(May 29, 2012) — As ‘hybrid club concept’ Private Trade Winds reached its five-year anniversary in late April, 2012, the company decided to revitalize their portfolio by offering new villa product in the most sought after destinations. Hand-selecting villas that appeal to those seeking a culturally rich and diverse travel experience, the company initially surprised its clients with two new offerings in Italy; a 9,000 square foot 7-bedroom villa on Lake Como and a charming 9-bedroom classic villa in Tuscany (pictured). The inclusion of the Lake Como villa adds a new destination to its previous portfolio.
The company followed those two villas with two more in early May, one in Italy and one in France. In Italy they announced a newly remodeled 7-bedroom estate overlooking the sparkling waters of the Amalfi Coast in Italy. The gourmet kitchen and wine cellar will no doubt appeal to clients who crave an authentic Italian culinary experience, while the historic nature of the region will delight historians of classic European art and heritage.
In France they released their 8-bedroom, 9,600 square foot, seaside villa on the Arcachon Bay just a short drive from the coveted wine region of Bordeaux. This villa, which provides the company with a brand new destination in France, was graciously donated by the owner as a live auction item for the Juvenile Diabetes gala that took place in March. It was the highlight of the evening’s travel collection with a value of $28,000 for the week donation.
The launch of the new portfolio was also prompted by company owner/founder Irene Aviles’ commitment to keeping ahead of the curve for their dedicated clients. “Hotels and Resorts are wonderful, and they provide the typical vacation that we have all known and loved since childhood. Villa travel elevates that same vacation to a whole new level, which tends to be much more experiential in nature,” said Aviles.
