Private chefs and hosts

Enjoy full board gourmet dining tailored for your family by your private chef and served by a dedicated host. Everything is taken care of - so there's no excuse not to simply lie by the pool sipping an ice-cool drink.

Your chef

Imagine dining at a fabulous gourmet restaurant five days in one week - but with no journey there and back, the place exclusively to yourselves and the option of wearing flip flops to the table if you want. Not to mention first option on whereabouts to eat: at the dining table, on the terrace, beside the pool by candlelight, or on a picnic blanket under an olive tree.

Having a private Scott Dunn chef to take care of breakfast, lunch and dinner is a wonderful luxury for any family. We only employ resourceful, creative, talented professionals, each of whom is passionate enthusiastic about Mediterranean cuisine and the local produce available. They'll talk to you at the beginning of the week and tailor their menu to suit you and your children. And on their night off, they'll even recommend and book a restaurant for you if you like.

Your chef will prepare a continental breakfast for you and a gourmet buffet lunch on six days, and evening canapés and a four-course dinner on five evenings. For sample menus, visit Fine food.

Your host

From the moment you arrive, we want you to sit back, relax and indulge. Your host is there to make sure this is exactly what happens. Our service is understated and discreet, so all the work happens quietly, behind the scenes, leaving you to enjoy your vacation in peace, yet your host is still on hand whenever you need them.

Mid-morning refreshers by the pool, dinner reservations, a spillage that needs clearing up, meal service and general housekeeping are all taken care of. And because our hosts have a wealth of local knowledge, they can chat to you about where to go and what to see, how to find places, and even where's best to park, and which beaches and excursions are best for the children.

Think of your villa host as a hotel manager, concierge and personal assistant rolled into one.
