With Unique Retreats you can select a specifically designed unique home that will suit your individual needs and bring that “je ne sais quoi” to your trip.

Not everybody has the same dreams, goals or affections. Some of our guests love drinking chilled cocktails from a villa set right on the beach and swimming across an infinity pool as the sun sets across a silent sea. Others prefer to be set back in the hills overlooking thousand foot vistas and drinking red wine from local vineyards. Let us help you tailor that special experience.


We are grateful to receive the feedback from previous Guests about our service and the properties. It means a lot to us all!
