Summer With Villazzo
Summer has arrived and Villazzo has a choice of more
than 25 VillaHotels in Europe and the US. With some already fully booked for the entire summer, now is the time to make a reservation for the VillaHotel of your choice.
These are private hotels where you are the only guest and they provide one of life’s greatest
luxuries – space. While some hotels boast of suites with 1,000 square feet, the smallest Villazzo
VillaHotel has more than 5,000 square feet excluding the extensive garden and swimming pool.
Your personal hotel manager looks forward to creating the perfect holiday before you even arrive. From the choice of films, flowers and wines, to the most suitable people to look after you throughout your stay. Villazzo is luxury unlimited.
