Holiday Homes Round The World
“Holiday Homes Round The World” is a project of love by Italian successful property owners Antonio Bortolotti and Cristina Benincasa.
World travellers for over 20 years, they covered more than 50 countries, collecting countless memorable experiences. Staying in luxury hotels, hip resorts, simple B&Bs and authentic holiday homes as part of their daily travel routine, they gained considerable expertise in choosing the perfect getaway for the perfect holiday.
Nowadays, they prefer the homey feel of holiday homes rather than the quintessential chic of cozy yet sometimes impersonal hotel rooms. They often seek their perfect hideaway with such an attentive eye and an exceptional care for details that their highly demanding standards led them to build a considerable list of outstanding yet (for the major part) affordable properties.
As acclaimed travel journalist Lara Dunston wrote on “Grantourismo“, “with holiday rentals, it’s the little things that make a difference” and no one better than Antonio and Cristina know what she means when it comes to the little luxuries that make a stay really special, as they “win the award for Best Welcome Package” in their own award winning Sardinian property, Casa Teulada.
“Holiday Homes Round The World” is their next step: building a sustainable source of unparalleled information on where to find the most appealing, inspiring, amazing retreats to rent for the best time of the year. And make such resource widely available online to an ever increasing community of fellow holidaymakers.
