Our current owner and director, Per Skjøth, started Provacances in 1997 from his then residence in Lubéron in the south of France. Initially, the focus was on renting holiday homes in the scenic Lubéron area, but when the one-man company in the winter of 1997/98 moved to Denmark, it quickly accelerated, and the product palette was expanded to include the entire Provence-Côte d'Azur area.
Over the years, the company has evolved from being a small one-man company with a smaller handful of rental properties in Lubéron to today being one of Europe's largest providers of privately owned villas with pool in the Provence-Côte d'Azur area. PROVACANCES currently counts 8 employees in Denmark and a larger number of local caretakers who all contribute to ensuring the best service to our customers.
At Provacances customers get a personalized guidance from our skilled and committed travel consultants with a great insight into French culture, tourist attractions, sights, and activities. We aim to provide the best service and guidance to our customers. That's why we continuously inspect our holiday homes, so we can always be sure that they live up to our standard.
Our goal is to offer as wide a range of quality homes as possible. Every year we try to increase the quality of our range so that we can always be sure that we can offer the best housing on the market.
Our great love for the neighboring Italy led in 2006 to the start of our Italian department with a larger range of holiday homes in Italy's two classic regions of Tuscany and Umbria, as well as in Liguria.
