James Bond fans can stay in Ian Fleming's villa where he wrote all of the books

James Bond fans could go on the ultimate spy-inspired break, in the very villa where Ian Fleming created the beloved spy series.

In fact, The Fleming Villa at GoldenEye in Jamaica is where the acclaimed author wrote every single one of the James Bond novels.

Nowadays, you can actually book the villa out for a holiday, and it makes for a getaway we reckon James Bond himself would find luxurious.

We're talking a private beach, an on-site heliport, a personal chef, butler and housekeeper... we're starting to wonder if it's the stuff a Bond villain would dream of.

 

 

The villa consists of a main house and two guest cottages, and has everything you could want for an idyllic stay.

For example, the private beach has secret coves, or you can wander through the tropical gardens to take a dip in the private pool.

No wonder Ian Fleming found so much inspiration for the glamorous settings in his novels.

Guests can of course follow in the author's footsteps and take in some pieces of Bond history - including sitting at the same desk where Ian wrote the world-famous novels.

Looking for something to do nearby?

The main GoldenEye complex boasts a spa, Bizot Bar with seriously delicious cocktails, and restaurant Gazebo which offers some beautiful views.

Oh, and if you do want some action-packed adventures, there are facilities for water sports, tennis, mountain biking and even fishing.

Tempted to stay? Unfortunately, you're going to need to splash the cash for a stay, as average prices start from £6,640 per night on HomeAway .

(It sleeps up to 10 people so if you fill the property that's £664pp).
