NEWPORT, R.I., June 2003 - The family vacation can cost less and be more fun if everyone spreads out this summer in a beachfront villa in the Caribbean or surrounded by the sensuous landscape of Italy's Tuscany or Umbria region.
That's Wimco's thinking about the upcoming summer, especially with air tickets to some locales at attractive prices and villas rates reduced up to 30 percent for a limited time for prime Caribbean and Italian villas.
For example, for $5,000 a week (reduced from $7,500), a full staff comes with the 4-bedroom villa 'Emerald Hill' on the Caribbean island of Mustique.
In Italy's Umbria between June 14 and 28, there is a 30 percent savings on a 5-bedroom villa near Orvieto, priced at $4,600 per week. A second 5-bedroom villa in the same area is reduced 20 percent at just $5,400 a week, a rate available from now through October 2003.
"There's a pent-up demand to go somewhere, anywhere, and it's a great opportunity to combine lowered airfares with these choice villas," says Janis Gordon, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for destination specialist Wimco, the luxury vacation villa and hotel reservations company.
Wimco's Caribbean villa selection includes 680 villas on 12 islands including St. Barts, St. Martin, Mustique, Nevis, Anguilla, Barbados and others. Information about Caribbean destinations is available on Wimco's award-winning website, www.wimco.com.
The "Villa Specials Page" offers information on attractive prices.
Wimco offers over 1,000 luxury villas and distinctive hotels and resorts internationally in such select areas as Italy's Umbria region, France's Provence and St. Tropez.
