Villa Specialist

Gabriella Ibba

I joined CV Villas in 2012, after a long career working in the travel industry both in Italy and the UK. I have been always very curious, and working in the travel industry has enabled me to satisfy my curiosity of the world. Working at CV Villas has given me the chance to appreciate the beauty of having your own house abroad - there's so much more privacy and flexibility than you get to experience in a hotel, and there's also the chance to enjoy homemade food cooked by local people.

What is your favourite destination?

My favourite destination is Morocco. There is so much to do and visit for active types, but equally has the most amazing villas for people looking to relax by the swimming pool and enjoy the wonderful views of the Atlas Mountains.

Which destination is top of your bucket list and why?

Greece is top of my bucket list – especially Santorini for the Akrotiri archaeological site. It would be amazing to see the ruins of a prehistoric Greek village.

How do you spend your time whilst on holiday?

A holiday is an opportunity to meet new people and discover new cultures. I am always attracted by, and interested in, local cultures, traditions and knowledge. That's why I define myself more as a traveller than a tourist. But let's be honest... I do enjoy a day by the pool reading a nice book.

What's your top travel tip?

I truly believe that a villa is like a dress; it could be perfect for someone but might not suit another person. The villa must fit the personal taste and requirements so that it can become your home for the length of your holiday.
