1. The Collectionist: an online platform specialising in luxury holiday rentals
Halfway between a high-end hotel and a luxury Airbnb, The Collectionist is committed to offering you the best holidays. Since 2013, the platform has been offering exclusive properties for rent between individuals all over the world. Eliott Cohen Skalli, Max Aniort and Olivier Cahané, the three French founders, are committed to selecting residences, villas or even castles that are remarkable for their aesthetics, location and history. At Villas, we particularly appreciate the rustic chalets of the iconic collection and their idyllic setting in the heart of the French Alps.
To make the most of your holiday, the platform offers the highest level of tailor-made experience. It offers a concierge service before and during your stay to ensure that your holiday is as stress-free as possible. Memorable activities are also devised by the concierges (the Tailors) to immerse you in the atmosphere and the world of the destination.
2. Little Guest: a high-end concierge service for unforgettable family holidays
“Our mission is to offer parents the most inspiring selection of kid-friendly hotels, at the best price”, that’s the whole concept of Little Guest: a no-fuss holiday, designed for demanding families. Travelling with children is no easy task. That’s why Little Guest offers a service that combines two programmes: maximum relaxation for the adults (gastronomy, spa, golf, etc.) and entertainment (sports classes, club, creative activities) for the little ones. This way, parents and children can enjoy a pleasant stay in the world’s most beautiful hotels. A real family break from time and everyday life.
3. Sphere Travel Club: exchange or rent prestigious holiday homes
Feel at home anywhere in the world? It’s possible, thanks to Sphere Travel Club and its holiday home exchange concept. A way to travel differently in places that make sense. Members of the community are carefully selected and must meet important criteria such as owning a well-located second home, with well-designed decoration and modern facilities.
Sphere brings together trusted homeowners who share a love of travel to exceptional places. Members make their homes available during unoccupied weeks and in exchange, they benefit from top-of-the-range stays in the Sphere catalogue. At Villas, we’re drawn to far-flung destinations, like Goa in India: a private piece of paradise on the other side of the world.
4. Voyageurs du monde: a high-end agency committed to sustainable tourism
