Villas of Distinction’s booking trends reveal the most popular destinations

Wilmington, Mass. (December 19, 2018) – Villas of Distinction®, the world’s premier luxury villa rental company as part of World Travel Holdings, announces 2019’s most sought after villa vacation destinations based on industry insights — Italy, Barbados, Turks & Caicos, Jamaica and Orlando, Fla.

  1. Italy – “Traditionally, Italy has been a strong destination for Villas of Distinction, said Steve Lassman, vice president of villa product & agency relations. “Guests want to visit the legendary vineyards of Tuscany or indulge in the Amalfi Coast nightlife. A must if visiting the Amalfi Coast is Cantina del Vesuvio, a culinary food and wine experience in a wonderful Italian setting. Italy truly offers something for everyone.” View villas in Italy.
  1. Barbados – “From seaside games of cricket to afternoons at the beach, Barbados has an irresistible island charm that attracts visitors,” Lassman said. “Whether sipping on tropical libations made from the destination’s world-famous rum and taking in the sounds of the local reggae bands or basking in the sun on the legendary pink sand beaches and enjoying the buzzing nightlife, guests will get a feel for the destination’s laidback culture. One of the best ways to experience Barbados’ stunning sunsets is with food and drink aboard the private charter, ‘Seaduced.’” View villas in Barbados.
  1. Turks & Caicos – “Turks & Caicos continues to be one of the most popular destinations because of its world renowned beaches,” stated Lassman. “Guests like the array of activities this destination offers such as snorkeling at the third largest barrier reef, whale-watching and hiking though a limestone cave created more than 600 years ago. There are also some wonderful fine dining options such as Coco Bistro or a customized meal prepared by the villa’s private chef.” View villas in Turks & Caicos.
  1. Jamaica – “People fall in love with Jamaica because of its world-class amenities, stunning locations and unparalleled hospitality,” said Lassman. “Another reason that Jamaica is a popular choice for our guests is because most of our villas here offer a private staff included in the price of the villa stay. This allows guests to truly sit back and relax while the villa staff caters to their needs.” View villas in Jamaica.
  1. Orlando – “Why Orlando? Because no city offers more magic and adventure than Orlando,” Lassman stated. “We offer so many homes with amazing features such as ice skating rinks, bowling alleys, Turkish Spas and themed bedrooms to wow the child in all of us. With all of these amenities, guests never want to leave the villa, however, if they do, our villas are within close proximity to the country’s top theme parks, incredible theater and live performances, top-notch restaurants, nature excursions and more. It’s no wonder Orlando remains on everyone’s bucket list.”  View Villas in Orlando.
