GIC The Villa Collection has launched its 2013 brochure which features two new  destinations and a selection of new properties. It also includes the option to travel to Greece by Venice Simplon-Orient Express, journeying through the Swiss Alps.

Prices lead in at £1,650 per person based on two sharing including one-way train travel, an overnight stay in Venice and seven nights at Villa Ioanna in Corfu including car hire and flights. Prices for Orient Express prices start from £3,200 per person.

The operator's managing director Chris Wright said: “Many of our repeat clientele adore the total seclusion and privacy offered by a good number of our villas, but we’re finding that new clients often seek both privacy and private pool plus the convenience of being within walking distance of tavernas so that they need not drink and drive.
"Our team can advise which properties suit individual requirements, and we also provide local taxi service details so that, for a modest €10 taxi fare, clients can enjoy the best of both worlds – privacy and people-watching.”

Meanwhile, new villa highlights for this year include Villa Halikounas in Corfu, which costs £577 per person, based on six sharing; Villa Islands View in Kefalonia, which leads in at £623 per person based on six sharing; and Athermigo in Crete which sleeps ten and leads in at £819 per person.
