Reasons our Guests Love our Luxury Brand:
In an age of digital assistants, we believe that human touch matters and nothing can replace the experts;
Haute Retreats brings the heart of a luxury retreat. Much more than a simple luxury villa rentals platform, we offer unparalleled hospitality and pride ourselves on rising to meet every anticipated need for our luxury travellers. We may provide luxury accommodation for luxury stays and travel, but we are in the business of providing EXCELLENCE.
Our selected Haute Retreats is growing and it is fully vetted by hospitality and real estate experts and managed by on-site property managers and concierge managers. This way you don’t have to spend anytime researching options or worrying about anything.
Our company is not listed in any of the large sites because we keep our service personalised and we don’t like to brand ourselves as a booking platform website we love to call us the hospitality brand. We are proud partners with ClienteleLuxury.com . We launched HauteRetreats.com in 2016 because we saw there were not sites where only ultimate villas and resorts where listed and the idea behind HauteRetreats.com is to provide a collection of ultimate homes around unique locations where you can experience a luxury and memorable vacation. We love creating great connections with the professionals who welcome our guests in the different locations. We do our work with the heart of the real hospitality. Year by year we have raised and assist our guests with pride with one goal: exceed their expectations and create a memorable experience.
Our unique luxury villa rentals service offers a premium value we offer you that exact home comfort you’ve always desired. We create also wonderful tailor made itineraries and experiences where we select unique activities, tours and luxury services.
We now live near Venice, Italy, in a small town with our two children, who were born here but lived in Costa Rica for four years and travel in USA. We have been meeting thousands of people, flying all over, driving miles/kilometres to always strive and provide the best travel experiences.
We are honoured to assist you with your travels.
