Our Story
Have you ever simultaneously felt far away yet right at home?

It’s a kind of perfect travel harmony—something we endeavor to put our clients in every day.

We believe escaping the routine of everyday life and exposing yourself to new people, cultures and tastes is what makes travel so enriching. But we also know that having an oasis of comfort, security and privacy allows you to immerse yourself in adventure effortlessly—and more impactfully. Our curated collection of villas in some of the world’s most exclusive and enticing locations is the solution.

We know the destinations intimately—the restaurants, the beaches, the hidden gems. We know the villas inside and out—the views from the pool, the quality of the pillows, the layout of the kids’ rooms. And, most importantly, we know our clients—their plans, preferences and pet peeves.

We make you feel at home, far from home. That’s how Nocturne Luxury Villas puts you in perfect harmony with your destination in a way no conventional property ever could.
