From luxurious sunshine villas to cosy ski chalets in the mountains 

Luxury Villa Living makes all of the arrangements so all clients have to do is enjoy quality time away with the family

With families looking ahead to winter escapes and 2022 retreats, niche bonded tour operator Luxury Villa Living is already seeing an increased desire for villa holidays for next year – particularly those that are fully staffed so everyone can have a break and enjoy quality time together.

Sophie Georgiou, Director of Luxury Villa Living, says: “Beyond stunning villas and superior in-villa service, luxury travellers are looking for bespoke itineraries and experiences that cater for everyone in the group. While some members of the family may want to unwind with a spa treatment, others are taking to the water on kayaks and paddleboards before everyone meets up for dinner or other family activities. The overall holiday experience is perhaps more important now than ever before and families want to maximise every moment of that time away, so bespoke tour operators, like ourselves, will be key to meeting every holiday desire, once we get back to travelling.”

To help families find their perfect holiday for this winter or 2022, Luxury Villa Living is sharing some of its best villa experiences*, from tropical living in Thailand and contemporary retreats in the Algarve to luxury villas in the Caribbean and snow-capped escapades in Courchevel.
