Red Savannah, the award-winning travel company offering luxury private villa experiences and custom-designed journeys around the world, has acquired Homebase Abroad, a U.S.-based company specializing in vacation rentals exclusively in the Italian villa market. The deal effectively expands Red Savannah’s U.S. clientele network and enhances its portfolio of luxury villa properties. Homebase Abroad is Red Savannah’s first acquisition.
The experienced team at Homebase Abroad, headquartered in Marblehead, MA, and founded in 1995, will continue to oversee all villa vacations booked for 2021. On January 1, 2022, all Homebase Abroad bookings will transition to Red Savannah with Homebase’s Founder and Director, Mara Solomon, remaining closely involved as a Red Savannah Ambassador.
The U.S. is currently Red Savannah’s second-largest market, representing 45% of its business, and much of the growth in recent years has been in Europe and especially the luxury villa sector. For those ready to explore the world, Red Savannah has a vast array of new offerings including luxury villas in key areas throughout Europe such as the exceptional 18-bedroom Chateau Margui in the South of France, part of the personal property portfolio of film producer George Lucas, as well as contemporary Villa Malvan in the pretty Cote d’Azur town of Vence where guests will be walking distance from Matisse’s celebrated chapel, the Chapelle du Rosaire, and Villa del Monte, a smart country house amidst the rolling hills of Chianti, Tuscany, that is surrounded by a vineyard.
Red Savannah also has new experiences in the Mediterranean in popular island destinations such as Ibiza, where a trio of super-chic villas, Villa Josep, Can Bonita and Villa Xi can be rented individually, or together to accommodate up to 44 guests enjoying a much-anticipated reunion or celebratory occasion. The collection has also expanded in the sought-after northeast corner of Corfu, Greece, where the Durrell family famously made their home. Villa Kerasia in Corfu sits close to one of the loveliest beaches on the island with waterfront tavernas looking out over the Ionian Sea. In addition, Red Savannah also increased their collection of luxury gulets and yachts in the Mediterranean, with summer 2021 additions in Croatia and Montenegro where vacation goers can spend time kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkelling, relaxing and exploring various destinations.
