About Rachel's Villa Holidays

A Unique Villa Holiday Specialist

Setting up Rachel’s Villa Holidays in 2009 was a natural step from a full-time position in a luxury villa company to working for myself. Having learned the ropes running an Italian villa programme at CV Villas, I knew I was ready to run my own villa holiday business.

Why Italy and France?

I started off by organising villa holidays to a number of destinations. I then began to specialise. My niche is now luxury villas in Italy and luxury villas in France. Why those two countries in particular?  It is because they are the places I know best and love. It is where I have lived and worked and where I spend my own holidays with my family. Why luxury villas? It is because I have the excellent contacts with exceptional villas in areas of outstanding natural beauty in both countries.

What can I offer you?

A bespoke villa finding service.

For a really special holiday villa with pool and staff in Italy or France, my excellent villa finding service will help you source the best villa for you. Unlike villa companies and listing sites, I am not restricted to a set portfolio of villas. Instead, I source my recommendations from a range of reliable contacts including all the best villa companies and a personal network of reliable owners and managers, sifting out your perfect match. The villas range in style and size, from large converted farmhouses and bijou coastal cottages to historic castles and luxury villas in Italy or luxury villas in France. With me on board finding your holiday home, you can save time by avoiding hours of online research and you can be assured that the villa you book will be ideal.


Villa owner consultancy.

If you own a villa in Italy or France and need advice about how to increase your bookings, I can help you work out the best way to do it successfully. Whether you choose to rent through a reputable agent, listing site, personal website or a combination, I can give you valuable advice and practical help.


Villa company consultancy.

I love working on PR, marketing and product development projects for villa companies. So please contact me for availability if you need help with your Italian or French villa portfolios. For the last 10 years I have worked on various projects as an independent consultant for Simpson Travel, Massimo Villa Collection, Oliver’s Travels and Villas 4 Kids.
