Paolo Macchiaroli, CEO and founder of My Private Villas
My Private Villas proudly showcases a unique collection of luxury homes, villas, chalets and apartments located from stunning beach locations, to quiet countryside and Alps retreats.
RG: Do you consider interior design able to change an “anonymous” villa into a strong and profitable asset?
PM: Absolutely. A luxury property is not just a series of rooms but it is also a collection of details that enhance the guest’ experience. Light, distribution of space, furniture and art all make a difference – as well as the high quality of materials. Everything that can increase guest comfort is a valid asset.

RG: Do you feel that your clients value and appreciate the interior design of the villas?
PM: The style and design of a villa are often the deciding factors. Every design choice makes a difference – and it’s incredible how clients pick up even small details from the photographs on our website. We choose the villas in our portfolio based on the attention to details that the owners put in creating and decorating the properties.

RG: What is considered luxury today?
PM: Luxury is defined by the quality of time spent. The place you spend it in. The people you spend it with.
My Private Villas’ philosophy is to share its passion for quality and enriching experiences with its guests.
Our meticulous selection of villas, our trusted relationships with the owners and our ambition to always exceed expectations, will guarantee our guests the highest standards of luxury.
Luxury can easily be described as the fulfilment of a dream – which is different for everyone. While guests may have precise tastes and desires, for us true luxury is also respecting the territory – a luxurious property must be well set in its location and must highlight the characteristics of the area.
We pride ourselves in having a large portfolio in many different locations that can satisfy the most demanding clients offering them the holiday of a lifetime.

RG: What is considered innovation today?
PM: Technology is progressing so fast that it’s hard to keep up! I think innovation is to be found first in energy-saving strategies, the use of local materials, solar panels etc, but also in the integration of the most up to date systems for lights sound etc – not only in contemporary properties but also in historical ones.
For example, a TV is a TV – but there is a massive difference if it is an HD flatscreen hidden discreetly in a wall panel and one looming large in the middle of the room. They serve the same purpose but the presentation makes a big difference.
