We are proud partners with ClienteleLuxury.com .

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 the expectations and create a memorable vacation.
Our unique luxury villa rentals service offers a premium value than our contemporaries as we’ll give you that exact home comfort you’ve always desired. We create also wonderful packages where we selected unique activities or tours in the different areas.
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 experience.
We believe we have lucky children and we are honoured to assist you with your travels.

Incite, Inform, Inspire
The Sabrina Luxury Collection luxury travel brand was launched in 2012 when we lived in Costa Rica during a life-changing holiday of two weeks that became four years life in the Pura Vida land.
When we arrive and stay there we realised we needed to bring and share our experience in the luxury hospitality industry and luxury travel experience with the locals and to bring more discerning travellers in Costa Rica.
We loved Guanacaste very much and proud to call it home for four wonderful years. We saw that there were great luxury properties but few were offering a luxury experience to the travellers. In December of 2010 we launched Escape Vacation Villas offering the properties we were managing (at the beginning few beachfront apartments and than properties within Reserva Conchal resort and beachfront villas within Hacienda Pinilla) located in the Guanacaste area. We provided transportation to grocery shopping delivery to all of our guests and collaborating with the best professionals in the area. With Escape Vacation Villas we became the point of reference for exceptional properties and service in the Guanacaste area and we built an international reputation for exceptional service and always 24/7 on call service being also the property managers on site.
“En los años que vivimos en Costa Rica… Gracias a la gestión siempre efectiva de empresa de Sabrina Piccinin, tuvimos la oportunidad de conseguir los mejores lugares de vacaciones en familia y con amigos. Unas villas espectaculares y con precios bastantes accesibles y competitivos. Recomendada 100% para planificar sus próximas vacaciones en cualquier parte del mundo.” – Ariel Grullòn
We specialised in Costa Rica alone for four years, growing our team of experts there. Our repeat guests began asking us about suggestions for other destinations and if we could help them arranging their trips and vacations in other locations. So since we are experienced travellers, Sabrina Piccinin, the founder, worked in the luxury hospitality business for the last 22 years travelling and working in USA for Hyatt and Italy, we decided to launch Sabrina Luxury Collection in 2012 with few villas located in the St. Martin area. In 2014 we moved back to Italy (our home country) due to the fact that we wanted our children to attend the school in Italy. We became a point of reference for luxury travel. People reach us for suggestions about where to eat in Venice, where to stay in Costa Rica, what to do in Italy…and we are always happy to share our knowledge. Our office is located near Venice Italy, the setting is strategically near unique locations like Lake Como, Croatia, Tuscany, French Riviera that we travelled the last few years and always on the road to verify and inspect the villas and hotels listed in these locations for our clients. Sabrina the founder has more than 20 years experience in the luxury hospitality field, been a general manager for luxury hotels required her to always make sure to keep high standards in the properties she managed. check her profile here
