We at Waterstone are honored – and delighted – to be chosen as Paul Klein Travel’s Partner of the Month for August, having worked closely with our colleagues at the agency for many of the 20 years we have been in business. Waterstone’s carefully curated member portfolio comprises vetted luxury hotels, private residences, and exciting destination services, with each member organized to deliver a unique and authentic expression of hospitality in Europe, the Caribbean, South America, India & South Asia.
Although our portfolio is an extensive one, given the increasing popularity of private villas and residences for today’s travelers, we thought we would take this opportunity to highlight just a few of our most exclusive offerings – in Tuscany, Greece, Turks and Caicos, and France.
VILLA LA FONTE (Near Volterra, Italy) – Villa La Fonte is located on the grounds of Borgo Pignano, a 750-acre country estate near the small medieval hill town of Volterra. When you dream of staying in the perfect villa in Tuscany, this is it! Surrounded by aromatic gardens, orchards, and fields, the villa sits beside a small lake and is home to 5 luxury bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a large, covered porch, a fully equipped kitchen, a spacious living room, a private heated pool, and a relaxing sun deck. Even better, guests of La Fonte enjoy all the privileges of being a guest at Borgo Pignano. This 5-star resort property offers a variety of both formal and relaxed dining opportunities, cooking lessons, wine tastings, an intimate spa, and miles of hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails.
PORTO ZANTE VILLAS AND SPA (Zakynthos, Greece) – You may not have heard of Zakynthos as yet, but (with the help of this picture), we hope to pique your interest! And in the midst of this gorgeous Greek island sits Porto Zante, a resort comprised of 9 world-class villas between 1 and 4 bedrooms, offering guests an exceptional level of personal service. This top luxury resort in the Mediterranean offers absolute privacy, majestic scenery, exquisite dining, authentic Greek hospitality, and an award-winning Waterfront Spa for guests to enjoy. EXCLUSIVE TO CLIENTS OF PAUL KLEIN: When staying a minimum of 5 nights, receive a complimentary 3-hour evening cruise to the world-famous Shipwreck Beach or Turtle Island.
THE CONDOR (Loire Valley, France) – Stay in your very own Chateau in France! The Condor is an 18th-century French manor house set on 200 acres of beautiful countryside in the Loire Valley. The estate is offered as a private villa and features 9 sumptuous suites, gorgeous gardens, and grounds, plus a private 18-hole golf course, just for you. An extensive staff is on hand to completely tailor your experience to your tastes, and the nightly rate is fully inclusive of all meals, beverages, unlimited use of the golf course, and much more. The estate is easily accessible from Paris (90 minutes away) or from a nearby private airfield (20 minutes away). EXCLUSIVE TO CLIENTS OF PAUL KLEIN: Complimentary onsite wine tasting with a local sommelier who will guide you through the tastes of the Loire.
THE SHORE CLUB VILLAS (Long Bay Beach, Providenciales) – Looking for a private getaway in the Caribbean? Look no further than Turks & Caicos and the exclusive villas of The Shore Club, one of the islands’ premier resorts. With up to 6 bedrooms, The Shore Club Villas offer a completely private oceanfront setting framed by the secluded, white sand of sought-after Long Bay Beach. Guests are seemingly in a world of their own but are only steps from all of the exceptional amenities The Shore Club has to offer. Each villa boasts its own heated pool, private courtyard, expansive terraces, spacious guest rooms with large baths, and a master suite with the most enchanting ocean views imaginable. And our partners on the ground, Luxury Experiences Turks and Caicos, will ensure you are well looked after from the moment you arrive until you (most reluctantly) depart.
