Long Term Lets in Javea, Moraira and Benitachell

Meet The VillaMia Team

Michelle Hughes owner

With a BA (hons) in Business Administration, Michelle always wanted to run her own business. After 13 years of 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 mad 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 within the past two years has enjoyed a Mediterranean cruise, experienced Las Vegas, and explored Spain's amazing city of Seville, Salou and Estarti. Javea is great for easy weekends in Valencia and Alicante. She is looking forward to her next big trip is Disney World in Orlando. 

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!

Cheryl Longfield is director of sales for VillaMia. She has lived in Spain since she was 5, so is fluent in the language, and has over 20 years experience in the Spanish housing market. Cheryl, aka Chez, knows the legal side and paperwork inside out! Whether is NIE numbers, dealing with Town Hall, architects, or lawyers, she has the knowledge and contacts in all areas. If you need something complicated sorted Cheryl is definitely the one that can organise it.

As a child she used to compete in horse riding competitions and getting involved with Spanish traditions such as bull running. At 17 she starting working at a very successful estate agents and from there developed her skills and contacts to carry out all aspects of paperwork in Spain. Juggling work with a husband and 3 children, she doesn’t get much spare time but enjoys her pampering sessions and odd night out.

Her favourite food Mexican is she is known to order a few pina colada cocktails. Her party trick is being able to balance a try of drinks on her head and after a few drinks you need to keep her away from the bucking bull in Benidorm. Being competitive she is always keen to beat her personal best from years ago when they struggled to remove her.

Cheryl´s husband Trevor has had a building company in Javea for over 15 years – QBS – and carries out the maintenance for VillaMia properties.

If she could have a night with anyone it would be George Clooney and she has Christian Grey’s phone number in her contacts. (She will blush if you just say his name.)

Another Leo, Cheryl is straight talking, ambitious and brings the fun element to the office.
