After 9 years of finding villas around the world, it’s now time to specialise. Instead of exploring new destinations, my focus for 2019 will be on villas in Italy and France only and a more bespoke service.

Setting up Rachel’s Villa Holidays 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 for 10 years, I knew I was ready to run my own villa holiday business. I started off by organising villa holidays to a number of destinations. I then began to specialise.

My niche is now villas in Italy and France, the two countries I know and love. It is where I have lived and worked and where I spend my own holidays with my family. It is where I have the best contacts with exceptional villas in areas of outstanding natural beauty too. So this is what I can offer you:

A bespoke villa finding service

For a really special villa with pool and staff in Italy or France. I contact not only villa owners but all the best villa companies on your behalf. I then sift out the best and present you with a selection of villas which truly suit you. With me 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 truly 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 and Villas 4 Kids and previously worked at CV Villas for 10 years heading up the Italian villa programme.
