She continued: “The last twelve months have seen a 15% rise in the number of bookings we have taken and our team of researchers have been out visiting numerous properties to increase our villas to 800 across 15 different destinations, including the Balearic Islands, Canary Islands, Greece, Malta and Spain.”

“We will use the British Travel Awards to support our continued growth and strategic aim of becoming the UK’s leading provider of hand-picked villas.”

British Travel Awards’ Chief Executive Lorraine Barnes Burton added her support:
