A collection of experts from around the world. The Global Artichoke Private Travel team is now at your disposal
Just how important is your holiday?
Quite? Very? Something you can just book up quickly on the internet between jobs?
Or would you feel happier if a mature intelligent professional handled your account – like in proper business?
That’s where we come in.
Give us a try the next time you’re thinking of going away.
We want to be your Travel PA.
Global Artichoke Private Travel is the culmination of twenty years travelling experience and enlightened conversations with doormen, hoteliers, villa owners and barmen on six continents.
In order to find the best solution on every occasion – the perfect hotel, villa or tailor-made itinerary – we do not sell anything we have not seen ourselves and then we prefer to meet you, every now and then, to explain our suggestions and hear your thoughts.
Throughout the year, we will be considering your travel needs and will send you ideas based on your likes and dislikes, to file away for a rainy day; or act upon there and then.
We will share with you the benefits of ‘being on the inside’ of the travel industry. You will be better informed and have expert advice on hand at all times. Our knowledge of destinations and global network of friends and contacts mean we can best advise and arrange any travel plan, anywhere.
With our help, airports become easy and feet don’t touch ground between plane, chauffeur and destination. Unless you want them to.
Not only can we tell you how to get there and what is new but also when to go, what to do, where to be seen and what to avoid.
We are constantly travelling and researching; staying in hotels and visiting houses and villas, climbing into tree houses, swimming along beaches, skiing between lodges and going on safari. We try the restaurants, look in at the bars, visit the sights and (occasionally!) dance in the clubs, so that we truly can tell you all about it.
Thanks to advances in communications technology you can reach Tim and his team wherever they are in the world and tap directly into their extensive knowledge and resource.
We’re thinking about you even if we cant’t get to the phone / in the water / bush reception / jungle WiFi so just leave a message / drop us an Email and we’ll be back to you within 24hrs. You matter to us.
As I told you on the telephone, the villa was quite excellent. It was very comfortable, with wonderful views and excellent facilities. The tennis court was a scene of very competitive family matches, the boule pitch was very popular and, of course, the swimming pool was a lovely temperature. The kayaks were excellent for the young. All in all excellent.
This was truly a magnificent villa. Thank you and the help was fantastic.
It was a delightful three weeks and could have stayed twice that
though Mykonos did get a little small by the end.
Michael called to say that the villa was absolutely excellent. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and he will write further on his return.
Thank you so much for the wonderful bunch of flowers that you sent on our return from holiday.
Generally we had a wonderful time and it was a most unusual holiday.
Once again, enormous thanks!
I look forward to hearing in due course about whether you think the
Burma from Darjeeling
idea might be a runner.
All good wishes
RH & FH
We are in Munich returning tomorrow. Needed some wurst before reentry.
All in all it was a lovely villa. It turned out to be a great place for us and the cat. Everyone was happy including myself. The driveway was, however, one the most challenging ever anywhere.
Where next? Puglia again?
Thank you for your email. We just saw Steve and Jo this weekend
and they are so excited for their upcoming honeymoon.
We loved Namibia!!
What an experience.
Quick question, we have been reading a lot about how good the northern lights will be…
