From Tuscany to St. Lucia, seeking out and booking that perfect chateau, villa or sea fortress just got that bit easier with the launch of Oliver’s Travels.

The new brand, amalgamating luxury villa specialists Simply Chateau, Simply Caribe, Simply Italy and Stately Escapes, comprises of over 2,000 properties, all handpicked for their quirky or unique character. Offering an unrivalled choice in this increasingly popular travel market, the brand has thrown open its doors to become the go-to website to easily find the best luxury or quirky properties worldwide for families and groups of friends to share together.

Simply Chateau, set up in 2003 by Ravi Sabharwal and Oliver Bell was the first step in the Oliver’s Travels journey, and after 10 successful years and over 100,000 satisfied customers, the brand now offers chateaux, stately homes, beach huts, converted lighthouses, private islands, former palaces, windmills, clock towers, entire Medieval villages and even a Napoleonic Fortress!

Built on the basis that luxury travel doesn’t need to break the bank, Oliver’s Travels handpicks unique or quirky properties and adds the luxury sparkle using its industry-famous Oliver’s VIP Concierge to arrange extra services such as welcome hampers, a pre-stocked fridge (or wine cellar) or a catered meal for that special occasion.

Far from being the reserve of the rich, Oliver’s Travels offers families and friends the chance to unwind and relax together, all over the world.  Whether it’s a week-long stay in the Windward Islands or a cosy weekend in the Cotswolds, the value for money that Oliver’s Travels affords its customers is second-to-none – especially when you consider that the average price per person, per night in France (our most popular destination) is as low as £39.

Commenting on the launch of the new site, Oliver Bell (who kindly lent his name to the brand after many a persuasive conversation with his co-founder Ravi) said: “Oliver’s Travels offers so much more than those bland, run-of-the-mill holiday rental sites.  Our dedicated team consists of a team of avid travellers who have all helped to handpick each and every property on the site.”

Co-Founder Ravi Sabharwal added: “Far from being just ‘Oliver’s Travels’, the site offers the whole world the opportunity to holiday in luxury at the touch of a button. Our easy to navigate site makes finding that perfect holiday destination quick, simple and, above all, fun so that the stress and strain of planning a holiday gives way to excitement and anticipation in equal measure.”

The new site, www.oliverstravels.com, officially launched at the Condé Nast Luxury Travel Fair in London on 7th November 2013.
