Snug Ireland – The Italian Connection

Would you like more guests to stay at your holiday home?

Bantry based Giovanni Vallone and Silvana Recupero are launching a new website for Ireland’s holiday homes. The husband and wife team, with over 20 years’ experience in the holiday sector, are excited about launching ‘Snug Ireland’. They have enjoyed great success with their ‘Mamma Sicily’ business, which connects people from all over the world with exclusive holiday properties and experiences in Sicily and also have a customer base in Stockholm, Sweden. Now, they are expanding to bring guests to their newfound and much-loved home in Ireland.

“We are now based in Bantry,” Giovanni says. “With all our contacts and experience in Italy and Sweden, it makes great sense for us to now start marketing Irish holiday homes. If you look at our website, you will see the quality and experience that we bring to this business.”

“We are meeting with holiday home-owners, to ensure they maximise this excellent opportunity and that we make our holiday rentals the best on the market.” Giovanni says. “If you are serious about booking consistently good clients for your holiday accommodation, then book an appointment with us.”

Their business model for owners is simple and direct. When bookings are confirmed, the owners get a 20 per cent payment followed by another 30 per cent payment two months in advance of the guests arriving. The final payment of 50 per cent is paid three days after the guests arrive. ‘Snug Ireland’ charges 10 per cent commission and will use their experience and knowledge to source guests who stay longer, thus reducing short stays and the costs associated with more change overs.

“All our guests are required to give a minimum of two months’ notice if they need to cancel a booking and any later cancellations will incur a 20 per cent cost, which goes to the holiday homeowners.” Giovanni adds.

Their website is based on their existing model which has been very successful and has been developed through years of experience. Customers will be able to easily navigate around a wide range of quality accommodations. 

For anyone already registered with on-line holiday rental sites, Giovanni can easily integrate their service with the existing providers.

“We really want to meet as many people as possible and help them to get the maximum return for their holiday homes.” Giovanni says. “Our website is not complicated. We keep it simple so that your holiday home looks and sounds perfect to our customers.”

And the first step to signing up to this exciting new business?

“Give me a call or send me an email. I can’t wait to meet you and start a great business relationship with you!” Giovanni says. “Let’s talk without obligations!”
