Slow Travel Villas, etc.*!!

In our continued effort to monopolize the world of vacation rentals and just do things our (read: The Right) way, Slow Travel proudly announces our latest initiative: Slow Travel Villas, Mansions, Chateaux, Manors, Castles, Cottages, Apartments.

We are now able to provide you, SlowTrav members, with easy one-stop rental of luxury villas, mansions and castles in, or quite close to, all of the most requested vacation spots in the world. Many of these villas, castles and mansions are owned by the SlowTrav moderators, or a close friend/relative, or a holding association/tax friendly off-shore conglomerate composed of moderators and their relations. This insures the consistently high quality that you, the SlowTrav member, has come to associate with the vacation rental guidance and expert advice typically freely dispensed by SlowTrav mods.

We will be able to pass on more than our expert opinions - now we can steer you to the perfect villa, mansion, chateau, manor house and/or castle at a savings, because we own it!

Villa American Style™ or Country Style

Several of the Slow Travel Villas, etc.* have been, or are in the process of being, totally renovated to be absolutely American - Villa American Style™. No more endless attempts at figuring out how the showers work, or waiting for a washing machine to complete a six hour cycle! It is truly the best of all worlds: a quaint neighborhood location and a 2 car garage! A local bistro and central air conditioning! Charming fruit and vegetable vendors and a monster gas grill! Window screens! Clothes dryers! Measuring utensils in cups and spoons, not kilos and liters! These will surely appeal to the more sophisticated Slow Traveler.

Other Slow Travel Villas, etc.* have been left in a more natural, rustic, "native" state, perfect for the discriminating Slow Traveler who dreams of telling the less adventurous back home that they have truly experienced life as a local.
