September 26, 2005: MIAMI – Cottages to Castles, a British-based company that hand selects and rents out unique Italian and Croatian properties, is offering their exceptional vacations in the United States and Canada markets. As these types of vacations have become increasingly popular among discretionary travelers all over the world, Cottages to Castles fills the gap by providing property availability for elite dream vacations, now for the US and Canadian traveler as well.
Robert Hubbard, U.S. spokesman for Cottages to Castles, said that, “Offering this unique service is ideal for travelers who want an economical, yet aesthetically beautiful, private house to retreat to.” Mr. Hubbard has an impressive track record of success in this market and anticipates a growing demand for these specialized bookings. Mr. Hubbard explains, “I’m proud to be associated with an established tour operator, founded 22 years ago, that still holds dear those frequently forgotten, old-fashioned values such as quality, service and a real desire to exceed their clients’ expectations.” He continues, “And yet this is also a very modern company that is at the technological forefront of making villa vacations easy and quick to book, unlike others in the market – in fact, Cottages to Castles are perfectly placed to take the US and Canada by storm!”
The Italian and Croatian villas that are offered to travelers have a unique value that goes beyond standard hotel accommodations. Cottages to Castles’ distinctive inventory of villas, apartments, farmhouses and cottages offer a one-of-a-kind experience in a classically beautiful, and culturally inspiring setting, such as in the picture book countryside of Tuscany or the dramatically scenic Amalfi Peninsula at Positano. While there are many residences that are perfect for lodging couples or smaller groups, there are a number of properties that can accommodate up to 20 people. Many of the properties also have English-speaking hosts on-site or nearby who are available if a traveler needs their counsel.
The selection and booking arrangements for these properties are particularly streamlined: since nearly all properties are exclusive to Cottages to Castles, travel agents have the ability to provide ‘real time’ booking for clients, and tour operators can be supplied with API/XML specifications for integration so that all Cottages to Castles’ inventory of 350+ properties can be displayed online. This means that each traveler has the luxury of getting the villa that they truly want, and that fits their needs, all in double-quick time.
Cottages to Castles really knows Italy. They even have a permanent English-speaking office in Italy so they’re always nearby in case you need them. For 2006, they offer rentable properties in 13 regions of Italy – from a house on Lake Como (almost next door to George Clooney!) to a sumptuous villa in Sicily owned by a marquis, from a quality beach house in Sardinia to a stately farmhouse near Assisi – they have a great selection to offer clients.
