The Go-To Villa Holiday Specialist for France and Italy
Finding a villa for a holiday in Italy or France can take ages.
It doesn’t need to.
Whether you are seeking a rural retreat, a beach house or a magnificent country estate, I’ll help you source your perfect holiday villa in an exceptional location.
Unlike villa companies and listing sites, I offer an independent service. It means that I am not restricted by a set portfolio of villas owned by people who rely on me to provide them with bookings. Instead, I have the freedom to source the best villas for you via the most reputable villa companies and my personal network of villa owners. It gives you a better choice.
''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.”
