About Us

The RentaVilla Europe Family


As the saying goes "Don't cry over spilt milk!" That's exactly what Hilde Freeman did! As an Austrian living in the United States, Hilde traveled a great deal with her son. Staying in hotels was particularly challenging with a small child. When her son spilled a glass of milk in a hotel restaurant and she was then asked not to return with her child, Hilde decided she had had enough and was going to find a better way, so for her masters degree in business, she chose to write her thesis on a new "family friendly" way of travel. Thus, in 1983 Rent a Home International was born. She ran the business until 1999 when she retired after a skiing accident. During her career, Hilde helped many families avoid the frustrations she had endured!

The business was taken over by present owner Emmanuel de Ricard. Being a Frenchman from the Cote d'Azur, and father of two, Emmanuel thought this would be a golden opportunity to keep his European ties and help people do the thing he loves most...travel! The company name was changed to RentaVillaEurope.com, and for the past eight years Emmanuel and his staff have dedicated themselves to finding just the right places for people to spend their precious vacation time.

Since we at RentaVillaEurope.com believe in representing only the best, we make regular trips to France, Italy, Portugal, Mexico and elsewhere to inspect properties and meet with owners. In the past twenty years we've sent thousands of satisfied travellers abroad! On a regular basis we find new properties to meet your changing needs so we can better serve you. We try to be sensitive to what travelers like and need, and strive to satisfy. We have recently changed our name to RentaVillaEurope.com to match our web address. The RentaVillaEurope.com family believes in family vacations and making them just what they should be...fun, relaxing, and full of discovery!
