Passepartout Homes gets featured by Startups.
Tell us what your business does:
Passepartout Homes is a boutique property and concierge club where membership is strictly by invitation only.
Passepartout Homes caters to the high-end holiday rental market, matching private home owners to like-minded guests.
Our approach is unique and personal. Catering to the most discerning travellers, our portfolio features some beautiful private homes, many of which have never before been made available for rental.
Passepartout Homes also provides a bespoke holiday service, to find clients the perfect property outside of our own portfolio if necessary.
Where did the idea for your business come from?
The idea came on a flight back to London from our holiday home in Apulia, Italy.
Although it’s a much-loved destination for our family and friends, it remains empty for long stretches of the year. We approached a few holiday rental agencies but we didn’t feel at ease having a constant flow of strangers in our home.
Talking to other friends in a similar position, we decided the only viable option would be to create a network of trusted individuals to whom we would feel comfortable opening the doors of our private home, while covering some of the running costs of the property.
