My Private Villas is a collection of luxury properties available for rent directly from their owners in some of the most exclusive destinations in the world.

Renting directly from the owner makes eminent sense – in addition to presenting substantial savings and greater flexibility, guests are guaranteed a range of individualized services and options.

My Private Villas is an eclectic mix of modern, leading edge, designer and historic houses with the portfolio offering a diverse range from private islands, beachfront pads, wine estates, a converted lighthouse, city apartments and family heritage properties.

Whether you have the chance to own an exceptional home and you want to make it available for rent or you are looking for staying in an unusual, historical or spectacular property that is not easily accessible, this is an exclusive club worth joining.

Each property has its own customised services to ensure every visit is tailor made for an unforgettable experience.

Properties are meticulously vetted before owners can join the club and the majority are to be found in the most desirable destinations in the world.

From the French and the Italian Rivieras to the Caribbeans, from ski resorts to golf, scuba, horse riding or other sporting estates, from wine and olive oil domains to fabulously restored chateaux, My Private Villas has managed to put together an outstanding collection of dreamed properties.

Prime locations globally include Cote d’Azur, Amalfi Coast, Tuscany, Asia Pacific, Greek Islands, Caribbean, South America, through to the Swiss and French Alps.

‘People seeking luxury are now moving more towards the rental market as our villas provide a 5* service but you spend less than in a 5* hotel. The experience becomes personal as the villa becomes your home for your holiday’ indicated the company founder and CEO, Paolo Macchiaroli.

An authority in the luxury villa sector, Paolo Macchiaroli was selected by The Academy of the World Boutique Hotel Award to develop and launch their new ‘Private Villa’ category.

My Private Villas offers their properties for rent directly to discerning guests at rates that are lower than anywhere else.

The team is dedicated to put together a package of privileges, preferential rates and bespoke services such as booking front row seats for a show or tables at a trendy restaurant or a personal shopper.

Additionally, the club’s multilingual managers are committed to make the booking process smoother and to address any questions. The dedicated local house managers are on hand to look after guests’ needs during their stay and generally manage the property.

The properties enrolled in the club portfolio are not just holiday villas. They can be rented for private weddings, corporate and team building events.

The company now has over 400 villas across 26 countries in some of the most exclusive destinations in the world. My Private Villas website is the proud winner of the prestigious Web Award 2015 category Hotels and Lodging Standard of Excellence.
