Our Collections

For those of you who have certain specifics in mind…

On The Beach

Many of our properties are in sought-after coastal locations, but the houses you’ll find here are literally on the beach, close enough to hear the sound of the waves and feel the sand between your toes. If beachfront bliss is your holiday priority, then these are the houses for you.


We have many houses around the world with their own tennis courts, often with an ‘on tap’ coach to give lessons should you wish. Other houses offer easy access to tennis clubs, while in France it seems practically every village has a local court to play on. 


More and more often we get asked for properties large enough for big family gatherings, get-togethers with friends, special celebrations or two or more families travelling together. The houses here have space for everyone. All come with maids and many have cooks.


Searching for the perfect surf break? From the barrels of Bali to the beach breaks of south-west France, we know where to go to catch the best waves. Surf schools are available in most of our surf spots and children can start young. Call if you don’t see what you are looking for.


We understand that if you have teenagers, you might want different things from a villa than if you’re with adults or young children. The villas here have been selected not only for the wide range of activities they provide, but also for the space and the freedom they offer teenagers.

Small & Romantic

Planning your honeymoon or looking for a bit of time ‘a deux’? We’ve several houses built for romance, from a one-bed villa with its own pool in Corfu, to a shepherd’s hut overlooking one of Corsica’s most beautiful bays, with hand-baked pastries delivered every morning.

Private Islands

Private islands are the ultimate getaway and the ultimate dream. They come with boats, staff and private beaches. Some are no-shoes, no-news kinds of places, others are sophisticated, elegant, quasi-private resorts, perfect for family celebrations.

Off The Beaten Track

For the more adventurous and intrepid among you, our off-the-beaten-track houses may be tricky to get to but the rewards for journeying to such magical places really can’t be overstated – a chance to switch off and slow down, to unwind, to breathe, to explore.


“There is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about on boats,” says Ratty to Mole in The Wind in the Willows. We tend to agree. All of these houses either come with a boat that’s available to charter or have a mooring of their own.  


From the fairways of France to the greens of the Algarve, we have houses at some of the top golfing destinations around the world. And who needs a clubhouse when you can return after 18 holes to your own private villa for a dip in the pool and a chef-prepared meal?


From the British Virgin Island to Belize and from the Mediterranean to the coast of east Africa, we’ve houses at some of the best dive spots in the world. Several are near PADI dive centres and suitable for everyone from experienced divers to those hoping to get certified.  

Splendid Isolation

For those wanting to get away from it all, these isolated edens offer no neighbours and no noise, save perhaps for the birds or the crashing of the sea. These are houses where solitude is celebrated, that offer space to think and breathe in splendid but luxurious surroundings.
