How does Rachel’s Villa Consultancy Service work?
Contact me to arrange a free consultation on the phone or in person. The initial chat is your chance to tell me about your villa and what improvements you would like to see regarding your bookings. So, I can then come up with a plan. My fee is based on the amount of time we need to dedicate to the project and whether you would like me to continue working with you on my recommendations.
To do the review, I usually look at the following broad categories:
Where the bookings come from (agencies, direct, recommendation etc.). Who your clients are and how you collect the information. I will recommend ways to streamline the process, identify the most suitable and effective agencies and your ideal client.
The Guest Experience
From initial enquiry to booking procedure and arrival/departure. Villa information, facilities, amenities, services and testimonials. How can this be improved? I will look at how it is now and recommend ways to improve it.
How do the rental prices and season bands compare with competitors? And should they be adjusted?
Marketing & PR
Your villa website, photography, agency and villa listing sites, Google ads and social media. Also advertising, networking, PR and marketing materials. Is there a budget for this? Should it be streamlined? And what could be introduced to improve it in order to attract and retain your ideal guests?

''I can highly recommend Rachel's Villa Consultancy Services. Rachel's recommendations provided me with lots of new ideas and directions. A fresh perspective on some things already in place... I felt invigorated by Rachel's report and have since successfully implemented a number of initiatives as a direct consequence. Rachel has in-depth knowledge combined with a positive and engaging approach and I hope to continue working with her.''

''I worked with Rachel when she managed the Italian villa programme at CV Travel (now CV Villas). Rachel was a real asset to the company. She has many years of experience in the luxury villa market, and a fantastic eye for design and detail. 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. Her language skills (Italian and French), as well as her charm and elegant style, are the perfect complement to her experience and ability.''
