The Finest Luxurious Villas Across the World
As vaccine distribution continues in many countries, we are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel for travel restrictions. We consider ourselves experts in planning vacations that are not only memorable, but also give priority to your safety. If you are excited to book a trip after the pandemic in 2021 or 2022, but want to limit contact with people outside your group, consider a private villa! It is one of the safest ways to travel and experience a fantastic destination.
Why is a villa vacation one of the safest forms of travel right now?
Not only are private villas ideal for families and groups, but you will also be able to limit your contact with others outside of your home. There will be no shared facilities and you will be completely isolated, allowing you to relax in complete safety and comfort. Booking a private villa is different from a typical holiday rental (like Airbnb) because most villas have many other benefits, such as delicious meals and one-off activities.
From properties that can accommodate your whole family in the impressive Serengeti to the luxurious houses located among peaceful rice fields in Bali, here is our selection of the best private villas around the world.
1 Laragai House, Kenya
