This is the one thing that concerns me about booking a villa, given the current economic climate - you hear to many horror stories. We will definitely be looking at DIBB villas for our trip Easter 2011. Thanks again for the invaluable advice.

There is nothing to stop this happening with TO retained villas. In fact it has when a large company providing villas to TOs went bust recently.http://www.thedibb.co.uk/forums/show...ht=welcome+usa

IMHO there is no substitute for personal contact with the Villa owner directly rather than a third party. And take this advice:

Hi Cori
Many thanks for the very kind comments about my home they are much appreciated.Unfortunately I am booked for the dates you need so will be unable to help you out for next year but as Karma says try the villa section where there are lots of beautiful homes .

High and Dry

I've had a similar experience in that I booked my villa (not unfortunately through this site) in February. I phoned to pay the balance today to find that the villa owner had sold the villa earlier in the year but had failed to let me know despite having cashed my deposit. I'm now desperately trying to find alternative accommodation over the Christmas/New Year period which is proving extremely difficult. Any advice or help would be gratefully received.
