    Private Houses

    Staying in a private house in Latin America, Africa or Asia is a great way of experiencing an exotic destination, but with the comfort, privacy and ease of a European holiday. You have all the luxury and mod-cons of the classic villa or private yacht, but in somewhere altogether more wild and wonderful.

    We don’t work with many owners and those owners tend not to work with anyone other than cazenove+loyd. From beach houses in Brazil, Mexico, South Africa and Indonesia to wilderness retreats in India, across sub-Saharan Africa and throughout Latin America we can offer true exclusivity in some of the most dramatic and luxurious destinations in the world.

    The stunning private houses we select for our clients have all the trimmings you would find in their best European counterparts, but with that added magic of experiencing a completely different way of life. There are also myriad benefits of taking your children further afield at an early age as it exposes them to new and exciting cultures and people and makes their worlds much larger.

    Below we have highlighted just five villas that we love in Latin America. This is by no means a prescriptive list, but rather it shows what we look for in villas for our clients and the inspiring ways we can create a family holiday of a lifetime for every member of the family.
