About Sarah

Sarah has been involved in the villa rental business for the last 30 years and few, if any, have more experience in this area.

Educated in the UK and Switzerland, Sarah is a fluent French speaker. She learnt the business inside out having started work at Montpelier International Properties (part of the exclusive travel agency, Montpelier Travel, based in Knightsbridge, London). This led her to set up Sarah Hutchins Associates in 1994 in order to offer a villa rental service to the many owners who had bought properties through her, predominantly in the South of France.

In 2007 she formed a new company to cover villa rentals worldwide. In 2016 she was bought out by her partner and has now decided to return to what she knows and loves best, the French property rental market.

Sarah is widely travelled and has a huge list of contacts throughout the villa rental market globally. However, France remains her firm favourite. She and her husband, Robin, own a home in the lovely seaside village of Beaulieu-sur-Mer on the Cote d’Azur and spend as much time as they can there.

Her knowledge of France is second to none and she has a unique understanding of what makes the perfect holiday home. With her experience, eye for detail, connections and high professional standards, clients return to Sarah year after year to plan their holidays.

She inspects all the villas on her website personally and regularly to ensure they meet the high standards her clients have come to expect.

As Sarah says ”I never forget that for most people when planning their holiday there is a bewildering amount of choice available at the press of a button. This can consume a huge amount of time which is a rare commodity. I am committed to ensuring my clients have the best selection to choose from in order to fit their particular needs. Everyone should have a fabulous holiday whatever their budget. This can be achieved through my years of experience in the villa world and understanding of service”.

“Sarah was a delight to deal with, nothing was too much trouble.
We loved this place and would have no hesitation in recommending.
We hope to return in the near future.
Thanks Sarah.”
