Villa Rentals and Custom Travel Planning for the Discerning Traveler

Classic Vacation Rental.com is a boutique agency specializing in personalized service for vacation rentals of Villas in Italy, France, elsewhere in Europe and ski resorts such as Whistler/Blackcomb. Classic Vacation Rental.com was formed specifically to help the sophisticated traveler experience a vacation in Europe that goes beyond the usual 'a few days here a few days there' approach. By concentrating on the areas we know well - we seek to provide an optimum experience by providing a few high quality villa and farmhouse rentals, chalets and apartments, as well as travel advice.

Our goal is to help bring you as close as possible to the dream vacation you have in mind. Our specialists have devoted their business life to the art of travel, and truly enjoy sharing their knowledge with the client. Together we have more than 20 years experience in the travel industry. We firmly believe that it is important to know the properties - so that we can be sure we are sending you to a place just right for you. We travel on a regular basis to view the properties - as well as to find new ones

This business is our passion - we truly love Europe - particularly Italy and France, as well as the people we have met. The owners and/or managers of the rental properties you will find on these pages are truly delightful. My colleague and I have travelled to Italy and France many times - and have seen wonderful villas, renovated farmhouses, and ancient Borgos (hamlets) that have been turned in to lovely residences. We have collected names of restaurants and sites to see, hints and tips for various areas.

We work with clients before arrival, not only to find a suitable house, but to help them with their particular needs: finding cooks, maids, guides, local entertainment, giving advice on the best restaurants, and advising you about local events and festivals.
In addition, ClassicVacationRental.com can help organize unique focused vacations such as cooking schools, artist retreats, etc.


Europe: Classic Vacation Rental.com has developed connections with the owners or managers of several high quality properties ranging from grand villas, hamlets beautifully restored into residences and apartments, to a few tastefully restored country houses. Included, as part of every rental that we manage is pre-arrival travel advice and communication. Services and advice include:
