Chic Villas: luxury villas and chateaux rentals in France and SpainA LA UNE
Chic Villas is a French luxury property rental company with ten years’ experience of organizing vacations at premium villas and chateaux.
We are based in France’s Loire Valley. The region is known as the cradle of kings, so if there’s one thing we know about, it’s chateaux. Whether it’s fairy-tale castles like the one that inspired the author of Sleeping Beauty, or medieval fortresses that conjure up images of brave knights, every castle lining the banks of the Loire has its own story to tell.
But why settle for visiting a castle when you can rent one for yourself? Our majestic chateaux properties provide the space, privacy and dash of excitement that will guarantee an unforgettable experience. Beautifully sculpted architecture and acres of luxurious grounds create the perfect backdrop for a French getaway family and friends.
Chic Villas for the perfect vacation
Once you’ve found your dream destination, we’ll go the extra mile to make sure your vacation is everything you wish for. From practical services like an airport transfer, pre-arrival shop , private chef or babysitter, to something a little bit special like a trip in a hot air balloon, we can make it happen. So, whether you’d like us to arrange outings or guided tours, cooking lessons or wine-tasting with a sommelier, just leave it with us.
We handpick and inspect every property and tailor our guests’ experience to cater to their requirements, so you can be sure that you’re in safe hands. We know what it’s like to travel with kids, and most of our properties are ideal for families – if they’re not for any reason, then we’ll tell you.
We have a wide selection of luxury properties in France, Spain and Italy (which just so happen to be some of the sunniest countries in Europe). Whether you’re looking for a sleek luxury villa on the Spanish Costa Brava, a cute French cottage among the olive trees of Provence, or like the idea of staying in a castle in the Loire Valley, then we have exactly what you’re looking for.
Where should you head to in Europe?
France makes a great all-round destination. The south-east promises the lavender fields of Provence and the glitzy Côte d’Azur, while the west is great for exploring the Bordeaux vineyards and chatting to the local winemakers, or embracing your inner French chic at the castles in the Loire Valley.
Spain has sea, sunshine and sandy beaches galore. Think sleek luxury villas in hilltop locations with breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea, where the only choice you’ll have to make is whether to chill by your private pool or head out to explore the area. The vibrant buzz of Barcelona is balanced out with the rustic charm of picturesque inland villages.
Italy is reputed for la dolce vita, and pretty much invented the art of slow living. Experience it first-hand, enjoying great food and wine in Tuscany and taking in the leaning tower of Pisa and romantic sights aplenty.
