Our Local Support Teams
The Thinking Traveller's Local Support Teams in Sicily, Puglia, the Greek Ionian and Sporades Islands, and
Corsica form a fundamental part of our service. Equipped with an enormous passion for their destinations, years of
experience and an unparalleled depth of local knowledge, they are either natives or have lived in their regions
for many years. Their dedication and desire to assist our clients has resulted in The Thinking Traveller's
on-the-ground support being voted the best of any villa rental company in the Condé Nast Traveller Readers' Awards three
Much of their time is spent out on the road meeting people, visiting and auditing properties and exploring their
surrounding areas, and cultivating a large and growing network of specialist suppliers to provide you with access
to Sicily and Puglia and the Ionian Islands that other operators just can’t match!
Part concierges, our Local Managers are always happy to recommend and book the best restaurants, suggest things to
see and do, arrange memorable activities (such as our Think Experiences) and generally act as a resource of local
knowledge to help you get the very best out of your holiday.
And when, very rarely, things don't go entirely according to plan, you are just a phone call away from a solution.
Whether you have a delayed flight, lost luggage, trouble finding your villa, power cuts, concerns with your
accommodation, linguistic incomprehension or anything else, the assistance of our Local Support Teams will be
immediate, sympathetic and decisive.
Over the years our Local Managers have helped prepare villas for (successful!) romantic marriage proposals,
arranged a midnight rescue of a client's dogs from a cave, sourced tickets in the Presidential Box at the theatre,
driven 100s of km to deliver a special birthday cake, spent a day searching for a client's lost wedding ring,
assisted holidaying animal lovers adopt a local cat and much more besides... Is there anything they cannot do?
That's not a challenge, just an assurance that you will be very well looked after during your stay at our villas
in Sicily, Puglia, The Ionian Islands, The Sporades Islands or Corsica!
