Expert Review

Renting through a sterling agency is the best way to ensure a problem-free villa vacation. But just as no two homes are alike, neither are the agencies. Hosted Villas is exceptionally picky, offering just a under 100 rentals in France, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Scotland, Turks and Caicos, and Argentina. All are luxurious yet authentic historic homes that are comfortable enough to live in.

The agency assigns a complimentary concierge to help visitors at each of their leased properties – someone who greets the rental party on arrival and can do anything from organizing a sightseeing excursion to setting up a cooking class in the villa. Renters can expect beamed ceilings and antiques, but also ample living space and Gaggenau appliances. But Hosted Villas’ real coup is its Local Host program, which essentially furnishes one’s dream house with the requisite dream friend. The host can suggest hiking routes, secure museum tickets, reserve local tennis courts, and arrange private wine tastings at a vineyard. He or she will shepherd guests through the village market, introduce them to the area’s olive oil producer, and point the way to the little café that locals love best. 2010 Smart Luxury Award winner
