Interval International Partners with New Italian Affiliate

Interval International

The Messapia Hotel & Resort, one of Southern Italy’s most prized properties, has chosen to partner with Interval International. The seaside resort, located in Santa Maria di Leuca, will offer its owners a new exchange option through Interval, and stands to gain new guests through the company’s massive exchange network.

The newest addition to the Interval International exchange catalogue offers 12 resplendent acres of land along the coast of the Salento Peninsula in Puglia. The Messapia Hotel & Resort’s one bedroom villa-style units feature furniture and decor made from local artisans as well as picture-perfect patios overlooking the countryside. The resort also features a health spa, a seawater swimming pool, an on-site restaurant, and more.

Darren Ettridge, Interval’s senior vice president of resort sales and business development for Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, spoke to the importance of the company’s newest affiliate:

“This villa-style resort is the ideal home base for members interested in exploring one of Italy’s most in-demand coastal vacation areas. A variety of outdoor leisure activities are available for those seeking sun, sand, and surf in a sophisticated Mediterranean setting.”

New timeshare buyers at the Messapia Hotel & Resort will be automatically enrolled within Interval International, allowing them to access timeshare exchange services. They’ll also be registered as Gold members, entitling them to advanced owner benefits and exchange services. Messapia owners can also take advantage of Interval Options to gain unique perks like guided tours, cruises, car rental discounts, and much more.

Maurizio Galati, managing director of Aurora Club S.R.L. (which owns the Messapia Hotel), expressed his excitement for the new affiliation:

“Interval’s stellar reputation and impeccable credentials as an industry leader are very important to our family who has a long history with the company. We are delighted to carry on this tradition and add our new project to its global vacation exchange network.”
