Welcome to our new Villa Collection blog!
Thanks for taking the time to visit our website and our blog. We thought we would use our first blog to introduce you to us and give you some background on why The Villa Collection has been born. As founders of the company with backgrounds in the tourism industry, Andrea and myself have a combined experience of marketing hotels and working in tour operations, both in the Caribbean and the UK. With our understanding of both sides of the business we wanted to bring our wealth of knowledge to the benefit of customers in search of great service and amazing villa holidays!
By why villas specifically? Over the years we have been fortunate to have travelled extensively, having visited and stayed in many luxurious resorts along the way. However, It was during a cocktail party at a villa in Barbados a few years ago that the seed was really sown! Villas offer not only privacy, space and a personlised service that most hotels could only wish to give customers, but they also offer fantastic value. Indeed, during the party, whilst looking around the villa and at their rate sheets we realised that if we returned with some friends we could experience this beautiful house to ourselves for only £50 each a night! What incredible value.
Over the years we have worked and met with villa owners and villa resorts but have struggled to find a tour operator that really understand what villa clients really want. We have decided to make it our mission to put our clients at the centre of what we do. We have selected both popular and lesser known destinations to offer a range of firm favourites alongside those that we are passionate about bringing much deserved attention.
We will share lots of our insights, news, updates and share our own travels with you in this blog. Stay tuned for upcoming articles about our services, what to expect from a villa holiday, and reports from our recent visits to Barbados, the British Virgin Islands and the Cayman Islands…coming soon!
Happy reading and happy travels!
