Seaforde Holidays has been providing villa-based holidays since 2002. Beginning in Cornwall and now expanded to Marbella and Tuscany, we have provided 100s of families with 100s of weeks of holiday relaxation. We make a point of providing a comprehensive guide to our local communities - allowing our guests to be travellers as well as tourists: to spend time in local places and soak in the real life of your destination. Our Mediterranean properties are let and managed, and St Petroc is managed, by our agency company, Seaforde Limited.

William (owner), an Oxford-educated classicist and organ scholar, has enjoyed a diverse career in real estate development, investment & finance, photo-journalism and golf course design. He has developed or restored our villas, whose interior design features his photography. Nic (Lettings Manager) is also a film-maker, whose house tour videos are featured on this website. Pour parler en Français svp appealer Cécile. We work together with Mary, Kenny and Roger, our local property managers, and gardeners Simon, Pepe and Patrick, to deliver a holiday experience that exceeds expectations...

Books We commissioned Arty Brown and Beckenham, our publishing company, to write and produce personalised coffee table books of our villas in Tuscany and Marbella.  These are available on request.
