Provacances is the largest supplier on the Scandinavian market of pool villas in France. Apart from being able to offer a large selection of desirable villas, we can also offer private apartments, houses in the country and serviced apartments. In addition, we can similarly offer a large number of holiday homes in Italy’s two classic regions of Tuscany and Umbria as well as in Liguria.
Our Aim is to offer exclusive vacation rentals in France and Italy,
Our aim is to be able to offer a varied choise in quality accommodations of a high caliber in as many areas of France and Italy as possible. We also continue to work on new destinations and types of holidays in order to be able to give our clients the broadest and best possible choise.
We know all our holiday accommodations
We know all our accomodations, which is not necessarily the case with other agents. We go to France and Italy several times during the year looking out for new accommodations and getting to know their owners with whom we then cultivate good relations in order for us to ensure that we at all times can offer the highest possible standard.
Provacances as collaborator
Since Provacances in 1997 started with a small number of properties in Provence, our company - with a large profile of working partners and a substantial client-portfolio - has now achieved an excellent profile.
The development of the company
At the beginning we mainly let to Danish clients but since then - and with the constantly extending possibilities mainly due to the Internet - substantial changes have taken place. Although most of our clients are from Scandinavia, an ever growing number are from Europe and other parts of the world. This has meant that we have developed from being a somewhat local agent to an international one.
Every year we do our best to increase the quality of our property portfolio in an attemps to ensure that we can continue to offer the very best on the market.
From being a one-man-business during the first few years, we now have 7 employees in Denmark. In addition we have a close working relationship with local representatives in France and Italy in order to be able to ensure the very best service for our clients. We have local representatives at all our destinations - whether owners or caretakers - who are there to assist if a problem should occur in relation to the accomodation.
