Wimco International, Experts in Private Villa Holidays, Launches London

LONDON, May 2003: The best views in Provence, total privacy on Capri, the biggest swimming pool in Barbados, the most modern architecture on St Barth.

Dream destinations? No, Wimco International, a luxury villa and hotel reservations company with 20 years experience, is opening a London office this June, providing access to some of the world's most beautiful and exceptional villas in the South of France, Italy, and the Caribbean.

The team of travel counselors are expert in what they do and will provide first hand knowledge of Wimco's 1,200 properties 16 hours a day - the reservations line will be open from 9am to Midnight. These experienced travel counselors, who have inspected all the villas, are supported by an award-winning web site, www.wimco.co.uk, which presents all the properties along with up-to-date availability, full detailed descriptions, calculated pricing, and a portfolio of photos.

As well as providing accommodation and valued destination information, Wimco can tailor make the holidays to suit each client's needs, whether it be private chefs, yoga instructors, yacht charters or simply a restaurant reservation. Service is top-notch for each client, whether the client seeks a value-oriented holiday within a budget or over-the-top extravagance. The inspection process of visiting and evaluating each villa guarantees that a quality match is made for each client's expectation of value. Wimco International's standard is that the holiday traveler can rent a quality villa with confidence and ease; "renting a villa is easy" has been Wimco's motto for twenty years.

Wimco, established in 1983 as a specialist Caribbean private villa rental company, started on the island of St Barth as the exclusive representative of some of the island's most exceptional private villas through the Sibarth Real Estate Company, a Sotheby's International affiliate. Twenty years later, Wimco specializes in quality villas in the South of France (Côte d'Azur, Provence and St. Tropez), Italy (Capri, Tuscany, Umbria) as well as throughout the Caribbean.

The range of villas is comprehensive, from beach bungalow (romantic Pink Cottage in Barbados ), to private château (Castello in Tuscany), for the cost conscious (Villa SOL in St. Barth) to blow-the-budget (Treilles de la Moutte in St. Tropez).
