That’s where we come in. Global Artichoke Private Travel.
Your Travel PA Awaits.
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 don’t sell anything we haven’t seen ourselves. Then we prefer to meet you every now and then – or at least talk at length – to better understand what you’re looking for.
Throughout the year, we will be considering your travel needs and we’ll send you ideas we know you’ll like, to file away for a rainy day; or act upon there and then.
We’ll share with you the benefits of ‘being on the inside’ of the travel industry. You’ll be better informed and have expert advice on hand at all times. Our knowledge of destinations and global network of friends mean we can best arrange any travel plan, anywhere, any time.
With our help, airports become easy and feet don’t touch ground between plane, chauffeur and destination.
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.
The nature of our work finds us often in far-flung corners of the world,
often searching out something for your next trip
so that you can relax,
knowing you’re in safe hands.
We’re thinking about your
even when you’re not.
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
I must tell you that the house in St Briac was absolutely lovely.
We had a splendid time…we never for a moment tired of the view to the bay.
Even my French improved a tad.
This house and this town could really not have been much better and this area one of the better ones for sure.
Thank you Tim for another success!!
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…
