Art de Vivre, renown for their handpicked portfolio of top worldwide rental properties, has launched their British Country Estate Collection for rental
Art de Vivre present the grandest country homes and estates for rental in Britain. As a British company they are extremely proud to represent these prestigious properties that demonstrate the best of the heritage, culture and hospitality in the British Isles.
As many of the properties are exclusive and rented off-market, the collection presents the unique experiences available at these estates, providing guests with long-lasting memories in beautiful historical locations:
The Great Outdoors
The estates are famed for their balance of wilderness and maintained land and are perfect for walks or even a more adventurous hike. This is a speciality of Corrour Lodge, a modern Scottish revival of a Victorian hunting lodge. The peaks and Loch Ossian nearby make it a perfect choice for guests who love the outdoors.
Traditional rural sports and game hunting is a unique offering at these private estates, whether it be the sought-after Salmon fishing at Gordon Castle, deer stalking at Aldourie Castle or game shooting at historical estates such as Althorp House. With award-winning shoots and fishing stays, our properties exhibit the best and most traditional backdrops for these distinctive traditional experiences.
Corporate Hospitality and Celebrations
Country homes with their vast spaces and hospitality are often used for celebrations. These homes make the perfect venue for banquets, balls, weddings, product launches and parties. The restored estates with a more opulent and modern approach tend to host the most events. Aynhoe Park, on the edge of the Cotswolds, provides an ideal setting for events. This is particularly due to the creative interiors with its hybrid of modern art collections, taxidermy and historical furnishings.
Scotch whisky is world renown and the whisky experiences offered in our new Country Estates collection explores the pinnacle of quality whiskey. Gordon Castle is a short trip from the Speyside distilleries and lesser-known single grain distilleries, which make the perfect visit for the whisky enthusiast.
Golf and Motorsports
Plenty of outdoor competitive sports are on offer and iconic sporting arenas are within a short drive from many of the country estates. Goodwood estate has two fabulous golf courses and is the host of the Festival of Speed; featuring their legendary motor racing circuit.
History and Heritage
The experience of a private estate that’s retained its history and cultural collections is an important part of the country homes experience. Whether it be the hundreds of artworks and paintings of gentry, nobility and monarchs or the personal furnishings of a proud British dynasty. The restoration and maintenance of these extraordinary homes, coupled with the generous hospitality granted, showcases the very best of British heritage.
“We are very excited to be able to offer our clients privileged access to some of the most historically important homes and estates and arrange an array of traditional British pursuits in such memorable surroundings. Privacy and supporting authentic British traditions are at the heart of this collection” said Julie Gauthier, Founder of Art de Vivre Collection.
