Interval International and Villa Ridente Club Confirm New Affiliation
Thursday, October 3, 2019
Leading vacation ownership exchange company, Interval International, has just welcomed Villa Ridente Club to its portfolio of European resorts. Located on the west coast of Sicily, Italy, the resort property overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and the Aeolian Islands.
Darren Ettridge, Interval International’s Senior VP of Business Development for Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, stated:
“The family-friendly resort combines Sicily’s sunny climate, spectacular scenery, and regional cuisine to make it a prime destination for vacationers. Villa Ridente Club is an ideal base for our members looking to combine a beach experience with cultural exploration.”
Villa Ridente Club features studio, one-, and two-bedroom suites with amenities like kitchens, private balconies, and flat-screen TVs. On the property, guests will also find two restaurants for incredible Italian dining, private beach access with chairs, umbrellas, kayaks, and beach rentals, as well as a spa, an outdoor swimming pool, a tennis court, a boutique shop, an amphitheater for live shows, and a kids’ club.
Managing Director of Villa Ridente Club Francesco Bo added:
“We believe that offering our owners the ability to exchange their vacation time and stay at hundreds of resorts within Interval’s global network adds value to our product. Through our affiliation, they’ll also enjoy year-round travel and leisure benefits and services.”
Not only can guests find plenty of on-site activities, but there are a number of nearby outdoor attractions, as well. Sailing, biking, boat tours, scuba diving, and snorkeling are among some of the favorites.
Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and just southwest of Italy’s “boot.” Some of its most well-known attractions include the tallest, active volcano in Europe, Mount Etna, the 4th century Romana di Patti, the underwater caverns at Del Bue Beach, and archaeological sites like the Valley of the Temples and the ancient city of Selinunte.
Villa Ridente Club members will be enrolled as individual Interval International members within the Interval Gold status, which entitles them a higher trading power, a variety of exchange opportunities, and other owner benefits. These benefits include Interval Options®, ShortStay Exchange®, Hertz Gold Plus Rewards®, Golf Connection, Dining Connection, and more.
