Meet the team

Who we are

We're a team based between Barcelona, Geneva and our destinations. Our background is in hospitality, technology, real-estate and finance.

About half of us have their boots on the ground, while the other half work at the head office managing client and homeowner relationships, and building and operating our technology and distribution infrastructure. We love what we do, and who we do it with.
