ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST: Travel Tendencies after Lockdown

ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST: Travel Tendencies after Lockdown

We are excited to have been part of this interesting exchange of opinions about “How the Coronavirus Pandemic Will Change the Way We Travel”, moderated by Laura Itzkowitz and published in Architectural Digest.

Predicting a rise in villa stays, the article mentions: 

“Even with enhanced cleaning practices, people may be wary of interacting with staff as they did before. For this reason, Belles reports that demand for villa rentals is increasing among Virtuoso’s network of travel advisors. “While people are eager to get back to traveling, they also still want to socially distance,” she says. “Villas are the perfect solution, though guests are foregoing things like house cleaning and personal chefs, which are typically part of a villa rental.”

Read our quote in the article: 

“Elena Fotiadi, marketing director for the Greek luxury villa rental company White Key Villas, couldn’t confirm that they’ve had an increase in bookings for this summer, but affirmed that some guests have said the only vacation they want to take this year will be in a secluded villa and not a hotel. “Facts permitting, summer will be on in Greece later this June; our team, as always, will be on-site to control and oversee the work done prior to their arrival and during their stay,” she said. “We strongly believe that these are important actions that need to be highlighted now more than ever, and that once we have returned to our new normality, professionally managed private villas will be among the safest accommodation options globally.”
