Tuesday 13, July 2010
The five-star Villa Condulmer in Treviso has become the latest prestigious European property to select Utell Hotels & Resorts for international sales, marketing and representation. Utell has nearly 200 hotels in the country alone, to which the Villa Condulmer is a desirable new attraction for Utell’s global customer base.
Built in 1743 by the Condulmer family, Villa Condulmer captures the area’s historic art, architecture and textures, while presenting the full services and comforts of a modern hotel. Most notably, the expansive property is sought after for its complete and authentic villa experience, including fine dining with the best of the area’s vintage wines, a picturesque swimming pool, an adjacent 18-hole golf course and a riding school.
“Utell’s Italian and global hotel portfolio keeps getting more extensive as we welcome distinctive properties like the Villa Condulmer,” said Avelina Iglesias, vice president of sales and account management in EMEA for Utell Hotels & Resorts. “The Villa Condulmer has hosted many notable international figures, including Ronald and Nancy Reagan. In offering a complete hotel experience, it is an ideal standalone destination for an Italian getaway, or as a comfortable home base for experiencing the Veneto region.”
As the newest addition to Utell’s international offering of more than 9,000 hotels in nearly 150 countries, the Villa Condulmer will enjoy the benefits of Utell’s extensive and proven business-generating relationships with the majority of the world’s travel agencies, as well as preferred agreements with major TMCs (travel management companies), online distributors, corporations and consortia groups. The Villa Condulmer will also gain access to a complete range of powerful competitive intelligence tools, award-winning Web services, market-leading reservations and booking technology services, all powered by Pegasus Solutions and provided to Utell members.
“Our focus at Villa Condulmer is on the guest, namely providing the five-star service and amenities expected of a luxury resort in one of the most desirable international destinations,” said Rino Tognato, general manager of the Villa Condulmer. “We chose Utell to serve as an extension of our sales and marketing team to focus on the global travel agent, corporate and online booking communities.”
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
