We take the stress out of your search by being selective about the villas we feature. We filter so that you don't have to.
Book with the most direct and knowledgeable person with whom to make the booking and negotiate the best market rate available.
Unlike the mass market booking platforms, we verify all our villas and only work with experienced owners and the best property managers.
Each property comes with local management so there will always be someone on hand with expert knowledge of the villa.
All our villas offer maid services and if a cook isn’t included it can often be arranged by the host to give you the holiday you deserve.
If you’re unsure which villa to choose we are on hand to recommend the best option and personally refer you to the most appropriate host.
The Villa Collective is very much a product of our age: an online platform for luxury villas, connecting discerning travellers directly with owners and managers with properties to rent in Europe's top holiday destinations.
The concept was devised and created by father-and-son team Richard and Nick Cookson, Richard having co-founded CV Travel, one of the original luxury tour operators, in 1972. The Villa Collective harnesses their considerable experience to create a curated portfolio of luxury villas which can be rented directly from owners and managers.
The format draws on the increasing appetite for travellers to book holidays direct with the villa owners while also working with agents or ‘professional managers’ with a direct line to them.
The platform provides a cost-effective way for villa hosts to connect with new clients, allowing the website to offer a broad selection of villas across multiple destinations without compromising on the knowledge of each villa and the region in which it is set.
We extend a warm welcome to The Villa Collective. Whether you are the owner of a beautiful villa, a professional manager in need of additional exposure or a holidaymaker in search of that perfect escape, we aim to provide the answers you need.
