It’s time to toss out

the guidebook.

Your most important luxury is time. That’s why, from our first contact to your fond farewell, Hosted Villas works to make your vacation stress-free. Our Villa Specialists draw on 20 years of “we’ve been there” trip-planning knowledge, so your itinerary is as unique as you are. Whatever you desire, our team will arrange it: airport and rail greeters, child care, cooking classes, wine tastings, language lessons – the list goes on. We will provide customized travel experiences that you’d be hard-pressed to arrange on your own.

Once you arrive in Europe, the Hosted Villas ground team – Our Local Hosts – take over. You’ll be met at the train station and guided to the villa, where you’ll find your pantry fully stocked. All you have to do is open the wine or jump in the pool – or both. Then, when you’ve relaxed from your journey, put yourself in the hands of your Local Host, who lives and breathes the region. They’ll share their insider experience and tips, and they’ll work throughout your stay to make sure you have the villa vacation of your dreams.

Hosted Villas was the first company to offer high-end, fully hosted villa vacations, specifically for North America travelers. We’re extremely selective, picking the most exquisite and charming homes in each region for our portfolio. Our villas provide luxury, authenticity and local flavour, combined with the comfort and conveniences of a 5-star hotel.
