The Go-To Villa Holiday Specialist for France and Italy
Rachel’s Villa Holidays is a bespoke villa holiday consultancy service offered by an independent travel expert. Set up by Rachel in 2010, the service offers informed guidance to villa guests and villa owners, with a focus on luxury villas with pools in Italy and France. Rachel is an experienced villa holiday specialist, having worked for over 20 years in the villa holiday industry.
The Villa Finding Service
Unlike villa companies and listing sites, Rachel is not restricted to offering a set number of villas from a portfolio. Instead, for each enquiry Rachel sources villas from all the best villa companies and her personal network of villa owners on behalf of her clients. With Rachel on board finding your villa, you can save time by avoiding hours of online research and you can be assured that the villa you book will be perfect for you.
The Villa Owner Consultancy Service
For villa owners who need help finding their ideal guests, Rachel offers bespoke advice and practical help covering all aspects of villa rentals. From choosing the right villa company or listing site, creating a villa website, making a villa more desirable, photography, marketing, setting rental prices and more, Rachel will give you the tools to make your rentals a success.
Rachel is a villa holiday specialist who has worked in luxury villa rentals since 1998, so offers a wealth of experience, knowledge and contacts. Based in London, Rachel speaks Italian and French and travels regularly to Italy and France.
''I've used Rachel's villa finding service twice now – I honestly don't know why you would book your own ever again. Rachel is far more knowledgeable about the areas than I am, she knows what sort of questions to ask owners that you wouldn't think of, and she is flexible and patient as you narrow down the parameters to find what you really want. Can't recommend highly enough''
”I worked with Rachel when she managed the Italian villa programme at CV Travel (now CV Villas). Her interpersonal skills are excellent, and villa owners established strong bonds with her, resulting in great loyalty. She is also an expert in brochure production, website development, contracting and negotiating.”
