Our Story

“A few years ago I was asked by a family member to organise a big reunion for us all in the northern region of France. All I needed was to find a suitable property to host this event, as around 30 people would be attending and staying for 1 night. This sounded simple enough as I know that there is an abundance of suitable properties in this region, but when searching google for this luxury vacation rental, I was swamped by a mess of search results containing hundreds of agencies that specialised in different styles, locations and standards of properties. After a long week of trawling the internet, I managed to find a property I thought would do the job, so I called the agency to inquire. I was met by automated booking processes and uninformative staff members, who could not tell me what I needed to know, along with a platform that offered little information regarding the property itself or its destination. I felt disappointed as the asking price for this home was upwards of €10,000,00 per week and I felt that before paying this kind of money I should at least know what I am paying for.

After weeks of struggling with the rental process, I decided that there must be a better way! So we came up with the idea of Private Properties, a web based platform that offers guests a luxurious booking process when renting luxury vacation rentals from around the world. Our idea was simple, to ensure that each client can locate, rent and enjoy the finest real estate on the planet and experience some of the world’s most beautiful destinations from the lap of total luxury. We made this possible by designing a platform that is both easy to use and informative. We pride ourselves on our professional team of sales agents who can cater for any request and provide any additional information that a client requires on their selected rental. Clients can be assured that no automated booking processes or half-hearted agents will interfere with their renting arrangement, because let’s face it, nothing beats the advice of a qualified person when renting a luxury property online. We will stop at nothing to provide the perfect vacation for each client renting through our site as our bespoke platform will aid you through every step in the search for your dream home.”
