The Condé Nast Traveller Readers' Travel Awards
September 2016: we were delighted to be once again voted Favourite Villa Rental Company at the 2016 edition of the Condé Nast Traveller Readers' Awards. According to the official citation, we received “exceptionally high marks across the board” and were lauded by voters for our “unshakeable consistency”.
We are particularly proud to receive this accolade as it constitutes a direct vote of confidence from our clients, those who have travelled with us, those who know what we stand for, those who have first-hand experience of our villas, our passion, our knowledge and our desire to go the extra mile. Thanks to all of you who voted for us. We really appreciate your support but what makes us most happy is that you had a great holiday with us!
The 2016 awards were great news for our destinations too: in the Favourite Islands category the Greek Islands came second and Sicily fourth (with special mention for its food), while in the Favourite Countries category Greece grabbed the top spot, with Italy coming a close second.
Winning the accolade of Favourite Villa Rental Company in 2016 is just the latest in a long series of successes at the UK’s premier travel awards. We have consistently been voted as one of the ‘Top 10 Villa Rental Companies’ since 2007, winning the Favourite Villa Rental Company award in 2011 and coming second in both 2012 and 2015. We are the only villa rental company to achieve Top 3 rankings every year between 2011 and 2016. We have also received specific commendations for offering the ‘best range of villas and facilities’, the ‘best presentation of villas’ and the ‘best on the ground support’ (three times).
In November 2013, Huw and Rossella Beaugié, founders of The Thinking Traveller, were interviewed by The Sunday Times Business on how they created and built up the award-winning villa rental company. Read the full article here >>
