As someone who likes to stay in villas and chateaux and enjoy a French luxury holiday; when myself and my partner go away, I get a bit annoyed that when looking for information. Often it was just generally a list of properties, no information on the local area, you don’t know what other people think (unless they have online reviews) and what activities there are to do in the area.
Well before our last holiday I decided I didn’t just want to look at a list of properties and started looking for a more informative source, after a long search I finally found ChicVillas.
These guys know how to do a holiday rental site, I was looking to take my partner and our family away for our fifth wedding anniversary. I had a perusal of the site and thought oh this is just going to be the same but this whole thought process changed the moment I not only read the home page where they state “We visit and evaluate all properties on our site” but as soon as I clicked through to the property you could tell with all of the information that they showed that they had actually been there in person.
Chateau in the South of France
I decided to go for a french chateau to rent in the south of France, the property was amazing when we arrived, but before arrival I contacted the people on ChicVillas and tried to test their local knowledge, when asking about a restaurant that I could take our large family to, they reeled off a list of locally sourced produce based places to eat. The guys and gals at ChicVillas really do know the properties and locations that they advertise on their site, the information that they display on the properties which is great but the actual personal knowledge that they have is invaluable.
Since the first trip, I have since gone back and booked upcoming holiday through them as well and to be honest I don’t have the same trepidation that I would normally have booking a holiday away in a different country now.
I know the property will be amazing and that when I am looking at descriptions I know that they have been written by a human being that has actually been to the property and also enjoyed and investigated the local areas, so when it comes to booking your next luxury french villa make sure you check out the team at ChicVillas.
