well done to all!”
Patricia Mcintosh and family - July 2011
“Dear Colette, I am sorry for not contacting you sooner to thank you so so much for arranging our holiday to Portugal. I doubt if anyone else would have gone to so much trouble to ensure our holiday ran smoothly, especially as you had to deal with the uncertainty of the ash cloud! We loved the villa you arranged for us to stay in. You know that we go to Portugal quite frequently and, from now on, we wouldn't go to anyone else to arrange any future holidays. You handled everything with great efficiency and calmness and nothing I asked of you was ever too much trouble no matter what time I telephoned you. With our thanks for arranging a very stress free holiday.”
Christine Cottrell, Cheshire - May 2010
“Luxury Villa Living found us wonderful villas and hotels and have always been able to find flights which suited our demanding timetables. The fact that Colette is always just a phone call away is so important. Her attention to detail at all times is outstanding and has resulted in thoroughly enjoyable holidays, leaving us only to worry about packing the sun cream!”

“I grew up abroad and have travelled extensively throughout my life. However, I have travelled abroad to a variety of destinations on numerous occassions during the last ten years. During this time, my extended family and I have undoubtably had some of the greatest travel experiences of our lives to date.
The advice, service and total travel experience, including complete concierge-style service that we have received has been first-rate and the single dominant factor in making our experiences trouble-free, relaxing and special.
The common denominator in all of this is Fiona Jones, whose experience, knowledge and personable style would be such an asset. It is solely because the service we have received through Fiona that my family and I are always guaranteed the very best holiday experience....and that is exactly what we have had.
I will now be looking to book our next travel experience through Luxury Villa Living.”
D. Nelhams, Long standing client
“Our family have had 4 wonderful villa holidays in Barbados booked by Fiona.
Her knowledge of the area and individual villas meant that she could match properties exactly to our needs and her attention to detail meant that nothing was left to chance. With Fiona’s expert and friendly care and help we were always sure our holiday would be a great success.“
