In Display of 99 Villas in Trio of Luxe Destinations

NEWPORT, RI, January 2004 – Fancy lavender and foie gras? Then Wimco’s new Vendôme Guide to the South of France is a must-have for showcasing where to indulge in both while wrapped in the privacy of your own villa.

Destination specialist Wimco, the Newport, RI, and London-based luxury vacation villa and hotel reservations company, has been collecting villas in a trio of luxe French destinations for over 20 years.

“Vendome Guide to the South of France is designed to stimulate villa vacationing by showcasing the villas as well as highly detailed and descriptive Wimco-garnered and filtered destination information that our clients depend on,” says Janis Gordon, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Before Wimco selects a villa for our collection, our staff visit each villa and explore surrounding regions for those choice dining and cultural attractions that guests will enjoy.
