Behind every successful rental
There is an impeccably executed concept.Let's get started
“Delight your ideal guest with high quality storytelling. Create the dream in their mind and you’ll achieve the goals you desire.”
I help investors and owners of villas and boutique hotels to strengthen the value of their property and increase revenue within the international luxury rental market.

Whenever I could add some diversity into my life, I did it. An academic background in Economics and Industrial relations in Italy and the United States opened the door for an international career in the high-tech industry as a director of Human Resources.
Working on an international level in the corporate world gave me the mental scope to manage complex projects with ambitious goals. I have a very clear vision of what determines luxury and my focus is always on delivering this for each of my clients, making sure every detail is honed to perfection.
I lived in New York, Paris, San Francisco, Helsinki and London, where I took a sabbatical to study the business of Contemporary Art at Sotheby’s Institute. This was one of the happiest times of my life. With this experience, I was able to approach the luxury industry with a heightened sensitivity for art, design and aesthetics and with a deep understanding of the psychology of the luxury consumer.
Now live in beautiful Barcelona. I became a property owner myself, which is how I got started in the vacation rental industry. I continue to keep a solid foot in Italy where I created The Villa Italy brand for a client. The Villa Italy is a collection of luxury villas in Tuscany, Pantelleria and Ischia. I now manage the brand and enjoy seeing how my ideas have impacted the growth of the business from the start.
This melting pot between study, work and travelling has merged to create my luxury rental consultancy firm.Contact me

It was not a simple project but with vision, professionalism, attention to details and respect for my needs she created The Villa Italy brand for me. Now I am even more proud of my properties. This project has positively impacted the income of each villa. The collaboration with Paola was a choice that I am happy I made. She has delivered the promised results.”
