Le Collectionist is a luxury travel brand offering the discerning traveler a selection of exquisite holiday rentals around the world with hotel-like services. The company was founded in 2013 by Eliott Cohen-Skalli, Max Aniort and Olivier Cahane, and began through a desire to offer travelers a guaranteed luxury holiday that was as easy and as secure as booking a hotel room.
The guarantee that Le Collectionist can offer you stems from the fact that each house that they rent has been checked by a member of their team, and each rental is said to have that love-at-first-sight feel.
Unlike competitors such as Airbnb, Le Collectionist offers a completely personalized service, in which a member of the team will arrange to have a brief phone call with the client, which they will use to discover the exact needs of the client, and thus can advice on properties in the best way possible. As well as advising you on the property to which you would be most suited, the company also customizes the client's holiday with a myriad of services. From organizing a transfer to the airport to cocktail training classes, Le Collectionist ensures that your dream holiday is no longer just a dream. In fact, one look at their website will open your eyes to the massive variety of things they can achieve in a property:
'We have recreated a New York bar in a kitchen, manufactured an ephemeral spa, put up a famous DJ in a garden, installed a photo booth in a living room and organized a masked ball in a Renaissance chateau.Holidays are the perfect opportunity to live the experiences you have always dreamed of. Tell us about your passions and desires: we will use them to create made-to-measure experiences that are customized right down to the smallest detail: from the simplest to the most extraordinary.'
