Why book with Specialty Villas?

Specialty Villas, very simply, offers Italy's and Provence's best, most luxurious places to stay. From country villas to apartments in cities like Florence and Venice, we offer an idiosyncratic curated inventory of luxurious, unique properties. As a division of Specialty Cruise & Villas, a leading Virtuoso Travel Agency, we specialize in luxury and endavour to find our clients the most authentic and rewarding travel experiences available. We inspect these properties on a regular basis, and  are ultimatly responsible that they maintain their standards. Furthermore, because we are a full service travel agency, we also provide all the additional services that can make your stay special, such as personalized tours, transfers, epcial events, etc. 

We do not represent just one property management firm, or a couple villa owners, but have chosen the best villas from a number of reliable, established property managers, as well as the homes of some very unique individuals. If you are looking for truly luxury properties, you need look no further. We have done your research for you. Each property we feature is fully explained, and supported with photographs. All have modern kitchens and bathrooms. We have visited the far majority of our properties within the last two years and would love to share our feelings about them with you..

Please note that ALL our properties are priced in U.S. Dollars, and the price is guaranteed from time of deposit. There is no worrying about exchange rates, or paying your banks ridiculous conversion fees, which usually add 6-10% to the wholesale exchange rate. Unlike many villa rental companies, we do not charge any fees; no booking fees, administration fees, credit card fees or taxes. Our prices are all-inclusive. Also, we are located in the U.S, and have been here for 20 years. You are not dealaing with an unknown villa owner in Europe, or a company in Italy, from which you'll have no recourse in case of problems, but a respected US member of the Virtuoso Tavel network, who has been in the villa rental business for 20 years and is an A+ rated meber of the Better Business Bureau. 

We partner with the travel agency community, regardless of consortia.
