Why do ordinary?

Your time off is precious. So when you go away, why not make an occasion of it and book somewhere a bit… different?

At Oliver’s Travels we don’t do ordinary. But if you’re looking to rent somewhere quirky, unique and bursting with more character than a bottle of ’59 Lafite Rothschild, we’ve got some stunning luxury villas for you to choose from. 

Fancy a romantic weekend for two in a lighthouse, a week away in a converted windmill, or a fortnight relaxing with friends in the grounds of a French chateau?

We’ve got them all here at Oliver’s Travels, each one handpicked by our team to guarantee you a truly memorable holiday. At around £40 per person per night, you can experience luxury without burning a hole in your pocket.

Who are we? We’re a small team of dedicated travellers who are more than a little bit obsessive about where we choose to stay. Read more.
