Interval International and Blanco Hotel Enter an Exclusive Affiliation Agreement

Leading external timeshare exchange company Interval International (II) has recently welcomed Italy’s Blanco Hotel vacation ownership units to its network. Blanco Hotel is the first timeshare development by Simone Group, an Italian residential construction and hotel management company that has been in the country for over 50 years.

Darren Ettridge, II Senior VP of Business Development in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, added:

“We’re excited that the Simone Group has brought this exceptional new property to market. This addition will certainly add value for Interval members—and access to our network of high-quality resorts in sought-after destinations is sure to appeal to prospective owners of Blanco Hotel.”

Blanco Hotel is located in Castellaneta Marina in the region of Puglia. The resort is in the ideal location for vacationers who are looking for convenient resorts near all of the top area attractions including Italy’s southeastern beaches, lakes, nature reserves, nightlife, and historic landmarks. Some of the most visited places include the Cathedral of San Cataldo, Castellana Caves in Taranto, the Tavole Palatine Temple, and the Metaponto archeological site in Bernalda.

On-site, there are a number of amenities that make up this high-end resort including a restaurant, a private beach, a swimming pool, a garden, a kid’s club, shuttle services, and 24/7 room service. Timeshare accommodations include one- and two-bedroom suites that reflect the resort’s modern and minimalist design with light walls, dark woods, and marble floors. The private balconies also offer incredible views of the ocean.

Blanco Hotel’s Managing Director Roberto Simone stated:

“We chose to affiliate our property with Interval because of its comprehensive member benefits, as well as the quality of service it provides. We are quite confident that having Interval as our partner will be invaluable to our sales effort, and we are looking forward to working with its experienced team for a very long time.”

Blanco Hotel owners will be enrolled as individual Interval Gold members in II, which provides them with access to a plethora of exchange opportunities around the world. In addition, this membership provides other II benefits and services including Interval Options, ShortStay Exchange, Golf Connection, Dining Connection, and Hertz Gold Plus rewards memberships.
