Romantic Hideaways

Luxury villas to rent for Special Occasions

What we think

Planning your Honeymoon, or just feel you could do with a bit of 'a deux' time? A private villa is a great alternative to staying in a hotel - total privacy yet with all the comforts. From a one bedroom villa with its own pool in north east Corfu to a shepherds hut (yes - but not exactly!) with hand baked pastries delivered to your door every morning overlooking one of the most beautiful bays in Corsica. You would be surprised by what we can rustle up when asked. We've even had someone propose at one of our gorgeous beach villas in the BVI's - no pressure!
