Want the place all to yourself? Well the Chic Retreats collection of chic houses and luxury villas, small boutique hotels and apartments for exclusive rental makes it easy for you to do just that. Stay with friends, bring your family or book all for yourself. Whoever you go with you can enjoy stylish chic houses, boutique hotels and luxury villas without interruption.

Check into Burggraaf, a modern barn conversion in Dorset where you and 11 friends can enjoy the use of a Roman bath, hot tub, swimming pool and sauna. Or in London, stay at the Europa House Apartments in Little Venice: each of the 14 apartments is fully serviced with 1 to 4 bedrooms and a 3 acre communal garden. They are ideal for families with children visiting the capital and wanting to discover the London Zoo and Regent’s Park, both of which are on the doorstep.

Marrakech has plenty of riads that can be taken over exclusively, from Riad Shambala, which has a small pool and views over the city from the rooftop, to the beautifully designed, 4 room Dar Seven. Whichever you choose, haggle for bargains in the souks, visit the city’s palaces and spend an afternoon at the relaxing Majorelle Gardens. In southern Sri Lanka, you can take over the whole of the 4-room Kadju House just outside the village of Tangalle. Set in a cashew grove overlooking a gorgeous sandy beach, it has a spa, an infinity swimming pool and staff who will happily take guests to the market and show them how to cook traditional Sri Lankan dishes.

Ibiza in Spain is another island where it can often make sense to have exclusive use of a villa and Can Bikini, which sleeps 10 people, is one of the most beautiful on the island. Rooms are spread across the main house and 2 guest houses, which come with everything you could possibly want including a yoga deck, a tepee in the forest and a cinema projector. It’s also ideally situated for Ibiza Town just 25 minutes away and Cala Salada, the nearest beach.

Further afield, our collection of chic houses and luxury villas that can be rented exclusively includes destinations such as Australia, Bahamas and Indonesia. In Thailand, stay at The Vana Villa in Chang Mai, which sleeps up to 10 people across 2 houses or at Samujana, on the beach in Fisherman’s Village on Koh Samui. In South Africa’s Cape Town, you can take over the Hout Bay Hideaway, which is 20 minutes drive from downtown and overlooks a pretty fishing harbour. It has 3 suites and 1 apartment that can be rented exclusively. Take a trip out to Seal Island, horse ride along the sand at Kommetjie or chill out at Camps Bay.

Whichever destination you’ve chosen for your holiday, the Chic Houses and Luxury Villas for exclusive rental are the best choice for privacy, luxury and style, all just for you.
