Virtuoso and Luxury Retreats partner to meet increased demand for private homes and villas
Global agent network Virtuoso has partnered with Airbnb owned Luxury Retreats following increased demand for private luxury homes.
The two businesses have formed a strategic partnership in a bid to meet demand for ‘immersive villa stays’.
Virtuoso members will now have access to more than 4,000 private villas around the world.
Albert Herrera, senior vice president of global product partnerships at Virtuoso, said: “Over the past year, we’ve seen demand for private villas reach new heights with a 40% year-over-year increase in bookings, leading us to seek out more products and services to feed this skyrocketing trend.
“People want to experience destinations as if they’re living like residents, and many times they want seclusion and privacy as well. Whether it’s a Parisian pied-à-terre, beachfront getaway in Malibu or private island in the Caribbean, Luxury Retreats’ portfolio keeps Virtuoso’s industry-leading Hotels & Resorts programme at the forefront of traveller demand.”
