Art de Vivre is a unique British brand for exceptional villa and chalet rentals worldwide, established in 2013 by founder & director Julie Gauthier. Her vision was to create a brand that showcased all that is exceptional and desirable in prestigious luxury villa and chalet rentals and to celebrate the world's best in art and design. The company is now synonymous with designer villa & property rentals in elite locations worldwide.

The company has redefined how discerning clients book high end rentals through a series of bespoke and personal consultations. Art de Vivre works with clients and owners around the world, often meeting in person in London, Paris and Geneva to discuss their villa holidays in person.

Its success is born of an indisputable passion and eye for stunning properties and an experienced dynamic team that work closely with their clients and owners from request to the end of stay, delivering an exemplary service. The business is built on trust and repeat clients, not to mention Julie’s own network of contacts and reputation which enables her to introduce her clients to owner’s properties and experiences around the world they would otherwise miss. 


For many owners these properties are not just a sound investment but years of searching for the ideal plot, engaging a top architect and crafting a wonderful designer home as a heritage for many generations to come.

This commitment to the highest level of property rental is combined with bespoke service, to produce an exceptional experience that defines luxury villa and chalet rentals for the 21st century. Many are off-market increasing their rarity, desirability and value.
