Get ahead of the curve and cast your eyes over this holiday rental company's gorgeous portfolio of properties.

We all have our heart set on a bit of sunshine and respite this summer and very much have our fingers and toes firmly crossed that it may be possible. If you are interested in getting ahead of the curve, or at least dipping your toes in, then cast your eyes over The Luxury Travel Book’s gorgeous portfolio of properties.

The Luxury Travel Book was founded in 2012 by the Marquis family and originally specialised in city apartments. With their shared enthusiasm and passion for travel, they have now expanded their portfolio to include a carefully curated collection of properties throughout Europe.

You are in safe hands with The Luxury Travel Book and their personal approach begins and ends with you, from bespoke travel itineraries to sharing their travel expertise and local knowledge.

The Luxury Travel Book only features destinations they know and love, from their city escape collection to their beautiful villa portfolio and extensive range of luxury villas. Here are six of our favourite villas that make us ache for blue skies and turquoise waters.

For any budding archaeologists, the area is home to one of the most important sites, with findings from The Mycenaean to the Hellenistic times. The property itself comprises three buildings, so families and guests have their own space. With access to a hammam, gym, private sea water pool, tennis courts and a children’s playground and sea sports, we cannot think of a lovelier place to be right now!
