Villada Travel Group

Who we are

Villada is a premium villa rental service, offering a hand-picked selection of villas and tailored service. Our experienced villa specialists combine high class demands with insights into all hidden gems at location. That’s why our guests get a luxurious stay with their loved ones. Locally flavoured and with all the comfort and privacy they expect.

In 2014, the idea of Villada service started out with few observations: instead of traditional travel packages and hotel travelling, different, unique options for both family holidays and business trips are sought after. There are a lot of online sites on the web that offers endless options for renting houses and apartments. However, they do not always bring the feeling of safety and trustworthiness for making the booking. In reality, does the accommodation actually correspond to what is promised and promoted? That is quite often a large concern of travellers.

We wanted to create a service which standardizes the whole villa holiday experience from the first contact point, through the booking process, and all the way to the stay at the villa. Throughout the entire process, the guest should rest assured their holiday experience will be nothing but perfect.

Today, you can easily search and compare options from nearly 1000 hand-selected villas on the Villada site. The Villada Guest Service Team is available in English and Finnish. We are always happy to chat, whether it’s about finding a suitable villa or sharing local insights. With a Nordic mindset we understand the needs and expectations of our clients and we strive to make booking process easy and stress-free.
