Italy is a dream destination for food lovers. The country is known for its culinary heritage, and its regional cuisine is famous around the world. Villas in Italy are often situated on olive groves and vineyards, allowing guests to enjoy the olive oil or wine made on those exact estates where they stay. For many villas, we can also add a professional chef to create Italian delicacies with ingredients picked fresh from the villa’s garden. Whether your clients choose to cook in their villa's full kitchen, enjoy a chef-prepared meal, or indulge in a private in-villa cooking class, they'll have the opportunity to savor the flavors of Italy and appreciate the country's culinary traditions.
France is another destination that's renowned for its cuisine. From the buttery croissants and flaky baguettes to the exquisite cheeses and wines, French food is all about indulgence. Villas in France offer easy access to some of the country's most iconic ingredients, such as truffles, foie gras, and Champagne. Guests can explore the local markets and bring back fresh ingredients to prepare their own meals, or they can indulge in a private chef experience and savor the culinary delights of France without lifting a finger.
Jamaica is a destination that's bursting with flavor - known for its spice and heat. Many villas in Jamaica feature professionally-trained chefs who can create delicious Jamaican cuisine for your clients – and chicken tenders for picky eaters. From jerk chicken and ackee and saltfish to curry goat and plantains, Jamaican food is a feast for the senses. Your clients can immerse themselves in the local culture and cuisine by visiting the local markets, farm-to-table restaurants, and meeting local producers.
Mexico is another destination that's perfect for food lovers. Mexican cuisine is known for its vibrant and bold flavors, featuring fresh ingredients such as cilantro, lime, and avocado. Our villas in Riviera Maya also feature professionally trained chefs who can create authentic Mexican cuisine for your clients. Whether they want to try traditional dishes like tacos, tamales, and ceviche, or experiment with their own creations, your clients can enjoy the flavors of Mexico in the comfort of their villa.
