Long Term Lets in Javea, Moraira and Benitachell

Meet The VillaMia Team

Michelle Hughes owner


Michelle Hughes is the owner of Mia Costa Blanca SL, which VillaMia and Mia Cars are part of.

With a BA (hons) in Business Administration, Michelle always wanted to run her own business. After 13 years working in public relations in Wales, she moved to Spain with her son. Two years later the opportunity arose for her to buy VillaMia so she jumped at the chance to build on an established business. Michelle has used her skills in social media and marketing to improve the business tremendously with her strengths. Her PR background has meant she is extremely organised, works to tight deadlines and is used to juggling several things at once without getting stressed and still keeping a big smile on her face.

Outside the office Michelle’s time is spent looking after her teenage son and lovely cocker spaniel and likes to let her hair down with friends. Some of her claims to fame have been winning a lovely legs competition in Butlins, Kim Katrell saying she liked Michelle’s Doc Martin’s when working as an extra on a film set and through her PR work being splashed across hundreds of newspapers in the UK. Her idol is Richard Branson and only regret in life is not speaking to him at an event in London she was involved with and he was on the next table!

Although living in Javea, Michelle still likes to travel and her favourite holidays have been a Mediterranean cruise, experiencing Las Vegas, and explored Spain's amazing city of Seville, Salou and Estarti. Javea is great for easy weekends in Valencia and Alicante which she makes the most of.

Michelle’s favourite food is Chinese but enjoys eating out at various restaurants in Javea. On Sundays she is happy relaxing by the pool with a book and her favourite author is Sophie Kinsella. Her guilty pleasure is Peter Andre and she spent most her childhood obsessed with Shakin´ Stevens - although she may deny this!

As a Leo she is independent and likes to be in control and still has bigger plans for VillaMia. Her motto is work hard play hard and anybody that knows her will understand she definitely lives by this.

She set up her own business ' Higher Vision' and works outside of VillaMia with extra contracted work.


Outside of work, Verena loves skiing, swimming, dancing, yoga and Zumba. She spends a lot of time with friends and looking after her pets - 2 dogs, 3 cats and 2 chickens so with that and her husband there isn’t much spare time!

Verena eats anything with avocados and loves sushi but is also known for her coffee drinking and soft spot for chocolate.



Jenni Hyde - rentals manager

Highly organised and focussed in work, she often leaves exhausted but would like to travel more to places like Switzerland and learn new languages.

Victoria has to start the working day with a cafe con leche and tries to stay healthy with salads and bread sticks but pizza is her weak spot!
