Founded in 2012, we originally specialised in city apartments following a trip to France in which TLTB founder Susie Marquis discovered the joys of a private city apartment in the heart of Paris and never looked back.
Neighbouring an outdoor food market and equally tempting restaurants, the apartment not only offered more space to unwind but also the wonderful feeling of experiencing the city like a local while settling in and discovering the culture of the community.
This passion for picture-perfect city stays has expanded into a one-of-a-kind and carefully selected collection of properties throughout Europe, including our luxury villa programme, specialising in impeccable homes along Italy’s Amalfi Coast and Tuscan countryside as well as the iconic French Riviera and Greek Islands.
As the TLTB community of travellers continues to grow, we are actively expanding to our portfolio with new homes in sought-after destinations and unique local experiences.
Based in London and with over 30 years of experience in the travel industry, The Luxury Travel Book is made possible by a family of avid international travellers, Susie, Jamie and Freddie Marquis, all of whom share an enthusiasm for providing unparalleled service and luxury experiences for our guests hoping to find a home away from home.

Our personal approach begins and ends with our TLTB travellers, from bespoke travel itineraries and the perfect property to unwind, to sharing our travel expertise, personally-tested experiences, and local knowledge.
We only feature destinations we know and love. Our city escape collection features the top European capitals and bustling cultural cities, while our villa portfolio is home to the world’s most desirable beach and countryside destinations across Europe, Asia, Africa, and Oceania.
From popular to off-the-grid, we have an expansive collection of luxury villas throughout Europe, in summer destinations such as Italy, Spain, France, Portugal, Croatia as well as the Greek islands, plus a number of sought-after staycation destinations in the UK.
Our Concierge Services
From first-class butlers and private chefs to luxury massage experiences and personal childcare, we can provide a number of in-home bespoke concierge services.
We are also particularly specialised in securing holiday experiences with private guides as well as transportation, from airport transfers and a personal driver to private jet, helicopter excursions and yacht charters.
From eco-friendly beachfront retreats to countryside escapes for large groups of family and friends to romantic nests for two and private island stays, our properties are hand-picked for their one-of-the-kind architecture and interior design style, prime location, and top-notch amenities
And whether you favour classic or contemporary style, or an eclectic mix of both, our variety of well-appointed spaces cater for every taste and occasion.
Alongside the core TLTB team, guest services are supported by our trusted local experts, property owners and travel agents, lifestyle concierge teams, private drivers and tour guides, as well as restaurant owners and wineries to wedding planners, all of whom work together to make our TLTB member stays special.
